Default cwebb6685's TTM Thread

I first did TTM about 10-15 years ago when I was a kid. Of course, the first one I sent out was Ken Griffey Jr. I remember being excited checking the mailbox everyday for like a year after sending it out. Never did get anything back from him but I managed to get some pretty decent autos from other guys. Anyway, I decided I am spending too much money on cards so I am going to start doing TTM again. Here are some of the better returns I got when I was a kid:













Hopefully, I get some new ones to add to these!

Nice cards. I also got Dirk Nowitzki back, and I hope that I get Paul Molitor back.

Nice autographs. For me, Roy Face included 2 extra signed photos for free. He is a really nice guy.
