Unsolved mysteries - TTM style

Out of the hundreds of TTMs I've sent out, I've experienced a lot. I've had return to senders or "REFUSED". I've had cards returned unsigned or with price lists. I've gotten cards back that were different than the one I've sent.
However, yesterday was a first. My wife texted me at work and said that I got an envelope back that said "Received without contents." Huh? I figured the TTM envelope returning to me had the card ripped out or came up in the mail. I was surprised to see that it wasn't a response back, but my original request!

I'm not sure what happened here. I could have failed to seal the envelope in haste when I sent it, or it could have naturally come undone. Someone could have opened it and swiped the card, although I'm not sure who would really want a 2013 Bowman Mark Montgomery. Based on the beat up envelope, I'd say that my request went through a lot, opened during the shipping process, and the contents spilled out.

I'll definitely try this one again.


  1. I've never had that happen. That really sucks.

  2. Bummer... best of luck this time around.
