Got back 2/2 from Wade Boggs today, no donation. 15 days to home.



I don't actually think I mentioned much about his baseball career, I did reference his appearances on The Simpsons and Psych though I'm surprised they came so quickly, and at all! Maybe someday I can get Youk to sign the other side

I sent it to his address listed on the manager.
--------------------------------------------


Received a very pleasant surprise once again today, this time 1/1 from top prospect Aaron Sanchez of the Blue Jays organisation. 98 days from when I sent this during the Arizona Fall League, I didn't expect a return at this point. Glad the possibility of returns from then isn't quite over! I originally sent it to Phoenix around the end of September/early October and received it today postmarked from San Bernardino, CA.

A little update to my Arizona Fall League % Chart:

Glendale (2/3) 66% (Waiting on Derek Dietrich...)
Mesa (3/5) 60% (Kris Bryant and Matt Skole)
Salt River (2/4) 50% (Richie Shaffer and Andrew Chafin)
Peoria (2/5) 40% (Noel Arguelles, Austin Hedges, Japhet Amador)
Surprise (1/4) 25% (Dariel Alvarez, Keith Couch, Matt West)
Scottsdale (0/4) 0% (Kyle Crick, Alex Dickerson, Cory Vaughn, Angel Villalona)

10/25 = 40% total, perhaps there's still hope to come!

Thank you! Me too.

A bit of an update on my thread; in February when I prepare my Spring Training sendouts, I'll start a new thread for 2014 and start something new... I'm thinking about doing monthly videos, recapping my IP and TTMs starting with March and my time in Arizona. I'm not much of a fan of the "ttm mailday" type videos, so I will only do this the last of the month March-September.

Another little update, I've decided to start a Google blog (Blogger) page about my autographs and tips/opinions etc that comes to mind. If anyone's interested, I'll give the link when I finish writing my first post, a piece about my preference of marker.

Very happy to get this one back! 1/1 Chicharito of Manchester United Football I sent it around Thanksgiving, so it was 44 days. Signed really nicely in thin black!

Nice Chico! I want him on a club card from last season but didn't get one. Really nice success, I am glad your overseas one are coming back, they usually take a while. Who else do you have out?

No more footballers, if you're wondering. I only ever sent to him and VP. I was going to send to Bayern Munich and Chelsea at one point but I never did. I might send a hail mary to Neymar if I EVER get the photos online I ordered last week.

I am still waiting on 2 foreign ttms otherwise, one I sent to Munenori Kawasaki in Canada which I never expect to get back and another I sent to Satoshi Tajiri (creator of Pokemon) in Japan which I'm also considerably doubting I will ever see a return from. I sent the Japan one like 4 months ago though, I guess I could give it more time.

I did mail to Neymar today, although I'm really doubting anything will actually come of it. I just sent two cheap 4x6s to the "Carrer d'Arístides Maillol, s/n" address.

Other than that, I've sent out quite a few things lately. I think It's been slow on the returns aside from Chicharito. I'm really hoping for something this week!

In addition to Neymar I also sent to Olivia Culpo today (card and picture, was meaning to send to her a while ago) and Rob Thomas (picture, he's a singer, I really doubt this will work, this was a complete "eh what the heck" sort of thing). The other day I sent to Jackie Chan (picture to Hong Kong, used irc), Jason Giambi (card), Jim Thome (2 cards), Johnny Damon (2 cards), and Jerry Seinfeld (picture). I'm not hopeful for any of these really except for Jackie Chan, which might just take a while. I also sent to Henry Rollins (card) and Scooter Gennett (card) last week. Back in December I sent a bunch of email requests for various musicians I liked, only getting 2 replies out of like 15 emails, both fails, from Carlos Santana and Avicii. Santana's rep told me he won't sign anymore, and Avicii's rep told me that they currently can't fulfill my request because they have nothing to send me and Avicii is on tour.

Going over my current total results from April 2013 until now...

I'm:
55/130 (42%) on active baseball ttms
5/7 (71%) for sports other than baseball ttms
5/15 (33%) retired mlb ttms
0/14 (0%) for music related ttms
0/4 (0%) for misc ttms

In total: 65/170, putting me at 38% success rate for my "career" so far from April 2013 until now. If I never wasted the stamps for music or misc ttms, my success rate would be 43% actually.

No new autograph news, things have been slow lately. I've been working a bit on my blog, hoping to really get the hits flowing once Spring Training commences and I can get a big boost from IP/TTM.

I wrote a new blogpost for today, Monday 1/20/14, about my card sources for autographs. Please do check it out!

Andy's Autographs

With that said, fingers crossed I get a return this week

You need to hit up sportlots for reasonably priced commons and decent shipping.

Very happy to post this return today, 183 days since I sent and my first in 2 weeks!

It's special to me because the first MLB game I ever went to was in 2005 and one of Palmeiro's last. I was starting to think this was long gone!

I always liked palmero. Until his weird comments and reactions to the steroid stuff I thought he was one of the good guys. I'd love to land a palmero. Pretty sweet stuff

No matter the "worst" steroid offender, I'll always admire them just as I did when I was a kid before the crackdowns came. I'm happy to get back Palmeiro, I got Bonds way back ip when I was a kid and now I'd love to add Giambi, McGwire, and Sosa now

Waiting 183 days is nothing

Certainly, it took me like 400 days to get Carl Pavano back I'm hoping more of my older stuff from 2013 will still have a chance of returning... to hard to rule anything out yet!
