In my longest wait since I got back into the TTM game, Lance Parrish returned all 3 of the cards I sent him. And it took 278 days!!!
I had seen several returns in the last week from Parrish and all of them were lengthy in terms of the wait time. I am just happy that I am in the group that has now added Parrish’s great signature to my collection.
Parrish has a nice, artsy signature. Of the three I got back, I have to say that the ’86 Topps is my favorite!!
Thank you, Mr. Parrish!!

1967 Topps Jim Palmer – World Series Highlights
Being that we’re right in the midst of the 2009 World Series, I thought I would show off the newest addition to my Jim Palmer player collection that honor’s Palmer’s contribution to the Baltimore Orioles 1966 championship!
In that match-up, the O’s played the Dodgers and Palmer as phenomenal!!! As a rookie, Palmer battled Sandy Koufax in Game 2 of the series and emerged victorious. He pitched a complete game shutout, allowing just 4 hits. He also struck out 6 batters while walking 3. It was a dominant performance by the 20-year old, and he and his Orioles teammates ended up sweeping the series 4-0!!
