I am a big METS fan and it is always nice to get one back from my favorite team. My mouth dropped when I opened it. He isn't a "big name" but he is certainly a guy I have NEVER seen come back TTM mail. Also...
I SENT IT 2 YEARS AGO! My letter sat at the Mets Spring Training Facility for 2 YEARS!! I'm not angry about it...I'm impressed. Anyway:
DANIEL MURPHY c/o New York Mets ST Signed 1/1 Custom, Personalized to my family. Turnaround time is the longest wait I've ever had: 2 years
And to think, I prepared 40 letters for this ST but backed off thinking: What's the point? This is getting to be a waste. Murphy just taught me to never give up on them."Higher - Faster - Stronger"
"Clear Eyes, Full Heart, Can't Lose..."
