A TTM Return and a Private Signing Return

Yesterday I had two returns in the mail.

I received a 1972 Topps signed by Carlos May from an Under the Radar Sports private signing.

I also received a TTM 1963 Topps signed by Whitey Herzog who signed for his $10 fee.

I'm about to give up on the other three requests I have out to the Twins spring training, but maybe I"ll be surprised later in the season.  I'm anxious for the season to start, even though I have little hope that the Twins will have a decent season.

Brooks Robinson Return

I noticed on that Brooks Robinson was signing from his home address for a small fee so I joined the crowd and sent him a 2000 Fleer Greats of the Game.  He signed it, added his HOF inscription and returned it in just 9 days for a $10 cash gift.

I've added a few cards to this set this the last couple of months and hope to add a few more, even though they weren't part of my goals for the year.

Speaking of which, I'm not doing great on my goals, but I'll update them this weekend.

Bill Mazeroski - Mail In Signing Return

I sent in a couple cards to Tom Orr at Atommic Sports for a Bill Mazeroski signing and received them back today.

I had him sign a 1961 Topps and a 2000 Fleer Greats of the Game.

I sent out just a few requests in the last couple of weeks but hopefully those come back next week sometime.

50% Success Rate With Spring Training Requests

Okay, it's just three returns from my six requests, but I'm still happy to have gotten this far.

Mason Melotakis signed his 2014 Topps Heritage Minors card.

Pitchers Beware!

I received a return from Al Kaline today, who finished off the 1959 Topps Pitchers Beware card that Charlie Maxwell previously signed.

I love these vintage multi-signed cards!

Another Spring Training Return - Hector Santiago

I received my second spring training return today.  Hector Santiago signed his 2014 and 2015 Topps Heritage.

That makes two of the six requests I sent to Twins' spring training.

Duffy Dyer

Yesterday I received a return from Duffy Dyer that I sent last November.

He was kind enough to sign his 1976 and 1979 Topps, as well as a 1969 Mets Ron Lewis postcard.

I really like these postcards.  I think this is #14 from the set that I have signed.

Another Greats of the Game - Andre Dawson

I decided to start working on the 2000 Fleer Greats of the Game set again and recently sent a card to Andre Dawson, along with a $10 check made out to his Foundation.

He signed and returned it very quickly.

I think I have 39 signed cards of the 107 card set.  Many are impossible as the set contains players that were deceased prior to its release, but I still have many that I can get.  I'd guess about 10 of the set are impossible.  Of course, many will be very expensive to get, so I'm not sure how far I'll go with the set.  I have a couple out to private signings that should come back later this month or in early April.
