5 successes that I have gotten in recently...

Eric Young Jr
C/O New York Mets in 13 days and signed 2/2
Cool return from the reigning National League stolen base champion. He is on his way to that total again this year, already tallying 21 stolen bases in 53 games. He has always been a good signer and I hope that he can continue to have success going forward. This is a nice addition to my 2013 Topps set.

Brad Ziegler
C/O Arizona Diamondbacks in 20 days and signed 2/2
One of the best TTM signers in baseball, up there with Pat Neshek. I get asked a lot who are some players that are good players to send too and Ziegler is one of them, as close to a lock or guarantee that there is. Ziegler is one of the better middle relief guys in the game and I would like to see him get a shot as closer at some point. Again, this is nice addition to my 2013 topps set and one that I should have gotten in a long time ago.

Bob Lilly
C/O Home in 10 days and signed 1/1
This is my 2nd return from Mr. Lilly and like my forts a very nice return. Mr. Lilly was nice enough to inscribe HOF 80 as well as Mr. Cowboy which he didn't have to do and i greatly appreciate it! He does sometimes require a fee, but I was glad to get this back without one. He is a must send too for any Cowboys fan as one of the best players in franchise history. This is a great addition to my 1997 UD set which is only going to get harder with the huge names in that set.

Bill Barber
C/O Home in 20 days and signed 1/1 and also signed 2 index cards
Very nice success from the 1990 Hall of Fame inductee and one of the better players in Flyers history. He played the game the right way and had a decorated career doing it. He was a 2 time Stanley Cup champion and 1998 Calder Cup campion among other accolades. This is a very nice addition to my 2001 Greats of the Game set which is coming along nicely.
user posted image

Ken Hodge Sr
C/O Home in 12 days and signed 1/1
Another return for my 2001 Greats of the Game set! Mr. Hodge also had a very decorated career hence why he's in this set. He was a two tone Stanley Cup Champion with the Bruins and having a great career in Boston in the late 60's-early 70's. One thing I love about this set is that you get to learn about a lot of these players that maybe not a lot of people remember or have heard of. Most of these guys from that era are very good signers, and sign quickly as well. I love the way these look signed, especially in blue and I'm very happy to add this to the set.

Got 4 returns in recently...

Adam Dunn
C/O Home in 30 days and signed 2/2
Awesome success from one of my favorite players in the MLB. I have always enjoyed watching him play and when he joined my favorite team, the White Sox I was really excited and have gotten the chance to see him play a lot and too this day I haven't seen anyone hit the ball as far him. Even though he will probably hit 500 HR's he most likely won't make the Hall of Fame because of his bad average and strikeout numbers. I do wigs he would have signed them in something besides a ball point pen but the don't look that bad and I'm just happy to get them back. This is a great addition to my 2013 Topps set!

Dan Pastorini
C/O Home in 43 days and signed 3/3
Very cool success from the QB from the Luv Ya Blue era in Houston. In my opinion he was one of the more underrated QB's of the 70's and didn't really get the recognition he deserved. When his career was over he transitioned to drag racing and still does to this day. This a nice addition to my 2005 Topps Fan Favorites set which I haven't added to in a long time.
user posted image

Steve Shutt
C/O Cimco Refrigeration in 29 days and signed 1/1
Very nice return from one of the better wingers of the 70's. He scored 60 goals in 76-77 which was record that stood until 92-93. He was also a 5 time Stanley cup winner with the Canadians. He obviously had a decorated career and is one if the best players in Canadians history. This is a really nice addition to my 2001 Greats if the Game set which has been getting added to every day it seems.
user posted image

Jon Fitch
C/O AKA Gym in 178 days and signed 8/8
Nice return from the former UFC welterweight and now is in the World Series of Fighting. In my opinion he didn't deserve to be released from the UFC after recording an 14-3-1 record and being ranked in the top 10 in the division. I did say in my letter he could keep however many cards he wanted and was gracious enough to sign everything I sent. I haven't had many UFC returns lately and I hope that will change soon!

Got 5 successes in recently...

Steve Largent
C/O Home in 127 days and signed 1/3
Awesome return from the Seahawks legend and 1995 Hall of Fame inductee. Even though he did make the Hall of Fame he is still criminally underrated when being talked about as one if the best WRs of all-time. It was kind of unfortunate that he only signed 1 card and I might have to resend to him to get my 1997 UD legends card signed for my set.
user posted image

Jordan Zimmermann
C/O Washington Nationals in 26 days and signed 1/1
I was very happy to get this one back as from what I have seen he has slowed down on signing. Another thing that I have noticed is that he has a tendency to switch cards from the ones that were originally sent. The silver pen he used looks really nice on the card. He was named to his first all-star team this year but choose not to play because of injury so I was really happy to add this too my 2013 Topps set.
user posted image

