Default Josie's TTM success

My goal is to get 1 TTM sent out per week. Each boy has their own binder so I am hoping to keep it up to date as I get returns back. Work has been very busy so I haven't been able to write letters at work like I used to.


2014 TTMS:

Champ Bailey sent: 3/24/14

Sent out 2 more today. The progress is much slower then I hoped but as long as I keep sending them out, I will be happy with my progress.

Oh, I hope that you get some back soon! You should try some baseball, there are some great signers!

I have a lot of extra baseball cards as well! That is a great suggestion. Thank you.

I was sending out to the Phillies but they send back pre-stamped photos. It was still pretty awesome to get something back and I kept the envolopes to put in the boys scrap books.

I would suggest buying a large bowman chrome/bowman baseball lot from 2012 and getting those signed. Most of them are great signers

Feel free to PM me. I have successes from a ton of baseball players. Just let me know if you need any help!

I would suggest not sending to the really big names because most of them don't sign. And try typed letters. You cans send out a lot more a lot faster while typing. I handwrite the ones I really want but type the reputable ttm signers

I haven't gotten any back yet but that is ok. I think I may send requests to all the head coaches. Is it best just to do index cards?

I don't like the idea of sending index cards for some reason but some people do that if they don't have cards of the person available. Not all head coaches sign though. Try sending to some of the past NFL players, some sign very quickly.

Here's my suggestions

Harry Carson
Ozzie Newsome
Steve Largent

Got my first return back! Wasn't able to post a picture because my scanner is being odd but it was from the Bills Head Coach, Chan Gailey. He sent an 8x10 signed pic along with a picture of the team! Pretty excited to get it for my boys!

I sent to Laurinaitis four times or so before and he signed quickly, sent a couple plates a year ago and still haven't gotten them, he seems to have stopped signing.

I am sure someone else on here sent him all 3,000 cards he owns and ruined it for us all!

Thank you! I totally understand that sentiment. They beat my Eagles by cheating! I actually love that he took the time to personalize it for each boy.

Pretty cool. I have never considered TTM's but this may have changed my mind.

Thank you. I hope they learn to love collecting so we can open packs together! I have photo album for each of them that I am going to put all the TTM's we receive in.

Sending out a whole bunch tomorrow. My list needs updated badly but doesn't format right on my iPod.
