TTM Success - Jimy Williams

Another 1987 Topps for my set is off of the list because of this TTM success from Jimy Williams.  His signature is really nice, and the card turned out really well.
I also had his 2001 Topps, which also looked really nice, except for where you can tell that the card was stuck to other cards.  Such is the problem with the late 90s to early 00s cards.  I'm glad Topps got away from the super gloss.

Williams (b. 1943) played in the majors in 1966 and 1967 for the Cardinals.  He had 3 hits, no home runs and a .231 batting average.

He managed the Blue Jays from 1986 to 1989; the Red Sox from 1997 to 2001 and the Astros from 2002 to 2004.  His career managerial record was 910-790 (.535%).  He was the Manager of the Year in 1999.

I mailed to Williams on January 9 and got the cards back on January 17, for an 8-day TAT.
