Former Chicago Cubs manager, Don Zimmer, returned all 4 cards I sent to him in just 7 days!! And all 4 were signed too…
This was the third time I tried to get Zimmer’s autograph in the last 16 months. The first attempt is still somewhere in the mail stream somewhere. The second try is sitting in someone’s office in the Tampa Bay Rays organization, and now this 3rd attempt is home safe with me. And I am thrilled!!!
Zimmer was the manager of the Cubs when I moved to Chicago back in ’89. That team went on to win the pennant that year and it was fun to watch Zim celebrate his team’s success. I have very fond memories of that squad, and they are one of my favorite rosters of all-time.
Thank you Coach Zimmer. You have made this Cubs fan very proud!!!
