TTM Success - Hanley Ramirez

When I saw a private signing pop up for Hanley Ramirez, I got really excited for some reason.  He was never one of my favored players, but I did know that I had some nice cards of his that I would like to get signed.  So, I joined the signing with the intention of getting a card done, and ended up sending two.  I also sent one for my good friend, Gerard.
Both of the cards I sent turned out nicely.  The 2007 Turkey Red (top) may be completed someday with Jose Bautista, but for now, it is in my album.  The above 2008 Piece of History blue parallel was a nice find in my box and also looks great in my album. 

Ramirez (b. 1983) played in the majors from 2005 to 2019 for the Red Sox, Marlins Dodgers and Indians.  He had 1,834 hits, 271 home runs and a .289 batting average.  He was the 2009 NL batting champion and a three-time All Star (2008, 2009 and 2010).  He was the 2006 NL Rookie of the Year.  His best MVP finish was 2nd (2009; NL).

I mailed to the signing on November 14 and got the cards back on March 13, for a 119-day TAT.  I paid a fee of $50.00/card (I think).
