TTM Success - Juan Pierre

Juan Pierre had been in my "to be TTMed" stack for quite a while before I finally saw an opening in which to get the cards to him.  I sent some nice cards, like the above 2005 Topps Turkey Red.  This card looks great.  I used to have a bunch of these, but sold off a lot of them over the years.
I also sent off this 2003 Fleer Focus, which will look great in my album.

Pierre (b. 1977) played in the majors from 2000 to 2013 for the Rockies, Marlins, Cubs, Dodgers, White Sox and Phillies.  He had 2,217 hits, 18 home runs and a .295 batting average.  He led the NL in hits in 2004 and 2006, and had 200 or more hits in four seasons.  He led the NL in stolen bases in 2001 and 2003, and led the AL in 2,010.  His 614 stolen bases rank 18th, all-time.  His best MVP finish was 10th (NL) in 2003.  He won the World Series with the Marlins in 2003.  Pierre appeared on the Hall of Fame ballot in 2019, but received no votes.

I mailed to Pierre on March 21 and got the cards back on September 13, for a 176-day TAT.
