Update Overall

I looked at my database and I am 6/50. I have sent out 50 and gotten 6 autographs back and 2 return to senders along with 1 request for donation. 12%

Great day at the box today!

I passed by the mail lady loading my box today and noticed some nice packages being crammed in so I got excited. As soon as she took off I bolted to the mailbox and this is what I pulled:





6 LA Dodger Pocket Schedules
Angels rookie Hank Conger Autographed RC
Minnesota Wild fan pack
Toledo Mudhens fan pack
Hunting Legend Fred Eichler Auto'ed and personalized 8X10


What a day! The other day I forgot to post as well I got an auto'ed personalized 8X10 of professional hunter Tom Nelson too. Thank you so much Fred, Tom, Hank, Toledo Mudhens, the Wild and the Dodgers for the great stuff.

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
-Arizona Diamondbacks fan pack
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.

Welcome.

I recently took up the hobby of collecting autographs through the mail. I will update this blog as I collect.
