Originally, I had Navarro in my box, but was waiting to send to him once I had a confirmed success from the addresses I had seen. When I mailed to him, I got a RTS, and let those cards sit in my box again.
I finally saw sme folks get returns from a new address, so I tried him again, and finally got the cards!

I did start a new autograph album, my 8th, which is pretty cool. I can probably fill it pretty fast with all of the TTMs I have laying around that need to be posted. This one from Dave Gumpert won't fill too many spots in the pages, but its a start.

When my good friend, Max, came along and asked me if I would be interested in making a deal with him for some baseballs, I listened. I sent him a few signed balls and in return, I landed three big names, one of which is Hall of Famer, Trevor Hoffman.
Hoffman (b. 1967) played in the majors from 1993 to 2010 for the Marlins, Padres and Brewers. He had a career record of 61-75 with an ERA of 2.87 and 1,133 strike outs. His 601 career saves are second all-time (Mariano Rivera is first). He was a 7-time All Star. His best finish in the Cy Young voting was second (1998 and 2006). He was elected to the Hall of Fame in January (his third ballot) when he received 79.9% of the vote.
Hoffman is now my 138th Hall of Famer on a baseball. Thanks for the deal, Max!
Thank you so much for the cards, guys! I now have 223 signed 1987 Topps out of the 792 card set. I'm a lot farther along than I thought I would be, so I feel like I am doing really well with it!
I only paid $6.65 shipped after using my Ebay Bucks coupon. Not bad at all for a card of someone who I couldn't get to sign anymore.
The deceased players will be tough, but after looking at some of the prices of some of them, they won't be too difficult.
Because I was pushing for the ball, I couldn't present my book for him to sign as well, but luckily, CHris made sure he signed my two best cards. I found both of these cards at the Chantilly show, and was so glad they turned out well. I had bought a pack of Steadtler pens for the Bowman Hi Tex, but they didn't get here in time. The blue Sharpie worked just fine, and I was really happy Chris thought to make sure those were the two he signed.
In this series, I missed out on Dane Dunning and Blake Rutherford. I wanted to catch a second game, but due to being sick, I decided I would stay home, get better and try again another time.
In all, I got Omar Vizquel x 2, Gavin Sheets x 5, Micker Adolfo x 4, TiQuan Forbes x 3, Luis Basabe x 4, Dylan Cease x 4, Michael Matuella x 7, Spike Owen x 2, Jonathan Hernandez x 2, Christian Torres x 2, Ledarious Clark x 2, Josh Altmann x 2, CD Pelham x 3, Anderson Tejeda x 3, Leody Taveras x 1 and Ricky Valencia x 2.
