01-06-2014, 07:06 PM
Really nice day today. 1 failure from Willie Davis, sent back a price list which I think is very new ($10-25 for cards all the way up to footballs and helmets, see the TTMM for the full breakdown). But I got a form letter with what may be an authentic autograph...not sure though http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/9BE25354-5559-4356-8188-19E3077F5864_zpsz5emn4pb.jpg.html. 3/3 from Jim McMahon, personalized and added #9 inscription. http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/36298944-DFE7-4FEA-AC45-281B265CE126_zpscq0ji0rr.jpg.html. Roger Wehrli 1/1 with HoF 07 inscription. http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/6E490717-6626-404B-815C-C200863FB531_zpsqdvmkukr.jpg.html.
Tony Esposito 1/1 with personalization and #7 inscription. http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/4E3E0EB5-8314-454C-B0E8-7F6FB4B853F6_zpsomsvooyk.jpg.html. Finally a return from Chuck Pagano. Sent letter saying due to volume of requests he can only sign for non-profits within Indiana. The Colts did send a nice fanpack with a 2013 team photo, 2013 Yearbook, stickers, coozie, magnet, keychain, and a mini pennant.

01-11-2014, 05:30 PM
After 4 days with no mail, finally got one today. Chris Chelios 2/3 in 5 days! Added his number for both.

01-14-2014, 05:33 PM
Wow! Only one return, but my best return so far this year. http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/722DDF97-64D4-4B3B-A7B4-83497CC8FCB1_zpsiuxwitcq.jpg.html?sort=3&o=0 Bart Starr, w/ $20.

01-22-2014, 02:24 PM
Only gotten 4 back in the last week. First off here are the Chelios' http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/9D5B91AC-5945-4F58-876D-E82B18ACAE43_zpscaskzi8n.jpg.html?sort=3&o=3. Yesterday was Sterling Sharpe http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/A898BE97-B017-4E61-83D9-97B08D9429AD_zpsy7htweqt.jpg.html?sort=3&o=2 and Bobby Doerr http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/4AABD83F-7FA2-402E-99A7-90D64661C49E_zps8iwchulr.jpg.html?sort=3&o=0 his signature is getting shakier, especially his HOF inscription.
Last week also brought Jim Langer which is back out in the mail to get more SB winning Dolphins, and Steve Duchesne http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/5FBD0654-68D1-41F1-A1E7-CC4CB9434554_zps1zq9eqj5.jpg.html?sort=3&o=1 this is the most autographs I have gotten in one return, he signed 3 of 4 IC used for protection.

01-23-2014, 11:59 PM
No TTMs today, only an RTS by Dawn Wells. However a grapher never misses an opportunity. One of the state senators from MI was in my workplace today and I got his autograph. Nothing really special but an autograph is an autograph.

01-24-2014, 08:48 PM
Really good day today. For $10 Chuck Bednarik signed 2 4x6 photos and 1 card. Added HOF 67 to all and "Sorry Frank" and "This .... game is over!" to "the hit" photo. http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/C9893505-26BA-4DEA-8C87-559322792EBB_zpsdr7lmznp.jpg.html?sort=3&o=0 http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/94C188D8-F324-4253-84F2-EA679CD6FAF0_zpshkqufkuo.jpg.html?sort=3&o=1 . Adam Vinatieri returned 1/3 signed, maybe the others fell out because the envelope wasn't sealed. http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/E31B10B1-2E91-4431-91DA-FAD33E6DAF23_zps6ja7ljpt.jpg.html?sort=3&o=2 . Finally, Brandi Chastain signed 1/3 returned the others unsigned because they weren't "soccer photos" darn ;) http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/9C3BFFE6-D25D-449C-9BD6-233EC0EE61CA_zpso14de6m4.jpg.html?sort=3&o=3 http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/52355127-70AB-430F-BE11-68549D50DEE6_zpsf577l70j.jpg.html?sort=3&o=4

01-25-2014, 06:25 PM
1 back today. http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/9D1418AE-B41D-4D4B-8A89-008B4485E08A_zps14tf4y5a.jpg.html?sort=3&o=0 Jeannie Buss returned 1/1 with a note thanking me for the letter.

01-27-2014, 10:31 PM

Wade Boggs signed 3 4x6 w/$5 and added HOF 05 to 1. http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/6519600A-58F3-4DF3-B139-C68404952A08_zpsiostgoge.jpg.html?sort=3&o=0 Al MacInnis also came back today signing 3/4. http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/77A6912D-3523-4C37-8FD3-A1130BD57694_zpsfr8o1tw5.jpg.html?sort=3&o=2

01-28-2014, 08:16 PM
Goose Gossage seems to have gone full Whitey Ford, stopped signing for $10 and even free and now won't accept less than $50 and has a contract with a company... still got his first name on a note. http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/BEFAC6B3-2741-41AB-B118-3E35CA7E6E0A_zpsrzcnibdg.jpg.html?sort=3&o=0 Jack Nicklaus signed 2/2 however to make the day a lot better. http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/833B843C-857D-42B5-B810-2C3C5636A4DD_zpsiugl6dly.jpg.html?sort=3&o=1

01-28-2014, 08:23 PM
wonder who he has a contract with? Maybe Steiner got a hold of him but $50 almost seems to cheap for them. His price seems a bit steep for someone who has been signing for so long & has flooded the market with his own signature.

01-28-2014, 09:11 PM
I thought Steiner because they have Ford, but after seeing around 2 months of free successes and returned fees I was caught off guard to get a note back, but apparently at least one other got a similar not yesterday.

02-04-2014, 05:13 PM
Last week I got Dick LeBeau back on 3 photos http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/8EC146C0-6DC8-4AF7-93D5-AC5BEF0E0789_zpsxrmkveta.jpg.html?sort=3&o=0 then had a long drought before Anna Kournikova came in today signing 2 http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/71F0848A-A692-4ED4-A184-ADDE3B2C3208_zpspchtkuuh.jpg.html?sort=3&o=1.

02-07-2014, 11:52 PM

Saturday a local hockey team had Red Wings legend Tomas Holmstrom signing for free as a fundraiser for their goalies coach who died earlier this year. I brought a pennant that mad many other Wings on it and got Homer to sign that. http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2014-02/9D0562EF-4E4D-4FE7-85E0-F8EE84F1610A_zpsgdia7n4f.jpg.html?filters[user]=138550298&filters[recent]=1&sort=1&o=1 Other Wings on the pennant are Hall of Famers Marcel Dionne, Ted Lindsay, Bill Gadsby, Norm Ullman and Dino Ciccarelli, then Joey Kocur, Dave Lewis, Barry Smith, Petr Klima, Jason Williams, Manny Legace http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2014-02/498FB484-0AA9-433C-B7F6-86C899D08E04_zpsg4zzetvz.jpg.html?filters[user]=138550298&filters[recent]=1&sort=1&o=8 . Once at the game it was announced that the team was signing autographs after the game on the ice, so I went down to where we were let on and while I was waiting one of the ushers gave me a free game used puck that I got 9 guys to sign! http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2014-02/EE004005-B010-4407-9248-C18668B093F3_zpstkstmzje.jpg.html?filters[user]=138550298&filters[recent]=1&sort=1&o=7 http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2014-02/27D11988-FFAF-4F3C-B44D-C6541CB1907D_zps9rs7rgkp.jpg.html?filters[user]=138550298&filters[recent]=1&sort=1&o=6 I will be going back next month when they have more former Red Wings signing at the game.

