    dsolzman's success thread

    I figured I better start this thread sooner rather than later. Since Stan Musial passed away, I've been working on a Baseball Hall of Fame collection. Of the harder to get guys, I've gone through Amazon and purchased them As of today, I am up to 36 of the 62 living Hall of Famers. I've been collecting in general since 2003 mostly through email requests but a lot have been TTM requests. At some point in March, I decided I preferred to send 8x10s to get signed rather than baseball cards for my Hall of Fame collection. I'm also going after the Spink and Frick winners.

    Typical Tuesday. Nothing arrived in the mail today but I did mail out a request to North Carolina women's coach Sylvia Hatchell, who was elected into the Basketball Hall of Fame.

    At some point, I might scan things in...just not sure when that will be yet. I don't remember how I found the SCF website but I am so glad I did!

    Jerry Coleman signed a full page printout with HOF 05 and 4x W Series Champs. It was personalized but he placed the inscriptions above his signature rather than below.

    Don Baylor signed a 1980 Topps card. The card was sent to Arizona on 3/21 and returned today postmarked from Milwaukee.

    Rather late mail day today but I did get some successes back.

    Johnny Bench signed 8x10 inscribed HOF 89. This was via the recent Minnesota show. I would have ordered through his website but at the time, the photo I preferred with the HOF 89 inscription was out of stock. This return brings me to 37 of the 62 living HOF members. I have 7 pending requests, either TTM or via signings.

    Jordyn Wieber signed the photo I sent her on March 13th. I had sent a request with an SASE back in July prior to the Olympics but that request was without a photo provided. As such, I decided to make a second request with a photo provided.

    Jim Perry signed a 1972 Topps card sent on April 5th but did not include the CYA inscription as requested.
