Second success was from Hauppauge, New York here on Long Island, which explains why it only took a personal record of 4 days.

Bud Harrelson signed two of my 4x6 photos of him fighting Pete Rose. The color photo is inscribed "N.L.C.S 10-8-73"

My father was a huge fan of his, so a signed photo of him will make an awesome birthday/Christmas gift. It's tough to see, but the color photo is cut off at the top (printer was off-centered), but I think I'll give him that one because of the inscription and it is much more appealing to the eye.

Got a return today, but nothing was in the envelope. I can't really see where it was post marked from. I hope it wasn't from Clayton Kershaw or Josh Hamilton haha.

What a buzz kill.

That sucks! Was it ripped open or just empty? And where was it postmarked from?

It was just an empty envelope. I can't really see where it was postmarked from, it's kind of smeared up top and isn't very legible.

Oh well.

Funny, I was just thinking about it, but it was very interesting to get TTM returns from a player on the Stony Brook SeaWolves and the LSU Tigers, who played in an intense Super Regionals series in 2012.

Here's what Kevin Gausman, LSU pitcher, said about the SeaWolves (obviously kidding, but still funny and pretty cool).

"SeaWolves Got Lucky!"



And William Carmona, SeaWolves third baseman, wrote this:

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



I love this kind of stuff. Anyways, no returns today, but am hoping to get a few that are over-due haha.

Thats awesome, I love when players inscribe something cool. I always ask for players to write something cool on all of my requests

I got the Gausman back in April when he was with Bowie. I got the Carmona a few days ago, so that's what kind of persuaded me to make that post.

For a split second there you had me thinking I should send out a TTM request to Gausman tomorrow, and then I saw that you got it back in April. Oh well.

Nice returns nonetheless though.

Nice successes. My mother grew up on Long Island and her brother/my uncle went to Stony Brook. It was a no-brainer to see them when they came out here for a series against SDSU a few years back.

Very cool! More and more of my friends are being accepted into Stony Brook for the upcoming year. I've always wanted to play baseball at Stony Brook. My best friend's brother played there, graduated a year before Travis Jankowski and William Carmona and is currently playing semi-pro ball.

Amazing 1/1 success on a 4x6 photo from Louisiana today. Sent along with a $5 donation, it was to a private address and I was asked not to share it, so I apologize to anybody who might want to send to him.

Again, just a great success. My brother, for some reason, has always been a die-hard Saints fan. He's been a fan since he was a toddler in the early 1990s, so he's not one of the bandwagon fans who joined when they won the Super Bowl. So, like one of the Harrelsons are going to my father for Christmas, this one is going to my brother.

My first success in quite a long time today. This one took a while, 56 days, but is very worth it. Brings my success percentage to an even 50% and knocks my total signed items total up to 56.

2/2 from Cincinnati Reds prospect, Jesse Winker. Signed in black on a 2012 Bowman Draft paper and chrome.

Today brought my favorite IP auto to date. Paid $4 for it. I already have one of him, but I couldn't pass up on the chance to get this:



Amazing PC addition. So, with him having no autos in any current products, my Rafael Montero autograph count is already up to a solid 2.

That Montero turned out nice. I'm sure there are not many versions of that card signed right now.

Thanks! It's signed really large compared to some of his other IP autos, as well. The only thing I could complain about is the it slightly runs off the card, but even with that the card looks fantastic in person.

I just hope his autos won't slightly run off the card in Bowman Chrome, or be signed on the side

Got a nice success today. We've seen a bunch of returns from him lately. Was it Mark Appel?

Nope, but 3/3 from Washington Nationals prospect Michael Taylor isn't bad.



Funny thing is, I sent this the same day I sent to Appel. My fingers are crossed...

I sure hope so. But since this week has gotten off to a terrible start with Harvey's injury, I'm expecting my photos to either never come back, or come back bent in every way possible.