Today was one heck of a mailday. 9 total autographs! http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/DE647CFE-DBFB-445C-8451-04E8509B8D8D_zpsbbozmxmf.jpg.html?sort=3&o=2 Frank Gifford signed 2 4x6 and a card for me, and added HOF 77 to all of them. I guess it is safe to say that the picture I sent of him laid out by Bednarik isn't coming back, he probably didn't care for it too much, and I can't blame him. Pat Summitt signed the 2 4x6 photos I sent, added HOF 2000 to one, and signed 4 IC's that I used for protection, and added different inscriptions to each! http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/95E70354-996A-43FE-9A22-7FCA9509ADDF_zpskxdwea1h.jpg.html?sort=3&o=1

03-03-2014, 04:40 PM
Today was another great mailday. One failure however as Ozzie Newsome appears to be stamping his signature, both are exactly the same and smeared. Amanda Beard signed 1 of 2 4x6 photos http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/7969C1A7-A8FE-4A54-81C0-457E241EBF01_zps0mwn0prj.jpg.html?sort=3&o=1 . A close second to my favorite success today has to be Matthew Berry, he signed 2 4x6, signed 1 of the ICs for protection, and signed my letter with "I like the cut of your jib!" http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/91608382-06A4-4B90-9A65-34FDF08D9BC3_zps4vydlba1.jpg.html?sort=3&o=2 . Now for my favorite success, Ed Hochuli signed 2 4x6 and my letter, however the inscription I requested and recieved is absolutely phenomenal. "Hochules". http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/4DEED79B-F672-41A1-A8EE-4A54335878EA_zpsbyjdjxsk.jpg.html?sort=3&o=0

Today I got back 2 more ST successes, bringing me to 10/47 so far. Colby Lewis signed 1 card, and the top right corner was bent...shocker.... Dustin Ackley signed 1 4x6 and 2 cards, wasn't expecting this back until next year.

03-07-2014, 04:13 PM
I have gotten quite a few great successes, Bart Starr, Gale Sayers, Chuck Bednarik, Dick Butkus, etc. Today only had one autograph, but it may very well top the rest of those. I figured it was coming back, but I am still speechless regardless. I'll let the picture speak for itself. http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/E009FE05-514A-479A-BC75-FA8AB751F6A3_zpst2dzxtxa.jpg.html?sort=3&o=0

Had some pretty good successes these last few days. Monday brought a big surprise as I got back the card and 4x6 I sent to Clayton Kershaw this ST expecting to get it back next year. http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/36098352-8D92-4256-AF17-C3B619B347D2_zpsavlcljhb.jpg.html?sort=3&o=3 Yesterday brought 2 more baseball successes, one ST from Chase Headley who signed a card and a 4x6 http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/397F496D-2B2B-4A2C-B998-4CB9BF8AE39F_zps0tt4q8nt.jpg.html?sort=3&o=0 . Ron Blomberg signed an 87T in ballpoint pen for $5 http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/59EA7B49-082A-4FB9-93AB-FAD4DCD9A275_zpsrh7kozhi.jpg.html?sort=3&o=1 nice success from the first ever DH in baseball. Today was a huge shock, living in MI we got pounded by snow, but we got mail anyways and Dick Groat signed a 4x6 w/ NL MVP 1960 as requested, a card, and 3 IC, one inscribed with his college baseball and basketball HOF years as requested. Great signer, and very happy to get all those inscriptions, felt kind of bad asking for all of them but he is a great signer like many older ball players. http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/93AB4E6D-3C59-4D0A-B370-4D547F8A606B_zpssqsenvfh.jpg.html?sort=3&o=2

Sweet Returns.. Love the Leyland. Very Cool that Andre Reed adds the HOF inscription now to his returns. Bet he has been itching to do that for sometime. You should copy & paste the " IMG " link in your photobucket to the forum instead of the html link. That way the photos show up on your page like this.

Nice thread! Morgana? I had forgotten all about her until I had seen your success! Wonder how that act would work now? Lady runs on field and tries to kiss superstar baseball player. She is tackled by 6 security guards and hauled off to jail. She is released as long as she agrees to never again step foot in the stadium! Highlights on Sports Center? No they would be smart enough to cut away to another part of stadium and TV announcers complain that the idiot running onto the field is wasting their time and might make them late for their flight out of town! There are times that a fan misses something as simple as Morgana and an era that has passed!

04-12-2014, 06:25 PM
Thanks! I don't think we will ever see anything like her again. Fans hardly get 3 feet on the field before they are being chased, which I suppose isn't a bad thing since most field-crashers are just looking for 15 minutes of fame and don't add to the game unlike Morganna.

Ronny, keep your eyes open for a few items that a hockey autograph guy like. Do not send anything back and should you think you might want to... Pat-It-Forward to another member!

04-18-2014, 11:13 PM
Oddly enough that you brought up hockey. Bernie Parent signed 2/2 for me with no fee. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/04/2417.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/05E16839-3799-485F-8BA2-81BD9DAC80C5_zpsauxjitet.jpg.html)

04-26-2014, 02:03 PM
Fist day with returns since the 18th. Quite the drought but it is over finally. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/04/3596.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/A4960EE4-2A4C-44D8-A9C8-41725C420E60_zpsi5i1mcx6.jpg.html) Harry Carson signed 2 4x6 and an IC for me. Added the HOF06 inscription on request to the one photo. The other return I had today was Al Arbour, who in exchange for my two stamps sent me 4 of his own. The only problem is that his stamps are not postage, and are really bad looking "autographs". https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/04/3597.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/234CEF9B-B0F5-44E9-B6CB-344B1E790AF5_zpsepx9cdym.jpg.html) Really bad smearing, lines from the outside of the stamps, etc. Oh well, it happens.

I hope to see some full mailboxes here soon seeing as how I have sent out around 10-15 in the past week to 2 weeks. Those include people like Bobby Richardson, Kathy Ireland, Muggsy Bogues, Koji Uehara, Peter Bourjos, and others.

04-28-2014, 04:31 PM
I seem to have been rewarded for having about a week of nothing with 3 returns today. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/04/4102.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/EA10E9B6-0C77-400E-A105-4F64EAD9615C_zpswdklvr4j.jpg.html) Bobby Richardson signed 1/2 4x6 photos and added 60 WS MVP to one. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/04/4103.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/DBC1BE03-1113-49A8-8774-FB95D6287A7E_zpsylimamun.jpg.html) Next up Henri Richard signed 2/2 4x6 photos, plus 2 IC AND threw in his own oversized card. Great haul from a great player! Finally my favorite success https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/04/4104.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/9D71B27D-3424-47E6-9E93-A20B66C41BCB_zpssa4xzzrl.jpg.html) The one and only Don Cherry signed 2/2 photos in silver and threw in an advertisement of his restaurant from him and Blue (his dog).

