Ethan With a Huge Addition For My Set

My friend, Ethan, promised me a while back that he would try to get me Mike Scioscia for my 1987 Topps set.  He ended up coming through, and the card finally arrived today.  I think this was one of my cards that I sent to him back during Spring Training, but I don't remember.

Scioscia (b. 1958) played in the majors from 1980 to 1992 for the Dodgers.  He had 1,131 hits, 68 home runs and a .259 batting average.  He was an All Star in 1989 and 1990 and finished 18th in the NL MVP voting in 1985.  He won the World Series with the Dodgers in 1981 and 1988.

As a manager, he led the Angels from 2000 to 2018.  His managerial record was 1,650-1,428 (.536 %).  He won the World Series in 2002.  He was the AL Manager of the Year in 2002 and 2009.

Thanks so much for getting this done for me, Ethan!
