TTM Success - Bob Boone

It took a while, but I got a signed 1987 Topps signed TTM from Bob Boone.  I had gotten one from my friend, Michael, and now need to get him the one he gave me back to him.  I told him I would, since he really didn't want to part with his in the first place.

Boone (b. 1947) played in the majors from 1972 to 1990 for the Phillies, Angels and Royals.  He had 1,838 hits, 105 home runs and a .254 batting average.  He was a 4-time All Star (1976, 1978, 1979 and 1983) and a 7-time Gold Glove Award winner (1978, 1979, 1982, 1986 through 1989).  He won the World Series with the Phillies in 1980.

He managed the Royals from 1995 to 1997 and the Reds from 2001 to 2003.  His career managerial record was 371-444 (.455%).

I mailed to Boone on February 20 at Nationals Spring Training and got the card back on December 15, for a 308-day TAT.
