Tony LaRussa! Yes!

I told my fiancee to get the mail and don't come back without an autograph. It had been a nearly a month since my last one. It was a joke but look what she threw at me when she returned. Tony LaRussa in Blue Sharpie. Sent out on 4/11/11. Mr. LaRussa is an awesome manager that is great to his fans.

Schlereth Shows Some Love...

Daniel Schlereth completed this card I had Ryan Perry sign at Tigerfest. I sent it out on 4/11/11 and got it back today. He even signed in blue ink like Perry did. Thanks Daniel! Definitely an awesome Tigers Bullpen piece. Just need Boesch and Raburn back to complete all the Tigers I sent out. I also received a St. Louis Cardinals Fan Pack today as well. Darn good day for a slow month. I got turned down by Jacoby Ellsbury a week or so ago as my card was returned unsigned along with a small print and not saying he was too much mail like Pedroia. I'm now 6/56 returned signed so far, 10/56 returned including non-signed cards.

HUGE DAY!

I was out of town for the weekend so I missed the mail Saturday. Today, I went to the mailbox hoping there would be two days worth of good stuff. To my surprise the mailbox wouldn't hold all the stuff I got today! Here is the list:
-Boston Bruins fan pack
-Houston Astros fan pack
-Detroit Red Wings fan pack
-Autographed Drury Brothers 8 x 10
-Milwaukee Brewers fan pack
-Montreal Canadiens fan pack
-Columbus Clippers pocket schedules
-Toledo Mudhens pocket schedules
-LA Dodgers fan pack
-LeHigh Valley IronPigs pocket schedules

All in all a horrible day for my mail carrier but the best day yet for me. I got t-shirts, hats, posters, magnets, cards, schedules, mouse pads, books, pictures, stickers, rally towels, folders, pencils, luggage tag and so non and so on. Can't believe all the sweet stuff. Still no sports autographs back though.

More fan packs, No sigs


Today, I got a Buffalo Sabres fan pack the highlight of which is a Ryan Miller magnet. I also received the holy grail of fan packs; the Boston Red Sox pack. They sent me a full size calendar, a Kevin Youkilis picture, some other stuff and Fenway Dirt. The Red Sox know how to excite their fans.

More let downs...


Brady Anderson got RTS. They did forward it to an address in California for me though. Unfortunately, I guess he can no longer be found there.
Brandon Inge got RTS as well. I sent him out and the next day the Tigers updated their website saying its a $10 donation for his signature on a card. Oh well, I will probably send out a check next time. I did receive a Tigers fan pack along with it though containing a pic of Inge and a pocket schedule.

Fan Packs

I've been sending out for fan packs from MLB teams and pocket schedules for minor league teams. Yesterday I received pocket schedules from the Pawtucket Red Sox. Today I received a fan pack from the Cleveland Indians and pocket schedules from the Scranton-Wilkes Barre Yankees. Haven't had any autographs come in for a while. Thinking about sending out a bunch more just have to buy more stamps. Interesting little tidbit: I saw that a guy got a LaRussa auto back after 12 days that he sent out on 4/20/2011. I sent to LaRussa earlier in April and have gotten nothing. So, hopefully mine is in the mail as well.
