I am posting this separate because of the special nature of the contents. Whenever I write to a player, I generally ask them to share some career highlights with me. And on some rare occasions, I get something like this in return~


I like receiving items like this more than my cards I send off! It amazes to get a letter/note like this and to think a big leaguer took the time to chat with me. These are the priceless gems that make TTM's one of the greatest ways of enjoying collecting!


that is so cool........

and, yes, I will probably need help with finding addresses...
do you have any pointers on finding them? does somebody keep some kind of database???

Those are some great stories! I really enjoyed reading about the autographs you have and the stories behind them! You really got my attention when you mentioned Brooks Robinson! He is probably my most favorite player from my years growing up. And speaking of his auto...you can't get anything from him for FREE anymore! Everything he signs now costs big dollars and goes to his charity. I'm not mad though and hope TRI-STAR brings him to the National next year to sign...I have never paid an outrageously priced signing ticket before, but for Brooks to personally sign my card...I wouldn't mind! \:\)

As far as getting addresses...there is a site you can join for FREE and pay the yearly fee. The site is called SportsCollecors.Net SportsCollectors.Net It cost about $15 for a yearly full membership which is the best bargain for what you get! The site is priceless for the true TTM'er! Check it out. If you need any pointers or direction on anything...just give me a shout! Be glad to help you get started!

Hi Barry! I actually have been waiting since 9-05 for him to send my request back with the $5 signing fee. I mean...the fee is totally acceptable to me and would have paid more if needed, but wasn't sure on the time factor or if I would get it back at all! Have you received any good TTM's as of late? I will be testing the waters again by sending Andy another 58 to sign, as I just picked one up a better conditioned card. I think I have about 60 58's that are signed and have to start looking to purchase more cards to send out!
