TTM Success - Pete Mackanin

I got a couple nice Topps cards signed by Pete Mackanin recently.  He signed two 1976 Topps and the the 1982 for me.  He has a pretty nice signature, and the cards turned out really nice.

Mackanin (b. 1951) played in the majors from 1973 to 1981 for the Rangers, Expos, Phillies and Twins.  He had 355 hits, 30 home runs and a .226 batting average.

Mackanin managed the Pirates for 26 games in 2005 to a record of 12-14, then managed the Reds in 2007 to a record of 41-39.  He, then was named the Phillies manager after Ryne Sandberg left and has managed them ever since.  His record with the Phillies is 119-152.  His overall managerial record is 172-205.

I mailed to Mackanin on February 21 and got the cards back on April 7, for a 45-day TAT.
