30 Day Challenge: Day 18

Day 18: A Card Of A Player Who Would Later Manage Your Favorite Team

1985 Topps #578 Terry Francona

I got to meet Terry Francona once. The University of Virginia Baseball Team had a fundraising dinner, with Tito as the guest speaker. My wife got us tickets as my Christmas Gift, and I got to spend an evening listening to him share tales of what it was like managing the Red Sox. Afterwards I went up to him and got a couple autographs, as well as my picture with him. He's arguably the greatest manager in Red Sox history, and a Future Hall Of Famer in my opinion.
