I remember Stoyanovich well. It's pretty sad when a kicker is in a programs top five players of all time. lol

A good mailday again today...

Dick LeBeau (HOF) signed 3/3 (including and index card) in black sharpie. He personalized 2/3 and added "HOF 2010" on 2/3 as well. Nice looking signature.

Frank Gifford (HOF) signed 2/2 in black sharpie...very happy with this one. It is kind of funny...you can see where he signed one of my cards with a dying marker, and when it looked horrible, he signed over it with a newer sharpie! The other card looks great as well! Very nice!!

VERY HAPPY with today's mail. I had 2 successes roll in today...

Maury Buford from the Super Bowl XX Bears signed 2/2 with personalization in blue sharpie. (I am getting quite a few of this Bears team...I can't wait to get this one complete!)

and....

Dick Butkus (HOF) signed 2/2 in blue sharpie with personalization and "HOF 79" inscribed. I did send him a donation....but I figured he would sign 1 at best...VERY happy with this one back. Hopefully I will get Gale Sayers back soon!

Be careful with the Beckham-compare it to certified autos of him-I've heard rumors of fakes.

Today TTM brought Dwight Stephenson (HOF)- signed 1/2 (kept one card)....he signed in black sharpie.

Also today brought some GREAT in person success...

My wife and I made another voyage to see the Carolina Mudcats play the Jacksonville Suns. I wanted to get Michael Stanton before he is called up....and a few others. Well, Stanton was BY FAR the toughest minor league autograph I ever tried to obtain, but in the end (after several hours) he signed for 5 of us...all personalized. He signed 2 each for my wife and I...so we were happy, especially after he ignored us for most of the day (before/after batting practice...and other "walk-bys") There was a boy who was there a couple days ago and said he blew everyone off as well and would not pick up a pen. I guess we were lucky in the end to get it...I will scan pics later. We also got a team signed ball by most of the other Jacksonville players.

Other notes...

Andrew Miller signed 4/4 cards for us

Brandon Tripp signed 2/2 cards for us

Matt Dominguez signed 2/2

and as previously mentioned, Michael Stanton signed 4/4

Today brought Roy Jefferson...

He signed 3/2 (2 in blue sharpie, one in black). He smeared one badly (it looks like it got wet) and sent one of his own cards.

Another minor league game today....The wife and I went to see the Salem Red Sox play the Kinston Indians (High A ball). I had a bunch of cards of Salem's players and ended up getting a team signed ball with almost everyone and the following on cards:

Caleb Clay 2/2
Stolmy Pimentel 1/1
Brock Huntzinger 2/2
David Mailman 2/2
Tim Federowicz 4/4
Pete Hisey 3/3

Kinston Indians:

8 autos on a ball and...
Jordan Henry 1/1

Also through the mail today was AWESOME!!!!

Tom Waddle (one of my favorite Chicago Bears of all time) 3/3 signed

Gale Sayers (HOF) signed 1/1 with requested personalization and "HOF 77" with donation

Bob Griese (HOF) signed 1/1 nicely in black sharpie

Roger Craig signed 2/2 in blue sharpie

Bobby Doerr personalized and inscribed "HOF 86" for me, my sister, and nephew...very nice! 3/3

Tobi Stoner signed 2/2 in blue sharpie

A great day for autographs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

One success today...another player from the Super Bowl XX Bears...

Mike Hartenstine signed 1/1 in blue sharpie with personalization and "SB XX Champions" and his number "73" inscribed.

On a side note...I sent out 10 more today...but I think I am going to start slowing down TTM for the next couple months. I am focusing more on getting in person autos of the baseball prospects...I am trying to go to a minor league game every week or so and get a bunch of my cards signed. I think I am just going to start sending out as many as I get back for the next couple months (I still have well over 200 requests out) until I get motivated for another large mailing!
