Kyle Crick 2/2 c/o Augusta Greenjackets in 10 days

HUGE success from my favorite player!!! I re-sent to him with a better prepped chrome and some questions, which he answered. I have a ton invested in this guy (in terms of cards) and I think he's going to be the next Matt Cain.



And the questions:

Steve Garvey 2/2 c/o home in 11 days

Nice success, I'm almost sure it's legit. He swapped my 2012 golden moments insert for the All-Star card and sent back a note asking for a donation to his charity.

I have successes from 40 different players, but I probably have 80 or so different things autographed.
------------

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:

And the questions:
Thats really cool that you got your favorite player. I should start doing that question thing, that's really neat.

Thanks Mike, it's so great that my favorite player happens to be such a fantastic signer. I decided to start the questions because I figured it costed me so little (about an extra minute and a notecard) but would be so cool if they answered them.

Yeah, that would be sweet if I could get Konerko TTM.

Al Kaline 1/1 c/o home in 8 days with $5 donation

So thrilled with this return, I love the way it looks. The SASE was stamped from Metroplex, MI so maybe his mail was forwarded to him in Detroit.

That's sweet. It's too bad that the card got beat up a little bit.

I hope you do!!! He seems to be a good signer.

I first ask for the player autograph the card(s), then I say something like, "Also, I have included two short questions on another notecard, it would be really great if you'd take the time to answer them for me!" Originally I just wrote the questions on the back of my LOR and that seemed to work too.

Yeah, I actually didn't notice anything until I looked at the scan. There's some slight fraying along the edges but that thing in the bottom right is just a reflection.

Oh that's good. I should start writing more TTM's again. I've been more focused on my Konerko PC recently.

7/19 was a big day!! -->10 returns!!!

--------

Jeimer Candelario 1/1 c/o Boise Hawks in 12 days

I'm happy about this return from the Cubs prospect, but too bad it didn't come out so well.



Daniel Corcino 2/2 c/o Pensacola Blue Wahoos in 12 days

Nice success from the Reds prospect. I kinda wish he'd signed in a different sharpie, but I'm still very pleased.

Matt Szczur 2/2 c/o Daytona Cubs

Great success from one of the Cubs' top prospects, and personalization is always a bonus. He got called up a few days after I got this back after hitting .295 with Daytona.

Levi Michael 3/3 c/o Fort Myers Miracle in 12 days

Nice success from the Twins prospect. It's ridiculous that Topps mistakingly photoshopped a Rangers uni on him even though he was drafted by the Twins! He has a sick auto, very clean and very smooth.



He also answered one of my questions:

Joe Panik 2/2 c/o San Jose Giants in 52 days

So excited about this return!! I didn't think I'd see it back. He had a slow-ish start this year but is progressing nicely. I've always liked his swing and approach, and I hope to see him holding up the middle infield at AT&T Park soon!

Brad Brach 1/1 c/o Padres in 10 days

Nice, quick success from the Padres rookie.



Steve Delabar 1/1 c/o Mariners in 10 days

I love this guy's story, and it's awesome to get his auto on his RC too.

Heath Bell 3/3 c/o Marlins in 9 days

I re-sent to him to get him to auto a GQ and some other cards in Marlins uni. The 2012 series 1 got kinda beat up but I'm happy with this success.

Doug Fister 1/2 c/o Tigers in 50 days

Awesome success from the Tigers' SP. He's been great since being traded from the Mariners last year. I also sent him a 2011 Topps card in M's uni which he kept.

Ryan Dempster 1/1 c/o Cubs in 9 days

Quick success from the now Rangers pitcher. I love the look of his auto on Gypsy Queen.

7/20------> 4 returns!

--------

Edwar Cabrera 2/2 c/o Colorado Springs Sky Sox in 8 days

He was called up a couple of times this year and struggled, but overall has had a good minor league season.

Charlie Blackmon 2/2 c/o Colorado Springs Sky Sox in 8 days

Another nice success from another member of the Rockies' AAA affiliate. He played for the Rockies in 2011 for his rookie season, and now he's is tearing it up with the Sky Sox, hitting .331 through 46 games and .485 in his last 10. At this rate he should be up with the Rockies soon.



And he answered my questions!!!
