Finally! A spring training TTM success

I sent out about 20 TTMs a few weeks ago at the start of spring training. I usually send a few more, but just didn't have the time this year. I sent to guys who I figured I'd have a good shot at getting real superstars, at least yet in their careers.

I expected a few back by now, but I've been batting 0-fer until a SASE showed up today. Yankees prospect Greg Bird signed my Bowman Chrome card. I wish I had sent the regular issue, as the signature may not have bubbled so much. I have a certified Bowman auto of Bird, but like the TTM success even more.

He's got a great bat, and if he doesn't stick at C, he'll play 1B. I look forward to following his progress this season.

  1. Congratulations. I have a feeling we'd have an easier time getting cards signed through the mail if we weren't fans of New York teams.
