TTM Success - Bobby Grich

I added some nice cards of a former Oriole to my album with this TTM success from Bobby Grich.  I wanted to make sure I got the above 1991 Crown Orioles card done when I sent to him, and it turned out really well.
I also sent these (1973 Topps, 1981 Topps and 1987 Topps) cards that I had been sitting on for a long time, and finally got around to sending.

Grich (b. 1949) played in the majors from 1970 to 1986 for the Orioles and Angels.  He had 1,833 hits, 224 home runs and a .266 batting average.  He was an All Star in 1972, 1976, 1979, 1980 and 1982.  His best MVP finish was 8th in 1979.  He was a 4-time Gold Glove Award winner (1973 to 1976) and a Silver Slugger Award winner (1981).  He was tied with three other players (Tony Armas, Dwight Evans and Eddie Murray) for the AL Lead in home runs in 1981 (22).  He was on the 1992 Hall of Fame ballot, but only received 2.6% of the vote.

I mailed to Grich on October 28 and got the cards back on January 31, for a 95-day TAT.  I paid a fee of $5/card.
