Success with autographs through the mail?

Has anyone ever had any success with autographs through the mail? I would like to send Jenkins an 8x10 photo I took of him at a game to get signed? Has anyone ever had any luck with him through the mail?

I've done this with several Tampa Bay Bucs players, and the majority do send them back. (I send them trading cards though, helps with the postage, if they don't send them back, you aren't out much.)

Sometimes it is a wait, but I'm sure your request is thrown on a pile, and when they get to it, they do it...

Make absolute sure you include a self-addressed stamped envelope or postage paid envelope though. If they have to do that part, you can forget it!

I tried sending Jenkins a card in the mail to autograph earlier this year and it was sent back to me unsigned.


wow, that is lame!

I to have a sweet Jenks 8x10 that I need to get signed. Im thinking of going down to the players lot the day of the Wednesday Cards game. I dont have tickets for the game, can I park in the MP parking lot for free and then leave after I get some sigs? What time again should I get there for a 7pm start?

here are my successes and failures with brewers. (note all players received a baseball card)


Ben Sheets (1 week)

JJ Hardy (1.5 months)

Zack Jackson (1 month)

Corey Hart (5 months)

Failures ( all these players I sent an SASE in Spring training)

Ryan Braun

Jeff Suppan

Fransico Cordero

Rickie Weeks

One of the things that shocked me is I sent Corey Hart a card in spring and I got it back yesterday. I figured once they left Arizonia there was basically no chance they would sign it. Does anybody know if this is normal routine, or is Corey Hart just that nice of a guy? PS. whats even weirder I got it back a week after I changed my user name!

During the season the mail is sorted and distributed to the players lockers. During the off season, the mail is redirected to the players homes.


In a related topic, here is a great story about a guy who got an auto in the mail...15 years after he sent it out.


Thanks, I figured the mail went something like that.

Yes, I believe it was a homestand in July, and the funny thing I wasn't even gonna check mail for another two weeks, so I was stunned when I got my bowman rookie signed in blue!

Some more successes:

Mike Mussina ST

Michael Young (photocopied picture)

Lyle Overbay

Dirk Nowitzki (couple months but worth it)

Brandon Stockley (During NFL season)

Brew Crew in 2004 I'd hold off a couple weeks until his finger heals, because no one wants an auto from bEn Sheuts!

I've sent to a few guys...all of the ones I have listed below are successes with how long it took to get back. I was obviously a huge collector w/through the mail successes. I had a list of a ton of guys home addresses and I sent to many guys via there team etc...I have a few guys who recently died Johnny Unitas most noteable. I got his auto 3 times TTM and he even sent some of his own stuff once! Also, got some guy named Tiger Woods on an 8x10 check the bottom for how long it took to get back to me.

WOW! I was gonna buy one of those address books of players houses, but I heard they get mad that your violating their personal space. I guess I heard wrong, because that list is very impressive. What percentage would you guesstimate your success rate being bobblehead dude? And one more question did you send to players like Tom Brady and Tiger before they hit it real big or to you just have the magic touch?
