Here's my second TTM autograph success from spring training. The good news is that I received my 2013 Topps card back from Evan Gattis signed in blue Sharpie in just 24 days. The bad news is that the blue Sharpie was badly smudged and went everywhere it wasn't supposed to. I used a little baby powder on the card to decrease the glossy finish on the card prior to mailing. The card has a partial fingerprint on it, so I don't think I had a chance. Just the same, I'm happy to have the card back signed.
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.
