Cpt. Caveman's TTM autographs #29

Hello and welcome to another weekly TTM successes with a great new look. Today my daughter Winter turns 11 years old and she already has an amazing autograph collection. Lol alot better than mine at that age anyways. Sadly we lost a great musician and founding member of Jefferson Airplane when Paul Kantner passed away this week. I hope all my east coast readers made it through the big winter storm. We received 20 inches here and I finally got dug out and made it to the post office this week so ill get right to the successes but before I do I ran across a PSA website with examples of autographs to compare with and for research purposes. It doesn't have everyone but it does have a bunch of big name celebs and sports stars so if you're interested you can check it out here. First Monday brought an awesome return from Sir George Martin also known as the Fifth Beatle and it only took about six months for this legendary Music producer to sign our CD cover and return it. To finish off the day we got both pictures we sent to the Captain of the 1980 Olympic gold medal winning hockey team Mike Eruzione back signed in just over a month. Mr. Eruzione made the winning shot in the "Miracle on Ice" game against the soviet team insuring the gold. Wednesday brought a super cool and very fast reply from Elinor Donahue. We sent her two pictures from the Star Trek episode "Metamorphosis" and they returned signed in only eight days. Along with her work on Star Trek you also may remember her from "Father Knows Best" and as the pharmacist Ellie Walker on "The Andy Griffith Show". Thursday brought two more successes. First in just two weeks we got both pictures back signed from Michael C. Hall. Super amazing success. He was in a play that ended on the 17th of January we took a shot and sent letter to the venue address on the 12th and never really expected anything to come back. We tried his agency address about two years ago and nothing so it was a great mail day to get these back. To finish off the day Mr. John Williams the legendary composer who created the music from so many great films we love sent us a signed cut index card in a top loader. We sent a blank autograph card but I guess he has these pre signed and ready to go and it took about a month and a half to get ours. Friday brought one reply a 25 day early birthday present for me. Winter wrote Orel Hershiser about two weeks ago and sent a ball for him to sign. He not only signed it but inscribed it to me with happy Bday and also included a 1988 Cy Young LA Dodgers inscription. Super amazing success from one of my favorite pitchers growing up. To finish out our week we got both pictures back signed from Wrestling legend Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat. They both returned in just over two weeks. That's it for this week. Have a great weekend and ill be back next week with more TTM autograph collecting goodness.
