TTM Success - Bud Selig

I sent a TTM request off to the Commissioner of Baseball Bud Selig on August 16 and got the signed ball back today (August 23). That's a 7-day TAT. AWESOMELY FAST!!!

There's one catch, though. This wasn't the ball I sent to Mr. Selig to be signed. He kindly replaced my cheap x-out Rawlings Official League Ball with this beautiful Official MLB ball. Oh man, that was so cool.

I would use the Official MLB baseballs if they weren't so darn expensive. I wanted to buy a bucket of them, but the cheapest I saw was a bucket for $100. I've thought about getting some vintage Official MLB baseballs, but they usually go for $30 or higher. So, needless to say, I was really happy when I got this ball in today.

I knew right away when I opened my mailer that the ball was from Selig because I had read that he replaces baseballs sent to him with the Official ones, which, to me, is really cool!

Selig signs for free and is very fast at returning, so I highly recommend that you try him. I also am pretty certain that Selig will be a member of the Hall of Fame one day, so this is pretty much a 'guaranteed' Hall of Famer. Let's hope so at least.

I intend to get autos of some of the other past commissioners. Happy Chandler is relatively affordable, his autos on baseballs go between $100-$125.
