Landon Donovan 1/1
-Wow, wasn't expecting to see this come back! A superb player for the US National team and LA Galaxy, also had a great run for Everton. Hopefully, he will be able to return to the National team this year.

Kicking off May with a great success!
Juan Mata 2/2
-Shortlisted for the PFA Player of the Year, Mata is one of the best attacking midfielders in Britain and played a key role in Spain's EURO finale against Italy. The Chelsea F.C midfielder signed one of my pictures but left the another unsigned. He also sent me a signed Chelsea logo picture which I didn't send and signed it vertically. Wished he had signed my dual picture with Torres.

My mailman came later than usual today. He is usually pulls up at our complex just before I leave for work and he lands me my mail on my way out but I guess its his off day or something so sorry for the delay.
Another awesome pickup from my buddy, David in CA.
I already have 2 of Kemp and 1 of Ethier but I wanted a dual. The silver SRX looks really good in person. Thanks David!

Just realized that I am almost half way to 100 and it is not even June yet!
So here are my stats so far:
Year Rate: 22 out of 62 requests (35%)
Total Rate: 68 out of 138 requests (49%)
Note that my goal only counts autographs that have came through mail whether it was a request or a 50/50. I've decided not to count my In Person stuff because out of the 65+ in person autographs, many were duplicates from those I got last season like Lester and Buchholz (Last Year: 6 of Lester and 10 of Buchholz, This Year: 3 of Lester and 2 of Buchholz), it would be meaningless and sort of cheating to count those since I already got them. However I will still be sharing my in person stuff if anyone is interesting into reading my recaps and if there are autographs I haven't gotten before.
