TTM Success - Jim Sundberg

I had sent t Jim Sundberg back in 2016 or so, but never got a return, so when I saw a private signing come up for him, I went ahead and spent the money to get my 1987 Topps signed.  The card is now done, and if my TTM ever comes back, I'll have an extra one I can trade.

Sundberg (b. 1951) played in the majors from 1974 to 1989 for the Rangers, Brewers, Royals and Cubs.  He had 1,493 hits, 95 home runs and a .248 batting average.  He was an All Star 3 times (1974, 1978 and 1984) and a Gold Glove Award winner 6 times (1976 to 1981).  His best MVP finish was 15th (1977 and 1978).  He won the World Series with the Royals in 1985.

I mailed to the private signing on August 29 and got the card back on October 21, for a 53-day TAT.  I paid a fee of $12.00.
