Incredible ‘Through The Mail’ Mail Day Courtesy Of Mr. Wade Boggs!!

As soon as i decided to jump in and go after more baseball cards of Wade Boggs for my collection, the first thing I did was document each and every card I owned that featured him as the primary subject so I could get my ‘Boggs Checklist’ up to date and proceed with my expansion plans.

As I went through the cards I already owned, I saw that a few doubles had crept into the mix.  And they were all pretty good looking cards too.  My mind began to spin, and I started formulating my plan…

First, I went to a few of the sports autograph websites that I frequent to see if Boggs’ signing habits through the mail were still positive.  And as soon as I got that confirmation, I pulled three cards from my small stack of ‘doubles’, jotted a quick letter to Wade, and packed the cards up with a small cash donation and return self-addressed-stamped-envelope.

And off they went.

And just 2 1/2 weeks later, my three cards were returned to me and they are all signed beautifully in Blue Sharpie.

Have a look:

1988 Score – base

1991 Score ‘Dream Team’ w/HOF 05 inscription

2001 Fleer ‘Greats Of The Game’

I told you that they were good looking cards!!!

And even better with that bright Blue Wade Boggs autograph scribbled on each one.

I am so thrilled that Boggs is still signing so generously for his fans.  I may try to grab a few more while I can – time to go back and see what other ‘doubles’ I have that may look just as nice as the above cards.

Which one do you like the best?  My pick is the 1988 Score card – the Blue really pops!!!

  1. If Wade would have carefully signed at the bottom of the third one, ala, the certified version, I would have said that one but I’ll go with your choice.

  2. Wade’s a great signer. I sent a few to him early in the year and they came back fast and look awesome, including that same 2001 GOTG.

    I’ve since found a few more cards of him that I thought would look great with a signature, so I’ll be writing him again soon.
