Chuck Tanner coached the 1979 championship team. The auto is from 2004 Sweet Spot. Coach Tanner passed away in 2011.
Jim Leyland coached the successful early 90's Pirate teams. The above auto is from 2005 Topps Retired. Coach Leyland announced his retirement at the end of last season.
I was trying to think if any new sets have manager signatures in it. I know Topps had a few random GMs in it. Pirates GM Neil Huntington was included in that set. It would be kind of cool to see some active manager auto's make there way into some sets.
