A while back, I sent a TTM request to one of my all-time favorite Yanks - 2009 World Series MVP Hideki "Godzilla" Matsui. I figured he probably gets a lot of mail, especially from Japanese fans, but now that he's with the A's there might be less of it. Well, after two months, yesterday I received this beauty in the mail:

No way! This has got to be one of my best all-time successes. I just hope it's real. I compared it to some other Matsui autos on line and it looks pretty legit. His signature is sort of inconsistent to begin with. Anyhow, I'm thrilled to get this back and thank Godzilla for being one of the classiest players of the last 10 years.
