I have not sent anything out in three weeks. There are still plenty of autographs to be had, just took a pause to consider who is appearing locally and decide whether or not I could send something like the 1983 team picture project and get it back before Marty Bystrom's appearance on May 7th at Granite Run Mall. Put a few things in the mail this weekend, so hope to see some more returns in the coming weeks. After being shut out again during the week of April 9th I had a huge surprise show up this week...
Alex Johnson - 1964 Phillies Album, Bulletin Clipping
I bought a partial set of these 1964 Phillies Album, Bulletin clippings at a flea market a few years ago as part of a package deal. The main get was a scrapbook of the 1955 Phillies season, and inside the front cover were 18 of these neatly clipped pictures. They stayed there for a while until I decided I should either sell them or do something with them. Like any good hoarder, I decided to get them autographed.
I am not sure the date I sent this to Mr. Johnson - but, it was sometime in the Spring/Summer of 2010. I had written it off long ago and was really surprised and excited to see it sitting in my mailbox. Inside the envelope was the autograph, my original letter and five crisp dollar bills I had included. With this return I have now had 14 of the original 18 pictures autographed.
