4 returns today!

first off we have Raul Alcantara who is Oakland's #8 prospect and third best pitching prospect. Raul is 12-4 with a 2.95 ERA in 25 games this season! Great success!

2nd is Braves #11 prospect shortstop Jose Peraza who is batting .279 1hr 43rbis and 59 stolen bases! Also another addition to my pro debut set!
[IMG][/IMG]

Third is new Royals middle infielder Jamey Carroll who signed a 2013 topps beautifully, and I must say I love his pose in the picture!
[IMG][/IMG]

And lastly is Cubs outfielder Nate Schierholtz who is arguably having the best year of his career! Very happy to see this one come back signed on a 2013 topps!

Nice returns! It was sad to see Jamey Carroll leave the Twins, but I'm glad he's on a team that is somewhat in the playoff race

I didn't think schierholtz would get a cubs card until 2013 update. I got him today too

Thank you! I've always liked watching him play, seems like he's finally got a shot to make the playoffs!

Three returns to share, one from Wednesday and two from today!

From the other day I received Eric Young Jr. c/o the mets, he has been a very nice addition to the team and has been quite exciting to watch! Think he could be in their future plans as the Mets look to rebuild. One of the nicer looking signatures and he also inscribed #r2bi which after some research I believe it stands for "refuse 2 be ignored". very cool success.
[IMG][/IMG]

On to today's returns. First one was a 15 day wait, coming from Mariners third basemen I got Kyle Seager on a 2013 topps, he is hitting .277 with 21hr and 61rbis, a breakout year for him and will be a key piece as the Mariners go forward.

[IMG][/IMG]

And my second return today was least to say surprising. Sent it out last October so I thought it was long gone. His final record as a pitcher was 305-203 with a 3.54 ERA and 2607 career strike outs. He was part of an unstoppable rotation and I believe is on his way to Cooperstown. One of my favorite successes of the summer, Tom Glavine.

Went to last night's Red Sox game but I will start with the 2 ttms I got today!

A 7 day return from Cardinals pitcher Joe Kelly who may play a huge role in the Cardinals postseason hopes as he has stepped into the starting rotation!

[IMG][/IMG]

And my other ttm was pretty cool, got my card signed from Christian Friedrich who also included a note with my signed card, very cool!

Now for last night's game in Boston, I will go in order of how I got my 8 IP successes!

Starting off got in during the Sox BP and I brought this with hopes of getting it signed and I couldn't be happier to have it now framed and on the wall signed. Going to school right in Boston and having such a close connection to the city when the Boston Marathon bombing occurred it felt very personal, and the Red Sox were sort of the healing process for Boston. So when Sports Illustrated had the Boston Strong cover with Jonny Gomes on the cover back in April I knew I had to get Gomes to sign it. He was headed into the dugout after BP and I held up the magazine and asked him to sign it and I think he saw the magazine because he wasted no time getting over to sign it for me. By far one of my favorites to get!

[IMG][/IMG]

Next I got a Red Sox legend who now does the pre game show, I saw him standing by the dugout and was thrilled to get one of my all time favorite Red Sox pitchers! Tim Wakefield!
[IMG][/IMG]

3rd was Red Sox third basemen Will Middlebrooks who has really turned it on this August after being sent down to work things out, he will be a big part in the Sox playoff run! Also probably the most fan friendly on the team!

[IMG][/IMG]

Lastly for the Red Sox was a two step process haha. David Ortiz's son was on the field playing around and he actually tossed me a baseball which I then used to get Manager John Farrell to sign. He had a sharpie in his hand already but still a cool one to get regardless!

[IMG][/IMG]

Now onto the White Sox. I got two pitchers right as BP was starting as they were just standing by the dugout and both very good to get! First is the closer Addison Reed who is one of the more underrated closers in my opinion. And next was rookie Andre Rienzo who was just promoted and actually was another addition to my '13 pro debut collection!

[IMG][/IMG]

[IMG][/IMG]

Next I got left fielder Dayan Viciedo who is a really nice guy, solid hitter, and I love his signature!

[IMG][/IMG]

And to end the night with a bang! I saw him running in from the end of BP and he must've known someone in the crowd since he ran right over to him! I made my way over and he began signing autographs! The White Sox ace and who I believe is a top ten pitcher, Chris Sale!

That Christian Friedrich return is amazing considering that it looks like he wrote all of that in addition to the autograph.

I was so thrilled when I saw he had taken the time to also write the note, class act! Hope he gets healthy and back in the rotation!
