    CyberErik's Success Thread- just starting out, feedback and help welcome!

    Hey, I just started doing this through the mail stuff in August, and have been amazed as others have said both at the successes I have had and also how addictive this can become. I am currently using about a book of stamps (~20) per 2 week period. I am trying to slow down a bit as the cost adds up, but we shall see.

    Anyway here are my attempts to date:

    A couple of sad days at the mailbox, nothing yet. I am getting increasingly concerned over Matt Barkley and Bryce Harper- the former is supposedly a great signer but I sent him a blank index which some guys don't sign and the latter is a notorious jerk and a longshot.

    You'd think Barkley would at least return the IC to let you know, but I'm almost certain he won't sign it. Even the younger NFL guys are told not to sign index cards.

    it's been 15 days, I guess he still could be sending it back.

    I'm getting a new printer on Monday I will probably print a custom and send to him again.
