If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again!!!
I sent a 1985 Donruss card to Pete Rose more than 6 months ago and have yet to receive it back. And between the many blogs I surf and the autograph websites I frequent, I continued to see successful returns from ‘Charlie Hustle’. So this time I decided to send a ball and a check for Mr. Rose as I have been dying to add his great autograph to my collection.
And now I am thrilled to announce that ‘Mystery Package #2’ has returned home safely and it is AWESOME!!!!
With the help of a check that I wrote, Pete Rose signed this baseball for me and even added #4256 for his career hits total as an inscription. I know that adding a check to my letter increased my odds of getting this ball back with Rose’s signature, but I hope that the emotional letter I sent also pulled its weight too. In my head it certainly helped.
In just over a month I am thrilled to have this ball back home and will proudly display it with the rest of my collection. This one certainly ranks near the top for me!!!
On to the spoils…
