Nice for all 3 of you! Still waiting over here though...

I've got a little bit of a different strategy this year after I wasted a TON of postage last Spring. I sent out about 30 requests and the rest are waiting to see who is actually signing this year. I had a much higher success rate with the stuff I sent late last Spring over the stuff I sent off in February.

I am thinking only about a dozen prospects and the rest are going to be big names for me this year. My percentages will go down, but I really do not want a definate from Ian Snell when I can get a 30% shot from an Allan Trammel instead.

02-21-2011, 04:32 PM
yeah i agree. i put alot of longshots on my list so that if anything even comes back, i know its going to be really cool, not players who i dont like but always sign.

metsmagic18
02-21-2011, 07:15 PM
Interesting approach... It's my first season so I'm going for the definite Ian Snell so to speak.

Holy crap. Can you please post a picture of the Vlad success? I didn't think he would sign because I know from other people that he does PP when he was with the Rangers, Angels, etc. Either way, I'm sending one out tomorrow!!

Chone Figgins c/o Mariners ST. he didnt seal the envelope just tucked the top flap in, but it showed up in perfect condition

You may want to spend just a little more and buy the peel n seal envelopes. When all they have to do is pull a tab and press the sticker down to close you have a better shot at a safe return. I could not ever imagine licking envelopes again!

I sent all of mine on the 14th, I guess I gotta chill before I start worrying. But since I have 0 successes since January 5th, I am starting to worry that my mailman is stealing. I'll know for sure I guess if I get nothing back in the next week or 2.

smejus57
02-24-2011, 02:39 PM
Yeah man, you just need to mail and be patient. I have about 20 set cards out to NFL guys I know signed before but haven't gotten anything back.

Ordered?? Is there a place to order individual cards.

smejus57
02-24-2011, 04:14 PM
Yep. For baseball, I order from http://www.justcommons.com/

They don't have pictures of the cards or anything but I really only stick with Allen & Ginters and Bowman Chromes so I don't need to see what they look like but that's where I order from. Most commons are $.18 and free shipping over $10. Anything under $10 is like $2

metsmagic18
02-24-2011, 04:16 PM
I had 3 days in a row of success a few weeks back but its dead over here now. Maybe some ST's will roll in... Everyone talks about their successes. What if we had a thread about failures?

This is a good site cause they have all sports but I don't use that as much because you have to pay each seller. So if I need cards from 4 sellers, I have to pay shipping 4 times. That's why I like justcommons cause its a flat rate shipping 1 time.

Today, after 5 weeks+ of drought, I got my first TTMs back. It was a great feeling to see some SASEs in there! Also, I get to stop blaming my mailman for stealing them, which is good because I always thought he was a good guy and hated the idea of him stealing my crap.

Ugh, this is my first spring as a TTMer and I'm so impatient. Every day I check the mail with high hopes and most of the time finish with low spirits. After every day, I wonder what the next will bring. If I get one on one day I want two tomorrow and Saturdays are the worst because the next time you get the mail it won't be the weekend anymore. :(
Sent 10 letters today...

Hopefully a Mike Moustakas will be in my future...

So far this month:
-Stan Musial (index card)
-Bobby Doerr (index card + HOF postcard)
-Pat Neshek (@ home, 2010 Topps)
From Spring Training
-Drew Stubbs
-Eric Young Jr
-Dustin Ackley

In one month I've received triple the amount of mail that I did in my entire TTM "career"

This is my first Spring doing TTM too, out of curiosity in previous years is there typically a "cut off date" in which the odds of you getting a return isn't as likely? Odd question I know but being they are only down there for a few months, didn't quite know how that all works. Thanks!

It's a good question. I would imagine that we've all still got a good three weeks (until the middle of March) before you're better just sending things to them at their regular stadiums. The question is whether the player takes their mail "north" with them when they break camp, and I think that's different for each player. Then you've got the chance that if you send something and the player doesn't get to it, but they sign it as soon as they get to ST next year...

When is the "window"? Is now too late? I was going to send 5 or so out ASAP

cyberer
03-01-2011, 05:20 PM
The window is just a subjective term for when the player is signing. None of us know for sure when Vlad will stop, but he has signed these few, but it stands to reason if he gets 50 requests this week he may stop signing. So by beating the "window" I was just saying I hope I get to him before he stops signing. It's all guesswork. I'd say still give it a shot (but if you get it and I don't I'll be ticked off lol).

HE IS MY MOST WANTED AUTOGRAPH!!!!

YOU ARE SO LUCKY!!!

I HAVE NEVER HAD A SUCCESS WITH HIM. I just sent out to him today. I sent him a long, genuine, and kind of sappy letter that even had a small picture of my infant daughter wearing a David Wright jersey attached to it. I sent it 2-3 day priority too hoping that would make a difference. I hope I sent it in enough time. I told myself I wouldn't send to ST this year and I got the itch within the last week.

CONGRATS. It looks like the real deal. He has a real nice and distinct signature, and yours looks perfect. As for talk of a ghost signer, that seemed to be years ago shortly after he came into the league. Since then, getting a success from him has been incredibly rare. Given the rare sporadic successes popping up since the end of last year, I would imagine that no ghost signer was involved or else we would see many many more (i.e. Konerko and Beckham if that is the case). Follow?

