TTM Success - Willie Upshaw

Antother 1987 Topps team leaders card came off the list recently, when I took part in a private signing with Willie Upshaw.  I was able to finish this card that I had already gotten signed by George Bell.  Lots of folks thought that was Fred McGriff on the card, but it is definitely Upshaw, and now the card is complete.
Of course, I had to get Upshaw on his base card, as well, and it turned out great.

Upshaw (b. 1957) played in the majors in 1978 and from 1980 to 1988 for the Blue Jays and Indians.  He had 1,103 hits, 123 home runs and a .262 batting average.  His best MVP finish was 11th, in 1983.

I mailed to the signing on December 15 and got the cards back on January 23, for a 39-day TAT.  I forgot what I paid.
