TTM Success - Jim Marshall

Jim Marshall was another player that I found by taking a look at my 1991 Crown Orioles set.  I like using those cards as a jumping off point for folks to mail to, and they have helped me with some TTM subjects.  I pulled from a list that I made of about 10 players, and then hit COMC and Sportlots for a couple nice vintage cards for my album.  The above 1958 Topps really looks nice with Marshall's signature on it.
Marshall (b. 1931) played in the majors from 1958 to 1962 for the Orioles, Cubs, Giants, Mets and Pirates.  He had 206 hits, 29 home runs and a .242 batting average.

He managed the Cubs from 1974 to 1976 and the A's in 1979.  He had a 229-326 record (.413 win %) and finished no higher than 4th place in the standings.

I mailed to Marshall on May 12 and got the cards back on May 22, for a 10-day TAT.
