TTM Success - Jeff Newman

As I continue to fall behind in posts, due to the graphing season, and now being sick, I am going to try to get some posts done and scheduled before I give out and have to go to bed.

This TTM success from Jeff Newman was prety cool in that I liked the catchers gear shown on the 1978 Topps above.  The old chect protector just looks cool on that card for some reason.
Newman looks a little like a younger version of my Uncle Joe in the top left 1979 Topps.  Another two catchers gear cards highlight the success with the 1980 and 1985 Topps.

Newman (b. 1948) played in the majors from 1976 to 1984 for the A's and Red Sox.  He had 475 hits, 63 home runs and a .224 batting average.  He was an All Star in 1979.  He managed the A's for 10 games in 1986, to a record of 2-10.

I mailed to Newman on March 3 and got the cards back on March 15, for a 12-day TAT.
