Ralph Terry (6/26/2019): First Wednesday return since Terry Gilliam! Kinda sad because this is the first time I’ve had a card get damaged in the mail. He accidentally stuck the card to the seal of the envelope and ripped off the area around his wrists on the card. If you wanna see the picture , check out my success under his name in the TTM Manager. He also answered my questions.

1). What was it like to win the 1962 WS and be named it’s MVP?

2). What was it like to play with Mickey Mantle?
-He was the BEST!

He also added 2 notes on the question sheet.
”IAN - Thanks for the nice letter!” and “$20-?? You forgot.” I guess that explains why the card got damaged 😂. For future reference, if you’re gonna send to him, DO NOT forget the $20.

Gaylord Perry (6/29/2019): Great! The first Cy Young award winner I’ve gotten since Jim Palmer!

Jim Kaat (6/29/2019): Nice! Not much to say about him, other than he answered my questions.

1). What is the best game you ever played in?
- Game 2 of the 1965 World Series

2). Do you think you’ll ever be a HOFer?

Dick Groat (7/1/2019): Awesome!! A new oldest card I’ve gotten signed, as I got it on a 1953 Topps. I didn’t know his, but the card is apparently worth ~$20, so it’s also the most valuable card I’ve sent out! He also answered (one of) my questions!

1). What was it like to play baseball & basketball? [He played for the Fort Wayne Pistons (the precursor to the Detroit Pistons) from 1952-1953]
-Great Fun

2). What was it like to win the 1960 World Series?
He didn’t answer this one

Tony LaRussa (7/1/2019): Nice! I was gonna send a A’s card to him also (for my dad), but I didn’t wanna hinder my chances of him signing. That, and I only have 1 A’s card of him.

Carl Erskine (7/2/2019): Awesome!! I bought a 1958T of him for only $1, so I payed $2 to get 3 autographs from him! Very nice guy! He added a “#17” inscription on the ‘58 Topps, and sent me his own card! He even signed my question sheet with “#17” and “Dodgers” inscriptions! My questions were:

1). What was it like to play in 4 World Series in 5 seasons?
- I was fortunate to pitch for a great team. - An honor to be in 11 W.S. Games

2). What was your favorite pitch?
He didn’t answer this one.

Dan Issel (7/10/2019): Exactly 1 year after I got Charley Trippi! Very nice to get a actual basketball card signed! Now I just have to wait for Robert Parish to sign to get another!

Denny McLain (7/11/2019): WOOOOOO!!!! MY 200TH TTM AUTOGRAPH!!! He added a “31-6, 1968” inscription. I wrote him a very nice thank you note for my 200th TTM auto and mailed it yesterday.

Joe Arenas (7/11/2019): My 2nd Purple Heart winner! He fought in Iwo Jima and got hit with shrapnel. He even sent me a second ‘54 Bowman!! I would definitely recommend sending to him if you are doing a WWII collection.
