Bill Pleis - 1963 Topps

Yesterday I received a return from former-Twin Bill Pleis, who signed his 1963 Topps for me.

If things slow down a bit for me, I'll stock up on some more cards to send out.  I haven't been sending many lately.

Some Returns After a Long Dry Spell

It seems like my returns are coming back very slowly lately.  I've sent out a few here and there but they just aren't coming back.

Today, I was surprised to get two returns that had been out a while.

First, Billy O'Dell signed his 1963 and 1964 Topps that I sent to him last October.

I didn't send out many Spring Training requests this year.  Just four.  And one of those never made it because the request I sent to Matt Capps with the Braves was returned twice due a a bad address.

But I did get one back today.  Michael Cuddyer signed his 2011 Allen & Ginter that I sent back in early March.  Cuddy is on the disabled list with the Mets so I guess he had some time to get to his fan mail.  Thanks Michael!

Bud Daley - Pitching Leader

Today I received my fourth autograph on my 1961 Topps Pitching American League Pitching Leaders card.  The card is already signed by Milt Pappas, Art Ditmar and Chuck Estrada.

I think I'll send it off to Frank Lary next.  He can be slow to respond sometimes, but is still very dependable.  But I might not see this card again for a while.

1960's Twins Matchbook Covers

I've made a couple Ebay purchases lately.  I like buying oddball stuff from the 1960's, and these matchbook covers fit right in.

Each has a player's picture on the cover, and inside there are just a couple of stats, including position, height/weight and handedness.

Jim McAndrew and Ruben Amaro

I thought I'd get back more then I did this week, but today I received two returns.

Jim McAndrews signed his 1972 Topps as well as a Ron Lewis 1969 Mets postcard.

Ruben Amaro signed his 1963 and 1964 Topps.  This is the 25th 1963 Topps I've gotten signed this year, reaching the halfway point of my goal for the year.

Gene Conley and Dom Zanni

I received two more returns today.  I've gotten to the point that many of the 1963 Topps I still need are from players who charge, so I enclosed $5 in these requests.

Both Gene Conley and Dom Zanni signed their 1963 Topps in about two weeks.
