No TTM returns in the last 2 weeks, but I did get a few IP autos this past week. Here's what I got-

Our trip started off by going to the Cedar Rapids Kernels vs. Quad Cities River Bandits. This was about a 10-12 hour trip just to get that far. We missed the top of the first, but I was able to get one autograph afterwards of Mr. Lance McCullers


Our trip continued by going to Milwaukee vs. Philadelphia. I tried graphing the Phillies but hardly anybody signed so I was shutout. Next game was White Sox vs. Blue Jays. Again, not many signed, and the ones who did weren't worth it for me since I only had baseballs with me. Josh Thole, Andy LaRoache, and one other player signed before we were kicked out. I did help a young kid, about 9-10 years old out. He just wanted any auto so I got him Andy LaRoache on his ball.

Next was Chicago Cubs vs. Cincinnati Reds. Since we were riding the "L" for the first time, we arrived to Wrigley much faster than expected. We wandered around a little bit, and then I saw people standing by a gate. I figured what the heck, so I head that way. Sure enough, a player exits a cab and is walking in right there. It was Mr. Todd Frazier. Seemed like a great guy. Asked me how I was doing and vice versa. Wished him luck as he signed my ball for me. We wait a few more minutes and Mr. Jay Bruce arrives. He signs for everybody who was there so I now I have 3 out of my 7 baseballs signed. We wait a little longer before we decide that nobody else is going to show up. I didn't care that they side paneled the balls. I was just happy to get some decent autos.



The last leg of our trip is a Twins vs. Phillies game. My plan was to graph the game, but decided not to since I was just enjoying the stadium like always. We were lucky enough to get early admittance to see Twins BP. A fellow collector on another site is a season ticket holder and got my family on the list for this. Can't thank him enough. Earlier in the week, I heard about a Josh Willingham signing in the cities on the last day we would be there. I convinced my mom that we needed to go. Met up with TGutta08 there. He told me he had a surprise for me, and I had no idea what to expect. He pulls a Josh Willingham bobblehead out of his bag for me. Again, I couldn't thank him enough. Also, earlier in the week I opened 2 rack packs of Topps Archives, and was lucky enough to pull a Josh Willingham card. I opened these the same day I found out about the signing so I was very lucky.

Finally broke the 23 day dry spell! And it was with a good one too. I can't access my spreadsheet or use my scanner because my computer is down so I'm using a family members for now. I'm uploading the image to my bucket right now from my phone. I'd have to say that this is probably top 3 in my returns so far.

Had 3 more returns today!!!!
Ara Parseghian- 2/1 on 2012 Ginter and index card
Bob Motley- 2/1 on 2008 Ginter and book plate
Herb Simpson- 4-10/1. Sent Mr. Simpson a 2009 Ginter and an index card to answer some questions. He included his own IC with each one having an answer on it. He also signed each index card below his answer; however, he also signed the back of everything. So 4 index cards with 2 signatures each and one 2009 Ginter with 2 signatures. On the back of the Ginter, he also wrote "May God Bless you Mr. Clark" and each index card also has "May God Bless you Zachary"

Thanks Dan! I think of it as my best success so far in the 80 or so requests I have sent out. I knew it was a longshot, but I figured I might as well try since I'm going for the set.

Mike Cameron- 3/3, signed one card on front and back. Was able to get him on a 2008 Ginter for the set. I'm now at 22 signed cards now

Edit- After looking at it again, one of the cards had somebody else pictured, so on the front he wrote "Not Me" and then signed the back where his picture was. I think its unique, but I wish there was a way to display both sides of it lol

Liam Hendriks- 3/3 in about 3 weeks or so, don't have my list right in front of me. Already got him before, but I finally grabbed an Allen and Ginter RC of his to get signed, so I also sent 2010 Bowman Chrome and 2012 Topps Chrome. Wish he could start pitching well again, had high hopes for him going into 2012

Sending my first baseball TTM tomorrow, hopefully it all goes well. Sending to Bobby Doerr since I know I will get it back and he's a member of the HOF. I have 2 more baseballs to send out, but may not send them out right now. Getting a bunch of requests ready to go as well, just need to find my envelopes

My drought ended today! Today brought me Bobby Doerr 1/1 on a baseball. I did get a scanner over the weekend so once the driver finished installing, I will scan and post up my successes that were never scanned

Finally have a working scanner. So here's everything other than index cards that I have not posted yet-

Starting with 2008 Allen and Ginter, I'm working on the set and have 28 signed so far
