Six Returns Today

Last week I sent out a bunch of requests to try to fill some holes in my 1976 Topps set.  I bought the complete, unsigned set a few years ago to have some cards to send along as I worked on my 1971, 1972 and 1978 Topps sets.

I've been slowing down on those sets as it gets harder to find signers, especially those that don't charge.  So, I decided to send off some cards from the 1976 set, and also start including some team cards when I have them.

Five of the six successes I received today included a 1976 Topps.

Jim Barr signed his 1976, 1977, 1979 and 1983 Topps.

John D'Acquisto signed his 1976 Topps, the 1976 Topps Giants team card, and his 1977 and 1979 Topps cards.

Dave Duncan signed his 1971, 1972 and 1976 Topps.  I already had him sign the 71 and 72 in a request I sent about 11 years ago, but I had extras so I sent them along.  Mr. Duncan wrote "Send Self-Sealing Envelopes" on the back of my sase.  I have purposely avoided using self-sealing envelopes because I have read from some other members on that often, players don't realize there's paper that has to be peeled off before it can be sealed, and they end up receiving their sase unsealed, sometimes with cards missing.

Jim Lonborg signed his 1972, 1976, 1976 Phillies team and 1979 Topps for me.

Jack McKeon signed his 1973 Manager card, and 1975 and 1978 Topps team cards.

Finally, Joe McIntosh signed his 1976 Topps and 1976 Topps Padres team card.

I also sent out about 10 requests late last week that required fees/donations.  I hope those will starting arriving by the end of the week.
