Default Lionsman81s Offcial TTM and IP Thread

So, I made a thread a couple months back but I was too lazy to update it and it sunk to the bottom and I do not feel like retrieving it. I have been sending out TTMs with reckless abandon lately so leave your comments, compliments, concerns, stories here in this thread and I will try to update it regularly. My Camera AND Scanner are both down ATM so I wont have pictures YET but they will come soon so just hang in there. I will openly share any address via PM to anybody who wants to know. I mostly use generic team addresses though.

Here is My Scoreboard follow throughout the season!

Hey all,
Big week of IP graphs, on Tuesday I attended the South Atlantic League All Star game and Saturday went to Knights/Mudhens game.

All Star Game:
So I ended up with 81 autographs total I got a lot of minor players on the All Star set of cards that they sold for the steep price of $16 but I got sets for both teams so it wasn't a terrible deal and for $5 extra I picked up a SAL all star set.

Here are the key players that I got
David Dahl 1/4 Only Signed my Platinum looks beautiful in Gold though
Ryan McMahon 1/1 I orderd a lot of his bowmans but of course a slow eBay shipper lead to me only getting a crappy All Star set card as opposed to a Bowman signed, Life goes on.
Corelle Prime 3/3 Signed 3 Chromes in gold looks great extremely talkative.
Victor Caratini 3/3 signed a All Star set card, Top Prospects card and a Rome All Star 8X10 Yean Carlos Gill wasn't there so I wasn't able to complete the whole 8x10 with all 3 signed, got him and Reyes
Reese McGuire 5/5 Signed 3 Bowmans, Top Prospects, All Star card
Gavin Ceccni 7/7 Great guy one of his teammates (forgot who) commented about how cool the Bowman Platinum cards where, I offered one and they laughed at me about it like "Why would he want Gavin's card" but he thanked me for offering it to his teammate. Signed 3 Platinums 2 Leaf RiZe Emergence, 1 SAL All Star Set, 1 SAL top prospect
Aaron Judge 1/1 Great guy talked for a long time with me shook my hand asked for my name signed one Bowman Paper in Gold.
Hunter Harvey 6/6 SAL top prospect, SAL All star 4 bowman papers
J.P. Crawford 4/4: Chill as expected laid back like the 1st 2 times I met him signed 2 Bowman Papers, Top prospect, All star set
Williams Astuido: 5/5 All Star Set, 3 Papers, 2 Chrome

If you have any questions about any players feel free to ask

Went to the Knights/Mudhens game Saturday last second I only had a few cards and had never graphed BB&T BallPark before so I left my cards at home big mistake everyone stopped and signed kicking myself when I realized I could've had Johnson on a card
Got the following autographs inside my program
Michah Johnson
Jordan Danks- Nicest guy ever knew the guy beside me talked with us and signed for literally 20 minutes hope he gets another shot with the White Sox.
Blake Tekotte 2/2 Program, Ticket pic with
Duane Heath
Some other guys who I forgot these are the notables.

Overall great week worth of graphing hoping to get out to some more games soon but I've been so busy lately, I want to go to Burlington next week to graph the Elizebethton Twins and Nick Gordon but not sure.
Thanks for the read.

Got Matt Stairs back 2/2 signed in black! Part if the envelope was ripped no idea if it was just a freak thing or if the mail man wanted a peek at my cards! But I got my cards safely and signed signed nicely in a small amount of time so it's all good!

Lots of luck to you. I know I've sent out a good eight requests or more a few times this year. You should get something good.

That's how this goes. Can have days, even weeks, of nothing. Then all of a sudden, they can't stop coming in.

Thank god!
I got a Sucsess today ending my agonizing cold streak. Ive seen requests come back for Cishek and Murphy in the last week but have yet to get anything in hand from those 2 players.
While it wasn't Zobrist, Cishek or Murphy (the 3 I want back the most) its a pretty nice consolation

Alex Meyer 1/1: the Twins Pitching prospect has been dominating AAA and is destined to have a great MLB career signed in black in 24 days Thanks Alex!

You and I both got successes today. Great job. I sent to Meyer about a week ago. So, I'm hoping for a return soon. Good work.

I didn't send a card. I drew a baseball on an index card in an effort to save money.

That's not really a good idea, a lot of players do NOT sign index cards of any kind IP or TTM. I don't know why but they don't sign them.
Good luck though.

Didn't know that. Thanks. It's always possible Meyer could sign it. Worth a shot.

Good luck in the ttm fantasy league! Send out to Charlie Joiner and Dan Fouts because they are HOFers, on your team, and always sign. If you need address help, I'd be willing to help!

My TTM drought has been ruthless though I have sent out a bunch of requests but as of late have opened my mailbox to nothing but junk mail and bills.

Anyways I have been in and out of town all summer so have not been able to IP graph as much as I would have wanted but tonight hopped in the car and headed out to the Greensboro Grasshoppers (Miami A) Vs. Delmarva Shorebirds (Orioles A) It was last second so all I had where cards I had gotten before the game as I did not have time to order any off ebay or COMC.

Orioles top prospect pitcher Hunter Harvey was not in uniform tonight due to the futures game but he sat behind home plate in Jeans and a T-Shirt and ran the radar gun and graphed pitching proformance 3 sections over from me, I saw multiple graphers go up to him and get him to sign though he didnt seem thrilled to be signing I just left him alone as I have 6 cards signed by him that I got at the SAL All Star Game and all I had with me was a Bowman refractor mini which I didnt care to get signed.

I printed out 3 Photos a Drew Dosch 8X10 ( I am a big fan of his) and 2 team sheets that are Panaromic views of the Orioles and Marlins Ballparks respectively.

I scored the following signatures on my Camden Yards Sheet
Noteables:

John Keller
Drew Dosch
Josh Hart
Dylan Rhehult- Fire Up Chips! Always good to see a Central Michigan grad doing well!

Drew Dosch 1/1 8X10

Cards:
Grasshoppers

Trevor Ging 1/1 (Strength Coach 14 Team set)
Juan Avila 7/7 (4 Bowman Papers 2 Refractors 14 Team Set)
Austin Dean 1/1 (14 Team Set)
Chad Wallach (14 Team Set)
Lance Johnson 2/2 (Former MLB Player now the roaming hitting instructor for the Marlins was there tonight got him a 1990 Upper Deck and a 1989 Topps)

Shorebirds
Chance Sisco 2/2 (13 Bowman Chrome)
John Keller 1/1 (13 Bowman Chrome)
Josh Hart 3/3 (2 13 Chrome 1 14 SAL Top Prospect)

Breakdown: 19 Cards 9 Photo Signatures 28 Total autographs not a bad night at all!
So thats all for me today!

So I took some pictures of my haul from 2 nights back with my phone so the pictures arent that great but I figured I would upload the pictures for the sake of sharing.



My Avila Haul all 7 of them.



Lance Johnson 2/2 couldnt have been a nicer guy his funniest line when I thanked him "I am an old fart I have nothing better to do"



Top Row from right : Austin Dean, Chad Wallach, Carlos Lopez Bottom 2 are Chance Sico



My Personal favorite this awesome Drew Dosch 8X10 signed in Gold Came out absolutely sick!


Thanks for the Look!
