Is there any way to get a helmet done? I'm trying to put together the Steelers' 2012 Draft Class, and need the 4 7th rounders. Is there a higher chance those players sign than a star? I can't risk having a fake on a helmet with other authentic auto's.

What do you write to someone who charges a fee?

I always hand write it. It means more to the player IMO.

Exactly, it shows you took the time to write to them and ask them personally. And it doesn't look like a generic letter

This reminds me I have to start sending TTM's again. Sent to Lasorda some months back but in a rare moment of stupidity (ok maybe not rare lol) I forgot to include a note

Pack your balls well.
If you are including a pen in the package, make sure to put it in a baggie.
Someone's pen either exploded or cap came off and he got blue ink all over his balls.

I don't know why I never did this; actually, I do.

I wrote Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen back in the mid-90s, and they broke my heart.

I will try to do this, but I am having trouble finding addresses. Google sucks. LOL

Awesome thread/forum.

Anyone had any luck mailing to minor league teams during the season? Thought about trying to send to the team stadium mailing address...

How do you send a Baseball? How many stamps do you need on the bubble mailer? I want to send a baseball but I do not know how to make the return?

RULE # 1....BE PATIENT....while some returns may come back within a week or 2....many, if not most, take months to be returned.

I have 2 questions.
1: How exactly do you send to other countries, what stamps go where?
2: Home Addresses, are they okay to use? where can I effectively find them?
Thanks!

Global stamps work to the country. Youre most likely going to have to include $$$ for postage back to you unless you can find the foreign postage somewhere....


private home addresses can be found on startiger.com, scf forum, or you can do your own research on sites such as zabasearch, mylife, or whitepages... good luck

Hope I didn't miss the answer to this! I was wondering do you try and protect your cards during transit, being a top loader or anything like that? Do you write do not bend on envelope? Or do you just send card or picture loose and hope for the best!
Thanks in advance!

Don't send in a toploader or a sleeve because sometimes the person will sign the toploader or sleeve. Writing DO NOT BEND is very important.
