2019 National Free Signer - Jim Lefebvre

I didn't go through his line, because I was waiting on Jim Perry, but I was able to get this Jim Lefebvre card signed by either Michael or his uncle.  They were kind enough to get my stuff done while I waited on Perry.  I was glad to get this 1971 Topps Buyback card done.  I won't count it toward my Topps total, since it has the Topps Stamp, but it was really cool to get it done.

Lefebvre (b. 1942) played in the majors from 1965 to 1972 for the Dodgers.  He had 756 hits, 74 home runs and a .251 batting average.  He was the 1965 NL Rookie of the Year and an All Star in 1966.  His best career finish in the NL MVP voting was 18th in 1966.  He won the World Series with the Dodgers in 1965.

Lefebvre managed the Mariners from 1989 to 1991; the Cubs from 1992 to 1993 and the Brewers for part of 1999.  His career managerial record is 233-253 (.485%).
