Wilbur Wood - Mail-In Signing Return

Today I received three cards I sent in to a signing with Wilbur Wood.  Mr. Wood is a good signer through the mail, but personalizes.  I don't normally mind my cards being personalized, but he apparently also  personalized multi-signed cards.  I had two cards I wanted signed by all three players so I opted to pay for his signature.

He signed the 1972 Topps cards of A.L ERA Leaders and A.L. Pitching Leaders from the 1971 season.  I hope to be able to get all three players to sign both of these cards.  I'll probably send them off to Vida Blue next.

I also had his 1978 Topps signed.

Mr. Wood has five cards from the 1972 set, including his individual card, his Boyhood Photo card, and an "In Action" card.  I know have all five of his cards signed from this set.

Joe Cunningham

Today I received a 1955 Topps signed by Joe Cunningham.  He returned it in about a month.

He also included a signed card of his own, although it smeared a bit.  I've sent to him before, and he's included these signed cards in the past.  It's always a nice surprise to get something extra!

I've purchased a small number of cards on Ebay that I'll be sending out as they arrive.  Hopefully I'll continue to post at least a couple of successes each month.

Bob Friend

I received a great return from Bob Friend today.  He signed his 1952 Bowman, 1952 Topps and 1961 Topps All Star for $15.

He was also kind enough to send along a signed 1991 Topps Archives card.

I already had the 52 Topps signed.  I sent it to him a few years ago and he signed it in black.  I thought I"d give a shot to upgrading it and hoping he'd sign in blue, which he did.

Jim Palmer and the Gum Stain

I was s little disappointed when I opened my return envelope from Jim Palmer.  The 2000 Fleer Greats of the Game looked great, but the 1978 Topps looked like it was signed with a fading pen.

But then I felt it and realized I sent a card with either a gum or wax stain on it.  The pen didn't like that.  My fault.  I'm not sure if I'll send another one or not.

Bobby Shantz - 1960 Topps

I may have every one of Bobby Shantz's cards signed.  Probably not, but a lot of them.  Today I added his 1960 Topps which he signed in just six days!

Rick Manning

I've slowed down on my requests, but I still have a few out, including some cards from the early 50's that I'm anxious to get back.

Today I received a few cards signed by Rick Manning, who signed his 1976, 1978, 1985 and 1987 Topps cards for me in about three weeks.
