Johan Franzen

Mailed out in 5/30/12 and received back on 6/5/12. Signed 3/3.

So glad to track down Johan TTM. I also like the different personalizations he used. I guess you can say I'm trying to collect the 2009-10 Victory set but I doubt it will happen with Crosby, Malkin, Ovechkin, etc. but maybe I can get every player but those 3? I can dream. Cards were mailed to his home.

Dan Boyle

Mailed out on 4/21/12 and received back on 6/512. Signed 1/1.

Nice return from a solid NHL'er. Glad to add another autographed 09-10 Victory Card to my collection as well. Card was mailed to the San Jose Sharks.

Ryan Smyth

Card was pulled from a box of 2011-12 Panini Certified.

Thank you to fellow autograph collector, Chris who broke a box of Panini Certified for me and a few other collectors. I only bought one team which was the LA Kings and for $5 I got a hit. Ryan isn't a King anymore as he was dealt to Edmonton during the offseason and I'm sure they aren't missing him too much right now. Ryan Smyth is still a good NHL'er and is on a team with a bunch of promising young players. I'm not too attached to this, I would be willing to trade.

Tyler Ennis

Card was acquired through a trade in May 2012.

Thank you to fellow blogger JonWayne for trading me this 2011-12 Donruss Tyler Ennis auto. Check it the rest of JonWayne's trade list as it has a lot of nice stuff. Thanks again!

Some Autos For Trade

Andy Moog 1990-91 Upper Deck

Joe Pavelski 2010-11 Score Stanley Cup Highlights

Ryan Smyth 2011-12 Panini Certified Private Signings- Sorry for no picture just won it in a group break.

Alexander Semin 2009-10 Victory

Jonathan Toews 2011-12 Score- You would have to offer me a pretty sweet deal for this.

I am interested in 09-10 Victory, New York Rangers, and Chicago Blackhawks.

Brent Johnson

Mailed out on 2/13/11 and received back on 5/23/12. Signed 1/1.

Penguins backup goalie, Brent Johnson took over a year to sign my card. I wasn't losing sleep over not seeing him return my card for awhile but I'm still glad to see him sign it. By far my favorite Brent Johnson moment was when he destroyed Rick DiPietro in a fight last season. Card was mailed to the Penguins.

Nick Spaling

Mailed out on 4/26/12 and received back on 5/22/12. Signed 1/1.

Nick Spaling won the 2008 OHL playoff title with the Kitchener Rangers but lost the WHL Memorial Cup. The following season he got called up to the NHL and since then he has stayed with the Predators. Has a lot of potential, we will see what happens. Card was mailed to the Nashville Predators.

Mike Green

Mailed out on 4/25/12 and received back on 5/21/12. Signed 1/1.

This one really surprised me because I have never seen a Mike Green success before mine. Green was trying to take down my NY Rangers in the Eastern Conference Semis but just fell short. Plus it took a little bit over a month which makes it even better. I will be mailing to him again next season. Card was mailed to the Washington Capitals.

Vincent Lecavalier

Mailed out on 12/27/09 and received back on 5/15/12. Signed 1/2.
Almost three years! By far the longest return I have ever gotten but I would rather have it be a long wait over not seeing my stuff getting returned. I'm a big fan of Lecavalier and he was such a big part of that Stanley Cup team. With being the first overall pick in the 1998 draft, he has been everything the Bolts have ever hoped for. Very pleased the card came out nice and that it found its way back to me. There was a note attached saying that he had too much stuff to sign so only one of my cards can be returned but I'm not going to complain. Card was mailed to the Lightning.

Jonathan Toews

Mailed out on 4/1712 and received back on 5/14/12. Signed 3/3.
Another success from Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews! I have seen so many requests take so much longer but I guess I caught him signing because it was the end of the season. Very interesting signature but I'm lucky enough to even get these cards back from a player as great as Toews. Cards were mailed to the Chicago Blackhawks.

P.S- New York Rangers!!!! Bring home the Cup!!!!

Alexander Semin

Mailed out on 4/17/11and received back on 5/7/12. Signed 3/3.
Alexander Semin is a great player that I feel is so over looked by Ovechkin. His Caps are in a battle with my New York Rangers in round two of the playoffs. Nice of him to sign during a tight series. All three cards are perfectly signed in blue. Cards were mailed to the Capitals practice facility.

