TTM Success – Kelly Gruber!!

TTM Success – Kelly Gruber!!

In just under 100 days(97 to be exact), Kelly Gruber returned his 1989 Topps card to me with his autograph neatly applied.

I enjoyed watching Gruber play third base back during the 1980’s.  A third baseman myself, Gruber was a great teacher of how to stay in front of the ball.  Of all of the third baseman I watched regularly during my Little League days, I always thought that he was among the best at knocking the ball down and keeping it in front of him – a lesson coaches would drill into my head for years!

A 10-year veteran, Gruber was a 2-time All-star and member of the 1992 World Series Champion Toronto Blue Jays.  During his best season in the majors, 1990, Gruber finished in 4th place for the AL MVP while also winning the Gold Glove and Silver Slugger awards.

Thank you for the great autograph Mr. Gruber!!

11 More TTM Requests Are In The Mail!!!

I told you I was serious…

It took me a little time to get organized, but now that I am, I will be going on another autograph through the mail request spree!!!

For this round, I am hitting up a few guys for a second time but also going after many new ones too.

I just got home from dropping these off at the post office:

The players:  Steve Avery, Fernando Valenzuela, Kelly Gruber, Jeff Kent, Don Mattingly, Bill Russell, Lee Smith, Don Zimmer, Bobby Thomson, Ron Cey, and Jeff Reardon.

And like always, I will share each and every success and failure with you as they are returned back to me.

And if all goes according to plan, I should be able to put together another round of mail after I attend a baseball card show this weekend and scoop up some more cards.

Wish me luck!!!!

1989 Topps – Pack #6

Here is what I pulled from pack #6 of the 6 that I will be opening today:

pack 6a

pack 6b

Notable:  A Gregg Olson rookie card.  The ‘Cobra’ Dave Parker.  Kelly Gruber was a tough third baseman.  And Wally Backman was a fun guy to watch play.

Pick of the Pack:   The Phillies Team card featuring Michael Jack Schmidt.  It would take a lot for any card in a pack of ’89 Topps to surpass the great Mike Schmidt.
