Nice! I sent to Kershaw yesterday as well. I'm not expecting them back until later in the year, but figured I should get them out. Also sent Jordan Zimmermann yesterday. I'm going to wait until closer to the regular season for the rest and send to the stadiums. Good luck with the 200!! I'm waiting on number 1!

Here are the pictures of my Kaminsky and Unser successes. Kaminsky was a quick turnaround and is a great signer. The other is Al Unser Sr. I know racing gets no love on here but he is a legend in Indy Car and I'm happy to add him to my racing PC. One of the Unser cards got smeared he probably put it in the envelope to quickly before it dried. He also included a generic letter and a brochure for his museum in New Mexico. Nice to get two quick returns.

Trevor Bayne
Michael Mcdowell

Where did you send your Lawrence Taylor? I've had two different successes from him c/o Pro Football Hall of Fame. Most recent has been around a year ago so I don't know if he stopped signing or what.

Oh my gosh I've made 3 threads! Wow! I'm a spammer. Atleast I didn't make 9 threads in the TTM section mostly about the same thing. What happened to your 2014 and beyond thread? It didn't go 2014 and beyond then did it? But once again nice try at firing shots, it didn't work and you're just grasping for straws now carry on

I found a few more
RelicCollector's 2014 and Beyond NFL TTM Thread
My Quest To Get The 2014 Bowman Baseball Top 100 Inserts Signed

That's right you've made NINE threads three times the amount of threads I've made and I didn't even count all of your threads asking for trades/help on your Top 100 set. If you're going to leave a comment like that expect these results. Why'd you leave the comment? Because your were a little butthurt because of the fact that I asked you to stop making so many threads and to actually BUMP your threads instead of making a new one all the time?

Got a somewhat success from former Baltimore Oriole Fred Lynn. Sent back my 1988 Donruss card unsigned but send a signed index card. I don't collect and quite frankly can't stand index cards, I don't get them signed and don't collect them. A little strange he would go out of his way to sign an index card but would not sign my trading card. Oh well Thanks Mr. Lynn, I guess.

If I recall correctly, Fred Lynn won't sign anything baseball related. Not photos, cards, etc. Someone sent him a non-baseball photo a while back, and he signed it.

Looks like he's been doing the blue index card thing for a while when I checked SCF. A few people got cards back here and there but everyone is getting those dang index cards.

if you can get in contact with him he'll probably sign for a donation to the FACE foundation he's involved in.

can't find the email but a few years back i contacted him through his website one time asking for permission to send a card to him. forgot to send it to him though lol

Got a NASCAR Sucsess from driver of the #47 Chevy A.J. Allmendinger. He signed 1/1 for my American Wheels set in 14 days. Signed in black sharpie but he's in a dark blue fire suit in the picture so it doesn't show up well unless it's under a light. Happy to have a Sucsess though.

And another piece of NASCAR related news, I'm going graphing in Martinsville tommorrow and im hoping to hit a few autograph sessions. Hopefully I can get into the Brad Kesolowski signing as he's a tough one to get. I'll have a recap tommorrow after the race.

I know NASCAR gets no love here, but I'm just happy to be getting successes.

I got this from him a year or 2 ago, any interest? I would be willing to work something out, I don't really collect cards but let me know what you think.

I've seen some successes with Fred Lynn signing cards with a donation. Probably like $20-$30. I wonder why he only signs an index card and not the card you send. I haven't bothered since it wouldn't really go with the rest of my signed cards. I wonder if you sent your own index card if he'd sign it or sign his own blue one.

Came up empty handed at the NASCAR race but still saw a great race. TTM wise I got a minor success a 1/1 from Former Bengal Tim Krumbie. Signed in black sharpie and it took 16 days.

Added one more to the tally last night,
An IP success and a rather unique one that will stay in my PC for life. So, I have season tickets to my local universities college basketball games who has an alumni who plays for the Harlem Globetrotters. Corey "Thunder" Law (If the name sounds familiar he made the world's longest basketball shot) was that guy. So the University gave free tickets by invite only to all of their season ticket holders and post game I was able to go down and get Thunder's autograph. Unique success for me, as I watched this guy play all throughout college and was able to get him IP

Signed 1/1 on my ticket personalized


Now pictures of my last 2 successes.

Tim Krumbie


A.J. Allmendinger

It's a start!
