771st - Frank Lucchesi

"Lucchesi was here"
"So was Zim"
Card #564

We've got a manager card backfire.  Lucchesi was only the "interim" skipper when he finished out the 1987 season.  In 1988 the Cubs hired Don Zimmer to lead the club, meaning this manager card was practically useless. 

Don't feel too bad for Lucchesi, though.  He went on to have a great career in Hollywood.*  You probably remember him best as "Brooks" in The Shawshank Redemption.

*obviously I'm making all of this up.
