    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!

    Thank you much. I enjoyed putting this design together, had a couple of other ideas prior to this one that didn't come together like I wanted. Got a couple other ideas in mind, but I have to figure out how to make them first! LOL!

    Had a little 9 day drought going, but broke out in a nice HOF way tonight...

    Bryan Trottier: I saw a couple good responses to Mr. Trottier, so I took a shot. He signed 1/2 customs (K1AO) and also returned a card with a preprint auto. Took 23 days round trip. Always glad to have another Hall of Famer in the house.

    Nice Trottier. Good to see he's signing a bit again. He was actually my first hockey TTM ever.

    Thanks guys. He was very fast for me. I only asked for 1/2 customs back so I think he was open to it. He sent back a preprint, too. Might want to try him again.

    Speaking of that. I better go update the TTM with my 2012 successes before they get out of control again.

    After 3 attempts, I finally picked up one I've been wanting for awhile... and a little HOF mojo to boot.

    Mr. Ralph Kiner: Mr. Kiner signed 1/2 customs (K1AO) in 7 days. I also included a $20 donation. Even added his HOF year. I'm going to smile all night.
