TTM Success - Jack McKeon
I have now added a few of these team cards with manager's signatures to my project. They're a good way to get some managers who otherwise wouldn't have any cards, or they have cards in older sets that carry more of a premium.
I bought an assortment of 1970s cards from the Columbia antique shop and was able to use some of them in my TTM requests. I bought them in bulk, so I got a great deal!
McKeon (b. 1930) managed from 1973 to 1975 with the Royals, twice for the A's between 1977 and 1978, for the Padres from 1988 to 1990, for the Reds from 1997 to 2000 and the Marlins from 2003 to 2005 and part of 2011. He is best known for guiding the Marlins to the World Series Championship over the Yankees in 2003.
He had a career record of 1,051-990 for a winning percentage of .515. I mailed to him on April 20 and got the cards back on April 30 for a 10-day TAT.
