Five Returns Today

I came home to a nice full mailbox today, including one previously TTM toughie.

Stan Williams signed his 1963 and 1964 Topps.

Norm Sherry signed his 1963 Topps.

A while ago I went through my signed cards and picked out the multi-player cards that I thought I could get more signatures on.  A couple of those came back today.

Pat Rogan signed his 1965 Topps already signed by Tom Egan.

And Bruce Howard signed his 1965 Topps already signed by Marv Staehle.

Finally, I received a 1961 and 1963 Topps back from Wynn Hawkins.  I saw a recent return on SCN with a clue as to the address and was able to get a couple cards back.  He also wrote a short note about a game I referred to in my letter and a couple other short topics.  A very nice return!

Ed Charles and Bob Skinner Returns

I had two returns yesterday.

Ed Charles signed his 1963 and 1964 Topps as well as a Ron Lewis 1969 Mets postcard.  I've had these postcards laying around a while and my son sent out quite a few several years ago.  I'm not sure why I haven't sent out more.

Bob Skinner signed his 1963 and 1964 Topps, as well as the 1963 Topps Buc Blasters card.  Even in this shape, I had to pay nearly $10 for this card because Clemente is on it.

 I also received several more unsigned cards on eBay and I hope to get a start on sending out more requests this week.

Five Returns Today

I was expecting to get back several returns today, and I did. 

I received five returns today, including Dal Maxvill, who signed his 1963 and 1964 Topps.

Joe Moeller also signed his 1963 and 1964 Topps.

Frank Bolling signed his 1963 Topps.

Hector Lopez signed his 1964 Topps.

Finally, Jeoff Long signed his 1964 Topps.

I expect to receive more tomorrow as well.  I also received a bunch of cards I bought on eBay so I have more requests to send out over the weekend.

One more return today.  A slow, steady trickle lately.

Stu Miller signed his 1963 and 1964 Topps.

Don Lee

Just one card in the mail for me today.

Former Twin Don Lee was kind enough to sign his 1964 Topps for me.  He also answered a question I had asked in my letter and then wrote "Thank you" on the return envelope.  How nice, but I'm the one who should be thanking him!

A Long Wait

I received three returns today.  Two of them were quite normal.

Rich Rollins signed his 1963 Topps for me in about two weeks.

Tim Harkness signed his 1963 and 1964 Topps for me, also in about two weeks despite the fact that he lives in Canada.

Also in the mail was a return from Joe Rudi, who signed and personalized his 1971, 1972 and 1978 Topps that I sent to him almost exact 4 years ago (10/18/2010).  I think this is my longest return so far.

Jimmie Schaffer and Another Killebrew Purchase

Jimmie Schaffer signed his 1963 and 1964 Topps for me.

I bought a 1956 Topps signed by Harmon Killebrew.  It's PSA/DNA authenticated (sticker on the back).

I'm enjoying my 1963 and 1964 Topps project, but might start looking at my other sets as well and starting trying to fill some holes there.
