3 IP successes in the last week:
Jesse Crain, signing at Lunds a week ago


Carl Pavano at Sports Authority on Friday. Waited 1 1/2 hours, one of the last ten people, they cut off the line because he had to get to a meeting

Twins game today, bat giveaway, just missed Mijares and Guerrier, but got Pavano again

2 RTS's today that were short postage, I guess it's too much to send 2 cards with toploaders, index card, and folded SASE, going back out tomorrow with an extra stamp

skip the toploaders - saves on postage and makes it easier for the person to sign and return. I've seen some posts on here where the person will sign the toploader etc.

I don't want them to get too damaged though

Believe it or not, I have only had 1 card damaged and I send them all out without toploaders. I have had 2 cards that were damaged in toploaders (the card slid halfway out and then got creased. I also have had 2 toploaders signed on the toploader... soon as the 2nd one happened I stopped sending them in toploaders. Also, the USPS machine rollers can bend the toploaders and they can get smashed and caught. The card itself can easily bend through the rollers without any damage. Just my .02 hope that they start rolling in for you in mint condition

2 successes back today

Brian Duensing c/o Twins- 1/1, 7 days, personalized. He's done great this year, shutout last game, pitching tonight



Jon Rauch c/o Twins- 1/1, 7 days. Must have been going quick, auto left a few marks on sleeve, smeared a tiny bit, but great auto

Don't send in toploaders. It's like flushing 2 stamps down the toilet every time. Instead, I put two index cards in between them. Not too heavy or thick, but just enough so it adds a little protection.

That's what I'll do next time. And it gives you a chance to get 2 extra autos if the player signs the index cards

One success back, Koji Uehara. But he signed the penny sleeve . Now I've had about everything, RTS, signed sleeve, extra cards, personalization. But now I'm done using sleeves and toploaders, not sure if I'll send back to him or not.

In all honesty, I keep the cost even lower by using business size envelopes, folding the SASE in three and placing the card inside. It's done a great job of protecting the card to this point.

One success today

Pat Neshek c/o Rochester, 2/2 16 days. 1 of the autos is perfect, the other one smeared pretty bad, I'd take a picture if I knew where my camera went

I gotta tell you, I love the look of that Neshek with the gold border and the red ink.

Thanks I brought a green sharpie too, couldn't find a black one . Was going to try to get Pavano to sign the Twins Franchise History Topps card and get a few more to sign that one, but he just kept running sprints
