|The Miggy 8X10 I received on accident.|
There is some crazy shit on the internet. Recently, I found the craziest. The Detroit Tigers (bless their hearts) used to do run an autograph for donation deal on their website. In fact, the 2016 version is still posted on their homepage under the Detroit Tiger Foundation heading in the Community tab. I reached out to them to see if they still run this program they are promoting on their website and they did not respond. If you tried sending TTM requests to the Tigers in past years you used to receive your crap back with a donation form for this program in return. Whatever, I get it, it makes money for different foundations supposedly. Many of the names listed for autographs on the current page haven't been Tigers for a while.
Anyway, years ago I used this program to get a Miguel Cabrera autograph. It cost me $60 and I sent them an 8X10 of a picture I took of Miggy in 2006 and they sent me back a very clean looking autographed 8X10 but NOT my picture. So they either tossed mine in the trash for whatever reason or sent it to somebody else on accident. It pissed me off and I have never used the service for an autograph again.
Recently this has popped up on the Detroit Tigers site:
