TTM Success - Billy Beane

Although I got him TTM on a ball before, I wanted to send a card to A's executive, Billy Beane.  I figured I would add him on the 1987 Topps since I have so many of them signed already.  I have 39 of them in my albums so far.

Beane (b. 1962) played in the majors from 1984 to 1989 for the Mets, Twins, Tigers and A's.  He had 66 hits, 3 home runs and a .219 batting average.  He was the general manager of the A's from 1998 to 2015.  Following the 2015 season, Beane was promoted to Executive Vice President of Baseball Operations.

I mailed to Beane on January 26 and got the card back on February 3, for an 8-day TAT.
