TTM Success - Chuck Finley

A super tough 1987 Topps was finally taken off of the checklist when I got this TTM success back from a private signing with Chuck Finley.  I had been waiting for a while for a signing to come up, and I finally got into one.

Finley (b. 1962) played in the majors from 198 to 2002 for the Angels, Indians and Cardinals.  He had a record of 200-173 with 2,610 strike outs and a 3.85 ERA.  He was a five-time All Star (1989, 1990, 1995, 1996 and 2000).  His best (and only) finish in the Cy Young voting was 7th (1990, AL).

Fun fact, at one point, Finley was married to Tawny Kitaen (the model from the Whitesnake video).

I mailed to the signing on September 20 and got the card back on November 4, for a 5-day TAT.  I paid a fee of $29.00.

That's an odd price to pay for his signature. Solid player though, congrats!
