Last Friday I sent some cards but I didn't post them because I didn't want a blog full of "sending card" posts. I can probably get away with one now.
Last Friday I sent out:
Clayton KershawI sent an attempt to Mr. Kershaw in spring training, but still no response. The overall success on the web shows that he is a quick signer, so I am going to try again.
Juan PierreJuan Pierre would be a great addition, not that they all are not. He fun to watch, and seems to be a pretty good guy.
Paul KonerkoMr. Konerko also seems to be a good TTM signer. The response time varies, but always remains very reasonable.
Tomorrow I will try to get these cards printed and sent out.
The first one is another Blogger Edition card.
Night OwlThe famed Night Owl! This will be a great return. Being a nocturnal creature, in-person signings are said to be rare. I hope to be the first to receive a TTM success from this legendary blogger. Wish me luck. I will be using a Giants, and Yankees free envelope so that should help.
The last card I was going to send to a biographer, but I had a better idea.
Albert EinsteinThe better idea that I had was to send this attempt to Jim Parsons, the actor who brilliantly brings Dr. Sheldon Cooper to life on The Big Bang Theory. Being the huge nerd/geek that I am, this show was made for me. I often catch myself wishing I could hang with the guys on that show. I then realize that even if they were real, I would not be smart enough.
I did realize too, that if I were lucky enough to get a response from Mr. Parsons, that I should get more than just an Einstein card signed. As AWESOME as that would be, I would have to explain why I don't have a Sheldon Cooper item signed instead. So I will also be sending the following custom card.
Dr. Sheldon Cooper
