Sending entire SI magazines to be signed?
I was thinking about sending an entire SI magazine to somebody so they could sign the cover. Is this a good idea? Would the signature stick, or would it rub off onto the envelope? I don't want to just rip off the cover... How many forever stamps would I need for this? 3 on my outgoing envelope and SASE? I'd just send a normal SI magazine, LOR, and SASE.

I just sent one and it was around $2.40 there and $2.12 back, so 6 Forever stamps there and 5 back ( I also sent it between 2 file folders, which added a little weight)

I have a ton of signed SIs......all have held up well with Sharpie blue/black. I have also had some done in Silver paint marker. I have never sent any ttm though, all mine are in person. If you want to save a few bucks or don't have the magazine you want to send you can always send a print of the cover which usually doesn't have the mailing label at all.

Watch when you are sending out the older ones, too. The Mags from the 80s had a lot more advertising in them, and therefore are heavier. The may cost closer to 3 dollars for shipping.I NEED 02/03 Topps Heritage Calder Cloth cards!!!
Always looking for signed Philadelphia Sports Illustrateds!
Have an odd Richie Ashburn item? I might want it!
