Default New to the board and hobby!

Hey

I'm brand new to this board and hobby. I've been wanting to get in to TTM for awhile now, but have always been a bit hesitant. Any help or suggestions to make my collection grow?

Thanks

GreenMonster

There are quite a few people here that do TTM. Please do a thread search and start reading, you will quickly get some valuable tips from them.

Welcome to the board!

First of all, welcome to Blowout! Secondly, just skim through the current TTM threads here and you will get an idea on who to send to. Most of the players you send back and prospects and minor leaguers because they don't get as many requests as Bryce Harper and Miguel Cabrera.

Also, just read through this: How TTM Works Your One Stop for Getting Started

It's stickied at the top of the page, but sometimes they're overlooked. It should give you the general idea on how to send TTMs.

And, lastly, I recommend using this site to help you out: SCF Through The Mail Manager

It gives you addresses that you can send to, if the players signs or not, and how many he signs (if he does). Be aware of the success dates, though. Guys like Bryce Harper say, like, 90% success rate, but all of his successes were from when he was 17 and in the minors. Now, he won't sign TTM because he gets so many requests.

Good luck!
