:)[/QUOTE]

I send out about a week before pitchers and catchers get there so its there when the players get there.

Truemountaineer 01-14-2013 12:10 PM

I have no idea who I should send to this year. Might try to get some Rays players (im a die hard yankees fan but we have a local team Single A rookie league for the Tampa Bay Rays)

Joshua961203 01-14-2013 10:33 PM

how do you send 8x10'ss do u topload it and include a sharpie or just send.. the pic alone with a sase.. dont want my sharpie to crush the pic

Truemountaineer 01-14-2013 10:56 PM

DO NOT TOPLOAD. some players will not take it out of the toploader and sign the toploader.

I'm completely new to ttm, but I decided to give it a shot this year. I was thinking about just sending out cards to guys who are good signers based on past years, but where's the fun in that? :D Here's who i'm attempting (all 8x10s):

Kirk Gibson
Will Middlebrooks
Andrelton Simmons
Mariano Rivera
Mike Zunino
Nick Castellanos
Manny Machado
Jason Kipnis
Danny Hultzen
Chris Sale
Dylan Bundy
Yoenis Cespedes
Gio Gonzalez
David Freese

I got a really good price on the 8x10s from Adorama.com so i'd be happy even if I only have a couple successes. We'll see how it goes! :)!

Ive heard Gibson is hit or miss, and that Rivera only signs a handful each year (if you get lucky, congrats). i did send to Gio last year for ST and havent gotten anything back yet. pretty much everyone else on your list is (or was this past year at least) pretty good signers i believe...

That gives me hope for a good return! When do you usually send your requests out? If Mo is only going to sign a few, I think it would be to my advantage to have the picture arrive at pretty much the same time pitchers and catchers report.

J_A_S_Z 01-18-2013 12:52 AM

If you have older 80=90 topps alot of coaches are good signers in ST. Every year there are a few surprises who sign. Just have to send to who you like and check the 2012 success thread.

Do not waste your stamps on Machado. He told me when he is with Delmarva he does not sign anything sent to him.

[QUOTE=crabbygraphs;4053713]Do not waste your stamps on Machado. He told me when he is with Delmarva he does not sign anything sent to him.[/QUOTE]

Thanks for the tip. I'll save it and try to get him IP.

Firebirds11 01-18-2013 09:58 PM

Don't send to Joba. I sent him a baseball four years ago, and I never got it back.

danmecum51 01-29-2013 07:31 PM

I'm going to bump this because I think it's extremely useful for the next few weeks


Thanks again Aaron for posting this

patriots1983jb 01-30-2013 04:01 PM

Is it a good idea to send to pitchers and catchers now? or wait closer til when they report?

junebug1129 01-31-2013 02:04 AM
