I haven't shared anything in a while and part of that is because I haven't gotten anything in a while. Had a few pleasant surprises though!

Dale Ellis took 99 days


And a new favorite....

Mario Williams took an astounding 361 days!

Makes me sad that I worked with some people to get this part of the forum going but haven't had much to report recent. ;( boooo Hopefully I have some good news soon! Anybody interested in seeing/hearing about any stuff that I paid for? I can get some of those scans up!

This is an autograph that I never shared, but I got in person back on December 7th, 2010. I got in in-person from the gentleman that runs the dog boutique in our local mall. John McCurdy was a 1st round draft pick in the 2002 draft by the Oakland A’s. Actually, he was one of four (not including the supplementals), coming in the same class as Nick Swisher and Joe Blanton. Sadly, he never made it to the majors, but that’s okay.

Here's another TTM that I Never shared! This one was actually gotten for me by a co-worker (who I turned on to TTMing)



Virgil Trucks, as he wrote, was a two-time all-star, plus a world series champion. However, he's most notably known for pitching two no-hitters in one season, 1952, despite going 5-19 that year.

Here's a success from Saturday that I never posted. I sent one, he sent back mine and one of his own. Mr. Bobby Shantz, 1952 AL MVP.

Actually looking at the other one I think he might have intentionally made it like the one of the card and on the other signed it how he's signing now.

Mr. Joe Astroth came in the mail today. He was so nice that he put a return address label on the envelope for me.

Got another 'oldie, but a goodie' today. Actually, signed on the oldest card I own.

If you get a chance, you should read this snippet and his book. It's very good.

Nice read on this thread. Stories like these are starting to get me interested in TTM's.

I'll be honest, the TTMing has made me learn SO much more about the history of the sports...I've been sending off to guys that I 'didnt know' and when I get back from them, I'm taking the time to dig in and learn more about them. There really are some astounding stories out there.

So, I've been doing this for a while now, but never posted over here. Why don't I just start with my most recent stuff?

I recieved this one today. 17 Days



Now these two, I received yesterday. In 16 days. I love this. While (for now) I do TTMs for my own enjoyment, part of me is doing it for my 8 month old daughter (and baby #2 on the way). I want to be able to pass this collection of true autographs down to them when I get older. I include this in my letters...and Mr Russell just proved to me that someone actually read my note. All I could do was smile when I opened it. Lilly got her first autograph.



If anyone wants to see any of my more recent stuff, just let me know. Otherwise I'll just continue with what I receive from this point forward.
