Topps Yankees Project: A bunch of requests out today

On my way home from work, I stopped at the post office and dropped a couple of trade packages off, as well as sixteen TTM requests. I have no life. All of these requests were for my Topps Yankees Project. I'm really trying to get the 1960s done, so that is the main decade I sent out. I also sent a few from the 1970s, and a few from the 2000s.

Here are the lucky players that received a letter from me:

Mike Hegan - sent a 1968 Topps
Michael Dunn - 2010 Topps (sent to Marlins spring training)
Gene Michael - 1968 and 1970 Topps (preferably would use the 1970 in my project)
Javier Vazquez - 2005 Topps (sent to Marlins spring training)
Bob Watson - 1980 and 1981 Topps (preferably use the 1980 Topps)
Jack Cullen - 1966 Topps
Joe DeMaestri - 1961 Topps
Jon Lieber - 2005 Topps
Fritz Peterson - 1968 and 1973 Topps
Dooley Womack - 1967 Topps
Al Downing - 1964 Topps
Ed Herrmann - 1976 Topps
Chris Hammond - 2004 Topps
Bud Daley - 1964 Topps
Jake Gibbs - 1969 and 1971 Topps
Fred Stanley - 1978 Topps

Whew, that was a lot of stamps and letter writing. Hopefully I get these guys back with pretty signatures on them!


  1. I just got Bob Watson's autograph a few weeks ago, and I'm pretty sure that Michael Dunn signed a card for me last spring.

    I'm not sure how many TTM requests you plan to send out, but you might want to think about joining SportsCollectors.Net if you're not a member. It's a great site that will give you an idea about which players are likely to sign autographs through the mail.

  2. Excellent, I'll look into it. Thanks for the tip!

  3. Jon Lieber is a pretty methodical signer. I've been meaning to send a request out to him.

  4. I'd love to get the Lieber back signed. I really liked him for the one season he pitched for the Yanks.
