Thread: Djauwerda's TTM Success Thread

    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:

    Basketball

    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!

    Hanburger is one of those guys that has been on my list for awhile, but just never put in the mail. Class Act. Jim McMahon's story is probably more typical than we know. Did anyone just see the study that came out that said the average college football lineman will have over 1000 signficant head collisions in the course of a season? Makes you wonder.

    He's really a cool guy. Don't know if you follow him on Twitter, but he's hysterical.

    Thanks Harley. I've got over 30 requests out right now, which is a ton for me, but I've been coming home to a lot of bare mailboxes. Including some to some guys that are usually pretty good signers. Just gotta be patient, I guess.

    One in earlier this week.

    Gino Marchetti: A little HOF Mojo this week. Mr. Marchetti signed 4/4 customs, inscribed 2 with his HOF year, and also included a signed HOF card. Returned them in 9 days via his home I sent a $10 donation.

    Been a disappointing month for TTM. I have about 20 requests out that I thought were near locks for returns that I haven't seen, including about 10 of a new design that I have been waiting to unveil. Guess that's the nature of the beast. Two recent returns:

    Lee Elia: He had a colorful career with the Cubs, especially as a manager. Returned 3/4 customs (K1AO) in 11 days via his home.

    Roe Skidmore: I've been wanting this one for awhile, but have struggled to find a good picture to use for the card. Mr. Skidmore went to the same university as I did (Millikin) and finished his major league career with a perfect 1.000 batting average... he was 1 for 1. He returned 2/3 customs (K1AO) and signed my LOR in 9 days via his home.

    Two more that finally rolled in:

    Joe Ferguson: Highly underrated. 11 days door to door.
    Art Still: 49 days to return. Glad it's home.

    A little HOF Mojo yesterday!

    Goose Gossage: 17 day turnaround for one of the best sigs in the business. Inscribed his HOF year. I included $20. Returned 2/2.

    Gossage return turned out nice. I need to get a baseball out to him.
