TTM Success - Brooks Carey

I got this card at the National a few years ago when I bought the 1981 TCMA Cal Ripken.  THe sell gave me this card as a throw in, and I have had it in my box for a long time.  I finally found an address for Carey and sent it on its way.

Carey (b. 1956) was a 10th round pick by the Orioles in the 1978 June Amateur Draft out of Florida State University.  He played in the minors from 1978 to 1982 in the Orioles and Reds systems, reaching AAA.  He had a record of 37-38 with 437 strike outs and a 3.75 ERA.

I mailed to Carey on August 27 and got the card back on December 15 for a 110-day TAT.  Carey also included a note apologizing for the delay.
