Last week I sent out some baseball cards to get signed by some ex-Dodgers. This is my first endeavor into the fun of TTM autographs. I did some research on the subject before I mailed out any cards or letters. One of the tips that I was told about was to be patient. I was expecting to wait weeks before I got anything in return.
But, Jay Howell came through super quick. I sent out a letter to Howell on December 8th and got three autographed cards back on December 15th. Howell must have gotten my letter and immediately signed my cards. He then must have stuffed my SASE right into his mailbox.
Howell must have been moved by my kind words.
I have seen a handful of 1988 Dodger addresses on the Sports Card Forum. I will try my luck at that. So far, so good in the TTM department.
He ended up not keeping any of them. One of the other tips that I got was to offer the player a card to keep as a token of thanks. I will continue to follow this pointer and hope the player would enjoy a card for himself.
But, even Jay Howell must be tired of seeing late 80s and early 90s cards of himself. Howell holds the record for most '91 Donruss Jay Howell cards ever seen in a lifetime.
I really appreciate these cards. I will keep you guys up to date on anymore TTM returns that I receive
