TTM Success - Jeff Reed
Reed (b. 1962) played in the majors from 1984 to 2000 for the Twins, Expos, Reds, Giants, Rockies and Cubs. His 2001 Topps shows him in an Astros uniform, but he didn't make the squad that season. Interestingly enough, his baseball-reference page makes no mention of him signing with the Astros. It says he signed with the Cubs on January 16, 2001, but the back of his 2001 Topps card says he signed with the Astros on January 17, 2001.
He had 774 hits, 61 home runs and a .250 batting average. He appeared in the 1990 NLCS with the Reds, but did not make it into a game during the 1990 World Series that they won. I assume he got a ring with them anyway.
I mailed to Reed on August 5 and got the cards back on August 26, for a 21-day TAT.
