Just three returns today. I now have a 15 day mail streak going.

----------

Ben Zobrist 2/1 c/o Rays in 19 days

My second success from Mr. Zobrist, I'm pumped to get his auto on a Gypsy Queen. He also included a personalized religious card.



Ross Detwiler 1/1 c/o Nationals in 21 days

Very nice success from the 6th overall pick in 2007. He has been very solid in the majors so far as a starting pitcher with the Nats.



Josh Collmenter 2/2 c/o D-Backs in 48 days

Great looking auto on these, I saw him pitch this year in Spring Training so it's nice to get his autos TTM. He had a fantastic rookie season last year, baffling hitters with his funky delivery, but has slipped to the bullpen this year.

Just one today. I now have a 16 day mail streak!!!

--------

Lars Anderson 1/1 c/o Colombus Clippers in 8 days

Very fast return from the Oakland native who was traded from the Red Sox to the Indians for a pitcher who has started mixing in knuckleballs with the rest of his repertoire!! I love the way these came out.

Awesome all around return from a very promising Braves prospect. He was drafted in the 4th round last year and had a sensational season in the short-season Appalachian league. He continued to put up great numbers this year with high A Lynchburg which earned him a promotion to AA Mississippi.



He also answered my questions:

You two have the same handwriting! If only you could pitch like him ; )

Hahaha I guess you're right!! The "y" is the only letter I saw that we write differently

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

Here's yesterday's mail, I also got Kyle Waldrop (Reds prospect, not Twins pitcher) bu the auto almost completely rubbed off. I think he used like a felt pen or something.

And today's mail, I'm now at 18 with the streak I believe. It feels like forever since I've had a day without a TTM haha. I'm pumped to get Fernandez on my second try because he's going to be a beast.

Thanks and I agree about Nicolino, I took a risk sending him just chrome and I'm glad it paid off.

----------

Sorry guys, been busy. Streak still alive though, 8/31 brought it to 19 with four returns and 9/1 brought it to 20 with a whopping 9 returns!!!

8/31 return #1/4:

Jesus Galindo 2/2 c/o Augusta Greenjackets in 90 days

This was one of the first TTMs I sent out. I really wasn't expecting it back so it was a great surprise!! Of course the chrome was unprepped and therefore looks bad. Galindo has fantastic speed on the basepaths and in CF, he has 40 SBs this season and if he can keep hitting, he should keep ascending through the minors quickly.

8/31 return #2/4:

Deven Marrero 1/1 c/o Lowell Spinners in 25 days

Great, personalized success from the Red Sox first round pick this year.

8/31 return #3/4:

Travis Mattair 1/1 c/o Bakersfield Blaze PO Box in 11 days

Awesome return from "Moose." He has put up great numbers this year (.270 AVG, 18 HRs, 81 RBI) and should be promoted to AA at least to start next year.

8/31 return #4/4

Keenyn Walker 3/3 c/o Winston-Salem Dash in 18 days

Nice success from the White Sox 2011 first round draftee. He is a great athlete with pure speed and projects to be a leadoff type.

On to the 9 returns from 9/1:

9/1 return #1/9:

Jacob Anderson 2/2 c/o Bluefield Blue Jays in 56 days

Great return from the 2011 first round pick out of HS. He has lots of raw talent and will still be 19 until the end of November.

9/1 return #2/9:

John Hicks 2/2 c/o High Desert Mavericks in 19 days

I really don't understand how a player can be drafted by the Mariners and Topps thinks he's a D-back. I mean really?!? Hicks was drafted in the 4th round last year and put up great numbers with Clinton, and then continued to do so with High Desert this year.

9/1 return #3/9:

Chad James 1/1 c/o Jupiter Hammerheads in 18 days

James was a first round pick in 2009 (18th overall) but has been inconsistent in the pros so far. He still has great stuff and could definitely pull it all together and be at the front end of a big league rotation at some point.

9/1 return #4/9:

Kevin Patterson 1/1 c/o Lansing Lugnuts in 16 days

Nice return from the Blue Jays power-hitting 1B prospect who has 19 HRs this year. He crossed out my return address on my SASE and filled in his own! Thought that was kind of funny, I guess he would want the card back if it couldn't be delivered to me.

9/1 return #5/9:

Kolten Wong 1/1 c/o Springfield Cardinals in 7 days

Awesome, fast success from the Cardinals' 1st round pick (22nd overall) in 2011 and an all-around talented player. He can rack up all kinds of offensive stats; SBs, HRs, AVG, 3Bs, and more. He should end up in Busch Stadium sooner rather than later.

9/1 return #6/9:

Khris Davis 2/2 c/o Nashville Sounds in 7 days

Another fast return from that small-ish 8/25 sendout. Davis has played at three different levels this year in the Brewers' organization and has hit well over .300 in all of them. I think he will be with the big league club next year.

9/1 return #7/9:

Josh Rutledge 1/1 c/o Rockies in 7 days

Awesome success from the Rockies SS who has filled in nicely for Tulo. I just wish Topps gave him a RC in series 2 this year.

9/1 return #8/9

David Bell 1/1 c/o Louisville Bats in 7 days

Sweet return from the former Giant and current manager of the Louisville Bats, the AAA affiliate of the Reds. Bell was the one charging home during the famous incident where JT Snow whisked away Dusty Baker's son (the bat boy) from the plate just in time during the 2002 postseason. The card looks sweet in person, it's actually a gold refractor and I love the way it turned out.

9/1 return #9/9:

Ryne Sandberg 1/1 c/o home in 11 days with donation

HUGE return from the Cubs' legend. I love everything about this return, I think it just looks outstanding. Easily one of my new favorite TTMs.