05-04-2014, 06:31 PM
Slow week since my last post. Only one return in 5 days. If you are only going to get one it might as well be good, and a Hall of Famer certainly fits the bill. Joe Schmidt, former Lions MLB signed 2/2 for me. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/05/521.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/250013B5-A67E-4221-96F0-B06B127A8583_zpsvcpbjssd.jpg.html) The only way to end a drought is to send a lot more out. 4 more in the mail on Monday - Scooter Gennett, Johnny Lujack, Johnny Lattner, and Jim Craig

05-06-2014, 07:25 PM
3 returns today. I'll start with the failure: Tommy John charges $15. I had seen some come back signed w/o fees but not mine I guess, oh well. former Red Wings goalie and workhorse Tim Cheveldae...

05-06-2014, 08:11 PM
Tommy's ex-wife has been signing mail sent to this address for $15:
6202 Seton House Lane
Charlotte,NC 28277

05-06-2014, 10:39 PM
I believe that is where I sent. Dodged a bullet on that one. The handwriting on the note seems more feminine than not too, but that may just be confirmation bias on my part.

05-12-2014, 09:02 PM
No mail since last Monday. Only 2 today, lets hope I start getting more here. It was a HOF kind of day again, Johnny Lattner signed 4/2 and added Heisman and CHOF inscriptions to all! https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/05/1846.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/2014-05/F7442CE1-F152-4D51-9294-9DBA715DEA84_zpsju3bnil8.jpg.html) The only NFL HOF Punter Ray Guy signed 2/2 with HOF 2014. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/05/1847.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/2014-05/D291BBD9-A16A-4669-AF9B-B0D5F797680D_zpsugawot1a.jpg.html)

05-17-2014, 06:46 PM
Actually got mail yesterday. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/05/2500.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/1F7C9253-1DAE-43CB-9FFE-29340FE19252_zpsqcoefkc4.jpg.html) Randall Cunningham signed 1/1 for $5. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/05/2501.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/6E8B91ED-9EEB-4641-8DF9-0BBDF6595D56_zpszfnon6u4.jpg.html) Gary Player signed an email request for me.

05-20-2014, 10:11 PM
Back to back days of something in the mail! https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/05/3053.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/2014-05/C9EDF01F-C01E-40B3-A4BA-6F3B62E5D7BB_zpsdukwfjnu.jpg.html) First off, Brad Park singed 1 4x6 and 1 card, plus an IC for me. Personalized all. My favorite success today comes after my last try came back unsigned asking for $50. He recently started signing for less and even free lately so I figured why not? https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/05/3054.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/3D60F9EF-360C-467B-96F0-9E2393E3113D_zpsvp38igum.jpg.html) Goose Gossage signed my 4x6 (Great picture) and added HOF 08 for $10. Great success, glad to get him as I failed last time.

05-21-2014, 09:42 PM
Today brought one of my favorite autographs ever. First off I got one TTM today. Rick Reuschel signed 3/3 and added Big Daddy to two of them as requested. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/05/3156.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/5527C416-D4E2-4FED-9462-EACCB9945A7F_zpsjlb5nmub.jpg.html) The best one today is someone I guarantee nobody on here has heard of. My calculus teacher used to play professional baseball in the 90's. He was drafted by the Florida Marlins but got hurt early into his pro career so he never had a chance to make it big. He has brought this up a few times, so I went out and found the only card ever made of him, a 1994 Fleer ProCards. I bought it for 50 cents. Today was the last day of the semester so at the end of class I brought it up to him and he actually signed it! https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/05/3157.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/2014-05/4AF2557B-2868-43CA-8C66-9A5994D7D4DB_zpsexfwa3ud.jpg.html)

05-22-2014, 01:59 AM
that is pretty great! i've enjoyed following along - do you have a standard method of doing this? do you hand write or type a letter? regular pwe w/sase?

05-22-2014, 01:58 PM
Thanks! I always hand write my letters and use PWE. Normally I use index cards for protection. If you write please do not bend on your envelopes the cards/photos don't normally get dinged too bad or at all.

05-27-2014, 01:06 PM
I'll start with my last return from last week. James Earl Jones signed 2 4x6 and 2 IC for me. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/05/3788.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/43A238A9-2DC0-42D2-8C33-748A3A5B5C1A_zpsnqqcpgnq.jpg.html) Today brought 2 in the mail for me. Fred Lynn returned cards unsigned but included his blue IC, no complaints here. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/05/3789.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/96F1E56A-510C-4A18-828E-F89753FD7980_zps1rqbudfn.jpg.html) Finally TV star Dawn Wells of Gilligan's Island fame signed 1 4x6 for me. It was postmarked from VA however https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/05/3790.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/17694B96-141D-4E99-98F7-D81960331109_zpskvazsh3d.jpg.html)

05-27-2014, 03:36 PM
i LOVE that she put SOS!

06-07-2014, 03:00 PM
Got mail on Thursday and now Today. Hopefully this trend continues next week and I don't have many more droughts. Thursday brought Phoenix Suns legend Dan Majerle who signed 2 4x6 for me https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/06/684.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/2014-06/9B86B2D8-8CA0-4BF0-B718-DC6D871ED645_zpsb9jo7wth.jpg.html). Today Lee Guetterman signed 3/3 cards for me https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/06/685.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/5226E0F7-33F8-4A10-AF41-47E250E66ADC_zpsqeyljlmz.jpg.html) and my favorite coach of all time signed my 4x6 and the 2 IC I used for protection https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/06/686.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/A8EE985B-EFB3-4C28-9179-2A0958A10A58_zpsdnoqwbqv.jpg.html) he personalized all 3, added the SB inscription to 2 and Ring of Honor 2010 to 2, while adding a bible verse to the 3rd.

06-22-2014, 10:36 PM
It has been REALLY slow lately. I have quite a bit of stuff out that I should hopefully see back soon. Since my last post I have gotten a whopping 3 ttms.. First is HHOFer Leonard "Red" Kelly https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/06/3492.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/D0F130E8-789A-4008-8EC6-BCCD05EA16E3_zpsdvfslk60.jpg.html) Inscriptions galore with this one, added his HOF year and "8 Stanley Cups" to all 4, but signed one "8 Hockey Cups" instead of "8 Stanley Cups". Great return from a great Red Wing! Next was Bret Saberhagen who signed a 89T for $5 https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/06/3493.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/BDC9E085-E98B-4CF5-A58E-00FB5CA7591F_zpsdvfnphkl.jpg.html) Billy Bean signed 2 4x6 (Both smeared) and 2 IC for me, returned in his own SASE not mine... oh well, no harm in that. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/06/3494.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/F6450950-9FE2-47DD-83C6-415A3049C69A_zps3gwxng3j.jpg.html) I hope to see Harrison Barnes, Koji Uehara, and Dave Righetti among others soon! I am also sending out 6 more to NASCAR drivers tomorrow. Hopefully those along with my last batch come rolling in soon!

