  • Mike D's 1989 TTM Auto Project

    With my 1987 TTM Project wrapping up, it's time to start another project. Using the same multi-set system I have used a few times now, I'm going to start a project based on several 1989 sets I have.

    The 1989 sets I'll be working with are:

    1989 Donruss Rookies - 56 cards

    1989 Fleer Update - 132 cards

    1989 Score Update - 110 cards

    1989 Topps Traded - 132 cards

    That's 430 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!

    Jeff Treadway has a 26% success rate on SCN. We'll pass on him.

    Jody Davis has an 87% success rate, but no successes since December. He appears to have stopped signing.

    Darrell Evans has a 65% success rate on SCN, but no successes since 2010. Another guy who appears to have stopped signing.

    Tommy Gregg has an 8% success rate on SCN, with no successes since 2003 (and only 2 overall). We'll skip him.

      52T. Brian Holton (Front) (Back)
      81T. Randy Milligan (Front) (Back)
      89T. Gregg Olson (Front) (Back)

      Note: I acquired the 1989 Donruss Rookies set some time after the others, so in some cases I had already sent cards along with requests from other projects. In those cases, I won't send another request with just the 1989 Donruss Rookies card.

      Let's take a closer look at the signing habits of each player:

      Bob Milacki has an 81% success rate on SCN. I sent the 1989 Fleer Update card to him as part of the 1990 send-outs back in September.

      Craig Worthington has a 70% success rate on sCN but no successes since last November. We'll pass on him.

      Gregg Olson has a 97% success rate on SCN. I sent the Score and Topps card out with the 1990 send-out project and had a success. Results can be seen here and here.

      Steve Finley has a 32% success rate on SCN, with no successes since 2010. We'll pass on him.

      Mike Devereaux has a 27% success rate on SCN, with no successes since 2010. We'll pass on him, as well.

      Phil Bradley has a 93% success rate on sCN with recent successes. We'll send a request his way.

      Kevin Hickey is deceased. RIP.

      Brian Holton has no successes on sCN, ever, in 18 total attempts. we'll skip him.

      Randy Milligan has a 19% success rate on SCN, with no successes since 2010. We'll pass on him.

      Bob Melvin has a 7% success rate on sCN. We'll pass on him, as well.

      Keith Moreland has a 65% success rate, and seems to be signing recently c/o the Cubs. I'll give him a try there.

      Pete Harnisch has a 71% success rate on SCN. We sent this card to him along with the 1990 send-out project. The resulting success can be seen here.

      5 requests, 8 cards, 2 successes.

                    127T. Eddie Williams (Front) (Back)

                    Let's take a closer look at the signing habits of each player:

                    Donn Pall has an 89% success rate on SCN. We sent the 1989 Score Update card to him as part of the 1990 send-outs, and had a success, which can be viewed here. We won't send the '89 DR card to him since we've already had a success from him.

                    Carlos Martinez
                    is deceased. RIP.

                    Ken Patterson
                    has a 67% success rate on SCN, but no successes since last April. Appears to have stopped signing.

                    Matt Merullo has a 96% success rate on SCN. We sent the 1989 Fleer Update card to him as part of the 1990 send-out, and had a success, which can be found here. We won't send the '89 DR card to him since we've already had a success from him.

                    Mark Davis has a 60% success rate on SCN. We'll pass on him. Interesting tidbit...Fleer seems to have confused him with the pitcher of the same name...on the card back, it shows the before/after AS break image for a pitcher.

                    Ron Kittle has a 93% success rate on SCN with recent successes. We'll send a request his way.

                    Steve Rosenberg has an 83% sucess rate on SCN with recent successes. We'll send a reqeust his way, as well.

                    Robin Ventura
                    has a 37% success rate on SCN, with no successes since 2009. We'll pass on him.
