I have only had fanpack success so far but I'm being optimistic and making this thread so once the TTM's start coming in I'll be good to go. Plus like Field of Dreams, "If you build it, they will come."

Today 03/11/11 sent out:
Morgan Ensberg jersey (only jersey I've ever sent the rest have been cards)

3/21 - I got back my 2005 Astros World Series Morgan Ensberg jersey today. Great looking signature with his jersey number and I believe a bible verse. Great guy and so happy to add this to my collection.

Tommy Manzella c/o Oklahoma City RedHawks. Out: 4/4/11 Received: 4/20/11
He's a decent young short stop and I hope his bat improves so he can make the MLB roster again.

It's been a slow time for me lately but finally got one in today. I honestly don't remember when I sent this one out but I know it was in mid-April. I sent it to the training facility he used while in New Jersey this offseason. Glad to get it back since he's one of my favorite Texans.

Haven't had many returns lately but this one came pretty quickly. Sent to Willy Taveras c/o the Sky Sox. I believe I sent it 5/2 and received it today 5/14. Add to my 2005 Astros World Series team.

I haven't been on in awhile but here are some of my successes over the past few months. I didn't really do too much TTM after ST last year so there aren't a lot.

Nice Barkley!

Thanks! I was excited to get it back after seeing other people had success. I'm a huge USC Trojans fan so it was a nice return. I'm 3/3 for USC guys (Cushing, Barkley and Ensberg) ha.

Hey guys, just wanted to give y'all an update on my project of getting an Astros player TTM/IP on a card from each year they've been around (1962-2012) I'm getting more than just Topps signed (ie, Upper Deck, Fleer, etc...) but may eventually upgrade to only Topps. The scans below are of the first two full pages I have, the other pages aren't finished yet. Thanks for taking a look.

A few recent pickups of mine. The Mark Appel is probably my favorite success of the 3 due to the nice note he wrote on the picture.

Yea, I've had mixed results with college players so I wasn't sure what to expect but he came through big time. I was going to send an 8x10 but couldn't find a good picture for that so settled on 4x6.

Probably my second biggest return of the year coming from Olympic Gold medalist Nasita Liukin via private address. Really excited to get this return as she's my favorite gymnast from the 2008 Beijing Olympics. She signed 2/2 in about 3 weeks or less.

I can't give out the address since it came from a site that you have to subscribe to but I can send anyone the link to that site if they're interested in her address.

Wish me luck, I'm sending an OMLB out tomorrow to Carlos Correa (the Astros first round draft pick). I know he may be getting swamped once he gets to the GCL but I figure it doesn't hurt to try.

Hey guys, received one today that I've had out for around a month or more. Sent to my favorite college softball pitcher, Ivy Renfroe from the University of Tennessee. Thought I may not get it back but then realized she might wait to sign until after the season was over. Unfortunately for her and the Vols the season ended earlier than anticipated.

Great success and I'm super excited to add her to my collection.

The following two took 70 days but well worth the wait. One of them smudges horribly but it's all good since the other one looks better. Coming from the Rifftrax/MST3K guys.

Got 3 successes in today and one RTS. The RTS was from Julio Lugo c/o an address from Startiger. Here are the 3 successes.

http://i1141.photobucket.com/albums/n586/Trey_Jones001/TTM/MeyerTTM.jpg
Jonathan Meyer c/o Lancaster Jethawks (7 days)

http://i1141.photobucket.com/albums/n586/Trey_Jones001/TTM/WaltonTTM.jpg
Danny Walton c/o home (54 days)

http://i1141.photobucket.com/albums/n586/Trey_Jones001/TTM/SluggerrTTM.jpg
Sluggerrr c/o K.C. Royals (8 days)

I know sending to a mascot is kind of dumb but I thought it'd be a cool little project getting all the mascots from the opening day set. Don't judge me ha.

I only have like 8 cards of the 25 from 2012 Opening Day but I plan on buying the whole set and sending to all the mascots. I'm sure some are harder than others but it would be fun to get.

Awesome success today! I should have sent a ball like I wanted to but I'm happy with the 4x6's I sent. Sent to the Astros ST facility in Kissimmee, Fl and got this back in exactly 7 days, so pretty quick turnaround. #1 overall pick and Astros first selection of the 2012 Draft, Carlos Correa.

Hi! I was wondering the same thing- where did you send McCullers to? the GCL stadium of the Stros?

thj0011
07-02-2012, 01:27 AM
I sent the McCullers to the same place I sent Correa, the GCL Astros in Kissimmee. Here's the address:

C/O GCL Astros
Osceola County Stadium
631 Heritage Parkway
Kissimmee, Fl 34744

Keep in mind, I sent to these guys pretty much the day after they officially signed with the team. I'm sure he'll be signing for awhile though.

As you guys know I am collecting the 2012 Opening Day Mascot set and I got my 2nd return in today. Coming back in 15 days c/o Arizona D'Backs. "It" also wrote a nice little note, ha. These successes are cracking me up and I'm excited to get the whole set done to give to my nephew.
