Really happy for the 2 ttms i got today! Matt Harrison and Stefen Romero, both sent and received simultaneously, in about 21 days

Will post scans and any ips tonight!

A bit random, but has anyone ever been to a minor league all star game? I was thinking of only going to the Eastern League autograph signing on 9 tue of july but I'm not sure what to expect. I hope Henry Urrutia will be there ever after he got promoted, not sure how that works


EDIT: Didn't go tonight, too rainy. will go tomorrow hopefully!

Nice return! He's on the DL, so maybe he's rehabbing in Florida?

ah true... didn't even occur to me!


A little random but I bought Canadian stamps on the internet and when those come I have a card to send to Munenori Kawasaki! I bought a card the second he was demoted to AAA but he was literally called back up like 2 days later.... so i figured what the heck. And now i'll have these forever Canadian stamps to send to BLue Jays at home with. Couldn't decide between the HRM Queen Elizabeth II stamps, the Rush LE stamps, or the baby animals stamps! lol.... picked baby animals FTW

Interesting! I've actually never sent to the Blue Jays before because of the stamp situation. How much does it cost to send a letter to Canada? Can you also pay with USA forever stamps?

I've seen a lot of conflicting stories all across the internet, but without having sent an actual letter there yet I believe you need a Canadian stamp equaling $1.10 CAN on the SASE and I believe you CAN use two forever USA stamps on the send envelope!

I bought these specifically: https://www.canadapost.ca/shop/stamp...execution=e1s1

you can have them sent to you in the US!

Just got back from the Reading @ New Britain game, got all I went for! Biddle was actually the starting pitcher but he was inside the dugout like 80 minutes before the game started with his headphones on, and was nice enough to sign for me with no one else around! Then at my seat on the 3rd base side I got Valle and Gillies on cards, and Maikel Franco on the sweet spot of an Eastern League ROMiLB!

Even though the Phils got crushed, almost every player stopped to sign for folks outside. There, I got my last two cards signed (Simon and Mendonca) before I bailed. Sadly, I was a little disappointed that Suomi wouldn't sign an index card! I'm Finnish too and I've never been face-to-face with another Finn outside of my family, haha.

Jesse Biddle = wicked nice

Got a "thin" return from him today too haha. I think the most consecutive days with a return I've had is 3, but I remember getting something like 6 returns during those 2 days.

Nice stuff!

When I ship PWE to Canada, I always use 3 Forever stamps. I know it cost $1.32 (something like that) at the post office when shipping a PWE.

Wow, that's really expensive! Not sure if it's worth trying any of the Blue Jays' players

I've heard that you can get away with 2, not that i've tried it yet. Whenever my Canadian stamps get here from Ottawa I'll try to send to Munenori.

I also need to send to Mark Appel ASAP when he is assigned to short season

Same card here, I'm not far from where the ValleyCats play and I think he'll sign ttm when he'll be assigned there. He should make like 2-3 starts depending how well he does.

sent out to Appel and The Black Keys today! The Black Keys are playing a show near me and I know they sign VV if the venue passes it on. I sent them a printed 8x10. Fingers crossed!

Nice, I sent to Appel on 7/2 at Tri-City as soon as I heard that he would make his debut there. I really hope he signs for us!!

Received Kyle Crick of the San Jose Giants today, 8 days or so.

I tried to put the pic in the op but apparently I've run out of space for one post.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
I went to see Jeter's rehab game in Pennsylvania on Sunday afternoon with my dad. It was like 8 total car hours... Jeter signed plenty before and after but the place was a ****ing madhouse. I did get one signature however, from Cody Ashe of the IronPigs on an index card. Hahahaha

I'm going to the Eastern League AS game signing tomorrow night in New Britain

Awesome, he's my favorite player in baseball! Going to be the Giants' ace for years to come

Does anyone know if that "autographs for a cause" thing the Tigers do is actually worth it? My birthday is coming up in a few days and I'm thinking about sending Miggy a card. I'm wondering if anyone else here has actually gotten him that way.

Make sure you include the full asking price. I sent him like $30 plus a card last year and he declined it. But I believe the Letter he sent had an authentic auto. I just sent the full asking price last week so we will see hat happens.

haha that's so weird... do they still send some weird form like that even if you do have the correct amount? And lol, I really can't picture him saying "see you at the ballpark!". I feel like he'd do it like he read those MLB 13: the Show lines... like with no personality, completely flat.

The sig on the bottom is still awesome though!
If/when i come across the money I'll write out a check.

How does look?

That's a cool card. I sent him a few photos a ginter and a gypsy plus $45. I said in my note for him to sign which ever item he wants to and keep the rest. Crossing my fingers he signs a photo.
