Player’s Name: Mark Sanchez

Player’s Current Address: New York Jets practice facility

Date Sent out: 9/18/09

Date Returned: 10/14/09  (26 days)

Why go after this autograph: I am a PAC-10 guy and I had to go after who could turn out to be yet another in the long line of great former Trojan passers.  In truth I made Mark part of the Goudey set I am working on.  I think it came out looking great.  I was completely shocked to not only get my card signed but also get a promotional photo signed as well as the personalization.  It’s amazing that out of all the cards I sent out, this was the one I felt I wouldn’t get back.  Turns out it’s the first one to come back.  How about that?

Any Current Certified Autographs Available: Uh, yeah a lot of them.  Most are running in the $80 – $150 region on eBay.  As a hot young rookie on a solid team, you can expect that sort of thing.  A few of them are posted below.

    Awesome! You’ve got to be psyched about getting this one back.

    Where do you find addresses for TTMs? I have a card I want to send out to DeSean Jackson.

      Usually If I am sending to a player playing, I will send it c/o of the team to the corporate address. For players, sometimes you have to do some detective work. Find out where they live by using a people search, then start the searching process for an address. If you come up empty let me know.

  2. That looks really good Mike. Sweet success!

    BTW all: there is a new contest this week on my blog for an autographed card so check it out!

    Beardy – has team addresses for free. I think it makes you register, but it gives a good list of successes/failures that updates daily. If you want, you can pay for larger address databases, but teams (including spring training, etc) are free.

    Mark Sanchez is a really nice guy about giving autographs. There was about 10 of us in a small crowd that got something signed. I asked him to sign my USC flag last year. I got it after a weekday practice, Pete Carol signed it too. Go USC!!!!

    Surprising sucess, I wouldn’t have expected Sanchez to sign during the season but that is so cool.Even personalizing it, that is an extra bonus.

    He seems to have changed his auto on your two, adding what looks like a football (stitches) and the # sign

    There have been rumours on a lot of other sites that he uses a stamp and now a secretary signs them but I don’t know how legit it is.
