TTM Success - Jake Peavy

Finally, another TTM success came in.  They reaply have gotten dry, even guys who normally return pretty well are slow for me right now.  I got this one from a private signing with Jake Peavy today, and it turned out great.

I picked two really nice cards; the above 2008 Upper Deck is just a great shot.
This one is a 2007 Topps Wal Mart card that was much like their Trading Card History insert set that they put out in 2008.  I was glad I found this one before I sent off to the signing, so it got included.

Peavy (b. 1981) played in the majors from 2002 to 2016 for the Padres, White Sox, Red Sox and Giants.  He had a record of 152-126 with 2,207 strike outs and a 3.63 ERA.  He was the NL Cy Young Award winner in 2007.  He was an All Star in 2005, 2007 and 2012.  He was a Gold Glove Award winner in 2012. Peavy won the World Series with the Red Sox in 2013 and with the Giants in 2014.  He appeared on the 2022 Hall of Fame ballot, bit received no votes.

I mailed to the signing on March 4 and got the cards back today (June 21), for a 109-day TAT.  I paid a fee of $25/card.
