TTM Success - Bob Horner

I thought I had sent to Bob Horner before, but after digging into my blog, and my albums, it appears that I was mistaken.  No worries, though, as I did send to him, and received this TTM success.  I had to get him on a 1987 Topps, of course, which looks really nice.
I also decided to add this 1983 Fleer.  I don't have many of these at all, so I figured I would go ahead and put this in the TTM request.  1983 Fleer is a pretty basic design, but a pretty decent card.  Sometimes the simplicity is good.

Horner (b. 1957) played in the majors from 1978 to 1986 and 1988 for the Braves and Cardinals.  He had 1,047 hits, 218 home runs and a .277 batting average.  He was the 1978 NL Rookie of the Year and an All Star in 1982.  He finished in the MVP voting 3 times; his best finish being 9th in 1980.

I mailed to Horner on February 24 and got the cards back on March 5, for a 9-day TAT.
