TTM Success - Pedro Guerrero

I had heard sometime last year, that Pedro Guerrero has a health scare.  So, I was surprised to see that his name popped up as part of a private signing a couple months ago.  I was also surprised to see that I had no Pedro Guerrero cards in my 5,000-count box of 1987 Topps.  So, I had to find one online and send the card that I had in my 87 set, so I could get it to the signing in time.  Also, I didn't see the signing until something like 10 days out, so I was really worried that the card wouldn't get there in time.  Luckily, it did, and I was able to replace the Guerrero for my set.  This auto looks really awesome, and I am glad I can add this to the 87 album.

Guerrero (b. 1956) played in the majors from 1978 to 1992 for the Dodgers and Cardinals.  He had 1,618 hits, 215 home runs and a .300 career batting average.  He won the 1981 World Series, in which he was also crowned the World Series MVP.  He was a 5-time All Star (1981, 1983, 1985, 1987 and 1989).  His best MVP finish was 3rd (1982 and 1985).  He appeared on the 1998 Hall of Fame ballot, but received only 1.3% of the vote.

I mailed to the private signing on February 18 and got the card back on March 2, for a 13-day TAT.  I paid a fee of $10.00.
