TTM Success: Hall of Famer, Mr. Bobby Doerr!!!

TTM Success:  Hall of Famer, Mr. Bobby Doerr!!!

He did it again!  In just over a week, Bobby Doerr returned another card to me, with a beautiful signature applied!

And he used the Red Sharpie that I sent to.  Take a look:

The Red looks pretty sweet, huh?  I agree.  When I picked up this card, I knew right away that I wanted to test the color of Red – and I am thrilled with the results.  And as a token of my appreciation, I told Mr. Doerr to keep the marker and use it as he wished.

If you send to Mr. Doerr in hopes of getting an autograph, ask him to sign in Red.  Tell him ’30-YOC’ sent you!!

Enjoy!!

Bobby Doerr 2002 Flair Greats – Another TTM Opportunity!!

I’d been looking for a unique card to send to Mr. Doerr to get signed.  Ever since I got back into the TTM game, I have received 4 or 5 beautifully signed pieces from him, but it seems like every time I post a successful return on ’30-YOC’ my Inbox is inundated with questions as to how Doerr’s autograph was so easily obtained.  Usually I offer up the signed card – and now I am left with just one in my collection.

I found this one on Ebay the other night.  And for just $0.99 it was mine!!

I am thinking that I may try sending a Sharpie along with the card this time.  But not just any Sharpie.  How do you think Red would look on this card?  I don’t know, but the color Red is calling is to me when I look at this one.

You know what comes next…

Stay tuned.  Thanks.

Happy Birthday Bobby Doerr!!

TTM Success – Hall Of Famer, Mr. Bobby Doerr!!!

TTM Success – Hall Of Famer, Mr. Bobby Doerr!!!

So, by now you may have figured it out…   I took the baseball that Yogi Berra rejected and sent it to another Hall of Fame player that signs for everybody – with no strings attached.

Bobby Doerr signed my ball and returned it to me in just eight days!!

This was the third time that Mr. Doerr signed for me in the last two years so I sent him a donation as a ‘Thank You’ for all of his kindness towards collectors.  And what did he do?  How did he respond?

Well, check out the pics…

Yessir.  Not only did Bobby Doerr sign my baseball beautifully while also including his ‘HOF 86’ inscription, but he also gave me one of his Cooperstown Hall of Fame postcards.

A true friend of the collector – Thank You Mr. Doerr!!!

Happy Birthday Bobby Doerr!!

Bobby Doerr Autograph TTM Success!!!

 True to form and just as expected, Bobby Doerr delivered two great looking autographs to me in just 7 days.  Doerr is known around the autograph hunting community as being one of the easiest and nicest signers in the hobby. 

Doerr played 14 seasons for the Boston Red Sox from 1937-1951.  A 9-time All-star, Doerr’s career batting average is .288.  With 223 home runs, 1,094 runs scored, and 1,247 RBI, Doerr’s offensive game was solid for a 2nd baseman.  Doerr finished in the Top 19 for the league MVP award 8 times over the course of his career and his jersey, #1, was retired by the Red Sox in 1988.  Doer was voted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1986.

2 classic autogrpahs from a very classy guy.  ‘Thank You’, Mr. Doerr!!!

I am very eager to see how this goes.  This morning I dropped off 12 envelopes for 11 baseball players and 1 Olympic hero.  I’m sending these autograph requests to Hall of Famers, All-stars, Sentimental favorites, and heroes of my childhood.

The guys – Mike Lowell, Mike Mussina, Pete Rose, Duke Snider, Stan Musial, Bruce Jenner, Bobby Doerr, Sparky Anderson, Mike Cameron, Al Kaline, Josh Hamilton, and Ron Santo.

I’ll be sure to keep you updated on how this pursuit goes…  Any guesses on who will be the first one back to my house with a successful signature???
