Another return today, 1/1 from Bill Mueller. I thought from the postmark, that it was from AFL... but I'm still happy to get any sigs back

17 days. Hoping for more this week!

Also received a recent photo order from Shutterfly (was expecting this on friday.. uhh), so I'll have some more non-baseball sendouts this week. Trying my first film production office for movie vv! hope it works.

I don't know if anyone else on here likes to print 4x6s to get signed either ttm or ip, but my source at Photo Books, Holiday Cards, Photo Cards, Birth Announcements, Photo Printing | Shutterfly is currently offering a really great deal for 100 free 4x6s. Offer ends Friday - coupon code is SPOOKY. You just need to set up a quick and free easy account, shipping is really priced fairly. I'm definitely using this now for my Spring Training wish list

Met Orlando Cabrera today in Portland, ME at his signing. Got ss on ROMLB in blue and very nice silver on a 4x6 from the 2004 World Series. Also got my picture with him too

So many 2004 Red Sox remain on my bucket list, but at least in the past few weeks I've been able to chip away at 2 more.

Here's what I do have and from what year I obtained it:

Youkilis - 2007
Timlin - 2009
Kapler - 2009
Embree - 2009
Bellhorn - 2011
Arroyo - 2012
Lowe - 2013
Mueller - 2013
Cabrera - 2013

Would love to add Damon, Nixon, Wake, and any other ttm/ip in the future!

So while I was in Maine this weekend, I did receive a ttm back on saturday. 1/1 from Mike Mussina! A heads up for anyone looking to add him, his addy in the database is outdated. He has since moved, and now lives in Muncy, PA.

it was postmarked from Harrisburg, overall took about 9 days. Signed nicely in blue. Pics later

Got the weirdest failure I've ever gotten today, Mike Piazza returned my card and letter unsigned in my sase without even sealing it. And it was one of those Staples easy peel-and-stick envelopes too. On top of that, it looks like he tried to tear my card but couldn't. Wow, what a jerkass, lol.

Which Mike Piazza was it?

Sounds like the former catcher wants you to pay $100+ at a show

Fantastic surprise in the mailbox today!! it was from the Arizona Fall League even though it actually wasn't one of the 25 players I sent to - from Henry Urrutia

I sent to him twice during the regular season, to both AAA (index card) and MLB (4x6) while the 4x6 was what came back today. 120 days in total, signed brilliantly in blue Completely wasn't expecting this.

Nice returns dude.

Although I'll be honest and say that your post about how Mussina address is outdated gave me a heart attack. Mainly because I sent him the only card I had of him (as a Yankee) a while back...

I'm sorry to hear about that, where do you get your cards? When I started buying mine online, I used COMC on Amazon but goddamn I was getting wrecked by the insane prices. It was like, $30 each order for maybe 20 cards at max. They charge you multiple times for shipping per each 5 cards or something dumb. So I tried a few alternatives, and found my greatest experience to be with Triple Play Sports Sioux Falls in North Dakota on Amazon - people always recommend Burbank but the order I had from them wasn't very good. Most orders I buy through them never come out to more than $10, and this is for like 20-30 cards each time. I got the Mueller, heritage Cron, and Mussina (old playstation contest card ftw!) all through them recently. In fact, probably close to 20/27 things I sent to the Arizona Fall League in late September were ordered from them.

I strongly recommend Triple Play Sports - Sioux Falls! http://www.amazon.com/2005-Topps-147...s=mike+mussina

Another Arizona Fall League return today! 1/1 from Jorge Soler, corners are a little dinged but sig is perfect.

41 days in all 4/25 Arizona Fall now!

Although it's been really slow lately, at least I'm getting at least 1 thing back per week it seems! Received another Arizona Fall League success today with Branden Kline of the Baltimore Orioles (Surprise Saguaros) in 47 days, signed perfectly in black. First success with that team so far.

That puts me at 5/25, or 20% success rate for Arizona Fall in total.

I've gotten successes from Mesa (3/5), Salt River (1/4) and Surprise (1/4) so far, but nothing from the other teams yet as I'm: Glendale (0/3), Peoria (0/5), and Scottsdale (0/4).

Cory Spangenberg of the Padres today, 1/1 from Arizona Fall League. Finally, a Peoria success!

That puts me up to 6/25 for Arizona Fall, or about 24% success.

Breaking it down again:

Mesa (3/5) 60%
Salt River (1/4) 25%
Surprise (1/4) 25%
Peoria (1/5) 20%
Glendale (0/3) 0%
Scottsdale (0/4) 0%

Would be nice to see a few more returns this week as the AFL just finished up, still waiting on some big names like Crick, (mvp) Bryant, Hedges, Sanchez, Moran, and a few I was dying to get like Amador and Alvarez

Thank you! And as always, I greatly appreciate it.



Unrelated, I'll try to start posting scans of my newest successes more regularly, maybe every Sunday or something. I'm aware of the lack of pictures for my google docs page, but I honestly haven't the patience to go and scan or rescan the many graphs i've received since April.

As predicted yesterday in another thread, I did in fact receive 1/1 of Nolan Fontana of the Astros today. Puts me at 7/25 or 28% now for AFL. Second success from Peoria's team at Surprise. 52 days

Mesa (3/5) 60%
Peoria (2/5) 40%
Salt River (1/4) 25%
Surprise (1/4) 25%
Glendale (0/3) 0%
Scottsdale (0/4) 0%

Just saw this post, and I would like to say thank you for using Triple Play Sports in Sioux Falls, SD. My dad lives in Sioux Falls and I always stop in there for a visit when I'm seeing my dad. I really like the guy who runs the place. I encourage you to keep using them, gotta help the little guys out
