    Mike D's 1987 TTM Auto Project

    With my 1986 Topps Traded TTM Project wrapping up, it's time to start another project. Using the same multi-set system I used in the 1990 TTM Auto Project, I'm going to start a project based on several 1987 sets I have.

    The 1987 sets I'll be working with are:

    1987 Donruss Rookies - 56 cards

    1987 Fleer Update - 132 cards

    1987 Topps Traded - 132 cards

    That's 320 total cards. I'll break the cards up by team and work through each team to see who signs and will get requests.

    I'll work through the teams in alphabetical order, which means we'll start with the Atlanta Braves. Hope you find this project enjoyable...hopefully we'll see a decent number of good signers and a lot of successes!

    Atlanta Braves

    The first team we'll look at is the Atlanta Braves. The sets contain a total of 5 Braves cards, with 3 unique players.

    1987 Donruss Rookies

    none

    41T. Albert Hall (Front) (Back)
    54T. Dion James (Front) (Back)
    85T. Graig Nettles (Front) (Back)

    Let's take a closer look at the players and their signing habits:

    Albert Hall has a 25% success rate on SCN, with no successes since 2007. We'll pass on him.

    Dion James shows no successes on SCN, ever, in 15 total attempts. We'll skip him.

    Graig Nettles has a 54% success rate on SCN, with no successes since 2010. We'll pass on him, as well.

    Not a great start, although with only 3 Braves players in the sets, it's a small sample!

    Chuck Crim has a 12% success rate on sCN. we'll skip him.

    Mike Birkbeck has a 93% success rate on SCN, although no successes in 4 attempts this year. I'll give him a try, though, based on his track record.

    Greg Brock has an 84% success rate with recent successes. We'll give him a try.

    Juan Castillo has no successes on SCN, and only one attempt. I'm guessing he lives in his native DR. We'll skip him.

    Jim Paciorek has a 93% success rate, but no successes since last June. I wonder if he's moved? We'll pass on him, for now.

    Tom Treblehorn has a 90% success rate on SCN, with recent successes. We'll give him a try.

    Juan Berenguer has a solid success rate, as well. We actually sent these cards along with the 1986 Topps Traded request we sent his way. That request is still outstanding (sent 3/20).
