TTM Success - Craig Counsell

This 1998 Topps Finest that I got signed TTM by Brewers manager, Craig Counsell, turned out great.  The card was in one of the boxes I got from my former LCS, and was one of those that used to have the protective film on it.  The card looks sharp, and I am glad that I was finally able to get it back signed by Counsell.
I had sent the TTM request to Brewers Spring Training and finally got the cards back, almost a year later.  This 2006 Topps was the second of the two cards that I sent.

Counsell (b. 1970) played in the majors in 1995 and from 1997 to 2011 for the Rockies, Marlins, Dodgers, Diamondbacks and Brewers.  He had 1,208 hits, 42 home runs and a .255 batting average.  He won the World Series in 1997 with the Marlins and 2001 with the Diamondbacks.  He was the NLCS MVP in 2001.

Counsell has managed the Brewers since 2015, reaching the postseason in four of those seasons.  His overall managerial record is 529-479 (.525 win %).

I mailed to Counsell on February 9 and got the cards back on December 14, for a 308-day TAT.
