Brandon Beachy

 I haven't sent out any requests in awhile, so I haven't gotten many back lately.  However, I got this nice card back from Spring Training after exactly 300 days!  Not a bad way to finish off finals week.  I sent Mr. Beachy two cards, and although I'm not positive, I believe the other was an individual card. Unfortunately he took that one, but I'm still happy with this one!

Ervin Santana

Got this sweet auto in a trade with Ryan from "O" No!!! Another Orioles Blog.  Had to give up an auto for it, but I think it was worth it.  Thanks for the great trade!

Wade Boggs

Actually thought I wasn't getting these back when I saw newer send outs were getting returned.  But, I got them both back signed!  Great success!

Alicia Sacramone

Was sort of disappointed with this success. A representative of Sole Impact had told me they would get Ms. Sacramone to sign an olympic card for me if I sent it to them.  So, I sent her two cards and after almost two months, I got back a signed postcard instead.  It is a nice autograph, but they mailed the actually signed card, and the USPS bent up the signed corner...I'm hoping I'll still get the cards back signed, but....

Oscar Pistorius

I've had a pretty good last few days TTM'ing, but this topped it all.  I believe it's authentic, but I'd appreciate any comments.  Only took about a month, and came with a letter thanking me for my support, and saying they had enclosed a signed photo as hopefully it's legit!

Kayla Harrison

signed 2 cards for the set, and included her own card!

Susan Francia

Signed 2 Cards for my set, and included her own signed photo!

Jason Motte

signed 1/1

Ben Zobrist

Been wanting his auto for awhile. He finally started signing again, and after some procrastination, I finally got it out.  Signed all 3 and added his own card!

Kristine Lilly

Another nice email success!

Hanna-Maria Seppala

I'll admit, when I opened this, I was like "who the heck is this". It had been about a month, and being an email success, I had totally forgotten about it.  Turns out it's Hanna-Maria Seppala, Finlandish swimmer!  Thanks so much!

Lauren Reynolds

The Australian BMX biker sent me a signed postcard through an email.  Never seen a signed postcard "mailed"...isn't it usual mailed in something?? Oh well, the mailmen did mess it up a little, but not too bad.  Another great success from an Olympian!!

Tyson Gay

this is a certified auto of Gay. #4 for the set!

Gwen Jorgensen

#3 in my Olympic hopefuls set...only 97 to go!  She signed two cards, personalizing the other one to me.

Nick Symmonds

Mr. Symmonds sent me one signed card via email.  #2 for my hopeful's set!  I'll set up a page for it once I get about 5 or so...inscribed the card"800"

Tucson Padres

Went to a game the other night.  Thought I was getting there before the gates even opened to do some graphing, but got there just in time for the first pitch.  Guess I didn't get the memo about them having a double  header!!!  Oh well, got autos before the second game, and after the last one.  Got about 15 autos, luckily it was a promo night, and I got a pack of Tucson Padres cards.  Didn't have one, so that was nice.  The gem tonight was getting Terry Kennedy.  

I got Dravecky to sign this card TTM a while ago and was hoping for this opportunity.  Looks pretty nice if I do say so myself!
