Just got back from the Eastern League hr derby !! Got 18 autographs from allstars, including two I wrote to but hadn't heard from (Taillon and Ranaudo), one again I did get ttm previously (Panik) and one I got a few weeks back ip (Goodwin, I wanted to get a better looking sig).
In total, I got 15 of 18 cards signed in addition to 3 index cards when I had the chance. I'll post scans tomorrow...

Pinto
Taillon
Goodwin
Puello
Vazquez
Austin
Flores (NYY)
Rodriguez
Adams
Almanzar
Aguilar
Ranaudo
Wright
Cartwright
Susac

IC:
Murata
Panik
Santos

I skipped over Souza, May, Santana, and Biddle because I already had them from previous weeks. Kelly and Nolin (who I had cards for) weren't actually there because of a trade and promotion. Lastly I just could not find Hernan Perez, who could have very well not been there at all.

OMG great returns today, I'm so happy to get 3 ttm!

Didi Gregorious in MANY days
Kyle Zimmer in less days than Didi
Lucas Giolito in like a week

It's so funny, Lucas is my age exactly (our birthday is coming up) and I told him this in the letter, and he personalized the card "to my b-day bud"... it's awesome!

EDIT: I also have pics from the HR derby.... if any of my pics ever look dirty or beat up it's the sleeves/my dirty scanner!

Haha yeah, I'm actually facebook friends with Kyle Crick, my favorite player!! I'm about to send him some pictures I took of him in San Jose the other day.

Also, awesome IP autos!! How did Susac look at the derby?? I have a ton of his cards

He wasn't in the derby. I think it was just Steve Souza, Jarek Cunningham, Caleb Joseph, Michael Almazar, Jim Murphy, Cesar Puello, and Josmil Pinto along with some local fox sports/other news "celebrities". I'm honestly shocked Puello didn't win it! Afterward at the door there were probably a hundred people waiting for Puello. The mob was insane, like 10 people deep on all sides of the guy. I was pressed against him for like a minute while he signed around me quickly trying to walk to his car.

With the purchase of the derby ticket, people who showed up around 2 hours prior got to go on the field for a whole team autograph signing. Unfortunately, there were WAY too many people there that ended up waiting in line for nothing. The signing was only supposed to be an hour or so and the line moved so slowly. I was only half way through the line myself when the time was cut short, I only got the "West" team (ex. Taillon) during that time which is why I stuck around after to get the "East" guys like Puello and Austin. Overall the night was still wicked fun and I hope I can make the festivities next year assuming it won't be in Richmond or something.



EDIT: Also my Canadian stamps came today from Ottawa, so I'll be sending out to Munenori asap

So I got my 8x10 back today unsigned by the Black Keys, but the management sent an expired ticket and printed set list and they wrote "sorry" on my envelope.... WTF

That was a solid $12 wasted. Lol, a weird birthday gift

So just as my thread hits the bottom of the first page and as the all-star break comes to a close, i finally get a ttm return this week! not from a major leaguer though, from Kevin Pillar of the AAA Blue Jays. I sent to him in New Hampshire back in early June before he got promoted, I'm glad to get this back from AAA!


Also, I'll be headed out to New Britain tonight to try to catch some b-mets after the game Syndergaard hopefully??
EDIT:

Just returned from a quiet night at NB, only went to catch the B-mets leaving and got 4 of 6 cards signed, along with an ic.

Cards:
Noah Syndergaard
Jenrry Mejia
Danny Muno
Wilfredo Tovar

IC:
Pedro Feliciano

I can't make the Sea Dogs at NB set this week but I'm hoping to get to one of the Akron nights when they come through later in the month. I have some really nice 4x6s of some of their guys, and a card of Lindor I've been holding onto since ST!

Okay... so one of the weirdest returns I've ever received came in today. I couldn't figure out who the hell it was from, as this whole year I've been putting initials in the top left corner to help me. It was postmarked from Florida, and the stamp was dated 2011!!!

Long story short, it was from Mr. Carl Pavano that I sent to in February of 2012

I'm not sure wtf happened here, maybe he was just sitting on his mail for the time since or something. This was one of the first ttms I ever sent out, before I sent prepped cards but hey I'll take a somewhat faded Pavano on a 2005 topps

I'm not adding it to my list because it wasn't from this season, but it comes close to a record for me at 527 days including holidays and sundays.

Other long ones for me include 2x Mark Bellhorn cards I sent out in 2009 that came back in 2012 and a Stephen Colbert LOR that I sent in June of 2011 that was fulfilled in October of 2012.

I sent it to the Ballpark in Arlington I'm pretty sure, I sent it early in June too.

CORRECTION: I think I sent to the PO box

Got back Oswaldo Arcia today, 60 days since I sent to to Target Field! I'm happy to get this back, I've seen some other successes from him lately, it's great to see this come even after he was optioned down to AAA.

A slightly dirty toploader, but the card itself looks fine. i had to wipe it down to get the finger prints off it when it came back!

Thank you! If I'm fortunate, maybe I can get like 4 of them before this season ends! I just gotta pray Heathcott and Austin don't get promoted.

Got three IP tonight in New Britain, two on cards and one on a 4x6.

Lindor, Rodriguez, and Ramirez
I brought a 4x6 also of Urshela but I missed him as he walked by and I was putting the other photo away. I think I'll send it to him ttm. It was a little weird getting Ramirez, I had the photo of him with me although he is technically hurt. I didn't think he would be with the team since he didn't play, but people said he was there anyway. I handed who I'm assuming was Ramirez the pic, and he looked at it a little weirdly before he signed. Unfortunately he signed across the face... so i didn't feel like posting a picture of it. I just hope I didn't get the wrong guy

Got my Justin Masterson card back today, the card was really warped but i'm sure in a toploader it wouldn't be noticeable. 50 days from when I sent.

We must have sent around the same time. I don't have my list, but that seems like when I sent mine out as well. Just got mine today too

Got another ttm today, this time from Matt Davidson of the Reno Aces (D-Backs AAA), very quick turn around in about 9 days. Signature came out kind of funky, but I'll take it!
