TTM Success - AJ Hinch

I got a really cool TTM success from Astros manager, AJ Hinch.  I really wanted to get this Topps Now card done that I got at the end of the World Series.  It was a free card from Topps Now when I ordered a few cards from the World Series for my friend, Nick.
I also sent off this 1999 Topps, which turned out really nice.

Hinch (b. 1974) played in the majors from 1998 to 2004 for the A's, Royals, Tigers and Phillies.  He had 209 hits, 32 home runs and a .219 batting average.

He managed the Diamondbacks from 2009 to 2010 and the Astros from 2015 to 2018.  His career managerial record is 397-362 (.523 win %).  He won the World Series with the Astros in 2017.

I mailed to Hinch at Spring Training on February 10 and got the cards back on March 30, for a 48-day TAT.
