    Send-Out Phase Complete!

    With the sending out of the Toronto Blue Jays cards, the send-out portion of this project is complete.

    A quick accounting so far:

    Total Cards: 427
    Total Unique Players: 328
    Total Requests: 84
    Total Cards Sent: 110
    Successes: 37
    Total Cards Signed: 49

    We end up sending out a little over 25% of the total cards in the sets. All thing considered, that's not too bad. We'll send to 84 of the 328 unique players in the set, which also works out to just a bit over 25%.

    We've already had successes from 44% of the requests we've sent, which is a pretty good rate considering we started this set just over 3 months ago. I expect a lot more requests to roll in over the coming weeks and months, and I'll continue to update this thread as the successes roll in.

    In the meantime, look for another project to start up really soon, based on the 1985 Topps Traded Set.
