like sands through the mail...

...these are the first ttm successes i've had this spring.

i sent out a few autograph requests to spring training addresses earlier this spring, but the mailbox had been completely silent until a couple of weeks ago when i received these cards back.  a 2011 topps update jerry sands
and a diamond duos matt kemp/jerry sands
signed by the dodger rookie himself.  that diamond duos card is the one i had purchased from sportlots and wound up getting caught on some scotch tape.  glad i was able to get some use out of it after all.
sands is fighting for a spot on the roster this spring, and to be honest, i have not been following spring training at all.

thanks for signing my cards jerry!

Nice return. Was this the only return you got this spring? I have had more success so far sending to coaches as opposed to players.

This is it so far for active players. I only sent out 4 or 5 requests though. I've received some cards back from retired guys this spring which is always nice.

At least he kept his signature on HIS side of the card. It hasn't happened to me yet, but I've seen instances of dual cards being signed across the full width of the card by only one of the players. I'd be bummed if it happened to me.
