A few nice TTMs today:
Anna Kournikova, signed two nice pics. Sure miss seeing her on the WTA courts!
Mike Lowell, signed my 8x10 with my "funky" gold glove logo. Kind of unexpected because I have never seen a TTM from him so I guess my letter worked out. Took over 40 days...
Mark Martin, signed two 8x10s of his really early days. He probably was laughing when he signed them...
Wow congrats on the lowell! I have to admit im very jealous of it. But anyways nice job!
Great mike lowell. Loved him in boston

Joe Washington, signed my 8x10 previously signed by Bert Jones. As he normally does, he also included his business card. I had already sent Ted Marchibroda one of these that he signed so I don't think I'm sending him this one too...
Ed Kranepool, signed 8x10 of him getting some words of wisdom from Casey Stengel...
Only one TTM today but its a nice treat to end the week!
"The Gronk" Rob Gronkowski, personalized my 8x10. Took over 10 months to get this back but I'm extremely happy. Unfortunately, he plays in the AFC East against my Dolphins! If he stays healthy, he will be a sure HOF'er...
nice gronk. Its sad to see how he has shrunk his sig. I have meet him a few times up here being only 15 min from the stadium and he is always great in person.
Thank you. Its amazing how the new breed of athletes will start mainly doing scribbles for signatures when they become well known. At least we still have Red Schoendienst who will always sign his name legibly (it takes him 3 start and stops to sign his name these days!). The good thing is that at least the Gronk still signs...

Very jealous of this success. I sent him some cards over a year ago so im still holding out hope but not much. Alot of his returns have been 8x10 photos. Great success either way.
Rick, thank you. The Gronk is definately a character and a heck of a talented player. My favorite line of his was when he was interviewed last year by a Spanish TV station and he uttered that great line, "Yo soy fiesta!" Don't give up on your cards coming back, I'm sure he has been slammed by request since last season.

George Karl, personalized my 8x10. Hope to see him continue to get more healthy!
Ronnie Lippett, signed my 8x10; took like 10 months to get back. He was a bad dude during his playing days!
Jimmy Wynn (the Toy Cannon), signed my 8x10 (+$5).
Wayne Terwilliger, signed my 8x10 (+$5).
Jerry Coleman, signed two 8x10s, 1 CIC & kept the extra I offered him. Although he got into the HOF as a Ford Frick recipient, he won 4 W.S. Championships!
Jon Voight, personalized my 8x10 from one of his best movies. Unfortunately, I spelled his 1st name incorrect on the pic but at least my LOR and SASE were spelled correctly. Not the first time I've done this...
Billy Cannon. This guy just doesn't sign anything. I guess serving a prison term made this Heisman winner a little difficult...
Tony Dorsett. Sent him a letter asking for permission to send him my Heisman pic for him to sign. Mailed back my SASE with my letter without writing anything. I guess that was his NO answer. LOL - no way my Heisman pic will ever see the inside of his mailbox!
