    acratertocoffin TTM/IP Success Thread

    I started doing TTM when I was 12. I did it on and off through middle school, got out of it in high school and then I stopped watching baseball completely after the Mitchell Report. I have gotten back into it with a vengeance over the last couple of summers.

    Last January out of the blue I just thought it would be fun to look see if people still sign TTM and which of the big names sign. Turns out Wade Boggs signs. Five dollars later and I have a Wade Boggs autograph.

    I have done a fair share of IP for some of my most treasured pieces and I will do IP trips occasionally, but I find that TTM is a passive, patient method of low risk/high reward.

    As my primary project I collect signed HOF postcards, so I get pretty freaking stoked whenever one comes in. In between those bursts of joy, I mostly go for players that interest me for one reason or another.

    Oft discussed as to the validity. I'm inclined to think it's legit. I can't think of a reason to ghost sign 50 cards and then stop. Also, in one reality I have a Mike Trout autograph. The other I don't.

    I mentioned something about my dad in the letter and he p
    ersonalized the hell out of it. Not sure where the birthday came up.
    Signed my SASE too.
