Default oucats02 TTM Thread

Okay, so I thought I would start my own thread. Whereas I do not have a scanner, I won't be able to put up any pictures, but I can list successes. I just started doing TTM the first of the year and I think I have had some pretty good success. As of today, I have received back 141/257 envelopes totaling 388 cards returned signed. A few RTS, and only 1 refusal (Lou Piniella). I have listed all my successes in the overall thread, so those are there, but I thought I would start a new thread for who I am sending out tomorrow, and successes here on out. If I ever sack up and get a scanner, then I'll start to scan...

Here's who is going in the mail tomorrow morning:

Brett Oberholtzer
Eric Young Jr.
Joe Nathan
Dustin Ackley
Kevin Pillar
Kevin Correia
Daisuke Matsuzaka
Yonder Alonso
Scott Baker
Jesus Montero
Denard Span
Stuart Scott (ESPN)
Allen Craig
Nyjer Morgan
Joe Kelly
Clint Hurdle
Ted Power
Trevor Hoffman
Justin Smoak
John Farrell
Ryan Wheeler
Brandon McCarthy
Gary Matthews
Walt Weiss
David Holmberg
Matt Adams
Jedd Gyorko
Brad Ziegler
Yasmani Grandal
Scooter Gennett
Byron Buxton
Adam Eaton
Dennis Walling
Andy Ashby
Mike Cameron
Pete Incaviglia
Michael Brantley
Aubrey Huff

Here's to some success!!!

Happy reading....

I don't know why, but I like Oberholtzer. I'm curious to see how that ends up, if you get a return. What did you send him?

haha, it happens. I'm up to like 2 weeks now, no responses, and I have hundreds of (hopeful) returns pending since last year. Aside from one mailday near the end of March, I'm over a full month without any consistent ttms.

Don't worry, from my own experience you SHOULD definitely get:

Brett Oberholtzer*
Eric Young Jr.*
Joe Nathan
Dustin Ackley
Kevin Pillar
Nyjer Morgan*
Joe Kelly*
Jedd Gyorko
Brad Ziegler*
Scooter Gennett
Mike Cameron*

* haven't gotten those myself, but seem surefire enough.

I assume this is ben petrick who was diagnosed with parkinsons? He has an incredible story. I got the oppurtunity to coach against him while he was at glencoe high school in hillsboro oregon. Pretty amazing guy and i heard he is somehow related to steve ballmer. Dont know if thats true or not, just remember someone telling me that.

Correct, I wrote about the 60 minute piece he did a while back in my letter. It was all very interesting to me and spoke of that in the letter. Very excited to get this back!

I got Shipley TTM during spring training, but I don't think I've seen anyone else get him so YMMV.

Came home from school today and had 3/3 Kevin Correia waiting for me. 1 topps and 2 Heritage. Very happy with that!

I also attached pictures of my recent in person and TTM success.

Thanks for looking!

Got two returns today!

Billy McKinney 2/2 sent May 22nd
Casey Kotchman 1/1 sent May 22nd - badly smeared but oh well...

It looks like McKinney is taking after another Billy (Hamilton) and making his signature shorter... Great signer however! Very thankful!

I've also received some private messages about trades and what not. I'm always down for a trade, if you would like my list of cards, I will be more than happy to send it to you, it's too big to post on here...

Thanks!

Alright, lots to update here....

First off, I was out of town for 5 days and came back to quite a few envelopes. Very happy with these, hopefully get some more in this week.

Aubrey Huff 4/4
Daniel Corcino 2/2
Matt Davidson 2/2
Brooks Pounders 3/3

Now, I was out of town to play golf and visit a friend. Also took in an Akron Rubberducks game. Thank you to Rgeo13 and Lambeauleap for their help with the game. It was a GREAT success. I did very well.

First off, if you have not been to that stadium, it's very nice. Nobody's there and it's a great place to take in a ball game.

So here's the rundown and pictures

Got 1 Francisco Lindor - he only signs one. But my friend also got him on a ball for me.
8/8 Joey Wendle
2/2 Tyler Naquin
2/2 Ronny Rodriguez
2/2 Kevin Plawecki

I also won the stadium's 50/50 so it paid for the trip and then some! Also got a ball from the dugout - I collect a ball from every league I have seen, and this was my first eastern league game.

Thanks for reading!!!!
