Biggest mailday to date!

Davey Lopes - 1/1 - 15 days
Rick Honeycutt - 3/3 - 15 days
Manny Mota - 3/3 - 15 days
Dustin Ackley - 3/3 - 14 days

Dodgers coaching edition!


Davey actually started to sign the sleeve I included. Glad he noticed and took it out. I guess I got 1.5 autos from him! Ha!


Here's the Ackley's and finished Lopes.

Absolutely huuuuuuuge return for me today. Wasn't expecting this back as I've never even heard of anyone sending to him, let alone a success.

I sent him a very nice LOR as I do with every TTM, only this time I added why this was special to me. I was in attendance for this game, and seeing this happen before the action started was one of my favorite non-baseball things I've ever seen at a baseball game.

Well, my letter must have worked. Got this today. He took the folder, and the letter, so the envelope was a little bit weak, but miraculously, it made it. He used a weird pen to sign them, and chose a weird spot to sign on the card, but I don't mind at all!

I just need to find a shot of Joe Kelly standing at attention after the anthem and have him sign it, now.....


Absolutley thrilled. Thank you so much. Mr. Van Slyke!

Coulda sworn I saw a few returns from him earlier this year. Looks like we missed out.

Tanner Scheppers - 1/1 - 35 days
Peter Bourjos - 1/1 - 33 days


More mail in today! Scheppers has a pretty weak auto!


Sent to Peter Bourjos again. Really wanted this a photo signed, but I didn't have the Photo when I sent my cards back in ST. I explained this in my letter and he was kind enough to sign. Even inscribed his numbers. Looks absolutely phenomenal.

Glad it's not just me, then! I legitimately thought he had slipped during signing it or something. I thought I had seen an auto of his and it was a lot different, but I guess not! :P

Chone Figgins - 1/2 - 36 days

Pretty odd return. Kept the 4x6 and the toploader, and signed it in the oddest place ever.... Dinged corner with no protection on the way back. Oh, well....

Got a pretty big return today. Wasn't expecting this one back, hadn't seen a return from the address I used in a while, and it looks like a home address, so I wasn't sure if he still lived there.

A quick return and Mr. Costas even added some extra tape to go along with the self-seal of the bubble mailer. Thanks, Bob!

Bob Costas - 1/1 - 19 days

Thanks. Even as a dodgers fan, I love Kruk and Kuip. Still waiting on my Krukows.
