    2 in no ST returns

    I have been really disappointed in my ST returns this year. I haven't written to any stars and have only 2 returns and one is a manager. I know the ST season isn't over yet, but was wondering if anyone else was disappointed this season? Please let me know.

    I did have 2 returns in the PO Box today. First was Bob Miller. Bob pitched from 49 - 58 and was part of the "Whiz Kids" in 1950. he also hit 2 homeruns in his career. He wrote a nice letter back and answered my questions. Quick turnaround 5 days. Next I got back Joe Nolan in 6 days on a 1979 Topps. He didn't answer any of my questions. Happy collecting.

    Today brought back Bobby Morgan, a former Brooklyn Dodger and Phillie. He played from 1950 - 58. I had written to him last year but got my envelope returned with noting in it. Today I got my envelope plus an index card, so I was happy with that. He didn't respond to any of my questions or return them, but a success is a success. 8 days. Happy collecting.

    I've been disapointed with ST returns so far also. I have sent to several stars (Rivera, Hamilton, Weeks, Molitor) and know for sure that at least two of those will take awhile but still it's kinda frustrating. I have only gotten Chris Parmelee and that took 2.5 weeks.

    i hear you. I too sent to rivera and a number of other players that I've seen successes from...just not mine (edwin jackson, vance worley, and others) I did have a success from Juan Samuel, but I was definitely hoping for more

    Had a nice weekend with fFamily and got to see my mom who lives about 4 hours away from me. Returned for a nice successes. First I got back Mike Tyson, the baseball player in 55 days. He signed my 1979 Topps but didn't return my letter containing my questions. Nice success though. I also got back James "Red" Moore, former Negro Leaguer in 18 days. He signed both index cards and answered my questions about his career. Very glad to get back. Added name to TTM database. Last I got back Dame Judi Dench form James Bond fame. I had emailed her at least a month ago and was glad to get a 4x6 inscribed to me. Added to database as well. Happy collecting.

I got back the Red Sox!!! earlier and it had a photo of Jacoby and 3 stickers, schedules, Fenway Dirt, braclet, and some other things can't remember right now. Good return. Happy collecting.

    Been on a roll of late

    Today brought back Stan Palys. He signed both index cards and talked about his first at bat against Brooklyn and Clem Labine in 1953. Said he would never forget it and the announcer got his name wrong. Took four pitches and got a walk. 15 days. Happy collecting.
