Weird Return To Sender


               Yesterday I received a return...from the post office in Somerset, MA. That is where Greg Gagne lives and I was sending him a TTM request. But the post office there sent it back to me with a stamp on it saying it had an irregular shape. What's weird about this is that I have mailed my requests the same way for years and the only return to senders I've gotten were for wrong addresses. I guess Somerset is more strict...

               So today I mailed it again with the return envelope enclosed in my letter and card. Then I folded it very long and flat so that the letter took up the entire large envelope. Hopefully Somerset is okay with it now!

Big Mail Day


               Today I sent out 6 cards through the mail, a rather unusual amount for me. But with it being spring break, I was able to have time to write letters to Gordon Beckham(he is one of my favorite players), Joe Kelly, Jim Gentile, Sam Doolittle ,and Matt Shoemaker. I just had to send two cards to Beckham because I like him so much! I sent him a 2014 Topps heritage and a normal 2014 Topps card. 

               I sent these cards to the team spring training facility, but I wonder if I should have sent them to the actual stadium, because there is only a week or so left in spring. I am sending out more cards soon, so if anyone has any thoughts as to where I should send the cards, that would be helpful. Thanks.

Dale Sveum Return


               I received one return today. 
Dale Sveum signed his 1988 Score card for me from back when he was with the brewers.

I hope to see a Curtis Granderson return in the mail soon. I sent a request about 2 weeks ago.
