TTM Success: Rick Reuschel

Let's end the year on a TTM note. Former Yankees pitcher Rock Reuschel returned my two cards signed. It took just over a week, so it was a fast return.
Reuschel is best known for his work in the NL, notably with the Cubs. He also had good seasons with the Pirates and Giants. He was a 3-time All-Star and won 214 games in his big league career. He also brought home two Gold Gloves and two third place Cy Young finishes.

The Yankees acquired him mid-season in 1981 and he helped propel the team to the AL Pennant. He was ineffective in the playoffs though, and never pitched another game in Pinstripes after the 1981 World Series. However, he did end up pitching until 1991, and was a key member of the Giants staff of the late '80s.

Thanks to Mr. Reuschel for signing these cards so quickly.
