TTM Success - Phil Garner
I had a plan to send TTM to former manager, Phil Garner, and was about set on what I would send, when I found the above 2000 Fleer Greats of the Game. I knew when I saw it, the card would be the highlight of any success I was able to get from him. I was right. The card looks great. I love the bold yellow Pirates jersey.
Garner (b. 1949) played in the majors from 1973 to 1988 for the A's, Pirates, Astros, Dodgers and Giants. He had 1,594 hits, 109 home runs and a .260 batting average. He was a three-time All Star (1976, 1980 and 1981) and won the World Series in 1979 with the Pirates.
Garner managed the Brewers from 1992 to 1999; the Tigers from 2000 to 2002 and the Astros from 2004 to 2007. His career managerial record is 985-1054 (.483 %).
I mailed to Garner on February 27 and got the cards back on March 10, for an 11-day TAT.
