TTM Success - Chris Welsh

This TTM request had been out to Chris Welsh for so long, I went ahead and had a friend of mine get me a signed 1987 Topps from Reds Fest a while after I sent these cards out.  I had forgotten about these, until they finally came in earlier this month.  I was glad to finally get these cards back, and it definitely was a pleasant surprise.  The above 1983 Fleer turned out great.  I don't have very many of this year of Fleer in my autograph album.
He also sent back a 1982, 1986 and a 1987 Topps.  Since I already had a signed 87 in my set, I'll just file this one in my autograph album.

Welsh (b. 1955) played in the majors from 1981 to 1983 and 1985 to 1986 for the Padres, Expos, Rangers and Reds.  He had a record of 22-31 with 192 strike outs and a 4.45 ERA.

I mailed to Welsh on May 4, 2017, and got the cards back on November 3, 2022, for a 2,009-day TAT.  Not my longest wait, but definitely a long one.
