Shawn Johnson
Ken Blackburn - Received back, signed on 9/20/10!
Jordin Sparks
Drew Brees
Tony Hawk
Dan Brown (in place of DaVinci)

for the revolving door you could try and get whoever is dating Kim Kardashian since that is pretty much a revolving door

I will be watching this post. I have heard all that Tony Hawk does is pre printed photos.

GOOD LUCK!! This will be a really cool set if you can complete it!

WOW, I am trying to do the same thing!! Maybe we can team up if we have doubles IP, or whatever. So far I have:

Matt LaPorta
Koji Uehara
Matt Carson
Drew Stubbs

and prob. a couple more, I have a pile of recent TTMs that have gotten back. It is helpful to check out others' threads to see who they've gotten back TTM...

Yep. I'm really hoping I can at least get 90% of it if not more.

Nice suggestion Dan! That's pretty much the only one I'm unsure about. I'm planning on trying to get Paul McCartney through a friend in the UK for the card of Lucy since she was named after a Beatles song.

Also, I am including a handwritten letter with each card explaining why I am requesting the autograph and that stuff.

Just FYI - Neither Paul McCartney nor Ringo Starr sign autographs through the mail anymore. But I'm sure there are other options available for that card that you can come up with.

Ok, thanks for the info Mike.

Yeah, I can find other options, I just thought McCartney would be cool to have for it.

what are you doing for Betelgeuse, isaac newton, king tut, Galileo, Gutenburg, Captain Nemo, Jules Verne, X-Rays, The Parthenon, and Area 51? You could come up with some pretty cool ideas for some of those, but X-Rays? and the Parthenon hahah could get messy

X-ray: I was thinking about finding an X-ray doctor and getting them to sign it or something.

I'm still working on the ideas for those.

I'm currently in my second year of school to become an XRay tech, does this count?

Got the Tony Hawk card back today with what looks like a preprint and a note saying that they can't accept items to be signed. Lame.

Sorry, I hadn't been on in 4 months or so.

I got the Jordin Sparks one back in January, and the Shawn Johnson one back a week or two ago.

Still waiting on Dan Brown, and I've pretty much given up hope on Drew Brees.

Dr. Robert Jarvik signs TTM ....He invented the artificial heart, and might be a good one to sign it

Default Jordin Sparks

Where did you send the Jordin Sparks? She is one that I have not gotten yet. Although I did send one somewhere, can't remember. Just so you know, I too am a collector of the Allen & Ginter autos. I collect mostly 2008 but have been sending all years out. I have gotten many of the obscure sports if you need help with addresses.

In addition, if you go to tradingcardcentral.com, there is a guy who goes by zedsls who is a huge ginter graph collector. He has an extensive collection if you want to check him out.

Thanks Tmoore. And I sent the Jordin Sparks to an address in NYC. I got it off one of the fanmail websites I think. (fanbiz or something similar to that)
