Default My Hockey TTM signed cards

Here are all my results in the past 3 years TTM. All hockey. I like to do the O-Pee-Chee cards because they hold an autograph the best and have a huge assortment of players. I have recently gone with the Heroes and Prospects cards to get some of the younger guys in the OHL, AHL, WHL, and the QMJHL. With these cards, however, I had to take an eraser to the glossy front of the card so it can hold a sig. I have gotten about 80 to 85% of the cards I sent out. I only do one card, a nice and courteous note, and a self addressed stamped envelope. I always send a card in a toploader for protection through the mail. My comprehensive list is:

Thats all for my hockey collection so far. I have found that hockey players sign the most and usually always get a response back. I have a small baseball and very little football collection, however I dont send to many out for these because I find I dont get as close to as much responses as I do from hockey players.

Best response- Mike Ribeiro (Send back a letter thanking more for following him and his team and gracious for the autograph request). Also, Steve Mason and Mark Streit made personalizations.

Never heard from- I dont ever bother sending any to Crosby, Ovechkin, Malkin.....but Kovalchuk, Lecavalier, P. Kane, Stamkos are some I sent a couple times and never received. I have noticed that the Devils, Capitals, and Coyotes dont sign by mail...I have yet to receive one from any players on these teams. The Flyers sometimes will send back pre-printed signed photos instead.

I will have these all up on photobucket soon so you get a glimpse of them if you'd like.

Thanks for the info! My son and I have a few of these on the go - we have found that the Montreal Canadiens players, even retired ones, are awesome about signing! Our M.O. has been to buy cheapo cards of retired players who are working in front offices of current teams and sending to the team; the return rate on these has been >40%. Current players not so much, we've found. It was a great way to get my son motivated to do some writing - I'll try to post our list when work slows down a bit in a couple of months.

I was going to start writing to former players in certain teams front offices but I didnt think that it would be that successful. Greater than 40% isnt too bad though. I have found that the success rate to the Canadian teams (I'm from Connecticut, USA) is a little better but it costs me $1.50 to send these cards (75 cents to and from). So I dont send too many there because of the costs. Yeah, I'd be interested to see your list!
