    BBonds25 TTM Success

    I just started getting back into TTM's over the past couple of months, and figured I'd start my own success thread. So far I've mainly focused on HOF and retired NFL players, but plan on expanding to all sports. I'll post the scans of my recent success in the following posts, starting with my favorite.

    Thanks for the looks. Comments are always welcome.

    I'm going to start this off with my favorite success so far.

    I sent a letter to Raymond Berry, along with a 1997 UD legends card. About 1 week later, I got back the following:

    Along with the cards and picture, he also sent a note saying that there was a player on his Colt's team with the same last name as me. He also sent another note telling me that if I send him the names of my 4 boys, he'd personalize a picture for each of them. So I sent him another letter telling him about my boys, and how I was going to show them some clips from his playing career. About 10 days later, I got a package in the mail with the following:

    My older 2 are starting to get into football, and were pretty excited to get their first TTM. I told them a little bit about Mr. Berry and the "Greatest Game Ever Played" He also sent us the DVD "The Greatest Game Ever Played", the book "The Greatest Game Ever", and a dvd of some of his career highlights. I have to return the dvd's and book when we are done, but it's still a really cool gesture from an all time great.

    A few I got back last week:

    Bob Kuechenberg 1990 Pro Set Super Bowl Supermen w/ 17-0 inscription. Also wrote a thank you note on my letter and signed it.
    Chuck Howley 1990 Super Bowl Supermen and 1971 Topps
    Ed "Too Tall" Jones 1990 Pro Set Super Bowl Supermen and 1983 Topps. Topps smudged a little and rubbed off on the back of the other.
