Tim Nordbrook, Dave Revering and Brooks Robinson

 I received three returns today.

Tim Nordbrook signed his 1976 and 1978 Topps.

Dave Revering signed his 1978, 1979 and 1980 Topps.  One of the other players on the 78 has passed away, and the other two aren't good signers, so I"m not sure I'll get any more on that one.

Finally, Brooks Robinson, who appeared to have quit signing ttm for a while, is signing again so I took the opportunity to add another 1971 Topps to my set.

I sent out enough requests over the weekend to exceed my goal of 200 requests for the year.  I'm at 204 so far.  I haven't sent out that many since 2011.  I'll try to keep going and exceed 250 if I can.

Skip Guinn Return

 I sent out 10 requests today.  I've been sending out a bunch lately so I should have some pretty consistent returns for a few weeks at least.

Today I received a return from Skip Guinn, who signed his 1971 Topps for me.
