For starters, let me say this is NOT one of the March contest posts. I'm still amazed at the response to that, but I'll cover that in the contest winner post later.
My oldest son has a big stack of cards he wants to send away for some Spring Training TTM requests. If you were reading this blog last season, you might recall he was bitten by the autograph bug. He got Nelson Cruz (twice), Derek Holland, Seth Smith (at the game in Denver) and a few others. Now he wants to send some cards off in hopes of getting some returns.
I haven't done a TTM in a long time and wondered what is the best way to go about it.
I know it's best not to have the cards in toploaders, but should they be in penny sleeves? Is it acceptable to send 2 or 3 cards at the same time? Should he send a short hand-written note with each request? Cost wise, should we send one PWE inside a larger PWE? I'm sure there are questions I haven't even thought to ask.
Any help you can offer on this matter will be greatly appreciated. If you have ever posted any TTM tips, give me a link to that post and I'll gladly read it. He's very excited to see what may come from this and has many Rangers cards as well as some others to send out.
Thanks in advance for any help!
