    Very nice! I hope to see Nate Gold and John Maine there, since I made those. But seriously, I only have two signed 8x10's...Steve Dalkowski (IP) and Jay Payton (gift, just yesterday).

    Usually $1.18 to the player and I add three 41 cent stamps for the sase.

    Thank you.

    Thanks JW!
    According to what I have seen (since I got back from him last year) he still does.

    i print my photos out at home as well by using cbssportsline.com to get the pictures, but how do you get them of the hall of famers or retired players?

    Wow what a nice amount of ttm photos. I can't imagine how many cards you have. I got about four 8x10 autos off of ebay. I'm curious to know how much it costs to print and How do you ship the 8x10's to the players?

    Thanks,
    Pat

    Hey Pat!
    Long time no hear from!

    Thank you for the kind words. ONE of these days I will sit down and literally count all of my signed cards, postcards, and everything else that I have signed. I have been doing this for a long time and lord knows it'll take me days and days to do.
    For me to print costs nothing. I print from home. The only thing it costs me is the photo paper and ink cartridges.
    To send an 8x10 out usually runs me anywhere between a buck to a dollar 20 or so. The sase I slap on three 42 cent stamps and never have an issue getting them back. To ship I buy 11x14 envelopes bulk from Staples and the sase is a size smaller.

    Thanks for the help. I'll be on here once in a while. I have been on another trading site working on my Tom Seaver auto collection. I hope everything is going well and wish you well on the ttm's.
