  • TTM - Before they were stars/when they signed

    Here's a place to post successes with current and past player who were once TTM signers (either in the minors of before they became famous/non-signer) Most of these came before I posted on Baseball Fever, so I figured I'd post them just to add to the other successes I've been posting here for a while.

    Jason Isringhausen - 1/1 - approx 1997-8 - (c/o New York Mets)
    Jason Giambi - 1/1 - approx 1997-8 - (c/o Oakland Athletics)
    Barry Zito - 1/1 - spring 2001 - (c/o Oakland Athletics)
    Ben Sheets - 1/1 - summer 2001 (c/o Milwaukee Brewers)
    Rocco Baldelli - 1/1 - summer 2003 - (c/o Tampa Bay Devil Rays)
    Esteban Loaiza - 1/1 - summer 2003 - (c/o Chicago White Sox)

              I'm still new to the hobby, but so far I'd say my biggest success is Evan Longoria. I got him during Spring Training. I've gotten a few more prospects, but he is the first to pan out so far.

                  hehehe. Nice autograph though. Did King Felix stick to the case or was it just a bad sharpie?
                  Yeah, Orel was undoubtedly a star in 2004... but I haven't seen any recent successes from him so he falls into that "when they signed" category. As far as King Felix, that success was before I powdered my cards. It looks ok, but a cleaner sig would look much nicer. The same thing happened to me with Melky Cabrera when he was with the Trenton Thunder. Powdering glossy cards is always worth it.
