Default Rich_M's TTM thread

I've been lurking on this section for quite some time, but never got around to making my own thread until now.

I first started sending TTM requests in 2002 when I started a Fleer Tradition baseball project as well as sending to select football and hockey guys. After doing that for a little over a year, I took a hiatus until 2011 when I started a 2011 Topps Heritage baseball project as well as a Topps rookie card project.

I've been sending out a request to everyone with a Topps rookie card since then (from 2011-2014) and also watched a few sites to see who was signing and just sent random 2013 Topps out. I then added a 1989 Topps project and 1991 Upper Deck side project, lol.

So I have all kinds of projects going and will probably never get close to completing any of them, but I'm having fun. As of today, I have sent out 130 requests to spring training this year and hope to update each day I receive something.

Sent out a ton of spring training requests I see . Nice returns. Even though the success rate isn't super high so far, how many hobby boxes could you spend $145 on and get 41 autos? . Nice thread. Enjoy seeing them
