I was REALLY surprised and excited to see a return envelope in the mailbox today that had a 37 cent stamp on it. The address on my return envelope was handwritten, which I haven't done for a long time except on very rare occasions when I think that a handwritten note and envelopes might sway a tough signer to sign (I don't think it ever does).
I opened it up and was really disappointed to find my 2003 Topps Heritage Kenny Rogers card unsigned. I shouldn't be surprised. His signing percentage on SCN is 0%. Not a single successful return. But, I wonder why he returned it?
I sent this to him in care of the Twins when he played for them in 2003. I was working on the 2003 Heritage set. It would have been cool to get back a successful return after so long, but for some reason, it still seems kind of cool to get it back after this long even though it isn't signed,
I started my TTM collection that summer. This was my 46th request. To date, I have sent 2,880 requests.
After playing for the Twins, he went back and played for the Rangers, then Detroit. He hasn't played in the majors since 2008.
