My collection of TTM autographs

While I'm finally getting on a roll with scanning parts of my personal collection recently, here's a quick look at my autographs I've acquired (mostly) through the mail.  Almost all of these came TTM, but one or two might have been signed at a card show, purchased by or traded to me.  For the purposes of this post, we'll call all of them TTM autographs.  Instead of scanning them individually, as I would with the major parts of my collection, I decided against it this time because I didn't feel like putting in the effort crop/optimize this many cards.  I think you'll still get a good look at what I have anyway.
I'm not going to explain why I went for any of these players since those of you that have tried TTM autos probably also sent requests to an eclectic group of players, probably mostly ones you felt were more likely to respond.  You won't be too surprised to see a lot of Detroit Tigers, though!  Also, if you take one lesson away from this post, I want it to be that you notice that '97 Fleer cards are simply the best ones for TTM autographs.

Deivi Cruz, Damion Easley, Tony Clark, Vida Blue, Matt Williams, Ben McDonald, Paul Molitor, Dennis Eckersley, Curt Schilling

Luis Gonzalez, Jason Giambi, John Smoltz, Kerry Wood, Steve Woodard, Todd Zeile, Justin Thompson, Chris Hoiles, Brian Powell

Mickey Lolich (card show, I think), Jeremy Giambi, Tom Glavine, Michael Barrett, Sandy Alomar Jr., Mark Grace, Kenny Lofton, Melvin Nieves, Brian Hunter

Rusty Greer, Darin Erstad, Ryan Minor, Joe Girardi, Joe Randa, Brad Fullmer, A.J. Sager (card show, I think), Mike Stanley, Adrian Beltre

Bruce Chen, Tony Womack, Carlos Guillen, Brian Moehler, Jason Giambi (again), Rafael Palmeiro, Sean Casey, Tony Gwynn

Mike Lowell, Tim Salmon, Phil Garner (I believe, since he managed the Tigers in 2000 and this doesn't look like Larry Parrish), Rico Brogna, Cliff Floyd
So there you have it, my collection of TTM autographs, which I pretty much collected for a few years in the mid-to-late 90s and early 2000s.  What do some of your TTM collections look like?


  1. I like how a lot of the ttms are on cards of dudes signing stuff. Nice touch!
