Default MrOpinion's Successes!

Got my first success back of this year today (that was not Paul Posluzny).

I sent this one last season before I started tracking when I sent cards out and just got it today, so it was nice to come home to it. The entire upper left corner was ripped off of the envelope but the card still got here safe and sound!

And bend the envelopes.
And increase postage.
And lose your mail.
And let the elements get to your items.

I can go on and on and on about the PO.

Nice Barmes!

Wow nice Carrasco! That looks gorgeous. I just got back a Koji Uehara today but the USPS bent it in half... I still like it..
How are you keeping these TTM card autos?

I hate those stupid pager binders normally, but I think I might start one for these TTMs

Honestly, as of right now, I'm just putting them in a standard semi-rigid. I'm in the process of finishing my basement so that I have somewhere to display all of these when I get them back, along with all of my 8x10s, balls, etc.

Sorry for the dirty scanner!

Today I received a pair of autographed 2010 Topps from the Diamondbacks #2 prospect, Brandon Allen!

Got a TTM today that I wasn't expecting. I shipped this one out long before I started tracking, so I have no idea how long its been. Even moreso, this isn't the card I sent out. I know, because it wasn't rubbed down. Oh well, a return is a return! (it's a shame because he has a nice auto too)

An FYI (and a lot easier than rubbing glossy cards down) is just take a Magic Eraser to the surface of the card. It works great.

yeah, I know. Only thing is that this wasn't the card that I sent The one I sent was from 2008 Timeline (I think) heh I have a hunch that when he went on the DL, he opened them all, signed them all, and stuffed them all back in an envelope. heh Thanks though!

Wow. Has it really been since April that I posted something on this? Well, I got a nice semi-in-person today, but I want to get a scan in before I post it. I am loving this card. The baby came and the stuff is getting up on my basement walls, so I'm getting back into TTM now that I have time...and I have around 20-30 new requests out since last week. I'll post the card asap.

For anyone that is interested in looking at my entire collection of TTM and IP autos, I'm working on getting them on my website. Feel free to check them all out here:

Gallery

You don't have to go either, but I just thought people would enjoy it.

Thanks! I hope to get some more in there soon. I'm also going to be adding some of the in-person stuff that I have, like a bat signed by 8 different Dodgers, and a David Price signed jersey ;D

Today landed me more more TTMS:

1989 Score Jeff Musselman


1991 Topps Les Lancaster


I happen to think that Lancaster might have one of the coolest autos in my collection. I've added both cards to my gallery seen in my sig and I'm working on a post for my web page now. lol

Today netted me two more sucesses.

Mr. Billy Beane - 12 days


And this one has a little bit more story...


In browsing through the Harvey Miesman list for this year, I came across Mr. Bedell...he caught my eye because he only lived 3 streets away from me! I just had to send off a card to him. I picked up a '61 RC card of his from COMC and mailed it off to him and he sent back my card auto'd, plus one of his own, both within a penny sleeve. Classy guy. In doing a little more research, his story is a little bit more fun that you'd expect. The man had three career RBI to his name. Two in 1961 for the Milwaukee Braves and one in 1968 for the Philadelphia Phillies... The one in '61 was a sac fly. What makes it so special is that that one RBI broke up Don Drysdale's scoreless inning streak at 58 2/3 innings. Not a bad piece of trivia, eh? ;D
