TTM Success - Davey Johnson

I added a really great TTM success to my collection with this return from Davey Johnson.  I was really glad that I got the above Japanese card signed, since I had gotten it from my friend, Ryan.
I also got these cards signed.  Of course, I had to get the 1987 Topps signed for the set, and I figured I would get the Mets leaders card signed.

Johnson (b. 1943) played in the majors from 1965 to 1975 and 1977 to 1978 for the Orioles, Braves, Phillies and Cubs.  He had 1,252 hits, 136 home runs and a .261 batting average.  He was a three-time Gold Glove Award winner (1969, 1970 and 1971) and was a four-time All Star (1968, 1969, 1970 and 1973).  His best MVP finish was 13th in 1973 (NL).  He won the World Series in 1966 and 1970.

Johnson managed in the majors from 1984 to 1990 (Mets), 1993 to 1995 (Reds), 1996-1997 (Orioles), 1999-2000 (Dodgers) and 2011 to 2013 (Nationals).  His career managerial record is 1,372-1,071 (.562 win %).  He won the World Series with the Mets in 1986.

I mailed to Johnson on March 19 and got the cards back on April 7, for a 19-day TAT.  I paid a fee of $5/card.
