3 TTM/Interview Requests Have Been Dropped In The Mail!!!

I told you guys that I was going to jump back into the TTM side of the hobby soon.  I should have a series of posts in the coming weeks covering my attempts to bring home a few more autographs for my collection.

And in addition to the autograph collecting, I am also going to see if I can get a few more players to do my ’20 Questions’ interviews.

So here goes, 3 normally very good signers are getting packages from me.  In the package are handfuls of cards for them, a few that I would like to have returned back to me signed, and the interviews.

We’ll see how this transpires…

Package #1 goes to:  Bobby Bonilla

101_7983 

#2 has been sent to:  Shawon Dunston

101_7984

And #3 is being mailed to:  Mark Grace

101_7985

 You better believe that I’ll be sharing the results of these with you as soon as they return, good or bad!!!   Wish me luck!!

20 Questions With Cody Ross Of The Florida Marlins

You will recall that a few weeks ago I went to an autograph signing for Cody Ross of the Florida Marlins.  Cody has become a very popular player on the team, and I am sure that it is due to his on the field heroics and his obvious enjoyment of playing the game of baseball. 

In less than 2 weeks, Cody returned my interview request back to me and the result is very entertaining.

Enjoy!!!
