Greg Holland - 2/3 - 119 days

Sent these two and a Topps Mini, he kept the mini and toploader, not complaining, though. The mini was my least favorite and these weren't damaged on the way back.

I plan on sending to Krukow soon. May have to try Honeycutt. I guess Holland is a good signer. Nice job.

Honey has been one of my fastest returns, and Krukow wasn't slow, either. You should get those back quickly. Good luck!

And thanks for the kind words!

Another weird, lackluster return.

Bruce Bochy - 1/2 - 36 days

Sent a Heritage base and ROMLB. Included a LOR where I mentioned how much I'd appreciate it if he signed on the sweet spot and welcomed personalization.

Only thing that came back was the ball. No letter, pen, card, toploader, anything, etc.

And he signed my ball in the weirdest spot possible.



I appreciate him taking the time to sign for me, though. Just odd to keep the card and sign there. Oh, well!

To get a ROMLB signed from perhaps a future HOF manager, even if not perfect, that is a wonderful success. I understand if you wanted a different spot or if he kept your card, but that's still terrific and I would take a success like that any day.

Oh, I don't wanna seem ungrateful! I'm very thankful for it! I just wonder if he didn't read the LOR or something.

More curious as they why it happened more than the fact that it did.

Very happy, nonetheless!

That's good. It just happens, I suppose. Some only sign one and return others unsigned. Others keep stuff, but you never know.

Exactly. I'd love to know what teams do with all the letters from ST. Or what players do with the stuff they keep. I'm just weird like that, I suppose.

They may not read the letters and only sign. Or the stuff they keep they may instead send to someone else.

Julio Urias - 2/2 - 11 days

Sent him a card and a baseball, got both back incredibly quickly. Thanks, Julio.

That being said, he didn't include the toploader on the way back, so there was a base card with a baseball, and the ball won. Just a few dings/creases, but still in one piece. And the ball is probably the best I've ever had come back. Beautiful and bold signature, number inscription. So great!

Incredible success. Get him whiles he's young. Kid has a chance to be in the MLB at 19-20. Just noticed his right eye on the card lol... (not being racist)

Nice. Glad to see he's still signing a lot even though the hype is definitely building!

Umm he's from Mexico and I believe he had a tumor removed from that eye so that's why it droops

Yup, had a tumor removed when he was a baby. Teams saw it and shyed away from signing him because they worried about his vision. Dodgers saw him in Mexico (on the same trip that netted them Puig, no less) at 15 and believed in him. Safe to say it's paying off!

Good job with this one. I've seen a lot of people get him back. Congrats on this one and good for him for signing both.

Nice! Hopefully this means I get mine back in the next couple of days

Tom Koehler - 2/2 - somewhere between 13-21 days.

Was on vacation, so I'm unsure of the exact return date. Absolutely love how these came out.

I'd post picture, but the inscription is R-Rated. Don't wanna get in trouble.


Could you please let me know what address you used for Danny McBride?

I would love to send a baseball to him.

Also if it is not to much trouble could you let me know the Bob Costas address you used? Again want to send a baseball to him. I found a address on another site, but hasnt shown any recent successes for a few years.
