    Cards 69 - 72

    The next group:

    69T. Candy Maldonado (Front)(Back)
    70T. Roger Mason (Front)(Back)
    71T. Bob McClure (Front)(Back)
    72T. Andy McGaffigan (Front)(Back)

    Candy Maldonado has a 59% success rate on SCN and no successes since 2010. We'll skip him.

    Roger Mason has a 91% success rate on SCN, although he's been a bit spotty of late. We'll send a request his way, though.

    Bob McClure shows 0 successes on SCN in 32 total attempts. Guess the new Sox pitching coach is not a TTM guy.

    Andy McGaffigan has a 48% success rate on SCN. We'll skip him.

    Cards: 72
    Requests: 17

    90T. Gary Redus (Front) (Back)
    91T. Bip Roberts (Front) (Back)
    92T. Billy Jo Robidoux (Front) (Back)

    Rey Quinones shows no successes on SCN, ever, in 5 total attempts. I believe he lives in his native PR. We'll pass.

    Gary Redus has only a 13% success rate and no successes since 2008, according to SCN, so we'll skip him.

    Bip Roberts has only a 16% success rate and no successes since 2005, so we'll pass on him, as well.

    Billy Jo Robidoux has a 68% success rate on SCN, but no successes since November. Not sure if he's stopped signing or not. Will hold off a bit and see if successes start flowing from him again.

    This completes the send-out portion of the project. I ended up sending out 35 of the 132 cards (26.5%), and have already had 14 successes (40%). The project took just over a month to complete.

    I'll continue to update this thread with successes as they arrive.

    Cool project, there was a yard sale recently with a piles of traded sets for a buck a pop. Since most 80s stuff is dime a dozen this is a fun way to collect. I recall having good luck with Catfish way back in the day, will have to post my '71 topps

    Thanks...these projects have been a lot of fun, and have been a great way to keep myself motivated to send out autograph requests.

    As you mentioned, many of the traded sets are pretty cheap (for some, I pay more for shipping than the actual set) so it's an inexpensive and fun project!

    Thanks for looking!