06-27-2014, 10:55 PM
On a roll lately, need to keep sending stuff out to keep up! Yesterday brought NFL and USFL great Herschel Walker, everyone seems to be getting him back all at once. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/06/4183.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/3FFB37A9-1D0C-4EA4-985C-5B146168C1F8_zpsku5d0prg.jpg.html) The ink from the signature and personalization seem to be different however... Today brought Steve Fisher (email) https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/06/4184.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/69A2A883-D4C6-4FE1-B955-CDB1525C91EF_zpskfuyjeke.jpg.html) and former reliever Jeff Reardon https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/06/4185.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/170467E0-2AF7-4FE3-9D85-C54DFA88BD7C_zpskpnvott7.jpg.html)

07-01-2014, 01:07 PM
Yesterday brought Norman Ullman signing 2 4x6, 2 IC, and he added his own smaller photo. He added his #7 and HOF 1982 inscriptions. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/07/57.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/7596E5DC-20B9-427D-A23D-25F6DBA3693A_zpsebe6vvdi.jpg.html)

07-03-2014, 04:43 PM
https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/07/215.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/1779E3FD-696B-48EF-92B4-515FF93CE91F_zpsyvfrko25.jpg.html) Dave Righetti signed 87 and 89 Topps cards and a 4x6 of his no hitter.

07-10-2014, 03:50 PM
2 returns and 1 failure today. Failure is from Gordie Howe, it was RTSed and unable to forward. Mike Timlin signed 2/2 for me in blue sharpie. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/07/1345.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/236640B8-42A3-48AF-8701-782AF4492192_zpsnfbhbefb.jpg.html) Marty Brennaman signed 4/2 for me in blue sharpie also. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/07/1346.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/A622A264-79B3-4963-9533-63C3E53FB456_zpspufyxvxf.jpg.html)

07-16-2014, 03:47 PM
Since my last post I have gotten 3 TTMs in. Saturday brought racing legend Mario Andretti who signed 2 4x6 photos for me. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/07/1988.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/346D2D31-84DA-48A4-BE1D-550D561CABE9_zpswivmaoa7.jpg.html) Yesterday brought former AL MVP Bobby Shantz who signed 2 4x6 photos for me and added 8 Gold Gloves and 1952 AL MVP to both. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/07/1989.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/A8011277-CA7F-4B77-8B69-0F1D92A055FD_zpswo7u8em7.jpg.html) Today brough Buddha, James Edwards. He signed 2/2 4x6 photos for me and added his number to both. On one he inscribed "Jordan Rules" as requested. For anyone who doesn't get that, it was how the Pistons played defense vs. Chicago. They would double team MJ frequently, and play him physical at all costs. They would stop him from scoring but let anyone else do the damage since Jordan was far and away the biggest offensive threat. The Jordan Rules allowed the Bad Boys to beat Chicago in the playoffs earlier in Jordan's career. The 30 for 30 on the Bad Boys talks more about it, and I would recommend that documentary to any sports or basketball fan. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/07/1990.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/7EA3D4FB-52D4-4C68-9BC1-B9B17908475A_zpsjcd0pkel.jpg.html) https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/07/1991.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/EB1D7E08-7A96-4D0F-926B-DCC751B72FA1_zpsngtzpmf4.jpg.html)

07-18-2014, 04:12 PM
Had my best day in quite awhile today. Starting off, Mike Stanton signed a 4x6 and a card for me in blue. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/07/2171.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/8CF067C6-6418-438B-A954-E6F45CBD523F_zpsppa7948o.jpg.html) My second best success is Don Larsen, he signed both 4x6 photos in blue and added his WSPG date ($10). https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/07/2172.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/B7CED6E7-F29A-4730-9AE2-0661B58141EE_zpsikc5z0zt.jpg.html) Finally to keep with the baseball theme, Al Kaline signed my 4x6 photo and added HOF 80, it would have looked better in blue than black, but for $10 I can't complain one bit. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/07/2173.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/AA50C8F5-9999-4658-B1CF-A4FEB991CFB9_zps7fuiklvb.jpg.html)

07-20-2014, 06:30 PM
Yesterday brought in Roy Sievers, the man to win the first AL Rookie of the Year when the award was given to one player per league. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/07/2317.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/CC8881CE-0A01-4560-9CD0-0237C3AC61D4_zpsahaw379g.jpg.html)He signed both 4x6 photos for me but didn't add his ROY inscription which is why I sent to him, but 2 autographs from a good ball player like him is still really nice no matter how you slice it.

07-23-2014, 12:08 AM
2 days 2 HOF successes. Dick Duff signed 2 4x6 for me and added 2 of his own! https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/07/2539.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/2014-07/D1B3E2DD-0A9C-429E-B3BE-F45A4471E52E_zpsswfnlq9s.jpg.html) Rollie Fingers signed 1 4x6 for me w/ $10 donation and he added his HOF year. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/07/2540.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/0487AEE6-3D64-45F9-89C8-D42552B60859_zpsik7uvafz.jpg.html)

Stuffed maibox today. 4 returns (3 successes). First the failure. Andre Dawson has a note now saying how he needs at least $20. It only mentions making a donation though and nothing about autographs, but I'm sure it is implied.https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/07/2738.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/81456298-2997-46CA-9DEC-895172B25F89_zpst3o8p06t.jpg.html) Next up Jimmy Key signed 1 card for me. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/07/2738.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/81456298-2997-46CA-9DEC-895172B25F89_zpst3o8p06t.jpg.html) Pat Neshek also signed 4 4x6 photos for me, nice return from an All-Star. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/07/2739.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/7AA621B2-0602-4BFD-B8D8-5247A65BFE7F_zpsjzaehp3k.jpg.html) Finally new HOFer Tony La Russa signed 2 4x6 for me via the DBacks for no donation. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/07/2740.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/50C844A5-18F6-4D7C-BDD4-E2D396F76E40_zpsdopm1qrl.jpg.html)

Fun fact, he was mentioned in the movie Airplane! when Ted Striker's inner thoughts said "Now pinch-hitting for Pedro Borbon, Manny Mota" Airplane! is easily my favorite movie. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/07/2854.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/7BE2DF2F-CCE2-454D-BF08-C7131AB96762_zpsarcpfdsq.jpg.html) Lastly Calgary Flames great and fan-favorite Theoren Fleury signed 4 cards for me. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/07/2855.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/8218081D-EA85-48A6-A975-C27D0D88C9D7_zpsce6guhch.jpg.html)

That's funny... I thought of that line from the movie when I pulled my Mota return from my P.O. (Same day you got yours)

Great thread.

