After a week-and-a-half drought (which included getting my unsigned Nick Castellanos card back because they waited until almost a month into the season to announce he was taking part in the Tigers Foundation's "Autographs for a Cause" program), I finally found something good in the mailbox on Wednesday...

5/21/14
-Cesar Hernandez, 2/2 cards ('12 THM, '13 THM), c/o Philadelphia Phillies, 44 days

With my Heritage Minors signed sets, I'm now up to:
2011: 73/200
2012: 61/200
2013: 56/200

Sweet return! I hadn't seen that Cesar signed, but I'll send to him now!

Thanks, I had gotten a return letter for Nathan. Didn't know there was a website for it.

Some nice random returns trickled in last week...

6/16/14
-Brett Bochy, 1/1 card ('13 THM), c/o Fresno Grizzlies, 70 days

-Kittie (Morgan Lander, Mercedes Lander, Trish Doan, Tara McLeod), autographed poster (approx. 17x11)...I made a $10 donation in April to their Indiegogo campaign to raise money to produce a documentary movie and book in time for their 20th anniversary in 2016, and they had a bunch of available "perks" for different price levels, and I thought $10 was well-worth getting a signed poster of one of my favorite bands!

6/17/14
-Jed Bradley, 2/2 cards ('12 THM, '13 THM), c/o Huntsville Stars, 71 days

6/20/14
-Adam Morgan, 2/2 cards ('12 THM, '13 THM), c/o Lehigh Valley IronPigs, 74 days...was postmarked from Florida, so since he's been on the DL for most of the season, he might be rehabbing there

-Michael Fulmer, 1/1 ('13 THM), c/o St. Lucie Mets, 78 days

My progress on the Heritage Minors sets (again, not trying for SPs or inserts)...if anyone wants to trade, I have a few dupes from 2012-2013...I'm also open to buying...

2011: 76/200 (plus 3 SPs)
2012: 66/200 (no SPs)
2013: 68/200 (1 SP, 1 Road to the Show)

Been kinda slacking with my results, but in July I've gotten back Patrick Leonard (91 days), Jorge Bonifacio (102 days), Kyle Waldrop (14 days), and Luis Mateo (20 days), all on 2013 Heritage Minors, c/o team.

So apparently, I haven't updated since July...a few have trickled in since then...been busy doing in-person stuff. I'm just starting to send out some off-season requests to retired players, so hopefully those will start to come back soon.

August:
-Taylor Guerrieri, 1/1 card ('13 THM), c/o team, about a month
-Kyle Lotzkar, 1/1 card ('13 THM), c/o team, about 4 months
-Danica Patrick, 1/1 card (racing signature card), c/o address on website, 13 months

September:
-Bryan Brickhouse, 1/1 card ('13 THM), c/o Idaho Falls, 69 days
-Sean Gilmartin, 1/1 card ('13 THM), c/o New Britain, 155 days

Up to 88/200 for the 2013 Heritage Minors set. Still looking for ones that I don't have from all 3 years, 2011-2013.

Nice job on the Guerrieri, I was worried and didn't know where to send exactly since he was on the DL and then came back and never pitched again. Great job!!!

Got your PM, when I get home, I'll compile my list of extras and go from there

No prob, bud. Yeah I got lucky with the Guerrieri. I noticed in April, before I sent out my huge early-season batch, that some of these guys had off-season surgery, so I couldn't really write to them at the time. I happened to check in early July, and saw that TG was listed as being on the active roster of the GCL Rays, so I wrote to him there (same with Luis Mateo and the GCL Mets).

Wednesday was 'Giusti'-nother day at the mailbox ...

9/24/14
-Dave Giusti, 2/2 cards (69 Topps, Pittsburgh signature card), 9 days

Born in Seneca Falls, NY, Giusti (pronounced JUST-eee) grew up in my hometown, Syracuse, and attended SU when they actually had a baseball team. The 1969 Topps card he signed for me, interestingly, shows him listed with the Padres, who he never actually played for in the majors (drafted by SD in the 1968 expansion draft, but then was traded to St. Louis before the 1969 season). I once read an article that said most of the shots used for the 1969 set were taken anywhere from 1965 to 1968, which is why there are a lot of guys without hats, or with airbrushed hats, since many were on different teams in 1969 than they were when the photos were taken. Heck, the Giusti picture is probably an old Houston picture.

9/25/14
-Reggie Cleveland, 2/2 cards ('72 Topps, '81 Donruss; with $1 per card fee), 16 days
-Tom Trebelhorn, 2/2 cards ('88 Topps, '89 Topps), 10 days

I really enjoy the September/October/November period. The weather turns to fall, the in-person season winds down, and the TTM season (for me, anyway) heats up....and the retired guys c/o home are usually really nice and accommodating!
