TTM Success - Mike Scott

I added another card to my signed 1987 Topps set when I took part in a private signing with Mike Scott.  I had looked at buying some of his cards a while back, but never pulled the trigger.  I added this one, though, and can now cross him off of my list.

Scott (b. 1955) played in the majors from 1979 to 1991 for the Mets and Astros.  He had a career record of 124-108 with 1,469 strike outs and a 3.54 ERA.  He was the 1986 NL Cy Young Award winner.  He led the league in ERA in 1986 (2.22) and won 20 games in 1989.  He was a 3-time All Star (1986, 1987 and 1989).  His best finish in the NL MVP voting was 10th in 1986.

Scott appeared on the 1997 Hall of Fame ballot, but received only 0.4% of the vote.

I mailed to the signing on October 15 and got the card back on November 7, for a 23-day TAT.
