Rick, nice Wistert! I sent old "Ox" an 8x10 to sign on Feb. 2011 and never received anything back... You ever wonder what these guys do with the things they don't return? LOL- probably just trash them (after they save the stamps!)...

Nice stuff man. I've long given up on Wistert, I've sent to him probably five times. I don't get it. Last one I sent was right around the time you sent yours.

Not a bad way to start a monday.. 4 returns..
Fred Morrison 2/1, out 10-22, back 11-5. nice return from a 2x NFL Champ & Rose Bowl M.V.P. Thought the IC he included was a nice touch.
Lionel Hollins 2/2, out 10-25, back 11-5. sent him 2 cards, Kept both & sent back this card & a signed IC.
Jeff Siemon 5/3, out 10-22, back 11-5. very nice return. I sent the 3 cards, He included the signed IC & the nice color photo. also added CFHOF 06 & 4x pro bowl to one of the cards. Very pleased.
John Siegal 4/2, out 10-29, back 11-5. Top photo turned out nice, Bottom photo didnt turn out the best.lil hard to see the sig but still nice. Looked for other photos to send, but not alot of options out there for him. He also sent back two signed IC, but those are impossible to read. Mr Siegal is 94 years young & played for the bears from 1939-1943. In that time he was a 3x Champion & 3x Pro Bowler. Pretty amazing career. Stoked to get this return.

finished up the week with 3 more.
first, Arnold Palmer 1/1, out 10-20, back 11-10. Looks almost identical to the first return i got from him with the exception, This returns signature is alittle bigger & a thicker sharpie was used. Starting to believe the hype that maybe these are all AP. Also nice they signed this one on the back as well . Only reason i sent the 2nd one was to maybe get a sig on the front but no dice. Wont be sending again unless its via venue.
Nick Saban 2/1, out 10-30, back 11-10. got lucky & must have caught coach in a signing mood. Have tried before & got the PP back. nice of him to include the IC.
Dave Robinson 2/2, out 7-13, back 11-10. Nice return from a CFHOFer. Even sent a note back saying "Sorry im so late, God Bless" also signed. Have heard of him signing for a fee but did not send a fee with these.

Jim Greengrass 4/1, out 11-3, back 11-13. very nice return. added a signed photo & 2 signed IC. one with just a sig, other was a nice note.
