Mailed on 3/4/09 and received 3/3 back on 3/26/09. Very excited to see this one come back so quickly. An active NHL allstar with a 22 days turnaround time is pretty awesome. Interesting signature but all three of the cards look great with the black sharpie that Mr. Wideman signed with. Another return from a Boston Bruins, I'm glad to see that one of the best teams in the league takes the time to sign TTM. Mr. Wideman is a emerging star in the NHL and will be on the Bruins blue line for a very long time. Cards were mailed to the Boston Bruins

Mailed on 2/25/09 and received 1/2 back on 3/26/09. A very nice return, I saw a few Bradon Phillips returns coming out of Red Spring Training so I decided to give it a try. Mr. Phillips kept one of my cards, it was an older card of him in a Indians uniform. I'm glad he signed this card and kept that one. Bradon has really emerged as a power 2B and is fun to watch. I'm very happy to add this card to my collection. Cards were mailed to the Reds Spring Training site. Today I also received back my Chien Ming Wang card that I mailed to Yankees ST but the only thing was it was unsigned... odd but whatever.

Mailed on 7/5/08 and received 1/1 back on 3/23/09. Pleasantly surprised to see this baby come back! I've seen a bunch of other Brian Campbell TTM successes and I mailed this one out a long time ago so I figured my card must have gotten lost somewhere along the way. But my card was found and returned. Campbell is a tough autograph to get in person, he's often rushing from place to place taking the back way to avoid as many hounds as possible. But I guess he doesn't mind signing in his free time as much. Mr. Brian Campbell has been an offensive force this season and has really helped on a young Hawks blueline. But Brian has at times played very poorly and cost my Hawks a game or two. But overall he's been a major plus for the squad. Card is signed nicely in black sharpie. Card was mailed to the Chicago Blackhawks.
Mailed on 3/11/09 and received 2/2 back on 3/23/09. Holy cow! A lightning fast return from a star in the NHL. Mr. Ryan Smyth has been one of the most consistent producers in the NHL for years and I'm really excited to get these back. As many of you know, mailing to the Avs usually results in a pre-signed oversized card, which is nice but its not your own signed cards. So I mailed these out to the Avs practice rink and I received a fast response back! Awesome cards nice signature very happy. Cards were mailed to the Colorado Avs practice arena.

Mailed on 1/14/09 and received 1/1 on 3/21/09. Sweet! Mr. Jason Spezza was nice enough to sign my 09 Victory card for me. I love it when you get a great return back like this one. I mailed this one to Canada but I don't have any return postage here to the states so I always put a dollar in the envelope to cover shipping costs. Not only was Mr. Spezza nice enough to mail the card but he also returned my dollar. Class act, very nice of Mr. Spezza to do all that for me. Card was mailed to the Ottawa Senators.
Mailed on 3/5/09 and received 1/1 back on 3/20/09. Nice return, signed in thin blue sharpie on the bottomish part of the card. Mr. Blackburn is a solid young pitcher and a great TTM signer. Mr. Blackburn has a very nice signature which is pretty legible compared to most autographs you see. It looks like he really takes his time signing. Card was mailed to the Minnesota Twins ST site.
Mailed on 2/23/09 and received 2/2 back on 3/19/09. A former Blackhawk and a long time NHL'er, I'm very happy to add these to my collection. Mr. Smolinski has an interesting autograph but it looks good on both of these cards. Both cards were signed in black sharpie. Cards were mailed to Mr. Bryan Smolinski's home.
Mailed on 2/24/09 and received 2/2 back on 3/19/09. Very nice return, I still have hope that J.R. can be the catcher of the future for the Astros. Mr. Towles struggled last year but is still in my opinion a very good offensive backstop. JR signed both of my cards very nicely in thin blue sharpie. Cards were mailed to the Astros spring training site.

Mailed on 3/4/09 and received 3/3 back on 3/16/09. Wow 12 days for a current NHL'er awesome! I'm also glad this one came back so quickly because one of the cards is a dual jersey with one of Mr. Tollefsen's teammates on it Rostislav Klesla. I kinda hinted in the letter that I wanted to also get Mr. Klesla to sign the card as well, maybe sending him the hint to get Rostislav to sign it but...no dice. That's OK though this way I can send to Rostislav Klesla as well and get a few other cards signed as well. In a previous post, I said that the Boston Bruins are one of the best signing teams TTM but Columbus, in my opinion is by far the class of the NHL in signing TTM. I've almost gotten every response back from them that I have sent out. Very happy with this success all the cards are signed in thin black sharpie. Cards were mailed to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Mailed on 1/6/09 and received 3/4 back on 3/14/09. I know, this is the 4th response I've gotten back from Mr. Havlat. I mailed this one out right after I received my 1st response back from him hoping to get another fast response. I figured the cards I mailed to him over a year ago were long gone. But a few days later I got my cards back that I mailed to Mr. Havlat over a year ago. So if I had waited a few more days I doubt I would have even mailed these cards out. I feel guilty sending so much stuff to Marty, I really appreciate a huge star like Mr. Havlat to sign so much TTM. The cards look great, especially the Upper Deck Ice card. Marty Havlat is having a huge year with the Hawks, in my opinion he has been the Hawks MVP because of his consistent play this year. He is finally healthy so Mr. Havlat is finally able to showcase his out of this world abilities that he has. I really hope the Hawks can work something out and re-sign him for a few more years to really help this young crew of Hawks for many years to come. I'm done sending cards to Mr.Havlat, he has more then satisfied my desire for signed cards from him. Cards were mailed to the Chicago Blackhawks.
Mailed on 2/24/09 and received 1/1 back on 3/13/09. Great card!! This is my first ever basketball return. I won't call myself a huge basketball fan but I'll sit down on a slow night and watch a basketball game. The reason I sent to Mr. Jason Kidd was the website I use to see who is currently signing (http://www.sportscollectors.net/) has a basketball page and I looked at it one day and Mr. Kidd had a bunch of quick responses on there so I figured I'd give him a shot. I bought this card on ebay without seeing a picture of the card and was kind of disappointed because there's a lot of other people in the picture other then Jason Kidd. But Jason signed the card right over himself and it looks better then I thought it would. I'm excited to see this one come back so quickly from a superstar in the NBA. Card was mailed to the Dallas Mavericks.

