The TTM Season Has Begun

With the beginning of Spring Training comes the beginning of TTM autograph requests. I have stocked up on my forever stamps and baby powder. I will typically send a letter, return SASE, and 1 or 2 cards to a player. I don't collect signed balls or bats so I only send cards to get signed. I prefer cards without gloss, but baby powder can take care of that problem. Spring Training is the best time of year to make TTM requests. Often, players who don't sign during the season will sign some autographs during the spring. The spring is a good time to take some risks by sending requests to some of the more popular players. So far this year I have sent requests to the following players:
  • C.C. Sabathia
  • Felix Hernandez
  • Josh Hamilton
  • Zack Greinke
  • James Loney
  • Curtis Granderson
  • Aaron Harang

Some of those players won't sign but I like the risk/reward. I would still like to send out more requests by the end of the spring. Does anyone have any suggestions?

  1. You could try Mariano Rivera, I guess. He usually seems to sign a few cards each spring.
