Default Kirb007's TTM thread

I was feeling a little inspired seeing some of the TTM successes other posters were showing on here, so I sent out a few of my own. I'm a big Cubs fan, so my TTMing is a bit Cub heavy, although I did sent to a few prospects.

Today, I received my first returns.

This one wasn't exactly a TTM. Logan has a twitter account (@LoganBawcom) and every so often, he asks trivia questions and if you are the first to answer correctly, he will sign a card for you and sent it your way. And he's a pretty good follow as well.

Had a pretty good return day today. Got 4 in, but one was a failure.

So the failure... Alfonso Soriano returned everything at least and in 21 days, but no auto...

But I did get new Cubs P Chris Volstad in 21 days on a custom Cubs photo I made with a bit of help...

And finally, this might be my favorite one and since it's almost time for March Madness, from the Kings in 23 days... Jimmer Fredette! (And he hand wrote me a quick note on a 3x5 card... AWESOME!)

I use Google images to find the photos I use, but you can use any search engine to find cool pictures. You have to make sure that the photos are not copyrighted or watermarked and also are the proper size pixel wise to make for a clear shot.

For example, I print a lot of 4x6s so I need photos that measure minimum 400x600 pixels. Remember, if you want bigger prints, the minimum numbers need to be larger. The bigger the numbers the better though, because it makes for clearer pictures.

Then I upload the pics to an online print shop. Usually, I shop around a little bit because sometimes companies have sales and you can get them printed cheap. I really like Snapfish and Walmart to get my pics printed. The last batch I had done, Snapfish was having a sale and I got 100 4x6 photos printed for $1 plus shipping. Still was less than $7 total! Shop around on this and you can save some cash.

Awesome returns! That Mauer note is hilarious, because he's a giant douchebag in person.
