The Collector's Corner: TTM Project Update

The TTM project has started and I’ve already received 1 back – much quicker than I was expecting…

I sent out the first batch of the TTM project last Friday (5/23/2008) to the following players:
Hank Aaron – Braves
Adrian Cardenas – Clearwater
John Danks – White Sox
Ross Detwiler – Potomac
Sean Doolittle – Stockton
Livan Hernandez – Twins
Jason Heyward – Rome
Ubaldo Jimenez – Rockies
Matt LaPorta – Huntsville
Chris Perez – Cardinals
Mark McCormick – Springfield
Dustin Pedroia – Red Sox
Ryne Sandberg – Peoria
Max Scherzer – Diamondbacks
Joe Smith – Mets
Miguel Tejada – Astros
Jess Todd – Springfield
Matt Wieters – Frederick

I changed some of the list, but I have the other guys from the old list ready to go for part two. I’ve seen recent successes with Hank Aaron c/o the Braves and Ryne Sandberg c/o the Peoria Chiefs, so I figured I’d send a low value card.

Well, after 5 days I have my first success: Chris Perez of the Cardinals. I sent 1 card and 2 tickets from his MLB debut (and I offered one to him, which he declined – I am sending him the ticket from his first win, which I told him I have). He also answered the questions I sent him, which will be used in a future article. So, I’m sitting at 6% success rate (1 for 18).

I’ll keep everyone updated.
