A TTM disaster
Whatever player this was did not use the peel and stick adhesive, and the envelope came back completely empty. How do I know? Well, the sticker was still on there, unpeeled.
In fairness, I've had a great success rate with these. One time, Luis Torrens didn't seal, but the card make it back. This envelope was empty. I can understand a player who gets a lot of mail simply forgetting or overlooking this step. It happens.
What bums me out is that I have no record of who this was. I have heard of people initialing the return envelope, which I've always been reluctant to do. I like the surprise and the thrill of opening the envelope without knowing what is in it. However, instances like this really bum me out. I can't even re-try the player because I don't know who it was.
I think I will now start initialing the envelopes...maybe next to my name in the return address, or maybe inside the actual envelope. I am just so down about now knowing who this was, that I simply cannot let this happen again.
