Ps. Use the pre-sealed peel away envelopes. Some players won't send returns if they have to lick them (but now you have DNA samples) time to clone the perfect Josh Bell/nyjer Morgan super human

That's a great way to spend $53. Probably get 45 successes I bet. Where else in the hobby can you spend $53 and get 45-53 autos?????

Happy for you man
Thanks Dan!! Gotta love TTM!

Thanks for the tip. I wish my local Walgreens had the peel away type!!! Sometimes the other kind comes back barely sealed and I worry that the cards might fall out.

First batch of scans is in I will start with my two favorite non-TTM cards that I just received, just because I thought you guys might find them interesting.



From the June BGS Submission, graded 9.5 w 10 auto, serial numbered 1/5:

Ok, here we go. I'm going to do this chronologically:
7/13---> 3 returns
Jake Hager 2/2 c/o Bowling Green Hot Rods in 16 days
Nice success from the 2011 Rays draft pick. Anyone know what he wrote at the end of his auto besides his jersey number (2)??

Tony Cingrani 2/2 c/o Pensacola Blue Wahoos in 17 days
Awesome success from the Reds third round pick in 2011. He has been a BEAST this season, maintaining a 1.15 ERA with high-A Bakersfield through 10 starts before being promoted to AA Pensacola where he has a 2.15 ERA through his first 10 games with them. Averaging well over 9 Ks/9 IP also. I sent him a 2011 Draft paper and chrome, and he swapped the chrome for a pro debut, which is fine with me.

Zach Britton 2/2 c/o Norfolk Tides in 25 days
Glad to get this back just before he got called up to the O's. These cards arrived in the mail the day before he was called up and 3 days before his first MLB start of the year. He has had one nice start since he was called up, but overall hasn't been great. He has a 8.35 ERA so far and gave up 7 runs through 2.2 IP in his last start.

Ok, 7/14 had 0 returns and 7/15 was a Sunday, so on to 7/16----> 7 returns!!

Ariel Pena 2/2 c/o Arkansas Travelers in 7 days
Another nice prospect success, I really like 2012 Bowman for TTM autos.

Carlos Martinez 1/1 c/o Springfield Cardinals in 30 days
Yet another prospect, and one of the Cardinals' best. He's ranked #27 overall according to BA and is having an impressive season.

Ok, last prospect of 7/16, the other 4 are big leaguers

Starling Marte 4/4 c/o Indianapolis Indians in 20 days
Huge success from the Pirates OF prospect. He got called up 9 days after I got this in the mail, and has 2 HRs so far with the Pirates. I rarely send 3 cards to a player and almost never send 4, but I am glad I did here!! The envelope was bursting!

Koji Uehara 1/2 c/o Rangers in 19 days
Pretty happy with this success from the Rangers reliever. He signed my 2012 topps but sent back the 2011 unsigned.

Jordan Zimmermann 1/2 c/o Nationals in 30 days
Nice looking auto from one of the Nats' best pitchers. He's having a phenomenal season so far, with a 2.28 ERA and 1.06 WHIP. I also sent him a 2012 Bowman, which he kept.

Tom Wilhelmsen 2/2 c/o Mariners in 7 days
Awesome success from the Mariners' closer. He is really talented, with an upper 90s fastball and a sharp curveball. He closed out the Mariners' combined no-hitter a month or so ago.



I wrote him a nice note and wrote down a few questions, which he answered. Let me know what you guys think about the questions, because I don't need to post them in the future if you aren't interested.

Paul Konerko 2/2 c/o home in just 9 days!!!
I saved the best of 7/16 for last, SOO excited about this return. He has had a fantastic career and incredible season (.323 AVG with 17 HRs). Unfortunately, the bottom of the envelope got wet (it's the bottom of the second column from the left in the picture from page 5) but luckily only the bottom left corners of each of the cards got a tiny bit damaged. Not a big deal for me at all, I'm just sooo excited to get this one back. And I can think of a certain White Sox fan that might enjoy this post

Wow. Where do you store your TTMs? I have a book. Also, would you mind giving me a list of your successes of the current MLB players when you're done? It will help me update our thread.

I put them in penny sleeves and toploaders. Do you put yours in 9 pocket pages? Sure, I would be glad to post a list of all of the MLB players when I'm done.

Actually, I have a book where you can put one TTM per page. It's just wide enough to hold index cards, and small pictures.

Oh cool. Do you know what your count is right now for TTM returns?

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

On to 7/17!! ---------> 2 returns

Robbie Erlin 3/3 c/o San Antonio Missions in 8 days
Nice success from the Padres prospect who was traded from the Rangers in the Mike Adams trade. Maybe he switched to black sharpie after the blue didn't give on the Topps 100?



He also answered my questions:
