1 success today. The envelope was in really bad condition, but the 2 cards were perfectly fine. Scans coming soon.

2/2 returned from Indians ace Justin Masterson. It took around 40 days for them to be returned, but it was worth the wait. Both are in great condition and signed beautifully with the inscription John 16:33 - “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

Those look great, I wrote to him almost two months ago hopefully they'll come back tomorrow. Masterson's one of my favorite players, so underrated. Really nice guy too, he signed my ball for me before a game at Fenway when I was younger

Thanks! And yeah, I've heard nothing but great things about Justin. And I agree, extremely underrated.

Thanks! And I agree, I love the inscriptions that some players add. It just makes the auto that much more special.

I don't especially like bible verses on autographs, but the one JM gave you isn't overbearing, and he's always been known as a great guy.

Being Catholic, I obviously have no problem with it and enjoy them, but, kind of like James Ramsey, the way they sign their name gives them a great spot to add an inscription (both have a long straight line at the end then add their inscription next to it).

Yeah, it looks like it. Now is the time where I plan on sending to some of the big name guys. If you look on SCF, you see that guys like Strasburg get sent to in late July/early August and people got returns in the offseason. I guess I'll test my luck

Lol yeah. I prep my card by "erasing" it back a fourth for a minute or two, but never prepped the edges. I guess I learned my lesson.

I would definitely recommend it. If sending chrome cards, be sure to prep the ENTIRE surface haha.

Prospects seems to be so automatic. Try to get as many as you can now. Chances are a bunch of them are duds, but one or two may become the next Albert Pujols or Felix Hernandez.

I did a poor job of prepping a Adalberto Mondesi for a friend and it bubbled. He doesnt know the difference though. Oooops!

I agree with this. It costs about $2 a player for an autograph for possibly the next big thing.

One of my favorite TTM mail days to date. Only 2 packages, but they're extremely special to me. 5 items in total.

First success was Phillies prospect, former Stony Brook SeaWolf, and Long Island native William Carmona. I wrote him a lengthy note saying how I've always dreamed of playing ball at Stony Brook and told him to make Long Island proud. He signed a 2012 Bowman Prospects base, 2012 Bowman Chrome Blue Wave, and answered my question card. For those of you who can't really see it too well, I wrote:

"Describe the team's (Stony Brook's) attitude after the heartbreaking loss to LSU in Game 1 of the 2012 Super Regionals"

And he wrote:

"We were disappointed, but we knew we could come back and win two. We were better than them at every single position."

Definitely up there among my favorite successes.
