TTM Success - Jeffrey Leonard

PastPros has been adding some new signers to their roster, and a few of them are guys that have been needing for my 1987 Topps set.  One of the new guys on there was Jeffrey Leonard.  I went ahead and got the card in the mail so I could cross him off of my list.

Leonard (b. 1955) played in the majors from 1977 to 1990 for the Dodgers, Astros, Giants, Brewers and Mariners.  He had 1,342 hits, 144 home runs and a .266 batting average.  He was a two-time All Star (1987 and 1989) and was the 1987 NLCS MVP.  His best MVP finish was 20th in 1983; he was second in the 1979 NL Rookie of the Year voting, behind Rick Sutcliffe.  Also, baseball-reference has one of his nicknames listed as "Penitentiary Face".

I mailed to Leonard on April 15 and got the card back on July 16, for a 92-day TAT.
