Well dang, Urrutia included mine unsigned..... Wonder why.

I got a Urrutia signed ball TTM from him at the Tides yesterday. I sent cards as well but have not gotten a return yet. I think he is kinda tough TTM from what I have read.

I sent Urrutia a letter in English and in Spanish. I know he's not really 100% comfortable with his English. I've seen him at events a few times and he always seems like unsure when he's speaking. Dunno if that has anything to do with it. I sent 4 cards and he signed 2 and sent the other 2 back unsigned. They were doubles though, so I'm not sure if I told him he could keep them or not. I used this for the Spanish letter

Today's returns: 1/1 from Del Crandall (for Pac Legends collection), 3/3 from Jose Berrios, 2/2 from Forrest Wall, 1/1 from Jackie Bradley Jr, and 1/1 from Will Clark. I got him earlier in the year, but the card got smudged some and it was a Rangers card lol. I wanted a Giants one too.

Great Nola cards. Is he at Double-A now? That's where you sent that to?

Thanks! I think he has a cool signature. Yeah, I sent it to AA Reading Fightin' Phils. Sent April 8th, so pretty quick turn around.

Today's return 1/1 from Jim Bouton (Pacific Legends). Not bad for junk mail Tuesday.

Great Bouton. I got that card signed back in 2010. It's a beautiful set.

It really is! I realized I had a pretty decent amount of the cards in the set already, and all the rest are available on Sportlots for cheap. I'm trying to get all the guys that sign through the mail first. Then I'll start working on the other guys. Luckily since the set came out in 1988 and its a popular set to collect signed versions, there are autos available for a lot of the players who are unfortunately deceased now. It's a long long term project, but I think it would be really cool to have all/most of the cards signed (at least the ones possible).

When did you start? I'm just curious. I began in October/November of 2006 and still working on it. I had other cards from that set returned signed but I didn't go all in on both the 1988 and 1989 sets until that period. Nice Showalter cards, too.

I only started trying to get them signed in January. I think I'm up to 11 or 12. It's a long long term project lol. I know I'll have to end up buying a bunch I'm sure.

I'm curious how committed you are. Some may be more pricey than others and may need shows to complete. They are a great set to complete. It's the only set I've ever been completely serious about, though I unofficially pursue other sets to get signed, too.

I dunno, it'll take me a long time. I'm guessing it'll probably take me a decade or so to get close unless I win the lottery. Just something I'll put money into every now and then in the future, and just do for fun for now. If I can try to get one/two a month that might be a reasonable pace. I suppose it depends on the cards though. It'd be really cool to see a huge collection of them. Do you have pictures online of yours? I'd love to check them out!

It was a huge return day today

3/3 from Charlie Blackmon, 2/2 from Alex Meyer, 2/2 from Justin Nicolino, 3/3 from Chris Iannetta, 4/4 from Austin Hedges (unfortunately the Bowman Platinums got stuck together), 3/3 from Aaron Blair, and 1/1 from Josmil Pinto

Great mail day! Was the Blackmon sent to spring training or just an early return from the stadium?

It was sent to the Rockies regular season address. I think it's something like 2001 Blake St, Denver, CO. I have it down as going out 3/30 so one month exactly!


Thanks everyone!!
