Carlton Fisk was among the last few Hall of Famers that I needed for my 1987 Topps set. I had put off adding him to the set for some time now, since his fee was so high. I finally got the money together and sent to him. Before I did, however, I found another card that I wanted to send.
The above 2013 Gypsy Queen Collisions card turned out amazingly and I am glad I spent the extra money to get it signed.
Of course, I got my 87 done, as well, and crossed Fisk off of the list.
I mailed to Fisk on October 9 and got the cards back on November 4, for a 26-day TAT. This was also my 700th signed 1987 Topps. I paid a fee of $50/card.