Dustin Poirier
Cool return from an up and coming UFC fighter. He is already ranked #6 in the Featherweight division and should get a shot at the title in the bear future. I always like getting the notes back and it seems like he is a really cool guy and has a good head on his shoulders. He was also nice enough to inscribe "the diamond" which I requested in the letter and greatly appreciate. He doesn't have a fight coming up soon but I would love to see him fight McGregor or Lamas for #1 contender.
user posted image

Donald Cerrone
C/O his gym in NM in a 568 days and signed 3/3
Definitely didn't think I was getting this one back as this is my 2nd return from him and the first I sent. I'm really happy to get it back though as I really enjoy watch Cerrone fight and he has a fight coming up against Jim Miller this Wednesday that should be a lot of fun to watch. He is #6 in the deep lightweight division and like Poirier could be coming up on a title fight within the next couple of years.
user posted image

Stefan Struve
C/O Dynamix MMA in 31 days and signed 6/6
Very nice return from a fighter that I have enjoyed watching for awhile. Unfortunately, he had to drop out of his fight against Mitrione the night of the fight because of a heart condition. Who knows if he will fight again but he's only 26 so he might be able to fight again in the future. One thing that I obviously took note of when I first saw him fight was his size, he is 7 feet tall and currently the tallest fighter in the UFC. That size gives him a reach advantage in pretty much every fight he's in and it's just fun watching someone that talk fight in the octagon. He sent out a tweet that he was returning his fanmail and true to his word I got it back a couple of days later with the skyscraper inscription which I really appreciate.

Got 1 return in today...

Brandi Chastain
C/O Home in 16 days and signed 1/1
Very cool return from one of the more recognizable players in US soccer history. Obviously she is most known for scoring the game winning goal in the 1999 World Cup against China then ripping off her shirt which is one of the most well known moments in sports history. I love the way the autograph looks on the ginter card, and I specifically asked for that specific inscription which she was gracious enough to do and it looks great. I wish I had more of the non baseball ginter cards as they look great signed and don't need to be prepped. It's not everyday you can add an Olympian TTM and especially in only 16 days. One of my more favorite returns just because of the way it looks and the significance of her goal in the 1999 World Cup.

2 returns in recently and one unfortunate failure

Aaron Murray
C/O University of Georgia Football in 377 days and signed 2/2 and also signed 2 index cards
Wow! Definitely didn't think I was getting this one back. I just took a shot in the dark sending to him while he was at Georgia and he must have kept all the mail he accumulated while in college. I have had a horrible success rate sending to college players and I'm pretty sure it's due to the college not letting them sign as opposed to the players not wanting to sign based on this return. I hope the he can possibly unseat Alex Smith and become the starting QB in Kansas City in the next couple if years as I really enjoyed watching him play at Georgia and think he could make a solid QB in the NFL, especially a team like KS that relies on running the ball and playing good defense. It is kind of unfortunate that the photos came back a bit smeared, but who cares I'm just glad they came back, and the signed index cards with the inscription are great as well!

Demetrious Johnson
C/O AMC Kickboxing in 132 days and signed 4/4
This is my 3rd return from Mighty Mouse and took the longest of all 3. I primarily sent to him to get the octagon side card signed as I'm doing the set. I think he is finally getting the recognition he deserves as one of the best pound for pound fighters in the UFC. He has a fight coming up against Chris Cariaso at UFC 177 in August and Johnson should win the fight pretty easily. I have kind of hit the wall with this set and hope that a couple of the cards for the set that I sent out come back soon.
user posted image

Now for the unfortunate failure...

Ed Giacomin
Came back in 15 days unsigned with a note saying that he requires $10 per autograph. This is one of the things that irritates me most about getting TTM autographs. Mr. Giacomin spent more time writing that little note than he would have had he just signed the card. He even wrote his first name on the note. I have seen people get him for free so it's unfortunate that he didn't sign the card.

A couple of returns the past couple of days...

Tommy Nobis
C/O Home in 33 days and signed 1/1 and signed 2 index cards and also wrote a really nice note.
A very nice return from all that I have read a very nice person. In my opinion he is one of the most underrated players in NFL history. In 1966 he was credited with 294 tackles which still to this day is the most in a single season. I think it's truly an abomination that he isn't in the NFL Hall of Fame and hopefully he can make it in through the veterans committee. The note he wrote was very nice if him and I always like getting them back. This is a great addition to my 1997 UD Legends set and hopefully I can get more back in the near future!
user posted image

Nicklas Backstrom
C/O Minnesota Wild in 416 days and signed 4/4
One of my longer returns to date, very happy to get them back as I always like getting the current hockey players TTM. Surprisingly, I have had really bad success with current hockey players and when I do get them back they usually take a long time. Unfortunately, Mr. Backstrom has kind of regressed in his production as he once was consistently in the Vezina Trophy consideration as the top goalie in the NHL. I hope he can regain that form as Minnesota is a team on the rise as one of the better teams in the NHL. This is a rare 11-12 UD set addition that I haven't added to in a long time.

