TTM Success - Walt Weiss

This 1991 Topps was a card that I really wanted to add to my autograph album, and I finally was able to when I saw that there was a private signing for Walt Weiss on SCN.

The 1991 Topps set has some of my favorite photography that Topps has ever offered.  The set is still very underrated, and can be had very cheaply, even with the Chipper Jones RC in there.

Weiss (b. 1963) played in the majors from 1987 to 2000 for the A's, Marlins, Rockies and Braves.  He had 1,207 hits, 25 home runs and a .258 batting average.  He was the 1988 AL Rookie of the Year.  He won the 1989 World Series with the A's.

Weiss managed the Rockies from 2013 to 2016 and compiled a 283-365 record (.437%).

I mailed to the private signing on September 18 and got the card back on October 1, for a 13-day TAT.  I paid a fee of $20.00.
