Waffle11's TTM and IP successes
Long-time lurker, but finally decided to jump back into the TTM game after slowing down in 2012 and all but dropping out in 2013. Also, if I run into any IP events, I will post the results here!
Got my first success back today on the year as I prepare the bulk of my time for Spring Training letters. I got a 2/2 back from Karl "Tuffy" Rhodes in seven days!
Then, later this afternoon, Astros pitchers Jarred Cosart and Josh Zeid came through on the Astro Caravan, and I was able to get them on 2011 Topps Heritage Minors cards. The extra Cosart on the 2010 Topps Pro Debut is going to a friend in Louisiana.
Here's to hoping for more successes as the year goes on!

Going to post pictures later tonight, but I went to Astros Fan Fest on Saturday, and got the following cards IP
- Jose Altuve
- Lucas Harrell
- Matt Albers (Actually picked up my card, showed it to Robbie Grossman and said "I'm not gonna look this young anymore!"
- Chris Carter
- Max Stassi
- George Springer
- Brett Wallace
- L.J. Hoes, w/a slight smudge on the last name
- Carlos Correa, which got smudged...because I'm an idiot. Womp.
Plus team-issued postcard/photos signed by Marc Krauss, Albers, Jason Castro, Correa, Josh Zeid, Robbie Grossman, Springer, Stassi, Mike Foltynewicz, Matt Dominguez, Dallas Keuchel, Chad Qualls, Hoes, and Scott Feldman. The ones I got on postcards but not on cards went to my sister, who put their autograph in her book.
As far as TTM...we'll see! I'm seeing returns from Boggs and Spiers, which intrigues me!...not here, though. Maybe tomorrow.
I'll try pictures later. It's not loading for me now. Again, womp

It appears Dustin Ackley WILL be a success (the 2013 one anyways) after a year-long wait. Now I feel goofy sending to him now. lol
Photo when I'm back at home.

Got Pat Neshek 5/1 (added four trades) yesterday. I now have all but one of his minor league cards. Not sure if that's impressive or odd. haha
Pictures at lunch time. I SWEAR THIS TIME. lol
