    Djauwerda's TTM Success Thread

    Ok, I'll join in the fun, too.

    I've actually been TTMing off and on since around 1994-95, probably with a success rate somewhere around 30-33%. I've sent more cards out than I'd probably care to admit, and used to have a spreadsheet of my success / failures somewhere, but I think it got trashed on an older computer.

    So, I'm sitting in my basement with my auto's and figured I'd at least post my successes over time. I have received most / all of these successes through the mail in care of either their stadiums or spring training facilities. I have usually sent 1 or 2 trading cards. Going to be sending out a bunch of customs to Spring Training this week.

    Here's my successes in no particular order:

    Best story is the Shane Conlan card. I received a letter from State Farm Insurance (Who I incidentally had my insurance through) and somehow my autograph request had gone to Shane Conlan, he had signed it but on the way back to me, my SASE ended up in the mail room of their main office in Bloomington, Illinois. They opened it and returned it to me. Thought that was pretty cool.

    Hopefully, some more successes to come this spring!

    This was cool! I received one of my AFL Dual Signature cards back today... COMPLETE! I sent these to Brett Dietz of the Tampa Bay Storm, he signed them AND had Mr. Hank Edwards sign them as well to complete the cards (Which I didn't ask him to do... but he saved me 88 cents! He kept one (as offered), returned 3/4 in 21 Days c/o the team. He also included the note below.

    thats really cool he went out of his way to have Mr Edwards sign them as well & sent a note back. love when athletes do those kinds of things. very awesome!!!

    Thanks guys. I liked the look. I've sent out to all the teams except the Rush and Yard Dawgs... still have to get them done. I've had 4 of the 11 come back. We'll see what the next month brings.

    They turned out better than I thought.

    I couldn't believe he went out of his way to have Hank Edwards sign them... plus the letter was cool. Got a cool reply from Kyle Rowley of the Spokane Shock if you go back a page, too.

    Do you happen to have any AF2 Addys? My old English teacher's son plays for the Barnstormers, I figured I might pick up a team signed item

    The AFL2 has gone bye bye. In late 2008, the entity known as the AFL folded and went under. They skipped the 2009 season, sold off most of the assets and a new management group took over and resurrected the league in 2010. Iowa is now a part of that league.

    I sent to Ryan Vena, the QB from Iowa, c/o the team address on their website. Haven't received back from him, though.

    Ahh. I don't know much about AFL, I just know that the Barnstormers are still around. I used to be interested in it around 2006-2007 but I never really kept up with it

    I'm officially becoming a Spokane Shock fan! Got my first AFL Dual signed card done "the hard way" back today as Huey Whittaker signed and returned 3/4 (kept one as offered) to me c/o the Shock's arena. Turnaround was 10 days. I'm a Chicago Rush fan... but these guys (Rowley and Whittaker) were fast, friendly, and besides that, they are playing great. Thanks guys!
