Default PistolPete7's TTM Thread

Hey guys, TTM'ing is my favorite part of our hobby and I figured I would start a thread to share my successes and failures. I'll show some autographs I've gotten in the past. Everything is in perfect shape but my scanner isn't the best. I actually got the Joe Panik today. It looks great. These range from right now to a couple of years ago. Lmk what you think! - Pete



Index cards: Fred Lynn and Rollie Fingers, respectively. There is no damage on the Fingers autograph, just the scanner.

Very nice! I wish I had some cards of Meadows when I sent to him. Oh well, I'm still satisfied with 2 4x6 photos of him.

Thanks! And yeah I think photos are just as good, but he seems like a good signer I don't think he'll just stop signing TTM but we'll see.

I sent to his foundation while he was injured a couple years ago. I don't think he signs right now but it doesn't hurt to try.

That is AWESOME. I'm glad to see it's authentic, and that auto on the A&G looks great. I didn't have a card of Yogi at the time but I'm content to have the index card signed. Nice card!

The index card is great! Endless options. Get it authenticate then may it or something. Only cost me like $15 to authenticate it and $15 for the Musial from the same set.

That Musial looks amazing too. I tried to send to him twice when he was signing, roughly around the same time Yogi was signing. Got an unsigned postcard back both times. But I think your Yogi and Musial autos show why TTM autos are so fun to collect, I'd much rather get those through the mail and get them ceritified/graded than buy an auto of them on ebay or pull one from a box.

Yeah they look amazing encapsulated. I agree that was the prime of my short ttm career. I figured out that with Musial you had to either send an oversized envelop so he could include one of his hall of fame signed cards or write on your regular envelope that donation is enclosed. He was super hard to get for a while but then he started signing like crazy. Did you get trout ttm?

No, I got Trout before a game at Fenway 3 weeks ago. Was gonna write to him when he was a prospect but I didn't have a card so that makes up for it. Looks great in person I love it

I've gotten two returns back recently just haven't had the chance to update my thread, here they are: Johnny Bucyk 2/2, returned 7/3/13 and JJ Watt 1/1, returned 7/5/13. Awesome!



I also picked up a few cards on COMC, I've sent out two requests and I have about five more I'll try to get out within the week. Thanks for looking!

Finally got around to scanning the returns I've gotten back in the last couple of months. TTM'ing has always been my favorite part of the hobby and I'm really glad to have received a couple of my favorite autographs recently. Thanks for looking!



Requested '04 WS Champs on the Timlin and he signed it! Also, the McCullers didn't come out perfect but just to know he took the time to read my letter/sign the card is enough for me. I love it!



Requested '04 WS Champs on the Mueller as well and it came out amazing! Definitely one of my favorite autographs, he was a stud back in the day for the Sox. And lastly, I received Appel back today care of Quad Cities. Came out perfect!

Haven't updated this thread in a very long time. I'm still TTM'ing, just havent gotten a ton of successes recently. I sent out a lot of stuff in the beginning of December so I'm hoping to see a lot more returns. I got an awesome return today from a running back with a lot of potential. He had a great year this year when given the chance. The auto looks unreal on the card. It is a 2009 Topps Platinum White Refractor /499 of Rashad Jennings!
