Another TTM Success From Matt Andriese

This 2015 Bowman blue parallel pushed me to send to Matt Andriese again, this time at Spring Training.  The card came back looking great, and I was happy to add it to my album.
This 2013 Topps Heritage Minors card also turned out nicely.  I didn't have very many of these to start with, so I was happy to be able to add one to the autograph album.

Andriese (b. 1989) has played in the majors since 2015 for the Rays, Diamondbacks, Angels and Red Sox.  He has a record of 28-37 with 462 strike outs and a 4.68 ERA.

I mailed to Andriese via Red Sox Spring Training on February 11 and got the cards back on March 11, for a 28-day TAT.

TTM Success - Blake Taylor

Here is another 2021 Topps that I was able to get signed via Spring Training, this one being of Blake Taylor.  The card looks great, although Taylor's signature isn't much.

Taylor (b. 1995) has played in the majors since 2020 for the Astros.  He has a 4-3 record with 41 strike outs and a 2.89 ERA.

I mailed to Taylor via Astros Spring Training on February 16 and got the card back on March 11, for a 23-day TAT.

TTM Success - Tom Candiotti

Another 1987 Topps came off of my checklist when I sent this one to a private signing for Tom Candiotti.  The card came back looking great, and I was glad to cross Candiotti off of the list.

Candiotti (b. 1957) played in the majors from 1983 to 1984 and 1986 to 1999 for the Brewers, Indians, Blue Jays, Dodgers and A's.  He had a career record of 151-164 with 1,735 strike outs and a 3.73 ERA.  He appeared on the 2005 Hall of Fame ballot, but received only 0.4% of the vote.

I mailed to the signing on January 25 and got the card back on March 10, for a 44-day TAT.  I paid a fee of $12.00.

TTM Success - Shane Opitz

This 2011 Panini Playoff Contenders card that I got signed TTM by Shane Opitz looks a lot better in person.  The card has qualities of an atomic refractor, but the scan didn't really pick that up.  It looks great in person, though.

Opitz (b. 1992) was an 11th round pick by the Blue Jays in the 2009 June Amateur Draft out of Heritage High School in Colorado.  He played in the minors from 2010 to 2018 in the Blue Jays and Brewers systems, reaching AAA.

He had 491 hits, 12 home runs and a .254 batting average.  I mailed to Opitz on January 25 and got the card back on March 10, for a 44-day TAT.

TTM SUccess - Reid Gorecki

Topps had a pretty nice product come out in 2010, National Chicle, which ended up being a one-off set, but it has yielded some nicely signed cards when I have been able to send some TTM.  This one I got back from Reid Gorecki is pretty nice, in my opinion.
I was also able to get a 2010 Topps signed, and this also turned out well.

Gorecki (b. 1980) played in the majors in 2009 for the Braves.  He had 5 hits, no homers and a .200 batting average.

I mailed to Gorecki on January 23 and got the cards back on March 9, for a 45-day TAT.

TTM Success - Jimmy Yacabonis

This 2019 Norfolk Tides card of Jimmy Yacabonis was something I picked up at a Norfolk game a while back since I didn't have any cards of his.  I missed getting his signature while I was there, so I waited, and saw that he signed TTM.  I finally got the card signed, which was nice, but it came well after he left the Orioles organization.
I was also able to get this 2019 Topps signed.  I always enjoy this set, so I was glad to add another to my album.

Yacabonis (b. 1992) played in the majors in 2017 to 2020 for the Orioles and Mariners.  He had a career record of 3-5 with 75 strike outs and a 5.71 ERA.  I just now realized that he was born in Elizabeth, NJ, which is where my dad's entire side of the family came from.

I mailed to Yacabonis on February 25 via Mariners Spring Training and got the cards back on March 9, for a 12-day TAT.

TTM Success - Camden Maron

This 2012 Bowman Chrome blue refractor is a really nice card.  I was so glad when I found that Camden Maron signed TTM, and even happier when this card came back to me signed.  It really looks sharp.

Maron (b. 1991) was a 31st round pick by the Mets in the 2009 June Amateur Draft out of Hicksville High School in Hicksville, NY.  He played in the minors from 2009 to 2017 in the Mets, Reds, Rangers and Marlins systems.  Reaching AA, he had 511 hits, 21 home runs and a .280 batting average.

I mailed to Maron on March 2 and got the card back on March 9, for a 7-day TAT.
