Great success today. Came back in flawless condition. 2/2 4x6 photos from Georgia. (Possibly) The 2013 #1 pick, Austin Meadows

It's funny though - he inscribed one photo with #16 (HS number) and one with #28.

(Photos aren't faded, just the light)

My guess is he inscribed them with whatever number corresponded with the uniform he was wearing

Yeah, that's what I thought, too. What would be really weird is if he gets drafted and doesn't wear either number lol.

3 envelopes in today, was pretty excited to open them up. First one was Tony LaRussa, my first Spring Training return, 1/1 on a 2011 Topps Heritage (one of my favorite sets). Next was from ex-Stony Brook Sea Wolf Joe Nathan, 1/2. Signed the 2011 Topps, but was kind of hoping it would be the 2013 since I really like that design. Still very happy either way.

Last one contained Arnold Palmer. I sent to him before I realized his were autopens. Low and behold, my card was "signed" the same way in the same direction. Not really upset since I did get a return, but it's a bit disappointing.

1/1 4x6. Excellent condition and an even better autograph. Dirk Nowitzki.

I used this address:

Kevin Van Dam
c/o D&R Sports Center Inc.
8178 West Main St
Kalamazoo, MI 49009
USA

I think an 8x10 would be fine, though I've never sent them myself. Just include a SASE and the proper postage and you shouldn't have a problem. Good luck!

Was just thinking about this one earlier today, and finally got a return after almost 3 months. WWF superstar Hulk Hogan 3/3.

Amazing mail day today, 7/7 overall, all items in great condition.

First was 1/1 from Falcons lineman Peter Konz.

Second, 3/3 Jamie Moyer. The ink on one of the cards rubbed off on the back of another, so it's not as bold, but still a great return.

Lastly, and the best, was 3/3 photos from Clint Frazier. Beautifully signed in blue, hopefully I can get the dual out to Austin Meadows and I can have a nice "Top Draft Pick" signed photo .

Another nice success today. There is a bit of speculation in that they may not be legit. 2/2 from Hall of Famer 3rd Baseman: Mike Schmidt. These will go very nice with my Wade Boggs TTM autos

The photo has much more color, the lighting just makes it looks faded.

Yeah, thought so. Kind of like my Arnold Palmer "auto," they still look nice and nobody I know who sees them in person will know

One of the best looking TTM returns I've gotten so far, 1/1 from Tommy Joseph, (12) days. Used bold blue sharpie on a 2013 Bowman COTC mini, signed beautifully.

Just like I would any other chrome card or refractor. I honestly took a pencil with a bold eraser and "erased" the entire surface. Works like a charm.

Thanks for the kind words, as well! I really love the look of it.

I'm pretty sure I sent to the Clearwater Threshers (A+ ball) while he was there for a short while around June 11th. I may have just gotten lucky with this one since he's no longer with them, but with the Rookie League affiliate.

Two more multi-successes today, both being promising prospects.

First was 3/3 from Oakland A's catching prospect Bruce Maxwell. 1 2012 Bowman refractor (smudged on the 'M' - a little disappointing) and 2 paper 2012 Bowman cards.



Second was 2/2 from Tampa Bay Rays prospect Richie Shaffer. 1 2012 paper Bowman (which I contemplated submitting to BGS because it looked pristine) and 1 4x6 photo of him playing at Clemson.

PHOTOS WILL BE UP SHORTLY

PICS


The refractor looks awesome, just was hoping it would be one of the paper cards with the smudge haha. Very happy regardless!
