Asadoorian (b. 1980) was a first round pick (1999, 17th) by the Red Sox out of a Massachusetts high school. He played in the minors for 9 seasons in the Red Sox, Rangers and Reds systems. He also played 4 years of independent ball before hanging up his spikes at the end of the 2011 season.
I mailed to Asadoorian on October 7 and got the card back on October 18, for an 11-day TAT.

Wagner (b. 1954) played in the majors from 1976 to 1984 for the Tigers, Rangers and A's. He had 205 hits, 3 home runs and a .243 batting average.
I mailed to Wagner on September 24 and got the cards back on October 18, for a 24-day TAT.

I knew something like this was coming. All Rags did this season was impress me on how he managed the Wood Ducks and also continued his other job as Rangers Minor League Field Coordinator.
The Minor League Field Coordinator is the person who determines where each minor league player is assigned, who moves up (or down), etc. He also made sure my beard was up to par this season.
At the final regular season home game, Rags hugged Chris and I and thanked us for coming out this season. I told him that it was my first season as a season ticket holder, and he was probably the biggest reason why I would be renewing my package.
I had also ran into him outside the stadium a few games before where, during the game, he had been ejected. He went so far as seemingly apologizing to Chris and I for being ejected. Rags is just a great guy. I really hope that we can run into him in the future, as he may be one of my most favorite people I have come across in all of the MiLB games that I have gone to. I can easily say that Chris and I love Rags.
I'll also miss saying this before every game, "Go get em, Rags!"
Sowers (b. 1983) played in the majors from 2006 to 2009 for the Indians. He was a 1st round pick (6th overall) in the 2004 June Amateur Draft. He had a career record of 18-30 with 174 strike outs and a 5.18 ERA.
I mailed to Sowers on September 30 and got the cards back on October 16, for a 16-day TAT.

He was a two-time All Star (1986 and 1987) and his best Cy Young Award finish was 7th (1986, NL). He won the World Series with the Mets in 1986. He appeared on the 2003 Hall of Fame ballot, but only received 0.4% of the vote.
I mailed to the signing on September 19 and got the card back on October 15, for a 26-day TAT. I paid a $29.00 fee (which is why I didn't send the Sports Illustrated).
I had sent TTM to Dave Magadan in the season, since he is a hitting coach somewhere. I never did get those cards back, so I went ahead and sent to the signing and am happy with the card.
Magadan (b. 1962) played in the majors from 1986 to 2001 for the Mets, Marlins, Mariners, Astros, Cubs, A's and Padres. He had 1,197 hits, 42 home runs and a .288 batting average. He finished 22nd in the 1990 NL MVP voting. He was a part of the World Series Champion New York Mets, but did not appear in the post season that year.
I mailed to the private signing on September 19 and got the card back on October 15, for a 26-day TAT. I paid a fee of $29.00.

Rawley (b. 1955) played in the majors from 1978 to 1989 for the Mariners, Yankees, Phillies and Twins. He had a career record of 111-118 with 991 strike outs and a 4.02 ERA. He was an All Star in 1987.

Thursday, November 7, 2019
Harper (b. 1940) played in the NHL from 1962 to 1981 for the Canadiens, Kings, Red Wings, Blues and Rockies (no, not the baseball team; there was a hockey team called the Colorado Rockies). He scored 35 goals, with 221 assists, for a total of 256 points. He was a 5-time Stanley Cup winner (64-65, 65-66, 67-68, 68-69, 70-71) with the Canadiens.

I love the 1965 set. It is a really great set that I likely will take up building sooner than later.
Cline (b. 1939) played in the majors from 1960 to 1971 for the Indians, Braves (Milwaukee and Atlanta), Cubs, Giants, Expos and Reds. He had 437 hits, 6 home runs and a .238 batting average.

Thursday, October 31, 2019
I waited a bit, though, because I knew he was in 2007 Allen & Ginter, as well, so once I got around to looking through my boxes, I found his 07 Ginter and sent the two cards out.
In Seoul in 1988, Louganis hit his head on a board while performing a dive in a preliminary round and suffered a concussion. He would come back from that injury and score the Gold, anyway.
Louganis attended the University of Miami, but transferred to UC-Irvine and graduated in 1983 with a major in theatre and a minor in dance. He probably transferred out of Miami because their football team isn't all that great.
I mailed to Louganis on October 2 and got the cards back on October 11, for a 9-day TAT.
Wednesday, October 30, 2019
Mackowiak (b. 1976) played in the majors from 2001 to 2008 for the Pirates, White Sox, Padres and Nationals. He had 603 hits, 64 home runs and a .259 batting average.

