    98T. Cal Ripken Jr. ($120)

    The first five:

    1T. Doyle Alexander (Front) (Back)
    2T. Jesse Barfield (Front) (Back)
    3T. Ross Baumgarten (Front) (Back)
    4T. Steve Bedrosian (Front) (Back)
    5T. Mark Belanger (Front) (Back)

    Let's take a look at each player:

    Doyle Alexander - only 1 success on SCN, ever, and it was back in 2003. We'll skip him.

    Jesse Barfield - only a 3% success rate on SCN, with no successes since 2002. We'll skip him, as well.

    Ross Baumgarten - 90% success rate on SCN, but no successes since last May. We'll hold off for now.

    Steve Bedrosian - a 4% success rate on SCN. We'll pass on him.

    Mark Belanger - Mr. Belanger is deceased. RIP.

    Not a great start....but you gotta start somewhere!

                Looking forward to seeing some of your returns here. I'm not a big fan of getting cards signed that have a facsimilie autograph, but I love the 1982 design.

                  Agree on both counts...love the 1982 design, hate facsimile autos. I feel like facsimile autos and "super glossy" cards are two things that the "average" collector apparently love that are the bane of the existence of autograph collectors!

                  My TTM requests have slowed substantially since the days when I was sending out 500+ requests a year, but glad projects like this one keep me in the game.
