TTM Success: Paul O'Neill
I’ve gotten some really good TTMs this year, but this one is the best. I’ve seen others have success with Paul O’Neill over the years, but I could never get a return from him. That changed when I came home to a SASE post-marked from Cincinnati.
Now, I’ve sent O’Neill a few requests over the past year – both to his home and to the Yankees. I’m not entirely sure where this came from. While it was post-marked from Cincy, I could have sworn I sent this card to him at Yankee Stadium. Who knows? I need to keep more detailed records of the exact cards I send.
All I know is that I was thrilled to open the envelope and have this card slide out with a beautiful blue signature scrolled across it. Of course, I wish I had a sent a different card, as this 1998 Score is rather ugly. I tend to be careless sometimes with the cards I choose, but I am glad that the signature stuck well and didn’t bubble, and that it’s easy to read over the image.
