Hi,

I've had my first success today, from a tried and true TTM superstar:

Henri Richard -13 days

I also has a couple of recent In Person successes. A buddy and I did a road trip to catch the Red Wings and Blackhawks season ending home and home series. While at the game in Detroit on April 8, Ted lindsay was on the concourse signing his book:

Then the next day, while waiting for pizza in Chicago, just outside of Giordano's on Rush Street, we bumped into none other than Mr.T:

Thats awesome! Looks like you had a good time!

Awesome successes! Mr. T! How does it get better than that!

Justin
gregorium
I pity the fool that isn't impressed by Mr. T! biggrin.gif

To top it off, I finally was in attendance for a Wings win, my first in 30 years! Their win in Chicago was the first time in about a dozen Wings games that I've attended where it finally happened. It's been frustrating, especially considering that my first Wings game was circa 1980 when Gretzky and the Oilers came to the Joe Louis Arena.

Congrats on your recent successes!

Nice additions, although Terrible Ted just isn't the same wearing the Hawks sweater...

It was for my friend who has the Blackhawk Flu. Unfortunately, its a terminal case for him. smile.gif

Failures stink but what can you do! You gonna resend with $$$? Congrats on the success!

Justin
rnpurdue
Nice success. Is $10 reasonable for Perreault? Just asking because I really don't know.....
gregorium
I have a hard time paying for an autograph through the mail. I can rationalize it if it's in person, but can't really do it TTM.

I've seen him sign for about $20-$25 at some shows, so if you want to add it to your collection, I guess TTM would be a lot cheaper. Again, my problem is that I can't rationalize paying for a TTM autograph.

Looking on eBay, there is a listing for the same two cards that I sent in, signed, for under $20. For the most part, they're listing for about $15 there, but there is one as low as $5.
whalerfan
That Illitch is sweet, congrats!
gregorium
Thank you sir! It was my second attempt, so happy to see it. Another Red Wing HOFer in the collection!

Another arrival today:

Dan Bylsma - 15 days

c/o Pittsburgh Penguins

Those cards look REALLY nice signed.

I love it when they sign with silver sharpies! Congrats on the success!

Justin
gregorium
Thanks guys. I hate when they try to sign it in blue or black on the front. I'm happy to just have them sign the back of the card, but love when they come through with the silver like this.

Mailbox has been dry. Only thing in it is cobwebs. sad.gif

On the plus side, my wife hooked me up with a Living Social deal this past weekend. It was for VIP access to the Legends Classic game (part of the HHOF weekend) and exclusive after-party. For those who don't know, the Legends Classic is the basically the Oldtimers game where the inductees are presented with their HHOF blazers and then later come out and join the others on the ice.

Anyway, it started with meeting 60 goal man Dennis Maruk during the intermission.
