Been very quiet this week, I'm really hoping something new comes in soon. Sent out a bunch this morning and will have a couple going out tomorrow as well. Lots of 8x10's to go out once I get more stamps, too.

I did get a Tashard Choice I won in pantherfan's free thread. Very cool piece. I'll post up a picture once I'm bored with watching Colon get smacked around by the Rays. :)

I don't know whats up with colon he has not done good for awhile

He hasn't pitched this long in like 5 years, he's just worn out. Hughes is going to need to step it up for the playoffs, the Yanks are going to need 3 pitchers to depend on.

Finally a sucess after a long, unbearable drought!

Jim Bunning 1/1 in 16 days!

Very glad to add this HOFer to the collection!

Got quite a few returns I've fallen behind on posting in this past week, all of them pretty awesome if you ask me!

Steve Atwater 1/1, Thank you to RGP for the photo!

Todd Blackledge, 1/1 in 5 days! Fastest return yet and a surprising add to my Penn State collection!

These last two weeks have been very cool, can't complain at all. I just finished up a customs set for some more Penn State players and the Giants rookies to go out. These will be the last things to go out for awhile, money's gotten a little tight.

Thanks a lot man! I was very surprised to see that he gave HOF inscription on both my photos after seeing that he didn't for you. I'm very happy to have those pieces added to my collection! Love that Tittle does Email requests also, its very cool to get a HOFer like him like that!

Another one came in today...

Yessir. I had a good feeling about him the minute I got his card, so I sent it out c/o the Browns and got it back in a month. Very happy to have him! :)

BIG week and BIG day today, figured I better catch up on my returns. Sorry for not updating like I should.

David Robertson - 1/1 on a 4x6 in a month and a day! Came in last Saturday. Sweet add to the Yanks collection.

Harry Carson! - 1/1 on an 8x10 in 19 days! SO happy to have this one and I love how it came out. Big G-Men addition. Added "Super Bowl XXI" inscription as requested, then also added "HOF 06" and "NY Giants".

Fell behind on updating this quite a bit, haha. Sorry about that! Here's a look at everything I've gotten since I last updated:

Peyton Manning 1/1 on a 2011 Score, returned check and literally made my day when I got it
Paul Posluszny 2/2 on Penn State customs
Randall Cunningham 1/1
Chris Mullin 1/1
Curtis Granderson 1/0, 0/1 on his usual card
Lawrence Taylor 1/1, very happy to add this man to my Giants collection!

The returns have slowed very much, partly because I don't have too much out there anymore. Hopefully some more will come in and I really need to get cracking on getting more out as well.

12-05-2011, 12:10 PM
Congrats on your recent pick ups!

Have quite a few to catch up on here, but here's yesterday's awesome success:

Jason Giambi, 1/1 in 8 months almost to the day!
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v724/loki1230/427101_760976170927_43606639_35528242_1401320429_n .jpg

Unfortunately, it was mangled pretty good in the mail. Whether to him or back to me, Idk. Still an awesome, surprising success I wasn't expecting from a former Yankee.
