TTM Success - Enos Cabell

I added cards to two different sets by answering a signing with Enos Cabell.  I knew I needed Cabell for my 1987 Topps set, but I was pleasantly surprised when I saw that he was a former Oriole and he had a card in the 1991 Crown set.
Cabell has a great signature, and it showed up very well on both cards.  I was happy with how sharp that 1987 Topps looked.

Cabell (b. 1949) played in the majors from 1972 to 1986 for the Orioles, Astros, Giants, Tigers and Dodgers.  He had 1,647 hits, 60 home runs and a .277 batting average.  His best MVP finish was 22nd in 1978 (NL).  Strangely, though, for someone who had as long a career as he had, Cabell never appeared on a Hall of Fame ballot.

I mailed to the private signing on January 3 and got the cards back signed on January 31, for a 28-day TAT.  I paid a fee of $15.00/card.
