that really sucks man! seeing how that same thing happened to me for Pierzynski on monday, i'm not surprised. i am surprised though that it hasn't happened for martin perez yet... he seemed good about his mail this year, but he never got back to me. those are the only rangers i sent to this year (not including the successes i had for Lewis and Harrison) aside from Sardinas and Odor in AA, both of whom never got back to me and likely never will.

UHH again with the playoffs, Oakland is out. Pittsburgh is out.

Of all the teams I'm rooting for, only Los Angeles is still standing. Really don't want to see Detroit and Cardinals... dammit

I was really hoping for a Pirates-A's World Series. Now all that's left for me to do is root against the Dodgers

I found addy's for Mo Vaughn, Jeff Bagwell, Jorge Posada, Mike Mussina (different than the manager's listing, i think he moved), Mike Piazza, Rick Ankiel, and Carlos Delgado. The information on any of these guy's willingness to ttm is pretty undocumented, but Mo and Mussina did have a few a few years back. I figured this offseason I would shoot for retired guys, namely a bunch of my favourite players from when I was a kid. You never know eh? Here come the rts's xD
I REALLLLLLY wish Mo would sign via TTM.
He was my favorite player growing up and I would love to have an auto of his.
I have thought about taking a trip up to his trucking company to see if I could meet him, but haven't done so as of yet.

Good Luck!!

you too bro, in this case I prefer to think of the tuesday as being a "super tuesday" in regards to the backed up mail. not sure if it quite works like that though, mail does get processed but not delivered on sundays. not sure if it's the same for faux holidays like Columbus Day

Just sent a fan pack request email out to DC United, never sent a fp request before but I heard they're pretty good about sending autographs. Requested pretty much anybody (mentioned Marcelo Saragosa by name). We'll see what happens

ALSO:

Requested autograph photo in email from Alexa Vega (actress with bit part in Machete Kills). Technically I paid for the cost of the shipping by paying a wicked small amount, but then again it would be almost like me paying for the envelopes anyway.

No new successes today, but I cleaned up my original post A TON and I put it all into a google drive spreadsheet for easy access. There you will see pictures and clear details about my successes and sendouts/anticipated sendouts.

Finally got another success today, ugh a full week of nothing!

I sent an email request for the actress Alexa Vega on the 15th and paypalled her people $2 for a signed 5x7. Received it today, signed in black. 5 days, added to the docs.

I also realize I messed up some of the pictures in the doc, I'll fix that at some point.

two more successes today, email success from DC United soccer player Marcelo Saragosa (my second ever brazilian success :P ) and also from Cody Asche of the Phillies. Asche signed my 4x6 in about 40 days, while Saragosa was a team card from the team, 6 days

lol

he might not be the best, but i can't complain for the price of free

I was going to mention this earlier about the Asche, but since I sent that I stopped sending glossy pictures because all the sigs seem to come out sort of crappy. You might notice up close they sort of bubble like an unprepped card would, I blame the cheap CVS paper and the weird thing is I prepped all of the glossy photos except the Kournikova one (you can really tell it smudged). all of the photos (sans the Roth one) I sent to the Arizona Fall League I ordered online at Shutterfly. Very good site, I also printed all of my machete pictures there

I saw your success, it seems like the Angels have been the most reliable so far. I'm hoping the other teams at the same stadium will come through too (looking at you, cubs )

I'm shocked to get a return during the AFL season honestly, with their busy schedules at all. I'm anticipating the most returns right up at the end, fate permitting!
