wsoxfan's TTM thread
Okay, so I just joined the site this past week and got hooked on TTM. I've never done it before, but I have so many cards sitting around I want signed, so I decided to give it a shot. I only collect White Sox autos, so I sent out over 60 requests last week to current and former Sox who are known signers, including some minor leaguers. Some of them I realized after I shipped have fees, so now I know to read the comments first, and I won't be expecting those back signed. I'll be shipping quite a few more this week, and will update this thread as I get things back. I'll keep adding to this list as I ship. So far, I've sent out to these players:
Floyd Bannister (Success 3/25/17; 9 day return)
Steve Carlton (Failure 3/24/17; $)
Carlton Fisk (Failure 3/24/17; $)
Bill Gogolewski (Success 3/25/17; 5 day return)
Roberto Hernandez (Success 3/15/17; 9 day return)
Ron Kittle (Success 3/25/17; 9 day return)
Ron LeFlore (Failure 3/24/17; $)
Bill Long (Success 3/22/17; 6 day return)
Bobby Molinaro (Success 3/25/17; 8 day return)
Lyle Mouton (Success 3/24/17; 8 day return)
Mike Squires (Success 3/25/17; 8 day return)
Current success rate: 73%!
Wish me luck! I haven't gotten anything back yet, and I'm already addicted!

Welcome to the party! You should have a fair amount of success with that list. I've gotten several of those guys TTM over the years and seen successes from several more. Keep us posted!Collecting all Topps Chrome base sets and Cleveland Indians

Welcome to the addiction. I agree with @OC22, should have a lot of success... I know Carlton & Fisk charge fees though, so if you didn't send funds, those probably won't come back. LeFlore charges now, too... you can get him through pastpros.com
Here are the White Sox I have had success with in the past (since 2010)... I think everyone I listed is still alive.

Yeah, I'd really like to get Pierzynski, but it doesn't seem like he's been signing the past few years. If he starts having successes again I'll send something.
