TTM Return: Jed Lowrie

  • Jed Lowrie 1/1- Despite spending the first four seasons of his career with the Red Sox, I haven't been able to get Lowrie's autograph since I moved to Massachusetts.  I got his 2009 Topps card back from Houston in two weeks.  Sent 8/17 (14 days)

2 TTM Returns: Mike Napoli & Joe Nathan

A pair of Rangers returns came through over the weekend, as the final stretch of the regular season approaches...

  • Mike Napoli 1/1- Mike signed a Gypsy Queen from the 2012 set.  Sent 8/10 (49 days) 
  • Joe Nathan 1/1- The Rangers closer signed a 2012 Allen & Ginter in blue sharpie.  It's nice to see Joe has reclaimed the closer role after spending some time as a middle reliever after getting traded.  Sent 8/20 (39 days)
