TTM Successes - Tom Bruno and George Frazier

I have to report one TTM success to lead into the one I got today.  I received the above card signed by Terry Kennedy on April 4, then sent it out to Tom Bruno in order to try to get his signature, and got his signature back on May 5.  Since I mailed it off on April 21, I got the card back in 14 days.
Bruno also included this nice note, thanking me for being a baseball fan.  Bruno (b. 1953) played in the majors from 1976 to 1979 for the Royals, Blue Jays and Cardinals.  He had a record of 7-7 with an ERA of 4.22 and 80 strike outs.
The success from Bruno led me to send the 1979 RC off to George Frazier on May 21 to see if I could complete the card.  I got the card (and the others shown) back today (6/30) for a 40-day TAT.  Frazier also signed the above 1982 and 1985 Topps and the 1987 shown below.
Frazier sent back one of my cards unsigned, a 1983 Topps, but I am really happy with the results of the TTM success.

Frazier (b. 1954) played in the majors from 1978 to 1987 for the Cardinals, Yankees, Indians, Cubs and Twins.  He had a record of 35-43 with an ERA of 4.20 and 449 strike outs.  He won the World Series in 1987 with the Twins.
