The tale of two Davids

DDavid Joseph Magadan is the cousin and Godson of future Hall of Fame Manager Lou Pinella.  Dave finished his playing career and began his coaching career with the Padres.  He played 1999-2001 with the Padres, playing shortstop and 2nd base for the only time in his career.  He retired after the 2001 season and was the Padres hitting coach from 2002-2006.  He has been the Red Sox hitting coach since 2007.  I believe I got this card signed through the mail.  David Lewis Marshall played 490 games in his 7 year career, only 39 of them were with the Padres.  He played 3 years with the Giants and 3 with the Mets before coming to San Diego for the 1973 season.  The lovely airbrushed 1973 Topps card was signed through the mail.
