TTM Success - Jim Frey

I was able to put a couple 80s cards to use when my good friend, Max, told me that former Cubs manager Jim Frey signed TTM.  I got these 84 and 85 Topps signed, and they turned out really nice.

Frey (b. 1931) managed the Royals in 1980 and 1981 and the Cubs in 1984, 85 and 86.  He took the Royals to the World Series in 1980, losing to the Phillies.  Frey took the Cubs to the NLCS in 1984 where they lost in 5 games, 3-2 (back when the NLCS was a best of 5 series).

Frey was the NL Manager of the Year in 1984.

I mailed to Frey on March 28 and got the cards back on April 11 for a 14-day TAT.
