I didn't do a great job keeping track of my ttm requests near the end of last year. I got this card back from artist Dick Perez sometime in December, but I'm not sure of the specific date and I also don't know when I sent it, but my guess is that it took about a month.
Dick Perez is probably most well known for his work for Donruss and the Diamond Kings cards. You can see that he was honored with a card of his own. I know of at least one other Diamond King card that features him, but it's a checklist and the picture of him is really small.
Baseball cards featuring someone, or something, other than a baseball player are fairly common these days, especially with Allen & Ginter, but this 1994 card is an early example of a card in a baseball set featuring a non baseball player.
Can you think of an earlier card in a baseball set that features someone other than a baseball player or official (I know there are cards that have featured league presidents and the commissioner)?
