  • Mike D's 1981 Topps Traded TTM Auto Project

    We wrapped our 1982 Topps Traded TTM project late last October.

    I recently picked up the Topps Traded set from the year prior, 1981, and think it'll be a nice set to use for an installment of my TTM projects series.

    With 132 cards, the 1981 Topps Traded set is numbered 727 to 858, literally updating the base set.

    The key cards in the set are:

    727. Danny Ainge (XRC)
    816. Tim Raines (XRC)
    850. Fernando Valenzuela (XRC)

    The set also contains cards of Hall of Famers Bert Blyleven, Rollie Fingers, Carlton Fisk, Joe Morgan, Bruce Sutter, Don Sutton, and Dave Winfield.

    Let's get started!

    The first five:

    727. Danny Ainge (Card Front) (Card Back)
    728. Doyle Alexander (Card Front) (Card Back)
    729. Gary Alexander (Card Front) (Card Back)
    730. Billy Almon (Card Front) (Card Back)
    731. Joaquin Andujar (Card Front) (Card Back)

    Let's take a look at the signing habits of the players in this group:

    Danny Ainge has a 27% success rate on SCN, with no successes since at least 2008. We'll skip him.

    Doyle Alexander has only one success, ever, on SCN. We'll skip him, as well.

    Gary Alexander has a 50% success rate on SCN, but no successes since mid-2012. We'll pass on him.

    Billy Almon has a 94% success rate on SCN, with recent successes. We'll send a request his way. Shouldn't take long to get there...he lives only a few miles up the road!

    Joaquin Andujar shows no successes on SCN, ever. He appears to live in the Dominican Republic. We'll pass on him.
