TTM Success - Dave Duncan

I got a TTM success on April 2 from former Oriole, Dave Duncan.  He is more well known as coach for many Tony LaRussa-led teams.  There has been talk about adding coaches to the Hall of Fame, and Duncan is one that is always pointed toward when the conversation is being held.
Duncan (b. 1945) played in the majors from 1964 and 1967 to 1976 for the A's, Indians and Orioles.  He had 617 hits, 109 home runs and a career average of .214.  He won the World Series with the A's in 1972.  Duncan coached from 1979 to 2011 for the Indians, Mariners, White Sox, A's and Cardinals.  He coached four pitchers to the Cy Young Award in 1983, 1990, 1992 and 2005.  He was a member of World Series winners in 1989 (A's), 2006 (Cardinals) and 2011 (Cardinals).

I mailed to Duncan on March 21 and got the cards back on April 2 for a 12-day TAT.  Both of these cards came from my good friend, Max.
