TTM Success - Carlos Gonzalez

I took a chance on Carlos Gonzalez during the COVID lockdowns when I saw that he had signed for a few folks.  I had gotten this 2017 Topps Inception as a throw in from my friend, Anthony, at a National a couple years ago.  I was pleasantly surprised to see the card come back.

Gonzalez (b. 1985) played in the majors from 2008 to 2019 for the A's, Rockies, Indians and Cubs.  He was signed by the Mariners in February, but was released in June.  He has 1,432 hits, 234 home runs and a .285 batting average.

He was the 2010 NL Batting Champ (.336), and finished 3rd in the MVP voting that season.  He was a 3-time All Star (2012, 2013 and 2016, and a 3-time Gold Glove Award winner (2010, 2012, 2013).  He also won the Silver Slugger award twice (2010, 2015).

I mailed to Gonzalez on April 21 and got the card back on June 29, for a 69-day TAT.
