TTM Success - Billy Burns

This TTM success got a couple more recent cards into my autograph album when this 2016 Topps and the below 2014 Bowman of Billy Burns came back signed.  2016 Topps is a really nice set.  Topps tried some tricks with their photography that make the cards look different from other Topps sets from around that time. 
I always liked 2014 Bowman because that was the first Bowman set of recent that I really got into. There were a ton of parallels, and I had a run of something like 30 Chris Davis parallels.  It was crazy. A pot of the 14 Bowman base cards have been sitting in a box now, since a lot of those players have moved up to MLB or out of baseball.  Getting one signed is always good.

Burns (b. 1989) played in the majors from 2014 to 2017 for the A's and Royals.  He had 228 hits, 5 home runs and a .270 batting average. He finished 5th in the 2015 AL Rookie of the Year voting. 

I mailed to Burns on October 7 and got the cards back on October 28, for a 21-day TAT.
