Josh Hamilton

Mailed on 11/5/10 and received 1/1 back on 12/20/10. One of the best stories in sports in a long time, Mr. Hamilton is living proof that it is never too late to turn your life around. He is one of the most talented athletes in sports today and has been able to show that in the last few years. The last two baseball returns I've received have been the league MVP's (Joey Votto-NL, Josh Hamilton-AL) Its awesome that these superstars are still willing to take the time and sign. I know some of you may wonder, "Why did you send a baseball request in November?" Good question, Josh has always been a pretty good signer but I've noticed it usually takes a long time to do his mail but he gets it all done. I was in a writing mood at the time so I sent it to the Rangers hoping for it sometime in the distant future. To my surprise it came back quickly. Awesome return overall. Card was mailed to the Rangers.

Jeff Taffe

Mailed on 11/23/10 and received 2/2 back on 12/17/10. A solid veteran who is currently playing for the Rockford Icehogs. I've gotten to see him play a few times this season and he is a very solid player. I like getting these old veterans when they are in the AHL because it's usually a pretty quick return. Beautifully signed, I'm very happy with these. Cards were mailed to the Icehogs.

Pekka Rinne

Mailed on 11/13/10 and received 1/1 back on 12/11/10. A great return from a rising star in net for the Preds. Nashville has all sorts of talent in net and its been frustrating to watch them get the better of my Hawks more often then not. The Hawks Predators playoff series was a great one for any fan to see. This card is nicely signed in blue sharpie just the way I like it. Card was mailed to the Predators.

Nick Boynton

Mailed on 11/5/10 and received 3/3 back on 12/9/10. Mr. Boynton has done a solid job in the last year for the Hawks on their blueline. Recently he has fallen out of graces with Coach Q lately but his veteran presence is a good thing for the Hawks. He signed these three cards in kind of a crappy sharpie but they still look pretty good. Cards were mailed to the Hawks.

Bobby Hull

Mailed on 10/25/10 and received 4/4 back on 12/8/10. What a great person Bobby Hull is. One of the all time greats in the NHL and a Blackhawks legend, Bobby continues to give back by signing for his fans. Beautiful signatures on all four of these cards, even switched sharpies to makes the cards look the best. Bobby has a reputation as a great guy and he lives up to it every day. Cards were mailed to the Blackhawks.
