Spring Training Return: Trevor Crowe

  • Trevor Crowe 1/2- The Indians prospect signed his 09 Topps rookie card and kept another card that I believe was a T206. The end of the signature is smeared, but it's nice to get any returns during the winter time. This is one of my longest returns of all time. I've seen a few other players catching up on their mail for the year, so hopefully a few more will trickle in before the year is over. Sent 3/8 (282 days)

Hockey TTM: Matt Carle

When I moved to Boston last fall, I started to get into hockey as something to distract me from the off-season for baseball. It's definitely grown on me very quickly, and I recently started picking up a pack of hockey cards here and there since they can be had for really cheap. I finally sent a few out in the mail to see what I could get, and this was my first return.

  • Matt Carle 1/1- The Flyers defenseman signed a 2010/11 Upper Deck retro insert that looks like it's from the early 90's. Sent 12/3 (14 days)

TTM Return: Nick Hundley

  • Nick Hundley 2/2- It's been quite a long time since I received any cards back, but that's the offseason for you. I was very excited to get two cards back signed from Nick Hundley that were both part of the 09 Topps set. I don't know why he was included in both Series 1 and 2; he never changed teams during that time, and he's not exactly a top star. Either way, I was happy to knock out a few more cards for my set and get my 300th autograph of the year! Sent 7/16 (139 days)
