    Edit- Definitelt the 1999 Arizona Fall League. Very minimal information about the league that year, but COMC has some 1999 AFL prospect cards listed
    Thanks! Great spot on this.

    Was definitely interesting to pick up since Murray was not even on my list of HOF'ers who managed since he never managed in the Majors. Now up to 21 different HOF'ers. Also picked up a 2nd signed lineup card of a big HOF name, but will wait until it is in hand to share...

    Glad I could help! Not too bad for somebody who was only 6 years old when that lineup was rolled out lol.

    I like following your collection though. I only have one line up card myself, one of those that hangs in the dugout, so it isn't signed by the manager. The game wasnt important either and the Twins lost. But the date is important as I was able to snag the line up card from my wedding date

    I was just bummed the Twins lost that day! I kept checking the score during the reception But I did get lucky on grabbing it. I emailed the Twins authentics store last year a couple of weeks after the wedding to ask about the lineup card. I was told they would get back to me since Joe Vavra (the bench coach at the time) had been keeping a lot of them and giving stacks of them to the Twins every few weeks. Well, I never heard back. I was told the price would be $75-100 depending on the outcome of the game. At the time, I was willing to overpay at $75 just to have a small piece to tie the Twins to that day in my collection. I go to TwinsFest in January this year and they have a box of line up cards from the past season sitting there. So I start digging through, and sure enough, July 29, 2017 was there. And for $25.

    Thanks to @mchenrycards who saw a post on Net54 about this and let me know.

    Cornelius McGillicuddy managed the Philadelphia A's for 50 years. The longest serving manager of all-time, "Connie Mack" teams won 5 World Series, and he holds the record for most managerial wins, losses and games managed in major league history. Mack was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1937.

    With that many games managed, you'd think there would be a ton of lineup cards around, but they are not easy to come by. This one is from 1934, after the A's were no longer a powerhouse, but they did feature one of the great power hitters of all-time right in the middle of his prime: Jimmie Foxx.
