Doug Harvey: 42 days

sent LOR and my HOF postcard, and asked him in my note how many times he ejected Bobby Cox. he replied "never." used different colored pens to sign my card and write on the letter, so i'm thinking he didn't sign them at the same time, which might mean he actually looked up the answer...

Nice returns. I am sure you have seen or even know about the dry eraser trick but just in case you haven't, you can dry erase the surface of the glossy cards and ink will stick to them perfect without bubbling. Love that yarborough I got a few from him in the past.

Yeah I have heard, but forgot to do it *facepalm*

I heard a magic eraser (ie- mr. clean) works well too, as long as you only use it dry, not wet. Any thoughts on this method?

Starting up a new custom IC set for famous baseball nicknames. seems to be several pretty good TTM signers out there that had some interesting nicknames. I think it will be a fun set to try to build. working on guys that sign for free and have high percentages of successes first to see how many I get, then maybe moving up to some guys that are charging or are hit-or-miss types. any body i forget, lemme know.

first batch, going out 5/5:

John "Mule" Miles
Virgil "Fire" Trucks

Al "Mad Hungarian" Hrabosky
Allen "Bud" Selig
Bob "Hawk" Taylor
Elroy "The Baron" Face


great successes so far. got all 6 back. posting pics below.

Thanks. Now I gotta find a way to get bumgarner to sign his from the same set, and Ryan Zimmerman to sign the one from the previous year, and I'll have the main current stars from NC signed...
