# 51 - Howard Johnson - Team Gift Set

I got a little help from a friend on SportsGraphing.com to get this Howard Johnson card signed. It's from the 2008 Topps Mets 55 card Team Gift Set. After being the Mets hitting coach from 2007-2010, Howard is now a coach for the Mariners Triple A team in Tacoma.

Of course HoJo is best known for his hotel chain which can be found across America. Okay maybe not but I remember one of the first times I went to Chicago on vacation in the early 90s. I saw a Howard Johnson's hotel I thought it was named after him. Give me a break I was ten and he was an All-Star. It seemed possible.
