    Stadium TTM, New to this with ?s send money?

    I started about 40 days ago with the TTM process. It has been exciting and fun and I just burned out my first pan that I bought to do this with. I was a little surprised when I realized how quickly the postage added up but no biggie it’s been fun in the process.
    I refined my methods along the way and I now sent two cards one for signature one for the player to keep. I just kind a realized after sending out about 60 requests that maybe I should’ve sent money with some of them?

    The only response of the many people I have sent to has been from patina shack who is awesome and is known to be responsive but I really appreciate. So now I’m wondering should I have sent a buck or five bucks or more to each one?

    To be more specific, I have sent my request to current baseball players in the major league

    Most of the time with current players, they're just too busy to sign. So I don't think sending money makes a difference. That's my opinion.

    Your best bet is to look at people's successes, and see who will sign for money or with whom it increases your odds. Have you looked in the TTM Manager? There's a tab on the top of the page right now.

    Thank you for the reply. I have used the TTM info here, after sending about 35+ letters. I got one back yesterday, someone ripped off the address off the original envelope, luckily there was the sase inside. Note to self, do not use old or odd stamps.

    Like it was said before check the TTM to see if they ask for a fee to sign. Welcome and good luck!

    I agree with everything people have said. The only current players that really require money are the Phillies through Pat Neshek if you know the fees.

    The TTM manager is a great research tool. You can see how often people sign, if they require fees, where to send it, and even how many cards they will sign. If you look, most guys will sign more than 1, but also you have ones that come to mind like Will Clark, Mark White, etc. that will only sign one at a time no matter what.

    Good luck! And feel free to PM me if you have further questions
