            "I've been meaning to ask - what is a "technical success?" "

            Knowing in advance from communication...either phone or email...with the player that you know you're getting it back. However, some people said I was just taking up space when I posted my technical successes alone (I have about a half dozen outstanding, all of which I expect to get back relatively quickly), but the moderator at the time, AutographCollector, as a compromise, said it would be nice to put down which ballplayers I'd gotten it as a complete surprise from and which ones I knew were coming. I've always referred to these cards as technical successes, because the card is not in hand, but I have a verbal promise from the ballplayer saying he'd either mailied it or or would send it.

                    Oh ok, thanks for the explanation. I knew that you were working on a book or something and thought the term was related to that. Good luck with your endeavor, and I wish you continued success!

                                Did you pay his fee? Also, have you gotten Blas "Chico" Fernandez back yet?
