#69T Jack McKeon

IMPACT FACTOR 3/10: McKeon took over the 1988 Padres midseason from Larry Bowa and turned them around, helping them to a winning season. He actually had been their GM for several years previously.

The card back format is interesting, given that Topps had to come up with something new for a "traded set" manager card. Looks like they were starving for ideas, given the factoid at the bottom of the card.
