Tom Brunansky

Sent: 4/18/12
Received: 4/30/12
Time: 12 Days
Address: c/o Rochester Red Wings
Item Sent: 1982 TCMA Spokane Indians, 1982 Topps Traded, 1985 Fleer
Item Received: 1982 TCMA Spokane Indians, 1982 Topps Traded, 1985 Fleer.  All signed in blue Sharpie.

The cards for this request were chosen with a purpose.  Tom Brunansky, one of my true childhood heroes, is as automatic as it gets when it comes to signing through the mail, but I was still reluctant to send his minor league card the first time I wrote to him.  I was also kicking myself for not sending his 1982 Topps Traded rookie card.  With my decision to start collecting the 1985 Fleer set, I thought it would be nice to send those three cards together and knock out three major pieces in my Bruno collection.  Success!

  1. Hi, I find your blog extremely interesting as I am embarking on a similar project, however it is just covering Twins players past and present. I am having some difficulty acquiring addresses of a few players and am wondering if you might be able to help me out. I see that you were able to have success TTM with Gary Wayne, but I cannot find his address anywhere. Would you be able to share? Also, any luck with Pedro Munoz? I can't find him anywhere either. You can reply to my email if you would like: Thank you!
