1977 tom bruno

tom bruno was selected by the blue jays from the royals in the 1976 expansion draft. here's his 1977 o-pee-chee card
bruno was not included in the topps set, not even on one of the 4-player rookie cards, so there is no topps equivalent to display. so, here's the o-pee-chee back:
bruno had appeared in 12 games for the royals in 1976, all in relief. for the jays in 1977, he also appeared in 12 games, all as a reliever, losing his only decision. after the season, he was traded to the cardinals for rick bosetti. he had by far his best season for the redbirds in 1978, winning 4 games and saving 1 with an era of 1.99 in 18 games.

voici à vous, 1977 tom bruno!
