Tell us about your TTM Project past or current.
I have done many projects myself over the years and seen many great projects from other members. They have been as small as mailing to every current NASCAR driver to trying collect every American Olympian medalist that I can. I have never been a complete set guy outside of smaller team sets for minor league baseball teams. I have a few of those completed. I want to hear about your TTM projects! How close did you come to completion. What was it? Did you ever do a whole Topps set? Were you able to get every living Cy Young winner? Share it with us please?

My momma sent me all of the cards that I collected as a child growing up in the junk wax error of the 1980s and 1990s. I got thousands of base cards from all four sports that I don't know what to do with. I'm sending as many as I can ttm. I'm actually getting some pretty good responses.

I've have not done TTM in awhile. But, when I did do it. I did very well with the 1991 Topps Archives which are reprints of the 53 Topps Set. I also did the 94 Archive set which where re-prints of the 54 Topps Set. 90% of the returns came back real fast and often included extras. In most cases I would offer extra cards to the players and they would sign the extras and send them back to me. Most if not all of the players also signed the Index cards I would include for card protection.
Only a handful of the players requested $$$.
You can find unopened boxes of these cards on ebay fairly cheap.
If anyone of you guys start a similar project. Do your homework on wheather the players are still alive. Many of the players from those sets are in the there 80's and 90's. I was using this one website that did not do a good updating dates and I had a couple of embarassing returns from players wives.

My main goal is to get every card signed from the 1989 Topps baseball set. I am currently at 661 out of 792 cards signed for the entire set. I have a few coming in once the private signings are done. My goal is to have 100 left by the end of the year and I am well on my way to get there.
I am also over half way through the 2010 Bowman Topps 100 set as wel.. I have 40 left to complete that set.89' Topps %90.15 (714/786)
90' Upper Deck %37.50 (297/792)
09' Topps (318/660)
10' A&G (91/350)

Been working on the '05-'06 Upper Deck hockey set (base and young guns) for the better part of 6 1/2 years now,I've managed to get 141 or so cards autographed from it although the roadblock of finding cards signed by the players killed in the Lokomotiv plane crash remains one of my biggest obstacles alongside finding ones by ovechkin,Kovalchuk,the sedins,kiprusoff and iginla