Well, I sent to Mike Leake c/o Red ST on 14-Feb-2011, and today I got back a picture card, called The Autograph Card, and I don't think it is a real signature, but rather a facsimile, as I cannot feel anything on the card. The back of it says "Thank you for your supprt and interest in my career. Due to the high volume, I cannot reply to each request personally." However, he was able to keep the two cards I sent, 10 Topps/10 Bowman. I'm counting this as a failure.

very possible. i like some guys on the tigers like scherzer, jackson and inge, but lets be honest. as far as fan relations go, the tigers are one of the worst in baseball, right up there with the Phillies, Red Sox and Yankees. Only difference is that the other three have won something in the last 20 years.

maybe, but what other team makes you pay for current players. all teams have their own charities but no other ones make you donate to get a card signed. I have a lot of respect for the charities, but i dont know about this whole 10 bucks a card thing. Also, if the team is insisting i donate to get my card signed it better come back signed...

Most likely not, unless you called him a ___ in the letter. :)

Patience is key when going TTM. It took me 2 or 3 times before I got Buehrle, who is known as one of the best signers in baseball.

Good Luck. It hasn't been long...some people may get back sooner than you...maybe they live closer, maybe he responded to them before yours...who knows? I'm sure you may get one back any day now. I hope you do.

Players aren't supposed to sign so close to game time but 10 minutes before the first pitch he was sitting on the dugout steps, looked at the clock, looked at me and said, "Ah, what the heck," and signed for me. No one else was there because they had all gone back to their seats.

Same here, don't worry. I sent before almost everyone that already got theirs (2/23) and I haven't gotten nothing. I thought for sure it would come today, but I'm starting to panic now, and I'm sending out another one tomorrow (3/8).

I have sent 40 requests to the Cubs ST on Feb 18th, and to this date I have not received any of them back. I really do not expect to get the big names such as Wood, Soriano, Maddux, Soto, and Fukudome; but did expect to receive some of the non-roster invitees to reply and some of the other players who are normally great responders (i.e. Byrd, Dempster, and Marshall). I also only saw that one person got a response from Cashner, but other than that has anyone sent out anything to the Cubs and received anything yet?

Brandon Snyder c/o Orioles ST....1/1.....25 days. Brandon signed in blue sharpie, and the sig looks amazing on the 2011 Topps card. The only bad part was the card got beat to hell in the mail and the two corners are really bent, but I don't care because I got my card back with the auto.

As well as this:

It is actually the return envelope (without the cards) and with the .75$ stamp still intact. So I know this never got to the player. I'm just bummed because I don't know who it was that didn't get my request as I didn't mark the envelope with the player's name. :confused0024:

I just moved a good handfull of threads to the archieves and I know that those involved read this thread regularly! I am posting this here, so ALL members may see it.

-WE WILL NOT CALL NAMES AND ARGUE IN THIS FORUM!

We have a very good group of guys in the autograph community here and I am shocked at those posts. Treat each other with respect as being a member of this forum is not a right and will not be abused. Language was not the issues, but think about what you are saying before you post it! Here is a copy of the SCF Rule:

"VIII Language:
Any foul or hostile language used in SCF will not be tolerated. This includes any derogatory statements and profanity. In accordance, using symbols to represent letters or to cover letters/words is not permitted either as the words are easy to decipher. This includes any attempt to work around our foul word filter or using abbreviations for foul words. Words caught by the foul word filter will appear on the boards blanked out by * and an infraction will still be handed out for their use.

Direct or indirect personal attacks are strictly not permitted. Insults and negative attitudes are not allowed. It is better to walk away from a possible confrontation and come back with constructive arguments after you have cooled off.

EPIC mail day today!!!! The first is ST related. Although he didn't sign my card, Nolan Ryan sent 2 auto'd 3 x 4 cards. They look to be real autos as I can see streaks in the letters and the auto appears to be raised off of the surface a bit. Out 1 week.

As if that wasn't enough to top my day, it's not the card that I sent but I received back today 1/1 Barry Sanders! It certainly is NOT AP. Speculate all you want about its authenticity but I believe it to be real.

What a day!!!!

Considering there were a handful of successes (Michael Cuddyer comes to mind) from last ST that came in this year, I would say you have plenty of time to wait. Not to mention the guys like Sabathia and Hamilton that tend to sign at the end of the season...

I was finally back on the board today with Pavano, and I expect that a lot of my ST requests are lost forever. Vlad, I'm looking at you... I did get on board the Big Mac Train, so the spring wasn't a total loss. I'm still holding out hope, I got Matt Cain back this spring from a request I sent last spring. Maybe Vladdy will sign the card I sent next spring...

I didn't really end the spring on a high note. My last letter received was my letter, card, and no auto from Jeremy Guthrie. Gotta admit though, he shut down the Rays yesterday...

Anyhow, for a first-timer, this was a good start! I got 18 letters out of 50 sent.

18/50 =36% Is that good? It's about a third...

Another question, I know sending letters to the home stadium isn't as good as ST, but will it still work? I'm 2/8 lifetime.

I think (I know I will) you should try again during the regular season. His successes have been consistent from Camden Yards but not from ST. Worth a shot and since he sent the letter back, I don't have to rewrite it.

Sorry to hear that! I loved my ST from last season. I added Big Mac, Vlad, Trammel, Luis Gonzalez, Josh Hamilton and many others! Do not laugh, but should you wait two or three weeks in you can get an idea of who is signing and give those who are a shot. I usually do two mailings each spring. I drop a good hundred or so to start. I then take another twenty or so of the early returners that I want in early March.

Also sent to McGwire, Guerrero, and Koji Uehara later (off the top of my head) and only got back Koji. Mostly good signers in the past (or at least decent or even hit/miss) and I just got Sizemore, Bailey, and Uehara. I also sent another stack I didn't write down...not doing this again.
