TTM Success: Alfonso Soriano

I've had a very empty mailbox lately, both from a lack of purchases, but also from a lack to TTM requests. I haven't been very inspired to send this summer. I go in waves where I get very into it, and then go three months without sending anything.

I hit a mini wave of inspiration a few weeks ago, and sent two cards to Yankee great Alfonso Soriano.

I was thrilled to receive both cards I sent signed yesterday in the mail.
I have wanted a Soriano autograph for a long time, and was even looking at some of his certified autographs recently. Now, I don't feel that pressure.

As Brian mentioned on Twitter, he left room for Jeter to sign the 2013 Topps!

While I admittedly don't love the 2013 design, I was indeed at that game where the photo was taken and saw both Jeter and Soriano homer. Then Soriano won the game with a walk-off single in the bottom of the 9th. So cool to have him sign a card from a game I have a fond memory of during the forgettable 2013 season.

Thanks to Mr. Soriano for graciously signing these cards and making a very happy Yankees fan.


  1. Cool. Great to have a signed image from a game you were at. That makes the auto that much extra special.

  2. Nice mail day from Soriano and like the Capt said above the memory associated with the card is really special.

  3. That's super cool that you have a card with a photo taken at a game you attended. It's one of the only reasons I'd actually go out of my way to purchase a Topps Now card.

    P.S. Congratulations on the TTM success.

  4. Congrats on the TTM! And signed from a game you went to is extra cool. I've always enjoyed Soriano when he was on the Cubs.

  5. Congrats on the TTM. Really cool to get a signed card from a game you attended. Alfonso was a beast in his prime.
