Its all good, once I get past this initial rush of many returns. I will slow down HARD. I have a roll left to use, but haven't had time to get anything together. Hoping to sent out a good chunk on Friday/Monday but its going to slow down hard for me.

also had 2 RTS last night. Ernest Givens with a new addy on the label at least, and Mike Young. So that's a bummer, but expected.

I am in awe right now.

I have been TTMing for years and I don't think that I have ever had more than 5 come back in day.

Nice return, I'm bummed I never opened an Draft so I didn't send to McKay, Beck, or cards to Lewis. I thought about buying sets but never did. Hope they still sign through the season TTM, but this has been a great signing draft class.

Is it possible to trade the teams we have been assigned for ones we follow?

I am happy to keep if need be but would love to swap out the Jags and pick up the Vikes if that is allowed. I just have no interest in adding any Jags cards to my collection at all.

No big deal if not, just wanted to check. A lot of nice returns so far - keep 'em coming!

I'm pretty sure they said ok to trading Teams, not sure if we can treat it like a waiver wire though.

From the OP*

Each Member will also randomly be assigned a specific team, one from each major sport. (MLB,NHL,NBA,NFL). For each team, they will try to aquire as many ttms from that roster as they can, players may trade teams if they so desire. Any TTM from the player's team is worth 2 bonus points, (must be current players on team, prospects don't count on this one.)

Yeah - that is what I figured as well but I wanted to check in and see what everyone else though.

Personally, I am using this contest as an incentive to stay on top of my personal collection and outgoing requests but have no interest in picking up stuff just for stuffs sake. I would propose that we all have one waiver wire claim we can make to switch one team out with something from the field. That would give us all continued incentive to actually bring in stuff that better fits our collections and goals.

Not a huge deal if other folks don't want to go that route.

Note - I won't be sending to the Jags and I don't collect NBA outside of a few random pickups here or there so if anyone would rather have the Jags or the Pacers I am happy to take whatever team you have.

The original rule was just trading, but if everyone is fine with a waiver claim, that's fine. I'm flexible.

I like that idea! Also, what do we think about about inter-sport trading? i.e. can I trade my basketball team for another baseball team? I only really collect baseball, and would prefer to swap my other three teams out for baseball teams if it pleases the committee.

Thanks, I hope it makes people try to send a few more. I'm more afraid someone might go forget this lol.

My Goal was 1000 points, half way there, but I need to send a few more out to feel confident I can get that number. I think Ive received like 30% of my initial batch back.

Does adding a number count as an inscription? If so, Lynn Dickey gets you another point.
