I am on summer break and have been obsessively sending out mail and impatiently waiting for the mailman so I decided to start a success thread to kill time.

Zach Parise Signed Puck: Purchased from another member. Puck is slightly damaged and has a blue stain, but I got a good deal on it so I am not complaining.http://i50.tinypic.com/2a7bcqo.jpg

I am loving it right now. I just cant't understand why I didn't start this earlier. I regret not doing this before. Just started collecting last month after I found a Dirk Nowitzki ttm and was curious. I was in the middle of finals too and this kind of distracted me in a good way. Definitely looking forward to more!

Nice Votto, sent one to him about the same time so I'm hoping for a return soon.

Had an All-Pro card laying around so I decided to send it. The sharpie he used wasn't the best so the signature is smudge. There was sticky white dust all over the card...pretty weird. Postmarked from Lafayette, Louisiana.

Sent Today:

Wade Boggs: 4x6 photo with a small donation, decided to jump on the Boggs train before it is too late.
Danny Granger: Card along with a short letter.

That's it for today. Tomorrow will be better than Today! God Bless!

Excellent Joey Votto. I wasn't aware that he signed. He's on my fantasy team.

I had an extra Votto card laying around so I decided to send it and push my luck. Great success. Send it out before it is too late because he is a top five IB and it is rare that superstars like him sign.

Great success from a future HOF. Sent one last month but received a preprint. Sent a 5 dollar donation this time and got this 3D card backed SIGNED!
