Following up on my last couple that featured some autographed memorabilia I've collected I thought it was high time for me to do an album for my in-person and TTM autographs, so that's exactly what I did.
Like a number of you I got into the TTM thing as a kid and I had a pretty reasonable amount of success in the 90s acquiring a nice range of signatures of players, especially Tigers. I've also picked up a handful of in-person signatures myself of through others. And then there's the stuff of unknown origin.
Here's a quick look at the album in its state at the time of this post:
- Sager and Lolich
- Others (trade, purchase, etc.):
- TTM (myself):
- Nieves, Hunter, Casey, Guillen, Moehler, Cruz, Easley, Clark, Erstad, Beltre, Alomar Jr., Glavine, Blue, Thompson, Powell, Grace, Williams, Molitor, Eckersley, Smoltz, Garner, Lowell, Salmon, Brogna, Gwynn
- Can't remember:
- Whitaker, Anderson, Freehan, Leach, Abbott, Petry, Northrup, Leach, Abbott
I've also sent a decent number of my TTM successes out in trade packages since I don't value them as much as I used to. And on a related note, I'm happy to make some of these available in trade. Many are keepers for me, of course, such as any of my PC guys and some of the Tigers, but I'm willing to let a number of them go, so if you're interested, please send me a comment or email!
And please feel free to keep up with this collection (though I likely won't be adding much to it at this point) via this link, or hit the link in the sidebar to your right.
So what do y'all think? Any favorites here? What's the best player you've gotten, be it IP or TTM?
