TTM Success - Chuck Knoblauch

Here is another card that I had found and put aside in a stack of cards that I really wanted to get signed.  This is a 1998 Topps Focal Point featuring Chuck Knoblauch.  I just thought the card looked really cool, and would look nice in my autograph album.  I saw a signing for Knoblauch show up on Facebook, so I went ahead and sent the card in.  I also met Knoblauch at the National and had my photo taken with him, since Michael was unable to use one of his photo passes.

Knoblauch (b. 1968) played in the majors from 1991 to 2002 for the Twins, Yankees and Royals.  He had 1,839 hits, 98 home runs and a .289 batting average.  He was a 4-time All Star (1992, 1994, 1996 and 1997) and a Silver Slugger Award winner (1997).  He was the 1991 AL Rookie of the Year.  He won the World Series with the Twins in 1991 and with the Yankees in 1998, 1999 and 2000.  He appeared on the 2008 Hall of Fame ballot, but received only 0.2% of the vote.

I mailed to the signing on June 9 and got the card back on August 2, for a 54-day TAT.
