TTM Returns: Matt Thornton & Mark Loretta

  • Matt Thornton 3/3- The Red Sox reliever signed cards from the 10 Upper Deck, 11 Topps, and 13 Topps Heritage sets.  Sent 7/15 (63 days)
  • Mark Loretta 2/2- Mark certainly took his time with this return.  He signed cards from the 09 Topps and 09 Upper Deck sets that I sent out during last year's spring training when he was with the Padres.  Sent 2/24/12 (591 days)

End of (Regular) Season Update

I've been pretty busy over the last month or so, with little luck when it comes to graphing.  At the last three games I went to during the regular season, I only got one auto at each game:

Yankees @ Red Sox, 9/15 (Mariano's last game at Fenway)
  • Hiroki Kuroda- 08 Allen & Ginter RC
Orioles @ Red Sox, 9/17
  • Jonathan Schoop- 11 Bowman Chrome
Orioles @ Red Sox, 9/18
  • Larry Lucchino- Red Sox 100th anniversary schedule
I was away last weekend when the Rays were in town.  I had tickets for a Game 5, but unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it), that game never happened.  I won't be around for any of the ALCS either, so hopefully I'll have a shot at some postseason graphing if the Sox make it all the way to the World Series.
