1 was from
Scott Schwedes. Sent him 2 cards 1 for him to keep. He replied with a nice note on the bottom of my letter saying how he loved the card and how original it was. He also said he was including the Kodak pic autoed of himself as i seem like a sincer Dolphins (that i am)

then i got this from Mike Holmes Played 1 season for the Dolphins in 76 He signed the top loader and never took out the cards. So i will take it but may send back sometime. For now i cut out his auto from the top loader and placed it over the card and then in another top loader. Doesn't look to bad lmk what you think and if you have ever had this happen before.

Yea was thinking of do a redesign and making a cut.
rnpurdue
That happen to a member over on the sportscollectors.net site, where an athlete signed his top loader. But I think his was a HOF'er with a high fee. blink.gif Needless to say, he was a little frustrated.
Gadsden86
yea i posted mine their as well. Not sure if i will resend or not.
gregorium
I had Butch Bouchard sign my penny sleeve, but he realized the mess up and also signed the card.
Gadsden86

Frank Emanuel. Sent to his old addy last week and then was given his new one by a member on another forum. Great return.

LMK what you guys think.
gregorium
Nice returns.
Gadsden86
Thanks hoping for more this week. sent 2 more today and got 6 more i just need to write letters for smile.gif
gregorium
I hear you on the letters. I find it to be the most time consuming part. sad.gif
rnpurdue
I agree also. Spent nearly 2 hours writing letters today at work. I wonder if they ever read them?
Gadsden86
Yea i have a base start for most of my letters and thats already a 1/2 of paragraph smile.gif
I just start to write why i am writing to them and then i got about a 1/2 page so its usually good...

On a sad note got a RTS today.
Said Not deliverable as addressed can not forward. It was for Tyrone Braxton he had a success at the same addy i used only a few weeks ago. Wondering if he moved.
Anyone have an addy for him?
cardcrazed
I send typed letters, takes less time and seems to be pretty successful! I did recently send out a handwritten letter as an experiment to see if it would be as successful so we will just have to wait and see! As far as you getting a RTS yeah those can be real bummers, I've gotten my share of them!

Justin
gregorium
I never found a difference between typed and handwritten, so now I use my template and personalize it for each. Still time consuming though.
Gadsden86
3 TTM's back 1 was a RTS from Tony bua (unable to forward)

then 2 original dolphins.
these 2 back from Frank jackson

Well done on the Manning! Looks like he is playing nice and keeping up his rep by signing for free and for often. Now is the time to get his auto cheap and easy.
Gadsden86
Thanks, was very happy with that one.

got 1 in today and 1 in Friday or sat.
the one over the weekend brought me.

Love getting the lesser known guys and the ones who dont have certified autos.

thats it for now hope for more later.
Daniel.kr88
Nice succeses and nice custom cards,how did you doing your custom cards
Gadsden86
Thanks. Guessing you mean how did i start?
Well i do alot of computer work at my job and started dabbling in customs and finally came up with a design i really like. Always been a big fan of press pass and having the white area makes great for the auto.
Daniel.kr88
this is the standard card size?Do you print this on your own priter?I would like to try make own custom card and I donīt know how can I make this
Gadsden86
Hey guys great day for autographs for me.
1st was a TTM. about 30 days
2/2 Louis Oliver

then today was a local Celebrity Patriots softball game.
Players thier were.
Jim Bowman, Steve Deiossie, Jermain Wiggins, Patrick Pass, Rob Gronkowski, Brian Hoyer, Rob Ninkovich, Scott Zolak, Jermain Cunningham & Kevin Faulk.

Well they moved the game to 6:30 for the Bruins game tonight only about 100-200 people showed. The game lasted about an hour then they all signed for about 20 minuets. Didnt seem like anyone was being mauled just Gronk for the very beginning.
I 1st got Steve Dieossie on a mini helmet was very nice. Then went over to Brian Hoyer and had him sign an 8x10 of him from the show game he loved the pic. Then went over to Rob Ninkovich and a woman asked him to sign her shirt she then said thanks Gronk.
He was like i'm not a TE and i'm much better looking

He signed my mini helmet and a Blank card as he was a former Dolphins player as well.
I then found Zolak he was alone and i was like hows it going he said good then i showed him my custom and he loved it and signed w/ his dolphins number as well.
To wrap this up got all the guys that were their except Patrick pass. Had him before but for got to get him again oh well. Was a fun time and only the cost of the mini helmet for all these autos.

Here are some pics.(mini helmet not show camera is dead )

With this success my count now stands at (not counting what i am sending on 6/29)

118 Sent
86 Successes
6 Failures
26 waiting on

thats a nice 72 % success rate. Can't ask for more.
also
My failures
Fuad Reveis- 1 never came back and the other was RTS... think this guy just doesnt want to sign for me. dry.gif

Chris Chambers--- nothing after 1 year

Tony Bua- resent to new addy.

Peyton Manning - 1st time i sent got a pp 2nd time was good

Billy sims- must have gotten lost as many have gone and come since to the same addy. Will resend.

Drew Brees- Saints card sent back w/ brees gold card. Cool return auto would hav been better.

Oh well here is to many more autos threw the mail tongue.gif
rnpurdue
You are not the only one having problems with Billy Sims. I saw requests come and get returned and mine is still out there. I sent him a football with a donation. Nothing. Manning appears to be bipolar with his signings. I got a success, then the dreaded autopen. LMK if your next attempt with those clowns results in suucess. Otherwise, I think our mailmen know each other and decide which days to send us TTM's laugh.gif .
Gadsden86
Sure. I will resend to Billy at some point just not sure when.
ronaldinho0003
72%...very nice! Keep them coming.
Gadsden86
Thanks. guys.

Hey guys got a nice TTM i sent 62 days ago.
Sent me back both my customs and added his own card of himself in a Dolphins uniform. Also sent my letter back saying thank you and signed that as well. So 4 autos from him alone. Great return. He was the dolphins 1st Kicker. Also was a receiver for them as well.
