Mazzilli (b. 1955) played in the majors from 1976 to 1989 for the Mets, Rangers, Yankees, Pirates and Blue Jays. He had 1,068 hits, 93 home runs and a .259 batting average. He was an All Star in 1979. He won the World Series with the Mets in 1986.
Mazzilli managed the Orioles from 2004 to 2005 to a record of 129-140 (.480 win %). The Orioles started out strong during the 2005 season, spending the beginning months of the season in first place. The wheels fell off in a big way, and by the time Rafael Palmeiro was serving his suspension for a failed steroid test, Mazzilli was on his way out as manager. I still feel like he got a raw deal and should have been given a longer leash, but that is life as an Oriole fan.
I mailed to the signing on September 18 and got the card back on October 25, for a 37-day TAT. I paid a fee of $20.00.
