My Very First TTM Request Has Finally Come Home

I sent my very first TTM request during spring training 2009 to Mike Lowell.  Since I sent this card out, I've moved from Maryland to Massachussetts, gotten myself a "real" job, visited Ireland and Costa Rica, and gotten married.  I've also gotten over one thousand cards signed, including 294 for my 2009 Topps set.  How time flies.

I knew when my father-in-law called me to tell me I received an envelope from the Red Sox that it must have been a TTM send-out from at least three years ago.

Unfortunately, the long wait for this return brought a less than exciting result.  Mike sent a preprinted form letter apologizing for the delayed response, as well as a pre-printed photo card that simple says "Mike".  He returned the card I sent unsigned.  It was sent in an envelope from the Red Sox, and I received a similar return from Jonathan Papelbon a few years ago that was sent out around the same time as this one.
