Today I received an envelope from Cato June! Cato is a former Linebacker for the Colts and 6th round draft pick, who played collegiately at Michigan. He is currently a member of the Omaha Nighthawks of the UFL! This is my second success from the UFL so I am pretty hyped!

Cato June - 1/1 - 81 days!

Thanks! Yeah you should, I'm sure your customs would go over really well with them! maybe you could make some UFL customs!

Wow, Cato June in the UFL. What a fall from grace. He was a Pro Bowler with the Colts, I believe. Nice pick-up. I wish his teammate Crouch would send me his pic I sent him.
Gadsden86
Maybe i made one of Jermaine wiggins when i was going to meet him. I didnt have him sign it oh well.

Well today was a good TTM day for me! I received 2 of my envelopes, The first envelope is from Colt's Head Coach Jim Caldwell! The second envelope is from Baltimore Colts Safety Jerry Logan! Jerry played safety in the league for 10 years, he played along side Rick Volk and helped lead the team to a Super Bowl V victory! I'm super pumped about these successes!

Jim Caldwell - 1/1- 11 days
Jerry Logan - 1/1 - 7 days

Who is this Jim Caldwell you speak of? Isn't he in the running for Coach of the Year? laugh.gif I honestly think Manning is the MVP of the league. The Colts being 0-8 have proven he is.

Well this has been a pretty good week for me as far as TTM's are concerned! Today I received 2 more envelopes, the first envelope is from Cotton Speyrer. Cotton was a WR for the Baltimore Colts and Miami Dolphins. The next envelope is from Renaldo Wynn! Wynn is a former DE from Notre Dame. He was a 1st round draft pick in 1997 by the Jaguars. I sent this card to the Omaha Nighthawks. The envelope is post marked from Las Vegas so not sure if that is where he lives or what but I assume he was cut or released from the Nighthawks. Either way I am pretty excited about the success I have had with the UFL!

Renaldo Wynn - 1/1 - 91 days!
Cotton Spreyrer - 1/1 - 6 days! (gotta love those quick returns)

Your on a roll. Congrats! Man the UFL. Wish I would have thought to try that this year. I hear they may not play a Championship game or another season?
cardcrazed
Stlramman - thanks, yeah its nice to have these little streaks!
Matt - Jim Caldwell who? now that is funny!

Well the luck continues! Today I got a huge return (well atleast to me it is huge) with another one of my envelopes! This envelope is from Brian Kelly, Head Coach of my Notre Dame Fighting Irish!!!! I am so excited to add his autographed card to my collection! By the way have I said how much I love TTM's!

Brian Kelly - 1/1 - 40 days!

Justin

Nice return on the Irish coach!

Today I go out to the mailbox only to stumble over a photo mailer on my porch! This mailer was from Ned Bolcar, former linebacker and captain of the 1988 national championship Fighting Irish team! Ned was a 6th round pick by the seahawks! Not only did Ned sign my card but he also sent me an inscribed 8X10 and paid for the shipping as well!!! May not be the biggest name success but it will go down as one of my favorites! Awesome Day!

Ned Bolcar - 1/1 (and an 8X10) - 16 days!

Justin
Gadsden86
Congrats on the Bolcar.
Also do you mind sending me the addy for Cotton. Need to get him for my Dolphins PC.

THanks

Double WOWSERS, todays trip to the mailbox was well worth it! Today I received 2 of my envelopes back! The first envelope is from Rex Kern! Rex played QB at Ohio State and Defensive Back for the Baltimore Colts! Rex is also a member of the College Hall of Fame! The second envelope is in my eyes a miracle because I figured when I sent it that I had no chance of getting it back, but not only did I get my card back but got it back signed! This envelope is from Rudy Ruettiger, thats right "RUDY"! Rudy was a walk on for the 1975 team when he made his famous last play sack of the QB! Rudy is only the second player to ever be carried off the field for ND. Rudy is now a motivational speaker. Sorry for ranting but I'm just pretty excited about this day!

Rex Kern - 1/1 - 17 days
Rudy Ruettiger - 1/1 - 10 days (I had him sign his Allen&Ginter card)

Justin

Finally I got an envelope back! Today I received an envelope from Tyler Eifert, current TE for my Fighting Irish! Tyler is projected as a 2nd round pick if he decides to come out. Analysts have said if he stays in school he would be a 1st rounder! He is gonna be a stud in the NFL! I am very excited to get this card back!

