After a long period of no returns, I finally received a TTM autograph in my mailbox this week. It comes from Clayton Kershaw of the Dodgers. It was postmarked from Dallas, TX. I originally sent it to Dodgers Spring Training in Arizona last March. The return took 339 days, but was well worth it. The card is a 2011 Topps base card and is signed beautifully in blue Sharpie. I'm thrilled to get the card back. I doubt many 3 time Cy Young Award winners would take the time to sign. Very cool.
I have been a New York Yankees fan for my entire life. I have collected baseball cards for over 20 years. I did take a brief hiatus from 1996 to 2004. Nine years is brief, right? I prefer cards made after 2004. I also prefer cards that measure 2.5 in. by 3.5 in. I also have a thing against baseball cards that don't feature a baseball player. I collect all teams and players, even the Red Sox.
