Default Signup Thread for 2018 TTM Fantasy League

This current season has been a blast, and I'm getting a lot of PM's asking when the next one is! What I'm doing is copying and pasting last years OP, and outside of changing dates, etc., the potential changes are in bold. You can sign up now, or just simply make suggestions and help confirm/deny rule changes.

Next years league will start on February 2nd, and will end when the World Series is over. Only TTM's sent starting on February 2nd will count.



Any interest in doing something similar to this again? I would be willing to take the lead. We can have some prizes, and most importantly, have fun.

ALL SPORTS INCLUDED

The contest is now open to send! The closing date on this contest is when the 2018 World Series is over.


Participants:
1. tribetown
2. r0yals2012
3. bronxbomber33
4. TripleCrown24
5. OC22
6. Soxrule111
7. Broberts23
8. berman74
9. unclemonkey
10. timber09
11.
12.
13.
14.
15.
16.



This is the scoring from past years:


Current Players (On a 2018 Roster) - 4 Points

Prospects - 3 Points

Non-Sport - 4 points

Retired Players - 3 Points

HOF Players - 10 Points

All Stars/Pro Bowler - 6 Points

Only one of the above count. You can't combine catagories. For example, if you had a current all-star, they would be worth the 6 all-star points, and the current player status wouldn't matter.

Inscription/Personalization - 1 Bonus Point


Multiple items signed - 1 bonus point if you get an extra item signed, regardless of how many.

If you get an 8x10, ball, mini helmet, jersey, etc. signed, you get a bonus point.



Whoever has the most points at the end of the season wins.

YOU MUST POST PICS OF RETURNS.

YOU MAY ONLY SEND TO EACH PLAYER ONE TIME. NO GETTING PAT NESHEK TWICE!

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.)


Winner will get care packages from each member of league at end of fantasy period containing at least $10 worth. Some recommended items are: Stamps, Sharpies, IP/TTM Autographs, PC cards. Really, it depends on who wins. All I ask is you send something you are fairly confident the other person will use, or like. Last year no one sent the winner the prize. So, whoever doesn't send the winner a prize will receive a negative from me.

The only thing I would suggest adding to the rules is adding bonus points if you got in a GU return

Well guys, I'm getting ready for Feb to come around. I just got my supplies in, waiting on a few cards from COMC, going to have a nice stack to send out to begin and start off strong I hope.

Let's get some more members!

We need to discuss any scoring changes. Another recommendation I have heard is putting more emphasis on the return, and less on the items. So if I got a return from Player X, who was a HOFer, and an all-star, I would get 13 points. 7 for HOF, and then 6 more for an all-star.


I'm not putting any changes into place until we decide as a group. But now that we have starting 7, let's start talking any changes, and then keep filling this obviously.

I wouldn't entirely disregard the item. A baseball/8x10/whatever costs more to send out, so it'd be nice to get a small bonus for item, also.

So would you be interested in doing the scoring where you get points for HOF and All-Star, but a baseball, 8x10, etc. still earns bonus points?

Absolutely! I think both deserve bonuses. I agree that HOF/All-Star deserve more bonus points. Just don't think we should remove the bonus for jersey/ball/8x10. I think the HOF/AS/Inscription bonus works as-is. Maybe do a tiered bonus for items? Example:

Jersey/Helmet/Bat/Football/Basketball: 3 points
Baseball/Mini-Helmet/Puck: 2 points
8x10: 1 point
4x6 or less: 0 points

That's just an example...I'm sure I'm missing some items. But it also provides a small benefit for those who are willing to spend a little extra to send out a larger item

I'm with some slight scoring changes, but I don't think anything to drastic. The example you give would almost double some returns, and then what about current player all stars. They would be like 11 no?

Maybe just go
Retired- 3
Active Prospect-3
Active MLB- 4
Anytime All Star- 6
Hall of Famer- 10

But as long as the points don't double up on guys, I don't think any changes will really aggravate me. I'm just ready for like Feb 10th or so to get here.

I like something like this. Just my .02, keep things relatively simple. I like the point value here and if you wanted to do some sort of bonus point system, do something along the lines of:

Multiple items-1 additional point (not per extra item, just 1 point)
Ball, photo, G/U item etc. (anything other then a card-1 additional point
Inscription/personalization-1 additional point

So how about we go with something like this.

Retired- 3
Active Prospect-3
Active MLB- 4
Anytime All Star- 6
Hall of Famer- 10

If you get an extra item (regardless of how many): Bonus 1 point
Any baseball, photo, etc: 1 bonus point each
Inscription/personalization: 1 bonus point

So if I got player X, who was an HOF shortstop to sign 1 photo and 1 card, it would be the following.

HOF: 10 points
Bonus Item: 1 point
Photo: 1 point
HOF Inscription: 1 point

13 Total


Thoughts on that?

The last 2 decisions to make.

Are we going to do random teams again for bonus points? I've received a recommendation saying they should be worth an.additional 7 points on top of everything else. Thoughts on that?

Also, what are we doing prize wise. We haven't had a winner yet from the first league. Should we raise the prize level? Lower it? Keep it the same?

I like the idea of having a team assigned to get bonus points.

I think a "care package" with $10-15 value from each member in the league is good. It can be supplies or an autograph from that persons favorite team or a set they are working on.

I like the Team bonus, but 7 points is way to heavy imo. Id say an easy +1 max +3.

And for the care package I agree. I know I'm not in the other league but Ill still send the winner like 10 TTM doubles I received during the year. Nothing fancy, but hopefully stuff they didn't have, or they could possibly trade.

If I lose this league, Ill probably do the same. Send some Doubles, some unsigned cards of guys who are pretty reliable and maybe something small on top.

***EDIT***
Unless your saying 7 points total, not 6 for All Star + 7 Points your team= 13 points on the one return.

So maybe 3 points is better? I do think if we are doing the teams, there should be some type of bonus. 3 points wouldn't be bad.
