    Appropriate to send card through the mail to player's post career job?

    Hi everyone, My name is Troy and I collect LSU and Saints autographs. I have built up a decent sized collection through purchasing cards on ebay, however there are some players who never had an autographed card produced. I am trying to get into TTM so that I can collect autographs of these players.

    The question in the subject is relating to Matt Mauck, former LSU National Championhip Quarterback. Matt Mauck is now a dentist, and his practice is the only address that I can find for him. I was wondering if you all thought it would be appropriate to send a letter to his business?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Personally, I have never done it, but I have seen many people who have done so and received success in doing so. I think as long as your letter is respectful and you only send once, it would be fine. Just my opinion.

    I think it is absolutely appropriate. Most former players have more time post-playing, and some are happy to receive fan mail and reminders of their playing days.

    As long as you write a good letter, it doesn’t matter muchwhere you send your letter. Personally I think the person would like that you’resending to their work rather than their home address.

    Best of luck on your mailing. I always like seeing what some of these college stars end up doing after they are done with sports. The trueth is that I have sent to players who have become car salesmen, insurance agents and even ministers with success via their work. You should be fine.
