OK, so that may be vastly overstating it however, it is nice to be back.
Long story short, I haven’t sent out a request in over 70 days – Thanksgiving with friends, trip with my wife to Mexico for our 10th Anniversary, mom in town for Christmas, bunch of year end work stuff and now, wisdom teeth extraction. Fun times.
Oh and am in the process of getting a website together for the 15k sports cards I have lying around. Only 4k uploaded at current but have a look if that is up your alley – http://www.lumberjackcards.com
Getting back on the stick today and already have about a dozen or so requests sent out today, I will update those at the bottom. Here is a quick review of what has come in since last we spoke (returns have significantly diminished without any going out – shocking how that works).
#85 – Kevin Bass – 10 days
#289 Bob Kipper – 9 Days
#635 Mookie Wilson – 31 days – really didn’t expect to get this one back without having to pay a fee, was very happy and surprised (even as a Red Sox fan).
#638 Rich Bordi – 9 days
258 Steve Yeager – 10 days, returned with no sig and this note
#470 Dave Dravecky – 34 days, was very pleased to add this guy to the collection!
#195 Mike Pagliarulo – 9 days for the following RTS
#226 Max Venable – 13 days
#721 Tommy Herr – 14 days and one of my personal favorites growing up – would have loved a sharpie instead of ball point but I will take it!
#327 Dale Sveum – 28 Days
#103 Rick Aguilera – 32 days – another one I never figured I would get back without sending in some money, very happy to add this one.

#498 Bob Kearney – 54 days
#351 Gene Garber – 91 days
#72 Walt Terrell – 30 days
#58 Thad Bosley – 93 days – thought this one was a waste of an envelope, was pretty pumped to get this one back as he was always a fan favorite in the late eighties!

#227 George Frazier – 70 days
#187 Mark Huismann – 100 days with a little Christmas note.
#253 Eddie Milner – 88 days

Good chunk of cards and returns there but then again that is two months worth of mail. I will update another post today or tomorrow with the outbound requests that I have going out this weekend. Pain meds for the wisdom teeth are both giving me time to get some work done and knocking me on my butt, just have to time it all right.