I also sent out around 20 or so requests this past week, including a unique request from an Indianapolis Colt that I hope to share with you all. Should be an eventful next few weeks of returns!

08-04-2014, 05:56 PM
2 returns since last post. Koji Uehara signed 2 4x6 photos in nearly 3 months, long time for Koji, but well worth the wait. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/08/498.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/1DFDAA75-CB19-402C-ADD5-9B4D7D0F0850_zpsopkcn59m.jpg.html) Dan Plesac signed 3 cards in black. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/08/499.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/A25B9693-5C3F-4299-83A4-190EC7CD9FEE_zpsxjzud6hr.jpg.html)

08-07-2014, 06:32 PM
Nice returns lately. Yesterday Ken Retzer signed 2 4x6, 2 IC, and sent 5 others 8.5x11 sheets of paper, 4 of those signed for a whopping 8 autographs. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/08/826.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/D6D50A3C-BCF1-4963-9DF6-7E4508706D1D_zpsaj1o62td.jpg.html) He added the date he caught Kennedy's first pitch to 1 4x6. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/08/827.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/47DC555D-A67D-4F62-AA31-C7B1CB8A49A7_zps7dw87ijg.jpg.html) https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/08/828.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/BF7E3523-DE67-4520-B12D-7F0AA09ADD2C_zpsrnall0wa.jpg.html) https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/08/829.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/164B71FA-57EC-4169-9A7C-05F0824F2A73_zpsj04m8e8n.jpg.html) picture of him with 2 teammates from the 100,000th MLB game. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/08/830.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/10626114-5BAF-4F7C-BEB0-8886ED5A1FC8_zpsugxueytj.jpg.html) https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/08/831.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/BDE1DAF3-2304-4314-BB6B-C3EA29B20C53_zpsqqmidjid.jpg.html) He even offered to call me. I don't think I'll take him up on that offer, but I will probably write back to him thanking him for all of the stuff he added, and asking him about some of those stories he alluded to. He says he enjoys talking with fans, and I'd love to learn some history and read some great stories.
Brett Butler signed 4 cards for me in blue sharpie. Nice return from a great role model, Brett was diagnosed with cancer towards the end of his career, but he fought it and was able to play another season and end his career on his terms, not cancer's. My mom is a cancer survivor, and I love to see stories like that where others overcome cancer. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/08/832.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/6052DD97-A6DC-4244-A798-1A16B93F0E64_zpsgcz6ir1r.jpg.html) Finally I recieved a 4x6 photo from Mickey Lolich today. Mr. Lolich also lives in Michigan, so the return was quicker than average, but I sent it out 4 days ago on the 4th. Between then he recieved, signed, and mailed my picture back out and it made it to my mailbox in only 3 business days. I paid $10 for the autograph. Mrs. Lolich thanked me for the donation as well. Lolich is the artist of arguably the greatest World Series pitching performance. In 1968 he started Game 2 vs the Cardinals who featured Lou Brock, Bob Gibson, Orlando Cepeda, and Tim McCarver among others, he pitched a complete game and got the win to tie the series at 1 all. Then in Game 5 he took the ball again and pitched another complete game win to bring the Tigers to 3-2 in the series. Game 6 saw the Tigers tie the series at 3. Game 7 Lolich took the ball again, against Bob Gibson in winner take all. Lolich pitched ANOTHER complete game win as Detroit won the series. He was named WS MVP for his 3 CG Wins. Only Randy Johnson in 2001 has had 3 wins in one series since, Johnson didn't have 3 CG though. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/08/833.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/C77EF145-3AC8-49F5-A334-DEBEA93ED1E7_zpsyeegcnpj.jpg.html)

08-20-2014, 04:07 PM
No returns for two straight days. I will not be posting for awhile and when I do it will be intermittent due to college. So every post will have a bunch of autographs I hope!

09-10-2014, 09:16 PM
Long time no see. I haven't been home to open my mail yet, but my school had a speaker come in and talk to us. Coach Herman Boone, coach of the TC Williams Titans, the team that inspired Remember the Titans gave a speech on Social Justice. Afterwards he took pictures with us and signed autographs! I got him on my event ticket and a I got a photo with him. He is a great person and stayed for everyone, even when asked if he wanted to leave earlier. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/09/1455.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/30FB33ED-8547-4BBF-98DF-46EA83D54807_zpstnjmxyi9.jpg.html) https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/09/1456.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/2A122F40-372C-4BEC-8F62-3CDBB1779E3C_zpstmw0zh6o.jpg.html)

Got home this weekend and had a few things waiting for me. I'll save the best for last, because if it is what I think it is, it's the best return I've had, ever.
https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/10/1644.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/ED023E41-0385-44A0-B747-30E5B8C6F5D1_zpsh1fgmnya.jpg.html) Thankfully this Tom Chambers return didn't have the same effect on my mailbox as it did on his victims in the pictures, eventually they caught on as shown by Sir Charles getting out of the way.
The next great Colts pass rusher Bjoern Werner signed 2 4x6 and a RC for me. He has looked great this season so far with Mathis out. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/10/1645.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/2835847C-7DA8-4B2A-8FFC-E9EA89EE91E9_zpswz6qgqf1.jpg.html)
https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/10/1646.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/82ADBDC6-91ED-4B3D-80BA-BFBAFC3109FF_zpsc5xdpukp.jpg.html) DBacks closer Addison Reed signed 1 card for me, long wait, but worth it for a young closer with potential like him.
https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/10/1647.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/ABA1E2C4-36D7-4469-BD58-E9929DDA0813_zpsqx7uogyi.jpg.html) 2 Josh Hamilton returns of 3 send outs. I'll have to send a few more next year too it seems.
https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/10/1648.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/78DEC559-721D-4E4D-9BCD-8DDA779E887D_zpscfh3fbc9.jpg.html) Hockey is my favorite sport, so a Hall of Famer from my favorite team like Ted Lindsay wouldn't be my best return except for some rare occurances, this is one. Terrible Ted signed 2 4x6, 2 IC, and his typical pamphlet for charity.
Now for the big return.
https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/10/1649.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/2159E4DB-05C5-4BAC-9940-CF1722679A09_zpsybg2xpak.jpg.html) These returns have been questioned lately, with good reason. This one looks different like all of them have looked, which is good. The handwriting seems shaky too, which I assume Mr. Hockey would have. I am cautiously optimistic on this one, since I feel Mr. Hockey is the greatest hockey player ever.

10-20-2014, 01:48 PM
Awesome Colt's successes! Congrats and keep sending em out!

Awesome Colt's successes! Congrats and keep sending em out!

Thanks! I sent out around 25 or so yesterday.

11-27-2014, 02:42 PM
Had a decent stack of envelopes waiting for me when I came home.
First, Kevin Dyson signed 2 4x6 and added "Music City Miracle" to the one.

John Force signed 2 4x6 and added 16x to both. The one is going out to his daughters to sign.

