TTM Success #20 – I wasn’t confident this one was coming back

One of the first things I did when I decided to start sending for autographs through the mail was look through my vintage cards.  I looked to see if there were gentlemen still signing that I had cards of, especially if I picked the cards up cheap.

I wasn’t sure that this one would come back.  On the SCF forum, the most recent success came in May 2015.  It’s not uncommon that people move and items get returned for that reason.  There are many other reasons it might not come back as well.  Early on, I’ve stuck to sending out to those that others have had recent success with.

Even growing up an hour south of Pittsburgh, I hadn’t heard of Frank Varrichione.  Perhaps because he played a little before my time.  I’m always going to be happy with a signed 1955 Bowman card, however.
