TTM Success - Gene Lamont

I waited a while for these to come back, but I was glad to get a TTM success from Gene Lamont.  I have been able to get Lerrin LaGrow in the past, so I will probably send this 1971 Topps out to him.
The 1975 and 2001 Topps cards turned out well, also.

Lamont (b. 1946) played in the majors from 1970 to 1972 and 1974 to 1975 for the Tigers.  He had 37 hits, 4 home runs and a .233 batting average.

He the White Sox from 1992 to 1995 and the Pirates from 1997 to 2000.  His overall managerial record was 553-562 (.496%)/  He was the 1993 AL Manager of the Year.

I mailed to Lamont on May 9 and got the cards back on November 17, for an 182-day TAT.

Got to meet Lamont when I lived in Jacksonville.
He was on a local radio show at the time.
Good guy.
