TTM Success - Willie Randolph

Another private signing came through where I was able to get another 1987 Topps signed for my set.  I had been waiting for a Willie Randolph signing for a while, and one finally came up.  I got my card done, and it looks awesome.

Randolph (b. 1954) played in the majors from 1975 to 1992 for the Pirates, Yankees, Dodgers, A's, Brewers and Mets.  He had 2,210 hits, 54 home runs and a .276 batting average.  He was a 6-time All Star (1976, 1977, 1980, 1981, 1987 and 1989).  He won the Silver Slugger Award in 1980 and his best MVP finish was 15th (AL) that same season.  He won the World Series with the Yankees in 1977.

Randolph managed the Mets from 2005 to 2008.  His managerial record was 302-253 (.544 win %).

He appeared on the 1998 Hall of Fame ballot, but only received 1.1% of the vote.

I mailed to the signing on April 9 and got the card back on May 14, for a 35-day TAT.  I paid a fee of $40.00.