The former coach of that school from the south signed 2 4x6, 2 IC, and added a signed card.
https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/11/2501.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/79608DC5-9431-4041-98B2-4F40B1878720_zpsiaupbzxi.jpg.html)

Kirk Cousins signed 3 4x6 and a Topps Chrome rookie.
https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/11/2503.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/06180DF4-8807-4278-8D1C-84116B28B253_zpsmdcragh7.jpg.html)

Ok, so my photobucket seems to be messing with my links I post here, so sorry for the duplicate pictures. If anyone wants to see picture from the ones that didn't show up, I can try to post them individually.

12-12-2014, 02:52 AM
Back from school again, just finished the semester and came home to 5 envelopes. 5 different sports and 5 great returns.

Clint Dempsey, American captain and hero in the World Cup. Not going to get much better than this in US Mens Soccer.

12-17-2014, 11:26 PM
2 returns I logged in the TTMM and haven't shared here yet.
https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/12/1897.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/01B47CC6-EFD7-4536-AA51-A3FD27695B25_zpsgsvfjfdu.jpg.html) Wade Boggs again, only have one more set of photos for him.
https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2014/12/1898.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/B52704F7-698F-4647-ACFC-DD136B7E04CA_zpstwojmkl8.jpg.html) Tanner Foust, famous racer and co-host of the American TopGear, one of my favorite shows.

01-03-2015, 06:44 PM
It has been awhile since my last update, mostly because of a lack of returns, but I have a lot of letters written to go out soon.
Today brought Greg Biffle who signed 2 cards and a ticket stub from a race he won. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2015/01/215.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/44F74DBD-1DEE-48C4-9EA3-4AB21E7A6DBD_zpsnqgddwfq.jpg.html)

Billy Joel returned a signed 8x10 instead of my 4x6, not sure on legitimacy though https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2015/01/217.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/6F5743FC-D4B1-4631-94C1-FCF557194358_zpsmngbsrhs.jpg.html)
Darryl Sydor on 4 cards https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2015/01/218.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/BB2A0860-A311-4A63-A50D-3A1074747A91_zpsuccfheoe.jpg.html)
and finally John Olerud on a card and 4x6.

03-07-2015, 05:16 PM
Quite a few returns since I have been able to open my mail. This should be quite a big recap.
Lets get started with an email return from Penn and Teller who signed an 8x10.
https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2015/03/923.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/4A94DFD1-D6C0-47C2-A300-AE8B0C538AE8_zpsle34sxky.jpg.html)
Tom Watson signed 2 4x6 for me, that makes 3 golf returns now I believe.https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2015/03/924.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/BB96C46E-FB32-4200-AA52-F0F23E1CFB4C_zps055alqr3.jpg.html)
This next return was one of my favorites, Mike Farrell from M*A*S*H signed 2 4x6 for me.
https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2015/03/925.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/FF900D34-A348-43C7-8427-1365E5063A55_zpsoawznses.jpg.html)
Next up, former Colt Jimmy Orr signed 2 4x6 for me and added a bunch of inscriptions of when he played on UGA, BAL, and PIT.
https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2015/03/926.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/E0732F90-7FA6-4E83-9F0F-EF8C8C59D35C_zpskmxyfdhd.jpg.html)
Another former Colt Bert Jones signed 2 4x6 for me, my second time getting him, but wanted to add some 4x6 to my collection as well.
https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2015/03/927.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/E8E0E9A1-4D17-4EA9-805D-BD3C9B019AA9_zpsai80zvzs.jpg.html)
Next up is Wade Boggs....again. Boggs is a great signer and with so many great pictures of him I couldn't resist sending a few times. Boggs is someone who is well worth the small fee.
https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2015/03/928.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/37D92D21-88DE-4C28-9DE4-1340FAFFA745_zpsdo8de5ti.jpg.html)
John Stockton signed 2 4x6 in black for me.
https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2015/03/929.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/600444B9-7DDB-4804-8BE8-79840EF87265_zps8yxrh5em.jpg.html)
This next one may be my favorite, Brandon Stokley signed 2 4x6 for me. Stokley was my favorite as a kid, the first jersey I ever bought. I have been lucky enough to get him a couple times over the years, in fact he was my very first TTM autograph from way back in Elementary School. He personalized one and added "Go Colts!".
https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2015/03/930.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/B47101CF-8E72-4982-B935-816735A0A227_zpsooxeego4.jpg.html)
Next up is a string of great NHL coaches. First is Mike Babcock, who is probably the best right now. He signed 2/2 in black for me.
https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2015/03/931.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/4B71CB06-539D-419E-A9DA-51E28D756420_zpsuy6v8ww9.jpg.html)
The man who was Detroit's coach two coaches ago, Scotty Bowman signed 2 4x6 in blue.
https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2015/03/932.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/E2FA6B89-3359-4C4D-A655-F593AC76E4B5_zpsvelaqv5o.jpg.html)
Joel Quennville also signed a 4x6 for me, but I forgot to take a picture of that one.
Terry Steinbach signed 3 cards for a $6 donation to his scholarship fund, a great cause.
https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2015/03/933.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/A6E81770-DC77-4D70-AB3B-D96FDD5578B6_zpscj4omtda.jpg.html) Mr. Steinbach also has a very nice signature.
Another NASCAR return came in as well, Matt Kenseth signed 3 cards in black.
https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2015/03/934.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/A114DC00-40F0-403B-A2E7-ED6B38508AC1_zps2z1mnikj.jpg.html)
NHL legend and pioneer Peter Stastny signed 1/1 for me, he was one of the first Europeans to come join the NHL with his brothers.
https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2015/03/935.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/E0BBEEAE-EB43-4AF2-A543-41C3CD37283D_zpsaldrodxo.jpg.html)
Finally, Matt Hasselbeck signed 3 cards for me as well. He may have one of the best autographs in the league, a nice big and bold signature in blue.
https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2015/03/936.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/0F45B32F-F060-46B4-932D-28AF70D5B616_zps7j8ftzdi.jpg.html)

03-07-2015, 08:40 PM
Those are awesome. I don't have a lot but would love to trade for one of your wade boggs photos. I'll send you a extras list I have.

03-07-2015, 08:52 PM
I have one I'd be willing to trade, the Red Sox one from the top of this page I could trade, I am a Yankees fan so the less Boston stuff the better!

03-13-2015, 04:28 PM
2 envelopes today, 1 TTM and 1 Trade. First off I got my Charlie Hough cards back after a long wait. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2015/03/1535.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/85E3301D-02DE-4DA2-80A6-57D0173E0A7F_zpsd1vqw1nh.jpg.html)
And for the trade I got a Paul O'Neill card from Smitty5 for one of my many Boggs 4x6 photos, he even added an extra Derek Jeter rookie, great experience for my first trade on here. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2015/03/1536.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/50027557-9C8A-4C28-8183-86D0DFEB5173_zpsutreychi.jpg.html)

Great success from one of the best in the game. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2015/05/828.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/194C5D54-CA71-4B19-B4FD-B7533EA4AE55_zps6l3dloxn.jpg.html) HOFer Steve Largent signed a 4x6 in black.

