A Nice Surprise Al MacInnis Style



My cousin plays AAA hockey and he got the chance to play against Al MacInnis' son, so he approached him after the game and asked if he could sign some cards for him. Al did sign and my cousin gave me one of the doubles that he got. He said Al couldn't have been nicer and signed and talked to any person who wanted to.

Don Baylor - Baseball

Don Baylor
c/o Colorado Rockies
2 of 2
25 days

Don played 19 seasons in the MLB and was known as a power hitter. He hit 338 home runs and was a very accomplished player through his career, earning 3 Silver Slugger awards and an AL MVP award. He is currently a hitting coach for the Colorado Rockies, a team that he once was the manager.

Gilles Gratton - Hockey


Gilles Gratton
c/o Home
5 of 3 also signed 2 IC's
18 days
Gilles was a junior standout but it didn't translate to the pro game as he showed flashes of brilliance in the NHL and WHA. He was occasionally hot between the pipes but was better known as an eccentric figure who painted wild designs or animal faces on his masks and was outspoken throughout his career. He retired at the young age of 24.

Jeremy Guthrie - Baseball

Jeremy Guthrie
c/o Baltimore Orioles
3 of 3 Personalized them To Robert like I requested
16 days

Jeremy was considered one of Cleveland's top pitching prospects but never florished as a starter for the Tribe. He was picked up by Baltimore and has become a very good pitcher with great stuff. He is usually overlooked since he plays in one of baseball's toughest divisions. His season has been up and down but he has began to settle in and will likely become a tough #1 or 2 pitcher for the O's. Jeremy was so kind to sign all 3 cards that I sent him. He must have took the time to read my letter also as he personalized all the cards to me and wrote an awesome inscription on my postcard. That is one of the things that makes TTM autographs so great, the autograph isn't just a generic scribble but he took the time to make it a very cool collectable. Thanks so much Jeremy and best of luck.

Hopefully I can start posting full time here. Ive been pretty lazy about it recently.

Brad Ausmus

21 days

Brad has always been a great signer along with a very good catcher. He has made stops in San Diego, Detroit, Houston, and is currently playing for the Dodgers. While playing behind Russell Martin, he is having a much better hitting season batting over .280 which is 30 points higher that his career average.

Tyler Ennis - Hockey

Tyler Ennis
c/o Medicine Hat Tigers
3 of 3
31 days


Drafted 1st Round 26nd overall by the Buffalo Sabres in the 2008 NHL Draft
Current Junior Club: Medicine Hat Tigers (WHL)
Career Junior Stats: 245 games 115 goals 121 assists 236 points
This Season's Junior: 61 games 43 goals 42 assists 85 points


About Tyler: He is a small shifty forward at 5'9", 164lbs who will have to get stronger if he wants to be productive at the next level. His point totals from last year are a bit before his previous year but his did miss 9 games many due to the World Juniors where he won gold for Canada. He showed up at training camp this season and saw the kind of shape teammate Nathan Gerbe was and asked him how he could get like that. Think Martin St. Louis but more of a pure goal scorer. He is the 3rd best prospect in the Buffalo system and rated a 8.0C by HockeyFutures.com.


Any Current Certified Autographs Available: You can pick up Tyler's autograph for $3-$10 for most of his autos and $20-$30 for H&P Superbox autos on Ebay.
