Here were today's sendouts, somewhere around 60 (first time I've sent out in over 3 weeks):



-------------

On to the mail!! 4 more returns today, I'm surprised because I haven't sent out in 3 weeks. All 4 are active MLB players and 3 are Rangers!!

Gordon Beckham 1/1 c/o White Sox in 27 days



Mike Adams 1/3 c/o Rangers in 27 days



Mike Napoli 1/2 c/o Rangers in 27 days



Joe Nathan 1/1 c/o Rangers in 40 days (my second success from him)

Just FYI I think the beckham is ghost. I think I remember some guys got them back unable to verify.
Don't know you be the judge.

I was unsure at first but now I feel confident that it is real. Looking through all of his certified autos, they aren't very uniform (each one is a little different) and I think mine is reasonably within that range. He isn't the most famous player either so I would be surprised if he had a secretary sign for him.

Got another success today!!

AJ Pierzynski 1/1 c/o White Sox in 31 days

Nice success from the White Sox catcher, always nice to get a former Giant on a Giants card. I feel like I've been getting tons of White Sox lately!! (Konerko, Thornton, Beckham, Pierzynski, etc).

Thanks, Mike. Have you sent to most of the ones I've been getting back?

Yeah, I sent a few requests out today. I already had some of the ones that you got, except I don't have any of the prospects. It's too bad that I know next to nothing about who to send out to prospect wise.

I'm glad to help you get started!! You can start by looking at Top Prospect lists (overall and by team) and then look at their stats on milb.com. The White Sox have a pretty bad farm but Nestor Molina and Keenyn Walker are a few guys who I know sign.

Thanks for the help. It's pretty pathetic if Molina and Walker are your top prospects. I have a stack of bowman cards that I'll have to go through.

Yeah, the Giants aren't looking too good either. There's a bunch of 2012 Bowman guys that sign, feel free to pm me with any questions.

I got my 100th TTM success today!!!

Mike Leake 1/1 c/o Reds in 29 days

My second success from Mr. Leake, he is a great signer. I love how he personalizes them, it's a nice touch.

No returns today. I updated the statistics section and cut out the average return info.

Got 1 return today. The last week has been slooooooow because I hadn't sent out in three weeks. Tomorrow will be day 5 since my 50+ TTM sendout day, so by Monday (day 7) hopefully the returns will pick back up.

Rafael Ortega 1/2 c/o Modesto Nuts PO Box in 29 days



He answered my questions, can anyone help interpret the first answer? Does he sing the anthem or have a side job or what?

Probably meant to say whenever I swing. Or he is just being a smartass

Mail came early today!! 2 awesome MLB returns.

Wei-Yin Chen 1/1 c/o Orioles in 45 days

Sweet success from the Orioles rookie, who's having a pretty solid season so far.



Ben Zobrist 3/2 c/o Rays in 54 days

Great success from the Rays' OF. I'm glad he took the time to sign both of my cards, as many major leaguers have signed only one in my experience.



He also added a personalized, religious card:

Wow, I bet that Zobrist signed all of our cards in the same batch.

I bet you're right!!

Got two nice, fast returns today, both from that huge 8/6 sendout.

Angelys Nina 2/2 c/o Tulsa Drillers in 7 days

Nice return from the Dominican Rockies prospect, he has a great looking auto and I'm glad that there was no smearing



Brian Johnson 1/1 c/o Lowell Spinners in 7 days

Nice return from the Red Sox first round pick (#31 overall) who has yet to allow a run with the Lowell Spinners. Kind of funny that he did the personalization across his face.

Got some more mail today!! 3 successes and a RTS from Lucas Sims. I have a 4 day mail day streak going now!!

Michael Wacha 1/1 c/o Palm Beach Cardinals in 8 days

Awesome success from the Cardinals first round pick this year (19th overall). He has been lights out so far in his pro debut, he was promoted to Palm Beach after 3 games in the GCL, and has 11 Ks through just 6 IP, with just 1 hit and 1 walk (no runs). I'm excited for this kid's future.



And oh by the way, he answered my questions too I think he decided to use a ballpoint pen for both the card and the questions, which worked out well for the questions but not so well for the card. I'm very, very happy regardless.





Kyle Hudson 1/1 c/o Lehigh Valley IronPigs in 8 days

I'm pumped to get another 2012 Topps RC auto from the base set, I think I probably have 6-7 by now. Pretty good considering I only started TTM after spring training was over. Hudson has gone from the Orioles to the Rays and then to the Phillies since this card was made, he is currently with the Phillies AAA affiliate. Fun fact: in his 4 years of pro ball, he has yet to hit a HR. He's more of a leadoff hitter anyways.



Rick Reuschel 4/4 c/o home in 8 days

Glad to get these back from "Big Daddy." Nice, quick return, he's a great signer.

4 more returns today!

---------------

Josh Tomlin 1/2 c/o Indians in 9 days

Nice fast return from the Indians starting pitcher. I also sent him a 2012 Topps card, which he kept.



Justin Masterson 2/2 c/o Indians in 37

Another nice return from another Indians starter, always nice to add a Gypsy Queen to my burgeoning TTM collection.



Nick Ramirez 1/1 c/o Wisconsin Timber Rattlers in 7 days

Lighting fast return from this Brewers power prospect who was drafted in the 4th round last year out of Cal State Fullerton.



He also answered my questions:






Chris Stewart 2/2 c/o Yankees in 9 days

Last but not least, a sweet return from the Yankees catcher who played for the Giants in 2011. Too bad Topps didn't make any cards of him in Giants uni.



Another pair of awesome answers to my questions:

Those are really sweet Noah! Too bad Melky was suspended for 50 games.

Yeah between the four TTM returns and watching King Felix's perfect game from the fifth inning on, it made yetsterday a little easier on the baseball side of things. Hopefully now with Sandoval back and Belt hitting up a storm, we should be able to make up the run production. By the way, Dunn's big fly yesterday was a sight to behold

Yeah, hopefully the Giants can still win the division. The Sox might actually make the playoffs this year!
