This is a website all about autograph collecting through the mail (TTM). This is primarily for people who enjoy receiving autographs from their favorite players and for their collection. Here you can find autographs that my friend and I have received in the mail, fan packs from the MLB, NBA, NFL, NCAA, and minor league baseball teams, abbreviations that are used commonly during TTM, as well as emails that we have sent out to collegiate sports coaches. You can also find out who returns cards and who doesn't, helping you save money, and cards. Also, if you are ever wondering about addresses for certain players, write on the blog and I will do my best to find them, but there are no guarantees. One more very important reminder. You should always send cards to some of your favorite players, even if you don't know whether or not they sign. It is a great feeling to get an autograph back from one of your favorite players who you were not expecting to get back.
How to Successfully Write TTM Letters;
- Go through cards in your collection and look for players to whom you would like to send letters to. If you don't have a card of a particular player, it's okay to print a picture off of the internet or send them an index card.
- Get computer paper and write, or type, the letters. Sometimes if you write them by hand the players appreciate that you took the extra time and effort.
- Get 2 different sized envelopes; the smaller one should be able to fit inside the bigger one.
- Find the address of the player's team, or the player's home. This will be used to address the big envelope.
- Address the smaller envelope with your address, so that the player doesn't have to spend time addressing your envelope.
- Put stamps on both small and big envelope.
- Put the card, the letter, and the small envelope inside the big envelope.
- Close it up, send it out, and be prepared to wait. Depending on the player, the waiting period could be anywhere from four days to a year.
