Top 5 TTMs from 2017

Out of curiosity, I wanted to see how many TTM successes I had in 2017. In all, I got 40 back during the year 2017. I sent out 143, although a few that came back were sent in 2015. I actually sent out 150 in 2016, so I was pretty consistent. Most were sent out in the first half of 2017, as I really slacked off from late summer onward.

While I appreciate all forty of my TTM successes, here are 5 memorable ones:

5. Tyler Clippard
This was special because it checked of 2017 for my Topps Yankees Project.

4. Brooks Robinson
2017 saw Robinson signing autographs for free or a very minimal fee compared to what he had in the past. I was happy to add his autograph to my collection. I included a $5 donation.

3. Don Mattingly
I was thrilled to get this one back that was sent in 2016. I love the card choice here!

2. CC Sabathia
This was a lucky return, as it went to my old address and was in a stack of mail that was held by the new tenants.

1. Roger Clemens
I took a chance writing a nice note, and received this back without a fee. Topps Turkey cards look awesome signed!

Hopefully there will be another nice assortment of TTM autographs in 2018!

Happy New Year to all, and have a safe night!


  1. Sweet cards and signatures. It must be a thrilled to get these back in the mail!

  2. Very nice. My top 5 can't compete with yours.

  3. Happy New Years! Some nice ones for sure.

  4. That's awesome. One of these day I'll start doing that myself. It looks like a lot of fun.

  5. Solid names there. I'd love to eventually add another Clemens autograph to my collection.
