They can't all be successes and for free.
Anywho I sent Sixto Lezcano two cards to his home address I got from Fanmail.biz around 3/19/12.
Yesterday (4/3/12) I got home and was greeted with one of my return TTM envelopes. I was excited, who doesn't love getting TTM's back?
Anyways I opened up the envelope and inside were both cards I sent, unsigned and small piece of paper.
We at least he sent my cards back.
I didn't realize Sixto charged for autos. At first I thought it was maybe a request to donate to a charity, but it was not.
Now don't get me wrong I don't know if I'd have a problem paying for an autograph and if I was to try this again I would most defiantly send a ball to get signed not a card, but the last sentence had me a little worried.
Chris Potter runs an autograph service that has some pretty big name clientele. And from what I could find he's pretty well respected and runs a good service. Has anyone out there ever used him?
Unfortunately for me that means no Sixto autograph to add to my Brewers TTM project. But I also learned that one of his clients is Del Crandon so I won't be getting his auto on card TTM either most likely. But if anyone is interested Chris is having a Cecil Fielder signing later this month. I'm tempted to pick up an autographed ball. Forty bucks for the auto, the ball and shipping seems pretty reasonable.
