TTM Success - Bob Melvin

Another card for my 1987 set was taken care of with this success from A's manager, Bob Melvin.  The card turned out pretty well.
I also added a 1992 and a 2005 Topps.  I have hardly any 2005 Topps available to send TTM, so it was nice to add one to the album.

Melvin (b. 1961) played in the majors from 1985 to 1994 for the Tigers, Giants, Orioles, Royals, Red Sox, Yankees and White Sox.  He had 456 hits, 35 home runs and a .233 batting average.

He had managed the Mariners (2003 and 2004), Diamondbacks (2005 to 2009) and A's (2011 to 2018).  His career record is 1,061-1,073 (.497 win %).  He was the 2007 NL Manager of the Year and 2012 AL Manager of the Year.

I mailed to Melvin on February 9 via spring training and got the cards back on March 30, for a 49-day TAT.