Dave Bolland

                       Mailed out on 9/4/11 and received back on 4/27/12. Signed 1/1.
           After Chicago got bounced from the playoffs, Dave Bolland cleared out his mail box and returned my 08-09 O- Pee- Chee card signed in nice black sharpie marker. I have seen all different Bolland signatures when mailing TTM. Glad to see this card found it's way back to me. Card was mailed to the Chicago Blackhawks.

Joey Votto

                             Mailed out on 4/10/11 and received back on 4/26/12. Signed 1/1.
                   It has been awhile since I have gotten a baseball success and I am very pleased that Mr. Votto got to my request. He just got a 10 year deal with the Reds after his 2010 MVP season and is still very good with signing his fan mail. Very pleased. Card was mailed to the Reds.

Dirk Nowitzki

                           Mailed out on 4/15/12 and received back on 4/25/12. Signed 1/1.
     The very first basketball success of  my website! I am a basketball fan and also I enjoy playing it but I just do not have the desire to mail out requests to NBA players. I always knew Dirk signed TTM and an autograph from last years finals MVP won't hurt my collection. Card was mailed to the Mavs.

Jonas Hiller

Request #1 was mailed out on 12-23-10 and received back on 4-19-12.
Request # 2 was mailed out on 9-4-11 and received back on 4-19-12.

It looked like Jonas Hiller was cleaning out his mailbox once the season was over. I got both of my requests back on the same day! I am a big fan of Mr. Hiller and the Ducks definitely under achieved this season. They have a lot of talented players so next year I can see them making the playoffs. Both requests were mailed to the Ducks.

Filip Kuba

 Card was acquired in a trade in April 2012. Thankyou to Rob who traded me this 09-10 Victory card signed in black sharpie by Filip Kuba. Rob was able to track him down TTM and I was going to write to him but I didnt have any Canadian postage at the time. Thanks again Rob! Check out his blog robsttm.blogspot.com.

Scott Hartnell

Mailed on 4-10-12 and received back on 4-20-12. Signed 1/1.
     Scott Hartnell is one of the few Flyers that sign TTM. I was very suprised to see this one come back during the intense series with Pittsburgh. Card was mailed to the Flyers.

Brandon Sutter

Card was pulled from a pack of 2010-11 Artifacts.

I am very happy about this hit. I bought three of these packs and after pulling this beauty I will have to buy more. Card is perfectly signed with blue sharpie marker.

Chris Pronger

Mailed out on 2-11-11 and received back on 2-19-12. Signed 3/3.
   Wow an entire year for these beauties to come to my mailbox! Pronger's career looks to be winding down but his was great and will always be remembered. He always personalizes cards which I'm fine with because I am not looking to sell these. Cards were mailed to the Flyers.

Mike Gartner

Mailed out on 4-20-11 and received back on 2-10-12. Signed 2/2.
     I am so glad to see these come back because I had asked Mr. Gartner to personalize one of the cards to my father who is a big fan of his. To make the return better is that he used blue which always looks great. Cards were mailed to his home.

Brian Campbell

Mailed out on 4-17-11 and received back on 3/12/12. Signed 1/1.
   I mailed this 09-10 Victory card to Brian at the end of last season so, I guess his mail from the Chicago was mailed to Florida for him to sign as a member of the Panthers. I have never had this happen before but I got the card back and thats all that matters. Campbell had some good years with Chicago before being dealt to the Panthers.

Carey Price

Mailed out on 9/5/11 and received back on 3/ 26/12. Signed 2/2.
    Carey Price is a fantastic goalie and is establishing himself as one of the leauges best. He was great in last years playoffs but this year him and the Habs will not be contending for a cup which is a disappointment. Very pleased with these. Cards were mailed to the Canadiens.

Jeremy Roenick

Mailed out on 5-23-11 and received back on 3-16-12. Signed 5/5.
Jeremy Roenick was a fantastic player on the ice and one of my favorites. JR usually takes way shorter when signing fan mail but I guess mine was at the bottom. Cards were mailed to his home.
