TTM Success - Dave Matragna

Something I've learned is that these early 2000s thicker Bowman cards do not do well in the mail. The machinery seems to put crease lines on the cards.  Oh well.  This 2003 Bowman Dave Matragna card still looks cool, even if the USPS beat it up.  I'll probably get myself a sheet of non-machinable stamps and use those when I send out these thicker cards.

Matragna (b. 1977) played in the majors in 2003 and 2005 for the Astros and Angels.  He had 1 hit, 1 home run and 1 RBI.  His career batting average was .167.

I mailed to Matragna on February 6 and got the card back today (April 11), for a 65-day TAT.
