A few TTMs to end the week:
Failure, 2nd time I sent Tony Dorsett a note with a question and just asked him to mark "yes or no". Stuffed my letter in SASE & didn't bother even putting a check mark. LOL - he's definately off my X-Mas list forever...
Dick Vermeil, signed two CICs & a multi-coach 8x10 (scan in future).
Frank Gifford, signed two CICs with $5. Cool that he used black on B/W card & blue on the color one.
Carl Banks & LT, signed my NY Giants LBs 8x10 since I last scanned it. I think this 8x10 has been retired from any further TTM trips!
Bobby Brown, signed 2 CICs & IC. Dr. Brown is still going strong at 88 yrs. old - took only 6 days for mail!
Paul Foytack, signed a multi-player 8x10 that I will scan when updated.
Mario Andretti, personalize a funky custom 8x10 that I put together - took 6 months. I love that his sig always looks like it's doing 250mph!

Thanks for sharing the Roy Sievers answers- those are great. I live in a Dallas suburb. I don't believe I have ever seen or heard of Dorsett doing a TTM. I have tried myself, even including a $25 charitable donation. That said, he does free (promotional)signings around the DFW metroplex, usually a couple times a year, and I have been able to get his autograph that way. He is, however, infamously moody, and there are stories of him getting ticked and walking off and going home if he gets agitated (so get in line early! lol) The day I met him I was at the back of the line. He was supposed to sign for an hour, but stayed about 25 minutes over to accomodate everyone, and when I got to him he was just as nice as you'd ever hope to meet.

Well, it started for me today. Decided to take a ride by the Cards & Marlins ST complex and found a few unexpected surprises:
Yadier Molina, signed two 8x10s. The one below I had started last year during ST by getting Wainwright but was shut out from Yadi. He also signed my multi-player field celebration for their last WS Championship. He was really working out hard!
Juan Pierre, signed my 8x10 (didn't have any new Marlins pics yet). What a truly nice, polite & hard working player!
Steve Cishek, signed my 8x10. LOL, he rode up to me on his bicycle when I called him.
HOF mojo on the TTMs today:
Bob Lilly, signed 2 CICs (+$5). Made a special double postcard (College & Pro Football HOF).
Dan Fouts, signed 2 CICs.
Jason White, signed my Heisman winners pic after 1 1/2 months (of making me very worried about my pic!). Will scan in the future.

nice stuff. also got my White back today. I was wondering if you was starting to get nervous about that Heisman pic. I know we sent right around the same time & i was starting to wonder about my cards if there were coming back, couldnt imagine a Heisman pic full of sweet sigs like yours was. Great stuff as always.
