    Yankees

    Up next, the Yankees. 1990 was back in the days when the Yankees really DID suck.

    111. Azocar, Oscar
    112. Leyritz, Jim
    113. Maas, Kevin
    114. Mills, Alan
    115. Nokes, Matt
    116. Perez, Pascual

    None of these guys appear to be good signers at all, so we'll pass by the Yankees without a single request sent out. I guess the Yankees DO suck*!

    * - at signing 1990 Fleer Update cards.

    A's

    Only 2 A's in the set.

    117. Canseco, Ozzie
    118. Sanderson, Scott

    Neither of these guys appear to particularly reliable signers. Canseco has a 0% success rate on SCN, in fact.

    Travis Fryman is signing c/o Erie SeaWolves this season. Also, I had a success last season with Mark Davis c/o the minor league team that he was coaching with. I know Davis is coaching again this season in the Minors. Just not sure who with.

    Is Fryman with Erie this year? The best I can tell, he's managing the Mahoning Valley Scappers this year. That being said, Erie doesn't have a hitting coach listed on their web site. According to SCN, the last success with him was in April c/o Indians ST.

    The best I can find for Davis is that he may have been with the Missoula Osprey earlier this year, but isn't anymore.

    The one thing I do know is that minor league baseball team's web sites are AWFUL.

    Mariners

    Up next, the Mariners.

    119. Martinez, Tino
    120. Schaefer, Jeff
    121. Young, Matt

    Of these three, only Young appears to be a decent signer. I'll give him a shot.

    He is the manager of Mahoning Valley and is a good signer, at least IP. I think he signs his mail c/o the team. If his habits are anything like his IP, it's worth a shot.

    SCN has 5 attempts to him going back to early April c/o the team with no luck. Maybe he waits until after the season?

    If you go to those games and need some Fryman cards, I'm sure I have some if that'd help!

    Rangers

    Up next, the Rangers.

    122. Bohanon, Brian
    123. Huson, Jeff
    124. Manon, Ramon

    Of the three Rangers in the set, Huson looks to be a pretty good signer, so we'll give him a shot.

    Blue Jays

    The last team in the set is the Blue Jays.

    125. Mielke, Gary
    126. Blair, Willie
    127. Hill, Glenallen
    128. Olerud, John
    129. Sojo, Luis
    130. Whiten, Mark

    The Olerud I already sent out and had a success with. Mielke and Whiten appear to be solid signers, so they'll get requests, as well. I've seen recent successes from Blair and Hill despite poor percentages, so I think I'll give them a shot, too.

    So, 5/6 Blue Jays with requests, with one already a success.

    With the sending out of the Blue Jays this week, this will complete work on the set.

    The final two cards in the set:

    131. Nolan Ryan
    132. Checklist

    Won't be going out.

    Final send out numbers aren't great for the set, with only 38 requests going out from a set with 132 cards. For whatever reason, just not a great group of signers here.

    Of the 38 requests sent, we've had successes so far for 17 of them (44.7%) and had one RTS. We're hoping a few more successes will trickle in and get us over 50% for this project.

    I'll probably do a bit more random TTM requests the rest of the season, and then maybe pick another project like this this coming off-season.
