John Stockton

Success (2/2) - 51 days

Huge success from Hall of Famer John Stockton. I didn't expect that he would accomodate my request but he did. I sent the request last 2/8/2011 to the Utah Jazz address. I got it back today - 3/31/2011. I sent 2 custom 3R photos and he signed them both. I'm very happy with this return. What a great way to close a slow month.

Thank you Mr. Stockton for the very nice auto and being good to your fans!

Shaquille O'Neal (2nd)


Success (4/4) - 24 days

2nd return from Shaq. The request was mailed last 3/7/2011 to his home address. I got it back today, 3/31/2011. I sent 4 trading cards and he signed them all. The autograph is barely legible. I guess he is being swamped with tons of request right now.

Thank you again Mr. O'neal for the nice return.

John Starks

Success (1/2) - 49 days

I got this return from former New York Knicks guard. The request was mailed last 2/4/2011 to his foundation. I got it back on 3/25/2011. I sent 3 custom 3R photos. He only signed one which I'm a bit dissappointed with since I plan to give the duplicate to my brother. Then again, he doesn't really have to sign anything or reply.

Thank you Mr. Starks for the nice auto!

LA Laker Girls

Success (1/0) - 11 days

I got this very nice return from LA Laker Girls. I made the request via email last 3/14/2011 via the LA Lakers website. I got this on 3/25/2011. Very fast turn around for an international mail. I'm very pleased with this return since I have not been getting a lot of returns this month.

Thank you very much LA Laker Girls and Ms. Lisa Estrada (Director) for being great to your fans!!!

Jerry Sloan

Success (4/4) - 35 days

I got a very nice return from a class act, Hall of Famer, Coach Jerry Sloan. I thought this will be a RTS since I sent this to him 2 days before he announced his resignation as Head Coach of the Jazz. It must have been forwarded by the Jazz to his home/personal address or international mail was just amazingly fast ...well unlikely.

The request was mailed last 2/8/2011 to the Utah Jazz address. I got it back on 3/15/2011. I sent 3 custom 3R photos and 1 trading card for autograph. He signed all and personalized it.

Coach Sloan is one of the best coaches in the history of the NBA and I appreciate the fact that he really spends time to read fan mails and personalizes his autographs.

Thank you very much Coach Sloan for being good to your fans!!!

Shaquille O'Neal

Success (8/4) - 31 days

After a couple weeks of drought and bad start this month with a RTS from Mr. Robinson. I was surprised to get a return from the Big Shamrock!

The request was mailed last 2/8/2011 to his home address. I got it back on 3/11/2011. I sent 4 custom 3R photos for autograph with duplicates for him to keep. Amazingly he signed all 8. My brother is a big fan of my brother so the extra 4 will be a great present for him. 

This is my biggest success so far. Thank you very much Mr. O'Neal for being good to your fans!!!

David Robinson (RTS)

Failure (Return to Sender) - 52 days

I received a failure from Mr. Robinson. I sent my request last 1/11/2011 and got a RTS (return to sender) on 3/5/2011. This is my second RTS and it seems his last known TTM address is no longer valid.

I'll try again once I have a new address. Very disappointed with this but I'll keep trying since he is my favorite NBA player.
