The mention of "Loose Balls" quickly gained attention of the entire office and he was half embarrassed but thought it was cool that I knew he was an All-Star. Part II of this story is a few years ago when I wrote to him at his addy in Columbus. I waited for a full year, recounted the above story. When my card came back, it came back signed "To Steve". My name (while close) is not Steve. It's like that time Chris Hanburger called you Rich.....I was so annoyed. Glad to see you had a nice success.
    Great story Deadhorse & nice to see ya around the boards. I still have those Hanburger cards, actually looked at them the other day & kinda chuckled. Not event hat big of a deal anymore. I never had the kind of experience you did with Mr Jones but he just seems like a genuine nice guy.

    I always enjoy the 72 Topps card with the pyschadelic lettering. Just fits the era so well.

    todays returns.

    Gene Guarilia 2/2, out 2-11, back 2-19. 2nd time sending to him. first time he signed the back, this time added a fade out effect to the bottom of the picture so he would have a better spot to sign. turned out nice.

    Wayne Hawkins 2/2, out 2-9, back 2-19. same deal as the Guarilia cards. 2nd attempt & these turned out much better. 1st return i sent to dark of pictures & didnt look good at all.

    Myer Skoog 2/2, out 2-11, back 2-19. signed the front of these.. very pleased.

    Bill Enyart 2/2, out 2-11, back 2-19. signed the front of these. pleased with the way they look.

    Michael Ray Richardson 2/2, out 1-22, back 2-19. Thrilled to add this 4x all star & 2x CBA champion as a coach to the collection.

    Brady Quinn 2/2, out 2-6, back 2-19. fast return.

    Chris Snee 2/2, out 12-29, back 2-19. awesome return. thrilled to add this 2x Super bowl champ & 4x pro bowler.

    I always liked Quinn and he really seemed like a good guy. Wish he had more success as a pro.

    Joined this site just for this thread. I've only sent out 4 TTMs because I'm scared to death of losing my stuff but this thread motivated me. Went and picked up some envelopes, stamps, and 2 ROMLB's today as well as I think I'm going to send a "Jacobs Field" collectors ball to spring training for the Tribe hoping Lofton will sign it (and maybe talk Sandy, Belle, Baerga, hell anyone from the 95 team who is there)
