TTM Success - Jermaine Dye

The $40 I paid for the 2020 Harvey Address Book was well worth it when I got this success back from Jermaine Dye.

I had a ton of Dye cards, but had to narrow it down to the three that I ended up sending in.  I really liked the above 2007 Allen & Ginter, and it turned out great.
The 2007 Perez sketch card from 07 Ginter turned out really well, too, even though I wasn't a big fan of the cards.  Some of them just looked goofy.  Still, I didn't have any signed ones in my album, so this Dye will be a nice addition.

Finally, the 2005 Fleer (I think it was Fleer Tradition) also looks really sharp.

Dye (b. 1974) played in the majors from 1996 to 2009 for the Braves, Royals, A's and White Sox.  He had 1,779 hits, 325 home runs and a .274 batting average.  He finished 6th in the 1996 N Rookie of the Year voting.  He was a 2-time All Star (2000 and 2006), Gold Glove Award winner (2000) and Silver Slugger (2006).  He hit 44 home runs during the 2006 season, and finished 5th in the AL MVP voting.  Dye won the World Series with the White Sox in 2005 and was the MVP of that series.

He appeared on the 2015 Hall of Fame ballot, but received  no votes.

I mailed to Dye on April 25 and got the cards back on May 15, for a 20-day TAT.

Dye was a solid player. I remember he spent a few years in Oakland... but it seems like his best years were in KC and Chicago.
