TTM Success - Manny Trillo

Here are some more 80s cards in this TTM success from Manny Trillo.  Trillo has a great signature and it really shows up well on the above 1988 Topps.
I knocked out two cards from 1986 (base and traded), a 1987 and 1985.  They all look great with Trillo's signature on them.

Trillo (b. 1950) played in the majors from 1973 to 1989 for the A's, Cubs, Phillies, Indians, Expos, Giants and Reds.  He had 1,562 hits, 61 home runs and a .263 batting average.  He was an All Star 4 times (1977, 1981, 1982, 1983) and won the Gold Glove Award 3 times (1979, 1981 and 1982).  He also won the Silver Slugger Award in 1980 and 1981.

Trillo was the 1980 NLCS MVP and helped the Phillies win the 1980 World Series.

I mailed to Trillo on February 6 and got the cards back on October 20, for a 256-day TAT.
