Chuck Scrivener Return

I probably received my last return of 2016 today.  Odds are very slim that I'll get one tomorrow.

Chuck Scrivener signed his 1978 Topps that I sent to him very early in January of 2016.  Probably my first request, and my last return of the year.

I came up short on most of my goals for the year.  I'll update the details over the weekend.

1958 Topps Carlton Willey for Christmas

It's been really slow lately as I haven't sent out any requests.  I am starting to gear up a bit for TwinsFest next month.  I'll be going a couple days with my nephew this year.  So far the lineup looks okay.  Matt Lawton is a player I've never met who is scheduled to be there, as is Eric Milton.  I like when they bring in some of the players from 10-20 years ago.  I hope they'll add more.

Today I received another card for my 1958 Topps set from my sister as a Christmas gift: Carlton Willey.

Eddie Robinson - 1952 Topps

I received a great return from Eddie Robinson today, who signed his 1952 Topps in just over a month.

Mr. Robinson was on the 1948 Cleveland Indians team that won the World Series.  He was on TV at game 6 this year hoping the Indians would finally win another.  Too bad he wasn't able to witness them win it this year.

Pat Corrales and Wayne Garrett Returns

Since I don't have many requests out, I was surprised to see two returns in my mailbox today.

One was a recent request.  Wayne Garrett signed his 1976, 1979 and Ron Lewis 1968 Mets postcard for me.


The other request has been out for a little over a year.  I was happy to see Pat Corrales signed his 1971, 1972, 1973 and 1985 Topps for my collection.  I really like getting cards back from players who also have manager cards.


Mr. Corrales' return also completes my goal of adding 10 signed 1972 Topps to my collection this year.