Tyler Eifert - 1/1 - 22 days!

Justin
Gadsden86
Great return man. I went 2 weeks w/o a thing and got one in yesterday i need to scan it but always great to get one in after a slump.

Today I got a very nice and forgot about envelope! Todays success is from one of my favorite slot receivers and former Colt of all time, Brandon Stokley!!!! I sent this card to the Denver Broncos back in February and just totally forgot about it! This is truly a great Christmas present!

Brandon Stokley - 1/1 - 261 days!

Finally something in the mailbox! Today I got an envelope from former ND tailback Bob Gladieux! Gladieux played for ND from 1966-68 and was a member of the '66 National Championship Team! In 1969 he was drafted by the Boston Patriots. He inscribed my ND card " '66 Nat. Champs! Go Irish We will rise again". He also included a nice note! Awesome addition for my ND collection!

Bob Gladieux - 1/1 - 6 days!

Today was probably one of my best TTM days as far as number of envelopes goes! The first envelope is from former ND QB Daryle Lamonica! Not only was Lamonica the starting QB but he also served as the punter for 3 years with a 37.2 yard average! The second envelope is from argueably the biggest NFL Draft bust in the history of the NFL and also a member of the Colts Tony Mandarich! An all american offensive lineman from Michigan St. and #2 pick in the 1989 NFL draft by the Green Bay Packers! Tony played for the Colts in 1998. The third envelope is from current ND linebacker David Posluszny! David is a solid special teamer who is slated to get more Linebacker action this year, David's brother Paul is currently a linebacker for the Buffalo Bills! The Fourth envelope is probably my favorite because it is for my brothers Bear's TTM collection that I am doing for him, this envelope is from current Bear's WR Johnny Knox! Overall I think this is a killer TTM day and I am super hyped about it!

Daryle Lamonica - 1/1 - 8 days!
Tony Mandarich - 1/1 - 12 days!
David Posluszny - 1/1 - 93 days!
Johnny Knox - 1/1 - 219 days!

Today brought more TTM goodies! The first envelope was from Anthony Castonzo! Castonzo was the Colts 2011 1st round draft pick and currently starts on the offensive line. Super excited about this return! The second envelope was from Derek Landri! Landri is a former defensive tackle for Notre Dame and is currently on the Philadelphia Eagles roster! Overall I think I did pretty good, I was surprised to get the Landri back due to the fact that I haven't had good success sending to the Eagles!

Derek Landri - 1/1 - 46 days!
Anthony Castonzo - 2/2 - 76 days!

Today was a 2 envelope kind of day! The first envelope was from former ND safety Pat Terrell! Pat was a 2nd round draft pick in 1990 by the Los Angeles Rams! I counted this one as a goner just due to other successes I had seen from him as being pretty quick. The next envelope may go down as my all time favorite, not because he is famous but because he is from my hometown and more specifically one street over from where I lived for 24 years! This envelope is from former Baltimore Colts tackle Sam Ball!!! Sam was a 1st round draft pick by the colts in 1966! He also played in and won Super Bowl V! Overall extremely happy about this mail day!

Pat Terrell - 2/2 - 275 days!
Sam Ball - 1/1- 4 days!!! (my quickest return, he signed my 1967 Philadelphia colts team card)

Tonight when I got home from work I was excited to see that I had 2 more of my envelopes waiting for me! The first envelope is from Tom Tupa! Tom was a backup QB for the Colts during the 1992 season, another cool thing about Tom is the fact that he was a pro bowl punter as well as a decent QB! The next envelope is from Clarence Verdin! Clarence is a former 2 time pro bowl WR/KR for the Colts! He played for the Colts from 1988-1993. I love coming home from work to find TTM's waiting for me!

Tom Tupa - 1/1 - 5 days!
Clarence Verdin - 2/2 - 11 days!

The next envelope is from current Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians! Bruce was the O-Coordinator for the Steelers last season! The 3rd and final envelope is from THE HEAD COACH of my Colts Chuck Pagano!!! Chuck was the defensive coordinator for the Baltimore Ravens last season and has extensive coaching experience in College (Miami, Boise St. and North Carolina) as well as the NFL (Ravens, Browns and Raiders)! Super hyped about this mail day, I hope this streak doesn't end!
