I don't know if he's a good signer or not, but I sent to him anyway.

Best of luck. It seems like he's good in person, but I have no means of getting to him that way. So the mail would be my only chance.

Yep. He's playing tomorrow 45 minutes from me tomorrow (south bend). I would go to the game if I didn't have a planned family vacation

South Bend isn't terribly far from where I'm from. Have fun on your vacation though and you may get him some other time.

I have a membership at sportscollectors.net and he hasn't had a successful return notated there since April, but he's running at about a 75% successful return rate overall. It looks like a bunch of those may be from a home address in the off-season, though.

PM me if you'd like more info...

I've been to a few Dayton vs. Lake County games and Frazier is sort of hit or miss... I've had him sign as many as four at once and other times he won't sign at all. I think the key is to catch him on the right day.

Same with a lot of players. Need to catch them the day after they hit a home run!

One of the better Hedges signature I've seen.

It's always fun seeing what other people get on forums like these, but it's especially fun when someone is chasing down a project. So I hope you achieve your goal and hopefully Monday advances that.

Thank You, briscogun.

Yeah. Achieving a set signed through TTM and IP is so much fun. Now I need to get some stamps to send to Eddie Butler, Kyle Zimmer, and Garin Cechinni.

Go for it. It shouldn't be too hard. Though it can be time consuming and costly to get a set signed TTM and IP, but very worth it. I've been working on one for the past eight years and some of the memories I've had collecting it I'll always cherish.

Yeah. It has put a little burn in the wallet but, some recent Ebay sales has help covered that

That's good. Never sold anything on there and hope I won't have to. As long as you're doing alright, can't really ask for too much more.

Any particular reason for it? The design? The players? I've noticed some of the sets I have worked more on just fell into my lap. So maybe you didn't plan on this but just decided to go for it.

Well, it is the Top 100 Prospects of the MLB. The design looks really cool, and it looks even better once they are signed

That rings true for just about every card out there, if you ask me, but also the list is due to be outdated. So I do wonder if you'll stick with it even when the new list comes out. It would be very sweet if you completed the whole thing before next year's edition is released.

That's my goal. But not likely. I'll give it a try

Do you plan on trying next year's Top 100 as well? Or am I thinking too far ahead for you? If so, sorry. Prospects can be fun to get, but I know I've gotten some who didn't pan out or do much in the big leagues. I remember getting Bear Bay way back in the day in 2006 and he didn't make a terrible amount of impact in his career. I also remember before Dylan Bundy, Archie Bradley, Taijuan Walker, Noah Syndergaard, there was Kyle Drabek and so far his career hasn't been what many thought it could be and I got him TTM as well. There's still time for him. Hopefully not only do you get your set signed but a majority of the players you get have productive careers too.
