I have to say IP. Meeting the person adds to the fun. Not that TTM isn't fun at all, it certainly is, and many times TTM is cheaper than IP, but also IP can be more personal and those you meet IP can really put a smile on your face depending on the kind of person they are and you can have stories to tell to others in the hobby.

Excellent poll here.

In person no doubt. When asking some of the guys to sign here in the AZL League they are so glad to do it and often ask if i have anything else.

And getting to meet your PC player(s) is awesome as well!

Even though I obtain 90% TTM..........hands down, nothing beats a IP experience.

I am curious though, four people voted for TTM. What is it about that that makes it more fun for them? Just wondering.

IP is fun for the personal experience.

TTM is fun for the "surprise" of what you get in the mailbox.

I love em both, but i'm gonna have to say IP

I voted TTM.

I never get out to Minor League games and there aren't many signings around here.

When I do go to games I just feel awkward about asking for autographs because I can never identify players. I may try and save up for some ROMLB's and get a few guys at a Clippers game soon.

Don't feel so bad. I can't really recognize anybody either when I try to graph IP at games too and I don't do Minor League stuff because there's nothing within my relative proximity.

TTM is awesome for players I don't have access to see and can't get otherwise
Meanwhile if you had the same player and gave me the choice IP or TTM I'd pick IP 10 times out of 10 the experience the personal interaction all make it better IMO.
I will be out of town from July 19th- August 1st with limited Internet access if you don't get an immediate response you're not being ignored I just can't get with you at that moment in time.

I haven't done an ip event outside of one time and it ruined the event for me. I don't have a ton of access to pro sporting events or concerts anymore so if I attend an event like that I am usually traveling there and with friends or family. Like baseball games I love sitting and watching the games drinking a couple beers. Before the game I like to hit up a local bar with friends and after we are usually just trying to get the heck out of dodge. College football games especially at autzen stadium there is almost no interaction with the players and if there was it would be hell fighting the crowd. If I lived in a town like Boise or Stockton where there's not much else going on and I could pop into the game by myself then i probably would try and obtain some autographs. Ttm for me because it's my only option.
