Stone (b. 1960) played in the majors from 1983 to 1990 for the Phillies, Orioles, Rangers and Red Sox. He had 261 hits, 11 home runs and a .277 batting average. He finished 7th in the 1984 NL Rookie of the Year voting.
I mailed to the private signing on June 4 and got the cards back on July 13, for a 39-day TAT. I paid a fee of $5/card.

Edwards signed a 2020 Pro Debut (top), 2020 Bowman base and 2020 Bowman Chrome (above, left and right). His Sharpie needs some help, but overall, I'm happy I got the cards back signed.
Edwards (b. 1999) was a first round pick (38th overall) by the Padres in the 2018 June Amateur Draft out of a Florida high school.
So far, he has reached High A ball in the Padres system. He has 217 hits, 1 home run and a .328 batting average.
I mailed to Edwards on June 29 and got the cards back signed on July 10, for an 11-day TAT.

The cards that I got signed were a 1989 Score (what an underrated set) and a 1987 Topps Glossy Rookies. Both cards look good, and I'm glad they came back.
Dunne (b. 1962) played in the majors from 1987 to 1990 and 1992 for the Pirates, Mariners, Padres and White Sox. He had a career record of 25-30 with 205 strike outs and a 4.08 ERA. He finished second in the 1987 NL Rookie of the Year voting (to Benito Santiago).
I mailed to Dunne on June 8 and got the cards back on July 10, for a 32-day TAT.
Inglett also signed a 2007 Topps for me, and it turned out nicely, as well. I don't remember which cards I sent, but I'm happy to have gotten these in return. I'm sure someone else got mine, and I hope they like them.
Inglett (b. 1978) played in the majors from 2006 to 2011 for the Indians, Blue Jays, Brewers and Astros. He had 229 hits, 6 home runs and a .283 batting average.

I love those silver pack chromes from Topps; the above right one being a 1983 design. I have been getting them lately with my Topps boxes, and they are some really cool cards to get signed.
Kiner-Falefa (b. 1995) has played in the majors since 2018 for the Rangers. He has 200 hits, 8 home runs and a .262 batting average.
I mailed to him on February 29 at Rangers Spring Training and got the cards back on July 7, for a 129-day TAT.

Of course, I wasn't satisfied with just one card, so I sent the 2009 Topps Update base and a 2007 Bowman Chrome. Both of these cards look nice, too.
Walters (b. 1985) played in the majors from 2009 to 2013 for the Cardinals and Twins. He had a career record of 6-10 with 104 strike outs and a 6.28 ERA.
I mailed to Walters on April 22 and got the cards back on July 6, for a 75-day TAT.

I had sent to Chuck Estrada a while back, but he was on a card that I wanted to get done (which will be posted at a later date) and this 1991 Crown Orioles. Again, I am not pursuing the set, but they are nice to have when I need to send a card off and would like to dip in a little more for another card.
The other card was a 1973 Rangers coaching staff card that I had gotten signed by Jackie Moore, then Estrada and finally Herzog. I'll show it soon.
I mailed to Estrada on June 15 and got the cards back on July 6, for a 21-day TAT.

I added another 2020 Bowman to my autograph album when I got this TTM success back from former Padres, now Indians, prospect, Joey Cantillo. He has a really nice signature, and it shows up well on the card.
Cantillo (b. 1999) was a 16th round pick by the Padres in the 2017 June Amateur Draft out of Kailua High School in Hawaii. In 3 seasons in Minor League ball, he has a record of 13-7 with 221 strike outs and a 2.51 ERA. He has reached as high as High A ball.
Cantillo was involved in the huge trade earlier this summer which sent Mike Clevenger and Greg Allen to the Padres in exchange for Cantillo, Cal Quantrill, Austin Hedges, Josh Naylor, Gabriel Arias and Owen Miller.
I mailed to Cantillo on June 15 and got the card back on July 6, for a 21-day TAT.

I mailed to Steer on June 15 and got the cards back on July 2, for a 17-day TAT.
I have been more conscious of getting Marlins signed, since my buddy Dugan is a huge fan of theirs. For some reason their cards already stand out to me, and now that he is working on Marlins autos, I've kept my eye out for some, as well.
Anderson (b. 1990) has played in the majors since 2019 for the Marlins and Rays. He has a career record of 6-5 with 135 strike outs and a 2.81 ERA.
I mailed to Anderson on June 10 and got the cards back on July 2, for a 22-day TAT.

I got 2001, 2003 and 2004 Topps cards signed by Berg, and they look really nice.
Berg (b. 1970) played in the majors from 1998 to 2004 for the Marlins and Blue Jays. He had 430 hits, 21 home runs and a .269 batting average.
I mailed to Berg on June 8 and got the cards back on June 29, for a 21-day TAT.

Lewis (b. 2000) was a second round pick by the Dodgers in the 2019 June Amateur Draft out of Lake Travis High School in Texas. He has yet to make his professional debut.
I mailed to Lewis on June 10 and got the cards back on June 29, for a 19-day TAT.
I added some more early 80s cards to my autograph album when I got this return from Roger Erickson. The above 1981 Topps looks really sharp, I think. I love the design, and the colors on the card really pop.
Friday, September 18, 2020
Shealy also signed a 2003 Topps Traded, 2007 Allen and Ginter and a 2007 Topps Chrome refractor.
Shealy (b. 1979) played in the majors from 2005 to 2008 and 2010 for the Rockies, Royals and Red Sox. He had 146 hits, 19 home runs and a .268 batting average.

Romo (b. 2001) was a first round pick (#35 overall) by the Rockies in the 2020 June Amateur Draft out of The Woodlands High School in Texas. He may go through Asheville next season, depending on how MiLB is restructured.
I mailed to Romo on June 8 and got the cards back on June 25, for a 17-day TAT.
