The 3rd and final response for 6/7/14. Another NFL coaching great with ties to the Chiefs. He is most recognized as the Head Coach of the Buccaneers and winning a Super Bowl with the Colts.

Coach Tony Dungy

KC Secondary Coach 1989-1991
Head Coach Bucs 1996-'01
Head Coach Colts 2002-'08
Won SB as player with the Steelers
Won SB as a Coach with the Colts
Only player in NFL history to throw and interception and have an interception in the same game. Was emergency 3rd string qb, but played safety for the steelers.

Coach Dungy beautifully signed, and personalized my photo. Inscribed SB XLI champs as well as a bible verse. I had sent a questionnaire, but it was returned unsigned. Thrilled to get a class act like Coach Dungy back! Thank You Coach Dungy!!

The 2nd TTM for 6/9/14 is and HOF QB:

Sonny Jurgensen

Eagles 1957-'63
Washington Redskins 1964-74
5x Pro Bowler
2x All-Pro
1960 NFL Championship Team
5x NFL leader in Passing Yards
2x NFL leader in TD passes

Great, great return in just 7 days. I was suprised I go this back, yet so quickly. Inscribed with HOF 83. Thank You Mr. Jurgensen!!

For those considering writing Mr. Jurgensen and use the TTM manager on SCF, Please note his name is spelled wrong there. It is -sen not -son. I wonder if that is why there are so many failures.

I am really excited, and really bummed about this next one. My 2nd response for 6/12/14

Paul Hornung

Notre Dame/Green Bay Packer Great
College Football Hall of Fame
Pro Football Hall of Fame
1956 Heisman Trophy Winner
2x Pro Bowler
3x All Pro
4x NFL Champion
Super Bowl I Championship team
1961 NFL MVP

I was really thrilled to get this back, and in just 10 days! I sent it without a donation. It is inscribed with what looks like "1956 Ho" I assume it is referencing his Heisman Year. Sadly despite my chipboard this my first damaged photo . Straight on it looks ok. I did my best to take a shot of my crease in the second photo. Regardless, I am very pleased to get this back from such an All-time great! Thank You Mr. Hornung!!

I was concerned I wouldnt get anything back this week. I received one TTM back today 6/20/14. Its another great add for my Chiefs Hall of Honor:

Bill Krisher

All American Guard at OU 1956-'57
Pittsburgh Steeler 1958
Dallas Texan 1960-'61
2x All-Star with Texans
1x All-Pro

Mr. Krisher signed the 5x7 and thoughtfully answered my questionnaire. He also added two 4x6's of his own!

One of the questions I asked is why his promising career came to and end after 2 All-Star games. His reponse, "I wanted to retire to go full time in ministry with the "FCA" home office in KC. Helped move the Dallas Texans to KC in 1962".

It was certainly a suprised to see the additional photos. I have one from his Oklahoma days and one as a Dallas Texan. Thank You Mr. Krisher!!

Been on vacation for the last week. When I picked up the held mail I had 3 TTM returns. The 1st TTM return for 6/30/14:

I received my LOR to sign a mini helmet back from one of my favorite KC defenders. One of the best safety's in Chiefs history next to Johnny Robinson....#20 Deron Cherry . I am really excited with this one. The quest to get a Deron Cherry signed mini helmet is how I ran across the world of TTM. It was my second attempt to get permission. Hope to get this mini in the mail tomorrow. Thank You Mr. Cherry!!

My 2nd TTM response for 6/30/14:

Another Husker great, and had a solid NFL career with the Rams and Seahawks...

Grant Wistrom

Consensus All-American DE '97, '98
Lombardi Award Winner 1997
3x 1st team All Big 12
2x Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year
3x NFC champ
1x Super Bowl Champ XXXIV

It is a little hard to read with the black sharpie, but he inscribed it with Go Big Red! and #98. I actually had a biology lab with him back in the day. Cool dude. Thanks Mr. Wistrom!

My 3rd and final response for 6/30/14 is an special return, and another great addition to my KC Hall of Honor:

Willie Mitchell

Kansas City Chiefs CB 1964-'70
2x AFL Champ '66, '69
Member of SB I team
1x Super Bowl Champ (IV)
1x All-AFL 2nd team in 1965

This was a really, really great return. I had to do some digging to find him. He signed my photo and personalized to me as well as answered my questionnaire. He went the extra mile and wrote me a very nice note thanking me for being a fan, he included an additional signed 8.5x11 photo that was printed on cardstock, and also an unsigned program from the Kansas City Hall of Fame weekend in 1994 when Jack Rudnay was inducted. He also returned my unused SASE. A phenomenal success. Thank you so much Mr. Mitchell!!

One TTM response for 7/1/14:

This is my first current player return, I had seen other success by a couple posters and I wanted in on the action. Not a Chiefs, but always wanting him on my fantasy football teams:

Antonio Brown

2x Pro Bowler
1st NFL player to have 5 receptions and 50 yards or more in every game of a season.
1st player to have 1000 yards receiving and return yards in a season.
1 of 3 players in NFL history to have 5 receptions or more in a season.

Mr. Brown signed my 5x7 for me. It had some smears below his name but was able to remove the smear/streaks. What a great player. Wish he was in KC. Have a great and healthy season Antonio. Thank you Mr. Brown!

I am a member at sportscollectors.net. To be a premium member is $15 a year, well worth it in my opinion. You can see the past 7 days successes as a basic member.

I also use the ttm manager at SCF. It is a great resource and free. It isnt as complete as the sportscollector database, but its a great start.

I also have done my own home work with writing some players by using google, white pages, all that jazz.

I'm doing about the exact same thing as you for addresses except for premium at sportscollectors.net... I was wondering how many addresses there are for football, and if it's worth it just for football.

Thanks, your collection is awesome.

Definitely worth it! Especially for me where the bulk of my dedication is to the Chiefs. Whats nice about sportscollectors is you can break the categories down to teams, or HOFers. You can see all the recent signings for a specific team.

As far as addresses. I am gonna say the ttm manager for football at SCF is maybe 15-20%, if that of total volume of addresses that sportscollectors has.

For me it has been priceless. My collection wouldnt be what it is without it. Thank you so much for the kind words.
