Was finally able to get some enveloped and stamps, but apparently not enough. I guess I save the others for regular season TTM's.

I'm excited to see what I get back!

Weird thing today. I believe it was my Tom Milone package, but I got a SASE returned to sender (me) today, and it was torn about an inch and a half in the corner. It was only that envelope that got sent back, so I'm guessing that either my package was really mistreated and ripped and the SASE fell out, or there's a really big Tom Milone fan working at my PO.

So, I guess I won't be getting cards back from Mr. Milone, and I don't think he'll be getting any from me...

Have sent out a few more and have gathered a bunch of cards I'm going to be sending during the regular season. I have a good feeling about this year!

Got my first success today. It was probably the most excited thing I've experienced since joining the hobby.

Mike Cameron 3/3



I'm hooked...

Yeah, I've seen that. I'm going to send out more NBA TTM's during the offseason. I don't want to send out during playoff runs when the player is a lot more focused on the remaining games.

I don't know why I haven't done this before. A lot more fun than just throwing base cards away or in the attic.

Congrats on your first return! Keep writing to players you like, and don't get discouraged during "lull" periods when it seems like nothing will ever arrive.

Thanks lol. I have yet to receive anything I sent to ST, so that's a bit of a bummer. I think I'm going to send out a lot more to retired players, guys who I know won't be moving from city to city, state to state every week.

From Tampa, Florida. 5/5 from Wade Boggs with a $5 donation.



$5 well spent, much better than a crappy rack pack of Bowman Chrome.

I have a contest going on in the Baseball forum for one of them, perhaps you can win one instead of receiving one from him

Haven't had any returns this week, a little bummed. However, I was able to pick up some photo paper at Walmart and have printed a few 4x6 photos. They look awesome and I'll be sending to some guys who were automatic during ST for TTMers, such as Danny Hultzen, Kyle Zimmer, Billy Hamilton, and I'm going to try Oscar Taveras, Kevin Gausman, and Kevin Van Dam (pro fisherman - have a photo of him that is perfect for an autograph).

Stay tuned!

Still in a bit of a funk. However, I sent out to around 10 propsects, including Bundy, JBJ, Gausman, Zunino, Hultzen, Austin Meadows, Hamilton, etc... and some big name guys from other sports like Nowitzki, Kevin Love, and Steve Young. If I could get at least 3 back from those guys, I'd consider it a huge success.

Two awesome successes today, both being top pitching prospects. First one was 2/2 from Kyle Zimmer - Bowman Chrome and 4x6 photo signed in black sharpie, undamaged. Second one was 2/2, by far my favorite as of now - even better than Wade Boggs 5/5. The card and photo got damage in a corner (They were sticking out of the package for some reason - should figure out how to prevent that in the future). Kevin Gausman personalized my Bowman and 4x6 to Tom and inscribed "Seawolves got lucky!" on the photo.

As you know, Gausman went to LSU and they faced my hometown team, the Stony Brook Seawolves, in a three game series to see who would go to Omaha. LSU took game 1, but Stony Brook (led by Travis Jankowski and William Carmona) took the next 2 and made it to the CWS for the first time in history. Anyways, I wrote in my note that I was a huge fan of his, ironically also being a life-long Stony Brook fan. I think it's just awesome that he read my note, acknowledged it, and is such a good sport about it. I really hope he can make it big now.

Another very nice success today, from Tacoma, WA. Was hoping it was Zunino, but this is just as good.

2/2 4x6 photos from Danny Hultzen signed boldly in black, photos still in good condition. Very very happy with my Minor League success this year. Hopefully Gausman, Zimmer, and Hultzen can turn into Verlander, Price, and Halladay

I'm 99% sure I did. I just looked up their minor league team on baseball-reference, went to their team site, and got the address. Zimmer hasn't moved at all this year, so Wilmington is the city to send to.

I would definitly recommend it. I love sending to minor leaguers. Who knows, maybe in a few years these guys will be stars who sign as often as Mariano Rivera does.