Got a couple of returns in today...

Cain Velasquez
C/O AKA in 54 and 131 days and signed a total of 6 cards out of the 10 I sent in both requests.
He sent both requests back in one envelope and saved me an unused SASE which was cool of him to do. These both took longer than the returns I have seen as well as longer than when I got him back in the past. He is one of my favorite fighters in the UFC and really one of the only truly elite heavyweight fighter right now. He is scheduled to fight Fabricio Werdum at UFC 180 which should be great fight for the title. He does personalize everything he signs which is fine with me. This is a great add to my Octagon Side which I have been slowly adding to.

And a big one...

Shaquille O'Neal!
C/O Mine O'Mine in 46 days and signed 3/3
One of my favorite successes to date. He is still to this day my favorite NBA player ever and got me into basketball when he and Kobe were tearing it up in the early 2000's with the Lakers. There's really not much I can really say that you guys don't know about Shaq, in my opinion he was the most intimidating big man of all time and the last of the dying breed if true imposing centers in the NBA. He is a first ballot Hall of Famer and part of the greatest 50 players of all time. Unfortunately, the chrome didn't come out to well but I honestly don't care, I'm just glad to get all of them back signed. If I ever decide to get cards authenticated the topps would definitely be one that would get authenticated.

One success in today...

Gilbert Brown
C/O Home in 30 days and signed 1/1 and also signed an index card with inscriptions.
Very cool success from one of my favorite Packers of all-time. He was an integral part of the Packers team that won the Super Bowl in 1996 and without him I'm confident they wouldn't have won that Super Bowl. During his prime he was arguably one of the better NT's in the NFL at stopping the run. I have heard nothing but good things when it comes to him when it comes to signing at really happy to add his autograph to my collection. I really love how he signed the index card with his nickname The Gravedigger and it looks great. This is a very nice addition to my Packers collection.

Finally got a couple of returns...

Vance McDonald
C/O San Francisco 49ers in 119 days and signed 1/1
Very cool success from the up and coming 49ers TE. He's was drafted in the 2nd round of the 2013 draft out if Rice and should be in line to have a big year. One of the cool things about this return is that McDonald followed me on Twitter and said that he signed and sent back my card signed. I also sent him a DM about how the Packers could use him any TE and he said it's too cold,lol. Seems like a really nice guy and hope for nothing but the best to him in the future!
user posted image

Rashad Evans
C/O Authentic Sports Management, got both requests I sent out back in one day in 102 and 248 days. Each one he signed 5/5.
Very Happy to get this one back as he is one of my favorite fighters. Unfortunately, he got hurt 10 days before he was scheduled to fight Daniel Cormier which would have been a great fight and he had to pull out if the fight. He said he's going to be coming back in the fall and hope that he comes back at 100%. All of the cards turned out great and he signed the jumbo relic perfectly on the relic.

2 returns in today...

Peter Stastny
C/O Home in 73 days and signed 1/2
Very cool success from one of hockey's all time greats. He was inducted in the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1998 and was ranked as the 56th best player of all time out of 100. He had a decorated career and is most likely the best player in New Jersey Devils history. One unfortunate thing about this return was that he signed this card instead of the 2001 greats of the game card I needed for my set so I will be resending to him very shortly and I hope I can get the card needed for my set signed as nicely as this one.
user posted image

Alex Morgan
C/O Portland Thorns in 209 days and signed 1/1
Awesome success from one if the more well known female soccer players in recent memory. I was really happy to get this back since I have heard stories about her signing habits and how age doesn't really like to sign. She made a name for herself in the 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup and has been having success ever since. The black ink doesn't really show up well in the picture but looks great in person. I'm not really working on this set but I try to get the big names in the set when I can and I'm really happy to get this one back!

2 returns in today...

Jim Zorn
C/O Home in 7 days and signed 3/3 and also signed an index card
Very cool success from the former star QB of the Seahawks in the late 70's-early 80's. He was a big fan favorite during his time in Seattle and throwing to Steve Largent formed one of the most formidable duos of that era. From what I have seen from what other people have gotten back from him he always inscribes Prov. 22:1 on everything he signs which is very nice if him. I have started sending out these team logo 4x6 photos and this one in particular looks really nice signed, I'm thinking of sending it to Largent to get dual signed.

Michel Goulet
C/O Home in 37 days and signed 1/1 and also signed and index card
Awesome return from one of hockey's most prolific snipers of all-time. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1998 and is a true Legend of the Game. Unfortunately, his career was ended prematurely but he seems to have made a successful transition to a front office position. I really like getting these cards signed, they always look nice and doth have to be prepped. This is a very nice addition to my 2001 Greats of the Game set.
