TTM Success - Pat Corrales

I added autographs of a former manager when these came in TTM from Pat Corrales.  I like seeing some of these old team cards get signed, so I picked it up from my LCS a few weeks ago.
I had these two cards in my bulk Topps boxes.  You can't go wrong with an 87 Topps auto (especially since I have around 27 of them now).  I also sent Corrales three cards of him as a player (1969, 1971 and 1974 Topps), but he didn't sign them.

Corrales (b. 1941) played in the majors from 1964 to 1966 and 1968 to 1973 for the Phillies, Cardinals, Reds and Padres.  He had 166 hits, 4 home runs and an average of .216.

As a manager, Corrales had a career record of 572-634.  He managed the Rangers (1978 to 1980), Phillies (1982-83) and Indians (1983 to 1987).

I mailed to Corrales on November 12 and got the cards back on December 1 for a 19-day TAT.
