100 for 2013! Success Thread
Reading Rudickulous' thread made me want to start my own! I am hoping to get 100 new autographs by 12/31/13. Wish me luck, here we go!
2012 marks the first year I started doing TTM. I wish I had started earlier because less and less players sign each year which is tragic but with the amount of dealers out there, it is understandable. 2012 has been very kind to me in terms of both schoolwork and TTMs. My favorite successes from 2012 includes Robin Van Persie (my avatar and my favorite athlete), Barack and Michelle Obama, Paul Ryan, Peyton Manning (Twice!), David Beckham, Josh Hamilton (Twice), Joey Votto, Miguel Cabrera, and David Price.
My rates for 2012:
46 for 76 autograph requests
About 60% success rate, hoping to get a couple more from 2012 rolling in!

20) Clayton Kershaw. Signed my card and answered my questions! So happy to see a success from a Cy Young winner and arguably the best pitcher in baseball!Wish all the stars were like him!
29) Chipper Jones. I sent to him c/o Braves in the summer but no response so sent it to another address. Swapped my index card for this pre signed 4x6. Chipper is my favorite Braves player and a class act!

It's always awesome to see new threads and to see you got inspired from me was even cooler.
Rooting for ya all the way buddy...if ya want some help with some Indians players throughout the year too lmk. I could work out a trade or something. However, something tells me that you'll reach 100 in no time. Good luck though and keep up the awesome work.Reached 100 autos by 2012 (Actual number achieved=200)
500 New Autos by 2014: 44/500 completed
