First, the good news: I recently received returns from the following people: Juan Pierre, Ryan Dempster, Herb Simpson and Alan Trammell. Pretty solid returns, one of the Dempster autos runs off the card and Trammell only signed 1 of the 4 cards that I sent him. I was hoping to get him to sign one of each of the 2 cards and I offered him to keep the double copies of the two cards that I sent. Overall, it's always exciting to see my return envelopes arrive in the mail. I'd highly recommend this part of the hobby to those of you who have doubles/triples sitting around collecting dust.
The bad news: my Mac got fried over the weekend when I accidentally spilled some coffee on it. The worse news: my hard drive was also fried and all of my documents were lost. One of those documents was a detailed excel spreadsheet that tracked the TTMs that I sent, date sent, return dates and details. I'll continue to update my TTM results but won't have sent dates for some of them as I lost that information. Not only was it a big financial loss (buying a new laptop) but a gut punch as well, because I kept pretty detailed inventories of my collection. Oh well, time to start from scratch.
Thanks for reading!
