Thought I would start a new thread to list my success in one spot. This weekend I got back Rich Hand after 198 days. He signed my two 1971 Topps I had added and answered my questions. He also included a 1974 Topps. Love freebies. Last week I got back my Whitey Ford on a 2009 Goudey mini. I sent 5 dollars with it, but since I had seen some successes recentley for no fee I thought what the heck. For the most part it looks good but I have 2 issues. The end of the Y in Whitey doesn't loop under Whitey and the F in Ford doesn't connect all the way through and go the the O. I don't have a scanner to show you, but compared to some successes from Sport Card Forum it's comperable. Let me know what you think though. I am not in this for any money, but for the fun of collecting, but would hate to think I have something I don't and then pass down to my son.

been on a roll

This morning went to box to check mail after dropping daughter off at school. Had some nice successes. I got back my Bob Cerv on a '53 reprint with 5.00 fee included in 10 days. He did not answer my questions. I also got back Eddie Carnett who played with the '44 White Sox. Wrote a nice letter and signed both index cards and included a stat sheet from his 20 years in baseball. Last I got back Ben Crane golfer personlized to me from an email success in 35 days. Love freebies. Good luck and happy graphing.

See you in the funny papers

Got back my letter to Mort Walker yesterday. I had added an index card in which he drew a picture of Beetle Bailey and signed index card. 9 days. Cool piece to add to my collection. Metrotheme, thank you for the link on Eddie Carnett. Quite a story and quite a man. Getting to interview people like Eddie must make for a very interesting job. Kind of jealous. Happy graphing.

1 Dog

Got back my Lance Johnson on a 1991 Topps in 91 days. he didn't respond to any of my questions but I was glad to get this one back. I also got back Frank Baumann who pitched mostly for the White Sox and Red Sox in the 50's and 60's. He signed 2 index cards and responded to one of my questions in 14 days. I did get a return to sender from Ralph Kiner. I had really been hoping for this one to come back to me signed but oh well. Happy graphing.

It took 2 Summers

I mailed out a letter to Champ Summers in November 2009 and got it back this weekend. 2 years 10 days later. He signed my letter and answered one of my questions. I guess he finally got a chance to write back, and glad to get it back. Happy graphing.

Some of you may know, but tomorrow morning my wife is going to be induced and deliver our son. This is the best Christmas present ever. I have been so crazy with anticipation. My nine year old daughter has been the one to keep her cool. Anyway, to the returns. Had some good ones. Got back Bud Selig on a 1991 Topps Tom Treblehorn. Since it was a Brewers card thought it would be cool. 17 days. I got back Dick Bokelmann on a '53 Topps reprint and 2 index cards in 47 days. Bill Lee returned my letter and answered my questions but kept my 1971 Topps card. 206 days. Really needed it for my project, so if anyone has an extra laying around let me know. Last I got my trade from Benson. 1971 Topps Mike Hershberger. Thanks Tim it looks great. Happy Graphing.

Hope everyone had a great Christmas and was safe. I had a wonderful time with family and new son. My wife got me a 2007 World Series ball signed by Jonathan Paplebon. Was so surprised and also a plaque with dirt from Fenway. Both certified from MLB. My wife is so great. Happy collecting.

End of year success

I got this card back on 12/31, but didn't have my date inwhich I sent so had to wait to post. I got back Leron Lee on a 1975 Topps. He also took the time to answer my questions about his career and is nephew Derrek Lee. Good way to end the year. Exactly 300 successes including in person. Good year!!! Happy collecting.
