    15 Year Old TTM received

    First of all I would like to say I know this is not the TTM forum but what happened today I believe needs it's own thread.

    I don't post on card forums much anymore as I really don't collect cards anymore.

    Today I went to the mailbox and got Saturday's mail. There was only one envelope in the box. I looked at it with amazement as I thought I knew what it was but have not sent TTMs in many many years. I received a TTM with a preposted letter that had a .37 cent stamp on it. Doing a quick search .37 cent stamps were used from 2002 to 2006. I further narrowed it down to 2004 or 2005 since I moved to my current home in 2004. I am just amazed that Glenn Hubbard sent this TTM roughly 15 years later. Thanks Mr. Hubbard.

    15 Year Old TTM received

    Thatís great! Donít you wonder where itís been for the last 15 years?

    I remember reading an article a while back that someone got a ttm request back many years later from don carman of the Phillies. In the article, carman said something to the tune of he was moving and came across a bag of fan mail from his playing days that had gotten put away and forgotten about. He ended up signing them all and mailing them back.

    Edit to add that I found the article...they had gotten put behind some stuff in his garage and was doing some cleaning and came across them.

    That's wild!

    I've only had one go over a year or two... Scott Leuis. He had a Gold Leaf rookie card... I got it back 6-7 years later, LOL.

    Got mine back today...same situation. Mine was postmarked Sept. 5, 2008, and I had long given up on this one. That ties my record...Tony Graffanino came back TTM at 11 years (2004-2015) and Heath Miller took 10 years (2005-2015). Glad to see Hubbard getting to the bottom of the pile.
