Default 2012 Topps 991 TTM/Ip Autographs

101 List Updated 03/13/14

Hello all! I am going to try and do the impossible get all 991 cards from 2012 Topps (Series 1, 2 and Update) signed either IP, TTM, trades, 50/50's or purchasing out right. I know this will never be completed but I thought it would be a fun on going project.

Here are some notes, plans and thoughts I have for myself.

- I already have 5 signed! Woo! .005%!
- Mickey Mantle is card #7, obviously can not get that one signed so if I ever get to 50% I will buy a PSA certified Mantle Autograph and make my own cut version!
- I will be sending out TTM's as much as I can for as long as I can
- I will be looking for help via 50/50's so if you read this and think you can help, please contact me! (I already have one out there that I am hopeful to get ~5 returns from)
- I have two AAA stadiums that I can visit on a frequent basis to get anyone who might be down there or coming through on random rehab assignments.
- I have access to a lot of the current Cleveland Indians Roster come Sept 8th so I hope to add 15 to 20 on that date or before.
- I will plan to pay for signings of any players that offer them in (literally) the next 20 years
- I need to make a spreadsheet of all the players from all three sets and put them in order to make finding a card or cards easier.
- I am insane, this I know.
- I will try and keep this thread updates and a total count in my sig for as long as I am on this site.
- If you have a 2012 Topps card signed available ft/fs don't hesitate to contact me!


I guess that is all for now, going to work on a master checklist/spreadsheet now!

Thanks for the support,

Jaycob

Please be careful with that. I'd hate to see you mess up and ruin an authentic auto of one of the most iconic players of all-time. I'm sure you'll be fine, though.

Good luck!

Awesome idea!! Even though you won't get all of them it will be fun to see how far you get into the triple digits. Check out my thread, I have probably gotten 30+!

Uhhhh yeah don't do the cut signature. Just save his auto, I think we would all agree that it'd be ok if you don't have mantles sig in the set. He he

Have 15 more TTM's out and about with 10 more being packaged up today...

Have ~ 13 Autos that people already have signed for me just need to get them in my possesion (Both have other cards and games to go to so may not see them for awhile)

Going to try and go to the Indians - Blue Jays game tomorrow and snag some IP, anyone know if the Blue Jays are good signers? Better away or home? Thanks!

Really like the set, with 991 cards there should be plenty of players to send to.

Thanks! I've been sending out a ton, probably around 10 per day for a month or so, sometimes more. I got back 13 returns in a day once!! You'll have some mail days with multiples soon, I bet.
