My TTM Autographs: Tom Brunansky

So right after high school ..2009ish.. I started to send out autograph requests through the mail. I was pretty successful in getting almost everything I sent out back. A few autograph requests that I sent out that I can remember not getting back was: Tom Pagnozzi, Tommy Lasorda, and Tim Lincecum, but other than those I'm pretty sure I got everything else back signed.

When I started out I randomly sent out items with no direction, for an example I sent a baseball to Bob Feller who did sign it, but with his ten dollar fee, nonetheless I was happy to pay the fee for a Hall of Fame autograph. After a while, I turned my focus to Cardinals players by sending out some extra cards I had to get signed, they mostly early 90's Donruss and Topps cards. After I got a few back I noticed that I was starting to put some sets together..nowhere close to complete but a quite a few from a couple of sets. 90 Topps, 90 Upperdeck and 01 Topps.

One of the players that I received a few cards back from was Tom Brunansky. I sent a couple of cards to him and I wrote that he could keep a few for himself, he signed them all instead and returned them to me.

Brunansky was an Allstar in '85. but in  1988 he was traded for Cardinals Tom Herr.

Tom spent 3 Years with the Cardinals 1988,1989, and 1990, eventually he was traded for Lee Smith.

here are some of his stats while with the Cardinals

I really like his signature, its almost readable and looks nice on a card.
