TTM Success - Glenn Davis

Another private signing came along that helped me with my 1987 Topps set.  This time, I got an autograph from Glenn Davis.  Orioles fans know Davis well.  He was part of one of the worst trades in MLB history, where the Orioles got Davis and the Astros got Pete Harnisch, Steve Finley and Curt Schilling.  Davis would vastly underperform for the Orioles, and the three players that the Astros got did pretty well.

Davis (b. 1961) played in the majors from 1094 to 1993 for the Astros and Orioles.  He had 965 hits, 190 home runs and a .259 batting average.  He was a 2-time All Star (1986 and 1989) and finished second in the 1986 NL MVP voting.  

I mailed to the signing on July 6 and got the card back on July 30, for a 24-day TAT.  I paid a fee of $20.00.
