TTM Success: Alan Knicely
After one failed attempt to an old P.O. Box, I received three autographed cards from former Reds catcher Alan Knicely, including my eleventh 1984 Topps Reds autographed card…
It only took ten days for Mr. Knicely to sign and return these 1983 Topps Traded, 1984 Topps, and 1985 Topps Traded cards to me.
The Reds went through several catchers after Johnny Bench‘s departure, but it wasn’t until the late Bo Diaz came over from Philadelphia that they had some stability at the position. Diaz was named an All-Star in 1987, his third season with the Reds. Incidentally, Knicely was part of the trade that brought Diaz to the Queen City.
