I also decided to try a few Spring Training requests this year. Spring Training seems to be a time when current players are more likely to sign than the regular season. Some collectors send out hundreds of requests to various spring training teams but I've decided just to stick with the Twins.
I didn't attend TwinsFest this year, so I've just sent some Allen & Ginter and Topps Heritage cards that I would normally try to get signed during that event.
I sent out an even dozen over the last week or so. I didn't bother sending to players that haven't had any successes reported on SCN over the last year or two, so I hope my success rate will be decent. I'll be happy to get 8 of the 12 back, but that might be optimistic.
