TTM Success - Dallas Green

I received a TTM success on September 9 from former player and manager, Dallas Green.  THe cards had been out for a long time, and I finally got them back.

This 1963 Topps was a pretty cool card to get back, even though it was a bit beat up.  I didn't have many of them to get signed, so adding this to the Topps Autograph Project was a plus.  I only had one other signed 1963 Topps.
Here is a nice signed team card from 1980 Topps.  Getting these signed by managers is pretty cool, I think.

Green (b. 1934) played in the majors from 1960 to 1967 for the Phillies, Senators and Mets.  He had a career record of 20-22 with an ERA of 4.26 and 268 strike outs.  Green would go on to manage the Phillies from 1979 to 1981, the Yankees in 1989 and the Mets from 1993 to 1996.  His career record as a manager is 169-130 with one World Series Championship (Philles - 1980).

I mailed to Green on March 12 and got the cards back on September 9, for a 181-day TAT.
