TTM Success - Mike Cubbage

I was able to add some nice older cards to my autograph album with this TTM success from Mike Cubbage.  I really liked this 1981 Topps, mainly due to the coloring on the card, but also at the face Cubbage is making in his photo.
The 1978 and 1980 that I sent came out of a box that I got from the Columbia antique shop.  Both cards were really nice; I'm digging that old school Twins helmet.
Finally, here is a 1982 Topps with Cubbage as a Met.  All of the cards turned out really nice.

Cubbage (b. 1950) played in the majors from 1974 to 1981 for the Rangers, Twins and Mets.  He had 503 hits, 34 home runs and a .258 batting average.

He also managed the Mets for 7 games in 1991, leading them to a 3-4 record (.429%).

I mailed to Cubbage on September 11 and got the cards back on September 23, for a 12-day TAT.
