TTM Success - Tommy Helms
Helms (b. 1941) was bown in Charlotte, NC and is the uncle of Wes Helms, another TTM success that I have had. He played in the majors from 1964 to 1977 for the Reds, Astros, Pirates and Red Sox. He had 1,342 hits, 34 home runs and a .269 batting average. He was the NL Rookie of the Year in 1966, was an All Star twice (1967 and 1968), won the Gold Glow Award twice (1970 and 1971) and finished 25th in the 1968 NL MVP Award voting. He appeared in the 1970 World Series in a loss to the Orioles and also appeared on the 1983 Hall of Fame ballot where he received 0.3% of the vote.
Helms managed the Reds in 1988 and 1989 to a won-loss record of 28-36.
I mailed to Helms on February 21 and got the cards back on March 7, for a 14-day TAT.
