    alf7624 - TTM Success Thread

    Hello everyone,

    Newer member here, and just started doing TTM. Started 2 weeks ago mailing my first items out, and over the last 2 weeks have 16 Baseballs out there.

    Went with many safer bets to start especially since I was sending ROMLB out.
    All requests I sent a bic blue pen to hopefully help my chances of getting signed in a good looking pen.

    Here is the list of who I sent out so far-

    Baseball Players:

    Carl Erskine
    Doug Harvey
    Whitey Herzog
    Bud Selig
    Goose Gossage
    Tony LaRussa
    Bob Uecker
    Joe Garagiloa
    Wade Boggs
    Noah Syndergaard
    Jim Bunning
    Pat Gillick

    Jack Nicklaus

    Non Sport:
    Regis Philbin
    James Earl Jones
    Betty White

    Sent 1 baseball to each of the above including - Nicklaus, Philbin, Betty White & James Earl Jones. Been collecting celebrity signed baseballs for a long time, and hope to increase my collection using TTM.

    There are a few I feel like are pretty certain that I will get a ball returned signed, and a few that I am a little more questionable on.

    Will start doing 8x10s TTM this week or next sending out to a few people.

    Question to all:

    Im looking for ideas to send to Basketball or Football players besides cards & 8x10s? Baseball is great cause the balls fit in a SASE bubble mailer easily. Am I forgetting anything that I can send to Football & Basketball players besides cards and pictures?

    On Saturday I received my first 3 baseballs back. Was pretty excited when I opened the mailbox and pulled out 3 bubble mailers.

    Got back:

    Whitey Herzog- He signed on SS in blue pen, BUT did not add the HOF inscription I asked for. I included a 10.00 donation, and now I am seeing more luck for people getting the HOF inscription when they send 15.00. Either way very happy with the return.

    Bud Selig- Signed on SS in Blue Pen. Super quick return considering it was sent around the All Star game. I would think that is a busier time for the Commish. Very happy with this return. All ready had a fay Vincent, not I have to get a ball out to Peter Ueberoth so I can have all the living baseball commissioners.

    Regis Philbin- Very quick return as I am in NY and so is Regis, so only a few days. Signed from side panel across the sweet spot to other side panel in blue sharpie. Personalized inscription with- Andrew, All the best to you, Regis Philbin. I dont mind a personalized item, as I am a collector, and not looking to resell anything right now. I do wish he signed it using my blue pen, as sharpie does not hold up all the times on a baseball, and pen just looks better. But I cant complain about this return. It was great getting Regis to sign a baseball for me.

    Very nice day of first time ever TTM returns. Cant wait for more to come.

    Im going to open a new post in the correct sub group. Just realized this was for email requests, and not TTM.
