Arrow Briscogun's TTM Thread

This thread will be for recording my TTM results. Sending out my first wave of 30 requests. Will update successes and results as they come in.

Starting out with minor league requests, 2014 Topps Pro Debut. Very excited to see what starts coming back!

Looking through my stack for the next wave as we speak...

Well, first return, first failure.

Sent to Gregory Polanco c/o the Pirates Charities along with a small donation. They just sent everything back to me in an envelope. Including my check. Time to figure out Plan B for that one. Maybe spring training?

Every "no" is just that much closer to a "yes", right?

Polanco is probably saving himself for his upcoming paid signing!

I don't think he ever even saw it, that turn time was instantaneous. Weird thing is they didn't use my return envelope, they addressed an official Pirates envelope to me and stuffed everything inside. It's like I offended them...?

Get. Out.

$35? Wow... Well, I guess that explains my envelope. Thanks for the heads up. Maybe I'll try to hit him up in ST 2015.

Yes it is!

With the holiday mail break over, back up to a 2 day streak again. 5 more in today:

T.J Chism signed in nice bold blue. Thanks, T.J.!


Michael Fulmer with his number inscribed. Thanks for the nice auto, Michael!


Jose Berrios with a nice auto right in the middle. Thank you, Jose!


Braden Shipley with a great bold blue auto! Thanks again, Mr. Shipley!


And my favorite of the day...

Mr. Courtney Hawkins! Very excited to see this since he recently went on the DL with a concussion. Here's to a quick recovery, Courtney! Thank you very much!

Have to love it you're going on a streak again. I think this week may have been my first ever perfect TTM week, save the July 4 break. Keep them coming. Getting prospects are fun, even though I don't do that many. Looking to send to Austin Meadows soon but not sure where his new address is for his team in the Gulf Coast League.

Right now he's on a rehab assignment for the Bristol Pirates:

Bristol Baseball, Inc.
Box 1434 Bristol, VA 24203

Maybe you can catch him there if you send ASAP? Good luck!

Current streak is alive and well! 2 more returns today:

Mr. James Baldwin, inscribed with the number 39, returned in 21 days! Thanks, James!


And Lou Trivino, returned in a lightning fast 7 days! Thanks, Mr. Trivino!


Both are awesome additions to the set! Great players and great signers, too!

Thanks for looking!
