Tom Murphy

I received one return today. 

Tom Murphy signed his 1969, 1971 and 1979 Topps for me.

I'm one-tenth of my way to my 2020 goals for the 1971 and 1978 Topps sets, but have a long way to go.

Three Returns Today - Gomez, Sisk and Worthington

My mail arrived very late today.  8 PM, when it usually arrives at about 11:30 AM.  But, it was worth the wait.

Luis Gomez signed his 1978, 1979 and 1980 Topps.  I had mentioned in my letter to him that I regretted not having a card of him in a Twins uniform.  He enclosed a mock up someone did of a 1975 Topps mini that someone must have created for him.





Tommie Sisk signed his 1964, 1966, 1967 and 1970 Topps.





Finally, Al Worthington signed the 1957, 1958 and 1966 Topps that I sent him.  He also sent back a signed 1965 Topps and a couple signed religious pamphlets, as he often does.

Frank Tanana and Andre Thornton Returns

Finally, a two-return day!

Frank Tanana signed his 1978 Topps, 1978 Topps ERA Leaders and 1979 Topps.  He also included a signed religious pamphlet.






Andre Thornton signed his 1976, 1978, 1979 and 1985 Topps.  I was getting a little worried about this one since I sent it over a month ago and had seen much more recent requests getting returned on the SCN boards.  I'm happy to get this one back.

Dave Morehead TTM Return and a Purchase

Another day of just a single return.  It's snowing hard here now and the mail was several hours late.  Not a great day to be a mail carrier.

Dave Morehead signed his 1964 and 1971 Topps.



I also received a purchase from a fellow member on SCN.  It's the 1964 Topps card of the 1963 A.L. Strikeout Leaders already signed by Stigman and Bunning.  I already had another copy of this card signed by Stigman, but once Bunning passed away, I decided not to pursue it any further.  Even though I sent a request to Pascual recently, I don't think I"ll waste any time getting this one out to him to complete it.

Bill Voss Return

The returns are trickling in one by one.  I have a lot out and have expected some big days.

Today brought a return from Bill Voss, who signed his 1968, 1971 and 1972 Topps cards for me.





He took great care to return them.  He cut the bottom of my letter off to fold up around the cards, then put them in my sase, and sealed the envelope and even taped it as well.  I feel guilty when I get returns like this and hope it's not creating unwanted work for him!  I do appreciate it though.

Bob Robertson Return

I made a little progress on my goals for the year today with a return from Bob Robertson.  Mr. Robertson was kind enough to sign his 1971, 1972, 1972 IA and 1973 Topps.