Mailed on 2/25/09 and received 2/3 back on 3/12/09. Mr. Danny Graves kept one of the cards I sent him but thats ok I'm glad he signed these two cards for me. I like the fact that he added a bible verse on the cards, I think thats a cool touch. Both of the cards are smeared a little bit but its nothing to bad. Mr. Graves was a great closer for a long time with the Reds and I hope he can get his career rolling again and end on a good note. Cards were mailed to the Astros Spring Training site.
Mailed on 2/23/09 and received 2/2 back on 3/11/09. Both of these cards are signed beautifully in blue sharpie. A very clean thin signature and both of the cards have good areas that the autograph can be seen very nicely. Yeahhh another Red Wing but Mr. Cleary was a Hawk for a while and Mr. Cleary is a tough hardnosed player and I'm glad to add these cards to my collection. Cards were mailed to the Detroit Red Wings.

Mailed on 10/6/08 and received 1/1 back on 3/9/09. Woohoo Johnny the Captain Toews signed my Victory Game Breakers card in black sharpie. He was even nice enough to sign the card in the spot I asked him to sign it. This Toews autograph actually looks pretty good compared to other autographs I've have seen or own. I got Mr. Toews to sign two cards for me at two different time earlier this season at a Hawks practice and both of them looked terrible! He basically ruined a $15 rookie card I had of him with the thing I believe he called an autograph. But I can't hold that against the captain I know he probably gets swamped with autograph requests everywhere he goes so all is forgiven. I'm so happy to get this card back. Card was mailed to the Chicago Blackhawks.
Mailed on 11/24/08 and received 2/1 back on 3/9/09. A very nice return, Mr. Exelby personalized my card and index card. I like it when players personalize things on their own because it shows they take their time signing mail and I appreciate that. The autograph is another story though haha. I guess you could call this a creative interpretation of his name. I'm very happy with both of these! Card was mailed to the Thrashers.
Mailed on 2/24/09 and received 2/2 back on 3/9/09. A very quick return from a current MLB'er and a Red Sox. I'm not a huge fan of the Red Sox or Yankees due to the outrageous amounts of coverage they get but Okajima is a good player and I love the Allen and Ginter cards. Quick little signature and both cards and both look great. Signed in nice bold blue sharpie. I'm very happy with both cards and its very nice of Mr. Okajima to sign for his fans. Cards were mailed to the Red Sox spring training site.

Mailed on 2/24/09 and received 2/2 back on 3/6/09. Great return, this is the second time that I've mailed to Mr. Matsui but the first time I've gotten my cards back. Crazy looking signature, I'm very happy to add these to my collection. Kaz Matsui has never really played and entire 162 game season in the MLB, I think his high is around 110 games in a season. Hopefully Mr. Matsui will be healthy for the entire year and give my Astros a lift and at the beginning of the order that they so desperately need. Great return time from a MLB star! Cards were mailed to the Astros Spring Training Site.
Mailed on 12/30/08 and received 3/3 back on 3/6/09. Good return, took a little longer then I expected but I'm still happy to get these cards back. Mr. Kozlov was nice enough to sign the three cards that I sent him. One of the cards is smeared a little bit, but the other cards look good. Cards were mailed to the Washington Capitals.

Mailed on 2/13/09 and received 4/4 back on 3/5/09. Nice return from a solid NHL'er. All of the cards are signed in blue sharpie so the autograph are kind of hard to see on these darker cards. But Mr. Klatt has a nice signature and I'm very happy to add these cards to my colleciton. Cards were mailed to Mr. Klatts home.
Mailed on 2/13/09 and received 4/4 back on 3/2/09. This is a very nice return, Mr. Samuelsson kept two of my cards and instead signed both of the index cards I used to pad the envelope. His autograph looks great on the one he signed in black. The cards also look great in silver. Great sig glad he took his time with these. Cards were mailed to Mr. Samuelssons home.