Walker (b. 1985) has played in the majors since 2009 for the Pirates, Mets, Brewers, Yankees and Marlins. He has 1,215 hits, 149 home runs and a .267 batting average. He was a Silver Slugger Award winner in 2014.
I mailed to Walker via Marlins Spring Training on February 20 and got the cards back on October 11, for a 233-day TAT.
Monday, October 28, 2019
Steve Kealey is the latest former player who has signed TTM for me. He signed both cards in blue ink pen.
I mailed to Kealey on September 26 and got the cards back on October 10, for a 14-day TAT.

Thanks for getting these cards done for me, Cal! I'll be sending you some more next season.
Cust (b. 1979) played in the majors from 2001 to 2004 and 2006 to 2011 for the Diamondbacks, Rockies, Orioles, A's and Mariners. He had 510 hits, 105 home runs and a .242 batting average.

Saturday, October 26, 2019
Gomez (b. 1951) played in the majors from 1974 to 1981 for the Twins, Blue Jays and Braves. He had 263 hits, no home runs and a .210 batting average.
I mailed to Gomez on October 1 and got the cards back on October 8, for a 7-day TAT.
I really wanted to cross Ron Davis off of my list, and I had the opportunity a couple years ago at the National, but I had brought cards for the wrong Ron Davis. I ended up picking an extra up from someone in line, but it wasn't an 87. Jackson came through, though, and now he is off of the list.
These cards put me at 529/792, or 67% of the set completed. That's not too bad at all, I think, and I have a bunch more on the way!

The above 2008 Topps Heritage rookie card looks pretty great. I love the 1959 Topps design, and this one looks good. The only thing that could make it better would have been a higher quality Sharpie.
Volstad (b. 1986) played in the majors from 2008 to 2013, 2015 and 2017 to 2018 for the Marlins, Cubs, Rockies, Pirates and White Sox. He had a career record of 37-58 with 481 strike outs and a 5.00 ERA.
I mailed to Volstad on September 30 and got the cards back on October 8, for an 8-day TAT.
With these five cards being added to my album, I have now filled 11 albums with autographed baseball cards. Not too bad, since I started the albums in 2016. Additionally, that does not include my signed 1987 Topps album.

The above 2006 Upper Deck looks really cool. I don't have much at all from this set, and I am glad that I sent this one in.
Of course, I had to get a Topps base card in there, and 2006 Topps is one set that I have very little of, as far as bulk cards are concerned. I had a box of them that turned over and fell out of my truck in my move, and the cards ended up in the gutter just after a rainstorm. Needless to say, most of the cards were ruined.
Niekro (b. 1979) is the son of the late Joe Niekro and the nephew of Hall of Famer, Phil Niekro. He played in the majors from 2003 and 2005 to 2007 for the Giants. He had 123 hits, 17 home runs and a .246 batting average.
I mailed to Niekro on September 30 and got the cards back on October 8, for an 8-day TAT.

Recently, I checked on some of the envelopes, and saw that Kieschnick was signing at a new address, this time for a fee of $10.00/card. Since the third card wasn't anything special, I sent the other two, along with a $20, and hopes the cards would come back signed this time.
The cards did come back, and I believe they might be some of the coolest cards that I have ever gotten returned. The above Star Date 2000 from EX 2000 looks amazing. I was so happy that this one came back signed, and turned out well. I had prepped it beforehand, and I'm happy I did. This card just looks awesome.
Kieschnick (b. 1972) played in the majors from 1996 to 1997, 2000 to 2001 and from 2003 to 2004 for the Cubs, Reds, Rockies and Brewers. He had 76 hits, 16 home runs and a .248 batting average.
I mailed to Kieschnick on September 30 and got the cards back on October 8, for an 8-day TAT. I paid a fee of $10.00/card.
Tuesday, October 22, 2019
Luecken (b. 1960) played in the majors from 1989 to 1990 for the Royals, Braves and Blue Jays. He had a career record of 3-5 with 51 strike outs and a 5.10 ERA.
I mailed to Luecken on September 23 and got the cards back on October 8, for a 15-day TAT.

He sent another batch back today. The above 2000 Rich Aurilia turned out really well. I don't have very many cards from 2000 signed, so this one will look good in my album.
Joe Price and Mike Moore are fairly tough, as well, but Jackson got them taken care of. He also sent me a signed Tom Hume, but I had already gotten him; he also sent me a signed 1987 Topps Giants Leaders card signed by Jim Gott, but he apparently isn't on the card. It is Jim Barr, and I have a card out to him to be signed right now.
Thanks so much for the autos, Jackson!
