Now is a great time to get Wade Boggs for your set project. He's been signing very consistently for the last several months, and with a small donation (or not, some people get a response without the $) you should have no problem getting him.
Good luck with your project.

Sent cards out to a few of my Favorite Players from the 80-90's.
Had to try a few toughies but also sent to a few who are know to sign.
Sent these cards out on 10/19 and 10/20
Matt Young #19- Pretty good pitcher for the Mariners and i needed someone who i know signs. RETURNED SIGNED
Jimmy Key #29- Solid pitcher for the Blue Jays, also remember him from the World Series with the Jays. Loved the Joe Carter (oklahoma city kid) homerun. Good signer for success. RETURNED SIGNED
Wally Joyner #80- This guy could just plain hit. Saw he was hired as hitting assistant for Phillies so thought id take a shot to team. sending more during ST.
Wade Boggs #150- Still a favorite hitter of mine from the 80-90's. Guy could just flat out hit the ball. Saw all the success and had to give it a shot. Sent $5 donation. recieved signed
Pat Corrales #268- Now an assistant for the nationals. Wanted to get him while i had a chance.
Greg Gagne #558- liked this guy from those old Twins teams. He was a sparkplug type player. RETURNED SIGNED
Vince Coleman #590- He was a beast on the basepath. You knew he was stealing and it didnt even matter. This is a longshot but figured it was worth a try.
Ron Cey #767- trying to ink a few Cubs and he was a pretty solid player for the Dodgers in the early 80's before he wore the Cubs uniform. Hoping he continues signing would love to add this one. recieved signed
Shane Rawley #771- Pretty good pitcher for the Phillies. Missed him when he had the restraunt so im trying the home address-Long shot.
Oddibe McDowell #95- Another Rangers player who i liked to watch back in the day. Im working pretty hard on collecting Rangers autos as i have the most knowledge of them. RETURNED SIGNED
Ruben Sierra #261- Met him at a Rangers Game last year. He has a big accent but a really friendly guy to talk to. Got a signed ball now hoping for a TTM on card.
Will Clark #420- The Thrill was a favorite Ranger when he played. I tried to get his auto in person several times but always failed. So here is to hoping.
Sent out cards to Shawon Dunston and Danny Tartabull but had no 1987 Topps of them so ill be trading them for 1987 Topps if anyone has them.
And now we wait......
