After serving as a backup catcher for the Twins in the 1970s, Phil Roof spent over two decades as a minor league coach, manager, and instructor in the Twins organization.  He was the manager of the 1989 Portland Beavers, but ProCards did not produce a card for him in the set.  I asked him to sign the team checklist card to add to my autographed team set.  He did so, inscribing it "Mgr."