So for some reason I cannot buy a TTM return lately, however I do have some trades coming in and a shipment from COMC that aren't TTM related, but I may post to have something in this thread here. Anyways, went to Tigers vs. Pirates tonight and bought a 2014 AL Central Celebration champagne cork MLB Authentic for $5! https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2015/07/194.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/8D32AA96-4F66-414A-8FAB-D5862E986F63_zpsdtyrrt2q.jpg.html) I'll end this with my only TTM return in basically a month, Hilary Knight of the USA Women's Hockey team. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2015/07/195.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/698BD101-2081-4804-9913-9A114CAD4890_zpsfrblvad1.jpg.html)

07-15-2015, 04:53 PM
2 recent returns. Firstly, Steelers Chairman and HoFer signed 2 photos and an IC for me. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2015/07/1313.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/3EACE21B-1756-45B4-9C4C-D3DBC2F127C2_zpsclcwlp1n.jpg.html) Secondly, former Red Wings Pat Verbeek "The Little Ball of Hate" signed 3/3 cards for me in black. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2015/07/1314.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/13590EC1-0F34-4CCB-8798-F4E9FBD2D62A_zpskeo4ldlu.jpg.html)

Today brought 2 returns, one is pretty epic. Firstly Sean Burke signed 3 cards for me in black. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2015/07/1680.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/5103DEA5-019D-4DD9-8F52-06BFFA11E2E7_zpsmr1ip2r9.jpg.html) Lastly we have 2 Time SB MVP Eli Manning. He signed a 2005 Topps (which look great signed by the way) and a 4x6 with Archie and Peyton. I will be sending to both, so fingers crossed because I am 0/2 with Archie and 1/1 with Peyton. I still have Eli and Peyton on cards so it wont be a huge loss to not get it back. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2015/07/1681.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/B5F80E5A-EF55-422D-8576-21F11B5F3FB2_zpsx7bnafrr.jpg.html)

08-06-2015, 03:41 PM
Only 1 today, but it is the coolest one in awhile. I saw on some other forums where a guy going by ConRyl and another steeltowninwv were sending coaches pictures of a chalkboard and asking them to write plays. I figured I'd take a shot with about 10 or so. I got back Jon Gruden who drew out Spider 2 Y Banana, which is one of his favorite plays. He likes to talk about it especially when the Colts are on MNF as they run it. He also signed 2 IC with XXXVII Champs. His wife also included a short note as well. Gruden is the man!

08-08-2015, 11:32 AM
That is absolutely awesome. Definitely one of the coolest ways I've seen to get autos from coaches. Definitely might borrow this idea.

08-09-2015, 07:37 PM
I hope you do borrow it! You already get a ton of nice 8x10s in as it is.

2 returns from the past few days. Firstly, a Mike Vanderjagt rts.
Commissioner Rob Manfred signed my ICs, I saw he was sending balls to people so I sent some IC and thought I might get a ball, but I didn't want to ask for a ball as I don't feel comfortable asking for bigger items like that all the time. Regardless I now have 3 commissioners and I hope to add Selig soon. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2015/08/775.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/FFF50BCB-7567-473F-8C2E-79F26E240744_zpsi0epg3u8.jpg.html)

Next up we have Olympic Gold Medalist Kurt Angle, he signed 2 4x6 for me. Not only did he win a gold medal with a broken freaking neck, but he was and still is an amazing entertainer in the pro wrestling business. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2015/08/776.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/BE7ECA9B-BED2-48C7-B112-1609813E542C_zpsmtfdvhxs.jpg.html)

Also got back 2 trades these past 2 days. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2015/08/1112.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/B0C65BF2-1791-4CFE-8816-70C03B721587_zps5efgykhv.jpg.html) I traded some cards for these, not ttm.

08-14-2015, 06:32 PM

08-14-2015, 06:55 PM
That is really cool, glad you started the idea and it spread to me! If you don't mind me asking, who are some of the people you got? I was trying to brainstorm some ideas, I have Mora Sr. in the mail with Corso and Seifert that need to be sent out.

08-14-2015, 07:21 PM
cowher wisenhunt and jack del rio signed but no play.....bobby Bowden....rob ryan..bruce arians...steve mariuchi....ron rivera....tony dungy...jim harbuagh....new falcons coach...forget his name right off......bengals coach...forget his name right off as well.......reves....malarkey..

08-14-2015, 07:32 PM
Thanks! I might have to send to some of those guys.

08-15-2015, 11:04 PM

08-27-2015, 01:39 PM
Figured out where Photobucket was hiding the links so pictures are a go again!
Bob Lilly signed 1 4x6 for me for $5. He added Hall of Fame 80. But as I found out in Alf's thread it isn't him actually, but the photo is connected with him through it being the cover photo of his book. Oh well, not a huge deal, but it does bother me a bit. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2015/08/2543.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/51591AB5-F385-4262-8666-648A142B7196_zpsp9d9rayt.jpg.html)
Then I got 3/3 from Pat Neshek but there is smearing on all 3 unfortunately and no ASG inscription on the one as requested, still happy that Mr. Neshek signs so well for his fans! Paul Hornung signed 1/2 4x6 but signed an IC as well, there is also some smearing there but a for a HoFer I won't complain.

08-27-2015, 06:34 PM
One final return before I leave for school again. Ken Daneyko signed 2/2 and added Mr. Devil to both cards. This return clocks in at just under 1 year and 8 months!!! This is why I will never mark a success as a failure on here unless I actually get it back RTS or unsigned. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2015/08/2589.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/30529807-767A-49E1-BDD9-7A763BBA7170_zpsvlticc7z.jpg.html)

08-28-2015, 09:30 AM
Awesome Daneyko return. He's always great to Devils' fan here at games so I'm not surprised that he signed his mail, even if it took awhile. He comes across as a really good and genuine guy every time I meet him.

09-03-2015, 03:48 PM
Getting back Gordie Howe and Peyton Manning ttm were both pretty great, but I have a new favorite autograph that I purchased off cyberer. Pretty much my most wanted autograph on my list. A Bryce Harper signed 4x6 that was obtained IP during a minor league game before Bryce hit the bigs, even still has his rookie sig! https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2015/09/285.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/48E0F4B2-1AAD-41A4-8ECD-DCE50F3DF23A_zpsbv7k1tbd.jpg.html)

https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2015/09/616.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/mitchell_zpsnyzfqyks.jpg.html) There is the signed cover page, but I recieved a full copy of the whole report! Blown away by this success.

At least I thought it would be my best, but I went and topped it today! HUGE success from Peyton Manning today to complete my Manning family photo. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2015/09/933.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/234EE638-CE2D-4B51-AC3E-796B211D18CA_zpsno1ueeda.jpg.html)

Hall of Fame Defenseman Paul Coffey signed two cards for me.

