TTM Return: Tom Milone

Leave a comment

Hello everyone, I know its been a while since I posted anything. I could write about how ive had nothing to write or ive been bored with the blog or anything else but thats not the case.

I dont really have an explanation for you all so lets move on shall we?

Here is a TTM return from Tom Milone I recieved last week

image

Thats a signed 2012 Topps chrome Xfractor. Thats not all I recieved though. I also sent him a 2012 chrome base and a 2012 Topps RC.

That isnt the only ttm return ive gotten. Things have been slow in that part of my collection, but ive also gotten a return from Nate Schierholtz and Joe Jacoby.

On the non-ttm side of my collection I managed to get a complete set of 2011 Topps football. Now I have just the SPs and the factory exclusive cards.

It may be a while before im actively posting again so just be patient. But dont worry, im thinking of a lot of things I want to write about.

Thats all for today….

TTM Return: Tony Zendejas

Hi everyone! You may be wondering why I havent posted anything since the end of june. Well its not that ive had nothing to post, I do but the thing is ive been waiting for a few cards to come in so that I can do a huge post.

I suppose ill just break it off into pieces or something. Anyway, the card you see at the top of the post is a signed Tony Zendejas card. Im still doing the 1988 Topps auto set but im on and off with it.

I never thought that zendejas did ttm but I saw a return and thought, why not?

Looks like he signed it “dan” or “don” but its tony. This brings me to about 21 cards signed from the set. I got 2 of these signed along with a 1989 Topps and a 1989 team card of his as well. So in all 4 cards signed, but im keeping 3 for myself.

On another note, I got 3 cards for my 1981-82 Topps set so ill post an update to that in a few days.

TTM Return: Ray Childress

Recently, I got a ttm return from Ray Childress. This wasnt any ordinary request though.

Im still doing the 1988 Topps football autograph set (slowly) but its still going. Anyway, I got that signed.

The out of the ordinary thing was those custom relic cards. If youve been reading youll remember that a few weeks ago I got some custom relics made from a member on the blowout cards forum. I got those signed, however one was missing the relic piece.

Oh well, cant really do much about it. I like it and ill have a few more made!

Thats it for now..enjoy!

A Big Weekend for Mail

Leave a comment

Every so often there are weekends in which I get a lot of mail. Yes I realize its Wednesday. To me 4 letters usually isnt much unless theyre TTMs or anything but I had a bit of everything this last weekend. Heres what I got….

image

First is an Elvin Bethea card I got from Listia. For those who dont know its from the 1975 Topps set. A pretty good set, I got the card only because I found out Elvin Bethea did TTM but for a small fee. Ill get to it eventually but even if I dont send it off its still a great addition to my collection.

image

Next is a TTM return from Ray Guy. One of the best Punters of his time, he was kind enough to sign 3 cards for me which ill also show here.

image

The card above is from the 1985 Topps set. This will be going into my set binder shortly….and lastly….

image

A 1980 Topps card. I had originally gotten the card from Listia and had actually wanted this card for a relative of mine who is a Raiders fan. Since it is from their 2nd Super Bowl win (1980) ill be giving him this one.

Not only did I get that but I also got a few cards from some Blowout Cards Forum members. The first one here is from SDCardguy24. He was on his way to an autograph signing but unfortunately could not get the people I wanted to sign.

I was okay with that and my money was returned and cards unsigned. However I was also greeted by a nice surprise…

image

A Bowman Kyle Boller auto!. Sure it is an IP autograph and it may be a Bowman card but it was nice of him to give me a signed card even though I didnt ask for it. Thanks!

And lastly, some cards from another member lawjawjones.

image

On the forum he made a thread a while back about some custom relics he made himself. I saw them and thought “they look pretty good”. So I asked if he can make me a few and kindly offered to do them. A while later (which was this past weekend) I had 6 custom relic cards!

image

Three Sammy Winder cards, a Bobby Hebert and 2 more. Theyre all from the 1988 Topps set. Unfortunately as I was going through them I accidentally ripped the jersey card relic a bit. Thats my favorite one out of the lot! You can see the it in the first picture.

image

And the last 2 I mentioned. Ray Childress cards. I had 2 of each done because I want to see how they would look signed and also to give these guys a card of their own.

All these relics that I had made are from the 1988 Football set because its one of my favorite designs. Im thinking of having an entire relic set made but for now, 6 cards is pretty good.

We also traded a few cards. I sent some brewers parallels and got some Roberto Clemente cards in return Thanks lawjaw.

And thats it for now. Thanks for reading….

Ok heres a return from former giants punter sean landeta

image

The entire card isnt visible. Mr Landeta was kind enough to sign all 3 cards I sent.

Sent: 5-2-12
Recieved: 5-21-12

I thought I was only going to get 1 back since I saw online most only got 1 out of however many they sent. All 3 cards I sent were 1988 topps cards. I also wrote in the letter I sent him to keep a card and as ive said repeatedly I got all 3 back. This puts me at 3 cards for my signed set. 390 to go!
