My First Three TTM Attempts

I’ve been saying for awhile that I was going to start sending out some TTM (through the mail) autograph requests.  I’ve slowly picked up a few cards to get signed.  Last Monday, I sent out my first three requests.  It didn’t take much research to know that all three of these will be successful.  All three are very good about signing and returning items quickly.  It’s very possible that I will have all of them back by the end of this week.

The reason for my procrastinating was just not knowing “what” to do with confidence.  I’m not sure why I overthought it.  Jason wrote two pieces on here about what to do and I just used his suggestions.

To find the (best) address to send to, I used the Sports Card Forum TTM Manager.  Also, navigating that part of their site helped me determine what ones I want to send soon.  The ones that others have recently marked as successes are the ones that I want to send out.

Below are the three that I sent out Monday.

I just thought it was funny that I sent it to “The King” Richard Petty and it has an Elvis stamp.  I actually purchased a set of these cards and want to get as many signed as possible.  The other one I just picked up as a single from COMC.

Like the Petty cards, one of these if from a set that I picked up and the other was a single that I picked up on COMC.

I posted Saturday about picking up four Raymond Berry cards from Invest In Baseball.  These are the two that I sent for my first request to Mr. Berry.

I will be posting results when they arrive!
