May may have held the record for most items signed TTM for a bit, but that record has been shattered in July. Here's a list of new personal records now that we're through month #7...

Most TTM sigs in a single day: 37 (July 6, 2020)


Best single month of TTMs: 224 items signed


Best two-month period of TTMs: 374 items signed in June and July


Best three-month period of TTMs: 570 items signed from May through July


All of those come up well short of my all-time record of TOTAL autographs in those categories (131, 270, 528, and 767, respectively), but considering I can't do any IP graphing and even TTMs are starting to see some changes due to the volume of collectors looking for a new project, I feel like those are some nice numbers.


Speaking of new projects, I've been helping a friend who is using TTMs as a summer geography lesson for her kids. She's started out with just Kansas City Royals (with successes from Mark Gubicza, Greg Gagne, Terry Leach, Kevin Koslofski, Jerry Don Gleaton, Jim Eisenreich, Rick Luecken, and Jeremy Guthrie all coming back in under two weeks so far) but plans to expand out to other teams soon.
