TTM Success – August 4, 2009

Nice surprise in the mailbox today here at FlippingWax. Out of my most recent TTM attempts I have received back yet a few more signed baseball cards, this time they came from Roberto Alomar. This was an interesting TTM success, as I sent 3 cards to Roberto Alomar, and he signed 2 out of the 3, but returned all 3 – I always offer for the player to keep any cards that appeal to them or if they want to give them to friends or family – who knows maybe his sharpie ran out…

I always liked Roberto Alomar as a 2nd baseman growing up, he was no doubt a talented player that bounced around to a few different teams in his 17 year career. He has many impressive stats from his career, but I am most impressed with his 12 consecutive All Star games and 10 gold gloves as a 2nd baseman!

And then there was the one he didn’t sign… maybe his Shapie ran out, maybe he is a Topps fan and a hater of Upper Deck – who knows, but I am pleased with 2/3 on this TTM success – thanks Mr. Alomar.

TTM autographs are a great hobby and the more I get returns the more interested I am in trying harder players or just getting more TTM attempts out there – anyone else get any good returns lately?