12-23-2015, 02:22 AM
Vince Papale signed a photo for me and added one of his own.

02-13-2016, 01:34 PM
Decent sized recap today. Had my returns mailed to me and opened 13 yesterday.
First, I purchased a signed Jean Beliveau card off eBay to complete a set I was working on (2012-13 Score The Franchise Original Six) I will be posting a picture of all 6 when I get them together!
Now for the TTMs:
Firstly, Jen Selter signed 1/2 for me https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2016/02/1516.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/3CC13F48-85AA-4509-A5CB-2F9B60DC1686_zps1xlplvbj.jpg.html)
Then Teddy Long signed 3 for me, the "Holla Holla Playa" made my day honestly. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2016/02/1517.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/B11E5994-6082-41B0-9543-E318A898FBC9_zpson8mvvmi.jpg.html)
George Seifert signed 1/2, unfortunately he didn't draw a play on the chalkboard photo for that mini-project I am doing. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2016/02/1518.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/8B5D18A2-823F-463B-A97F-2F11ECE285DD_zpsllrki6la.jpg.html)
Jim Devellano signed 2 4x6 and 2 IC for me, one photo in pen, the other in pink expo marker? https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2016/02/1519.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/CE5BCE9A-F1FF-4576-9EE8-46A054E41AC9_zpstn7p4dme.jpg.html)
Ryan Miller signed a pretty sweet photo for me https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2016/02/1520.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/C1DE5920-101B-4DE0-AF01-C3BA90BE405A_zps9cvvvtzn.jpg.html)

Bill Polian signed 2 4x6 for me and added HOF 2015 to both. I'd love to add Peyton to the one, but it may be a pipe dream now that he is likely retiring. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2016/02/1522.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/6D496547-F2CD-4091-BB23-ED9FD58D9588_zpscmqshfo2.jpg.html)
Dick Vermiel signed 2/2 for me, but also didn't draw a play on the chalkboard, instead he drew 2 on IC, still cool nonetheless. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2016/02/1523.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/B77B87AF-B888-4DFB-8884-0E349029DB63_zpsuxjoilka.jpg.html)
Mark Wahlberg finished a dual Invincible 4x6 for me. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2016/02/1524.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/CC98C038-19AC-45A7-94E0-7AA15AA4B090_zps8pzmqgh0.jpg.html)

Lastly, Anthony Carter signed 2/2 for me https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2016/02/1526.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/1435395D-6D98-4160-96D6-0007EB12E8BB_zpsmcgnvif6.jpg.html)

03-05-2016, 03:46 PM
Ryne Sandberg completed a dual for me, this was gone for more than a year. https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2016/03/390.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/1D6A5DA0-A9EB-41A5-8CE4-D985A83F4F32_zps28zljwnd.jpg.html)
Bruce Arians sent a 8x10 in place of my 4x6, looks pretty legit though. Also drew a play for my chalkboard project.

03-06-2016, 03:01 AM
Love the chalkboard idea!

03-07-2016, 12:22 PM
These returns are awesome! Love the chalkboard idea, too. Gives me a cool idea for a custom!

03-07-2016, 10:53 PM
Thanks! I appreciate the feedback but it bears repeating again that Steeltowninwv had this idea first and I borrowed it from him. Glad I saw it, and I'm glad you both like it too!

03-09-2016, 03:09 PM
So I picked up a card on eBay I needed to complete a set and I finally got a picture of the whole set! https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2016/03/782.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/9540C440-618D-48D9-9293-FDFF4F33C769_zps4y3vdv8a.jpg.html)

Great update man!

Great update man!
Thanks! Glad to see people still enjoy my thread after a couple years.

Another return today from Y.A. Tittle. I guess he is catching up on his mail as I sent him three requests in total over the course of 2 years or so since he never returned mine with other people and now I have two of the three within 2 weeks! https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2016/05/873.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/11BC4C09-4389-4349-B56F-D8C39FC88871_zpsmugdanhs.jpg.html) He signed this card and a 4x6 along with both IC.

05-10-2016, 03:30 PM
Great thread I also had 3 seperate admissions to Tittle. Got 1 back hoping for an 8x10 custom that I sent 2 years ago.

Good luck getting yours back! Looks like you have good odds with him returning everything lately!

05-23-2016, 04:55 PM
Got a return today! Bruce Buffer signed 2/2 in black and added an advertisement for his book. He added VOTO to all of the photos (Voice of the Octagon).

Nice Mariano Jrs. I've met him a few times this year and he's a nice kid. Definitely takes after his dad in the signature department, too.

Love the chalkboard idea. Where did you get the photos or did you make them yourself?

09-20-2016, 04:45 PM
I googled chalkboard and found a photo I liked and ordered some off of Mailpix.com with the rest of my photos.

Actually got some mail today! May have to send some more out in the near future to try to get some returns to share with all of you! Herb Adderley signed a 4x6 for me, I had not record of it. Muggsy Bogues signed 2 4x6 for me in 2.5 years! The photo with Bol is one of my favorites in my collection now for sure! https://www.sportscardforum.com/images/imported/2017/01/289.jpg (http://s900.photobucket.com/user/coltron57/media/Mobile%20Uploads/710CD7B5-C760-4B41-8BA1-8FDED210BC8D_zpsvlhqa17p.jpg.html)

Got two more returns since the last update. Mail is slow as I haven't sent much out lately, but going to take advantage of some time off to get 15+ out!

Quick recap of the last month or so. Ray Sheppard signed two of two but the USPS got the better of both. Thankfully I have what feels like millions of 1990s hockey cards so I have duplicates many times over of these to re-send!

Scott Hartnell signed 1/1 and gave me a "#sedintriplets" as requested of all 3 of them celebrating an ASG goal. Scotty, who was mic'ed up that game was hilarious.

Very disappointing that photobucket cut out 3rd party hosting unless you pay.
Since my last update:
Brooks Robinson 1/1 w/ $5.
Joe Torre 1/1
Hensley Meulens 3/3 w/ Sir and Bam Bam inscriptions.
Bill Brooks 1/1 w/ ROH inscription
Shawne Merriman 1/1
Mike Prior 2/2
David Tyree 1/1

Also did some IP graphing at a charity softball game. They made it much harder to get items signed but I did ok.
Dylan Larkin 3/3
Mickey Redmond 1/1 on a can of Vernor's.
Manny Legace 3/3
Todd Bertuzzi 2/2
Eddie Mio 2/2
Aaron Ward 2/2
Kris Draper 1/1
Darren Helm 2/2
Jimmy Howard 2/2

A few more have trickled in since my last post:
Phil Dalhausser in over 1100 days! He signed 2/2 photos for me.
Larry Robinson signed 2 cards for me.
Eli Manning signed 2 cards for me.
Ray Sheppard signed 3 cards for me.
David Cone signed 1 card for me.
Things are slow since I don't have many out. However, I did just send out a good amount of requests and I may do one more order of photos to send off.
