    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.

    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.

    started a topic TTM - Before they were stars/when they signed

    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)
