TTM Success - Johnny Damon

This was a big one.  It was also a TTM success that I had waited quite a while for.  In the end, the wait was worth it, I got a TTM success from Johnny Damon.

The above 2004 Topps Cracker Jack card looks amazing.  I'm so glad I sent that one along.
I also got these two 2005 Topps cards signed, which turned out really well.  He didn't sign my 2007 Topps Opening Day, but I'm not complaining.

Damon (b. 1973) played in the majors from 1995 to 2012 for the Royals, A's, Red Sox, Yankees, Tigers, Rays and Indians.  He had 2,769 hits, 235 home runs and a .284 batting average.  He was an All Star in 2002 and 2005.  His best finish in the AL MVP voting was 13th in 2005.  He won the World Series with the Red Sox in 2004 and with the Yankees in 2009.  Damon appeared on the Hall of Fame ballot in 2018, but received only 1.9% of the vote.

I mailed to Damon on October 26, 2017, and got the cards back on February 2, 2022, for a 1,580-day TAT.

That's a long return time. Big fan of Royals Johnny Damon due to my college roommate and I hyping his name up during baseball highlight shows.
