TTM Success - Mark Prior
Prior (b. 1980) was a first round draft pick (43rd overall) by the Yankees in the 1998 June Amateur Draft, but didn't sign. He was, again, a first round pick (2nd overall) during the 2001 June Amateur Draft, this time by the Cubs. He played in the majors 2002 to 2006 for the Cubs, amassing a 42-29 record with 757 strike outs and a 3.51 ERA. Never quite realizing his phenom potential, Prior showed flashes of brilliance (he went 18-6 with a 2.43 ERA in 2003 and finished 3rd in the Cy Young Voting, 9th in the MVP voting, and was an All Star), but was beset by injuries.
I mailed to Prior on February 5, 2019, and got the cards back on March 23, 2020, for a 412-day TAT. I sent the cards to Dodgers Spring Training camp.
