The fourth item I sent out using the through the mail strategy I started a couple months ago was delivered in the mail today. I sent an official Rawlings Major League Baseball to former Red Sox great Bobby Doerr. Mr. Doerr is the oldest living member of the National Baseball Hall of Fame, at the young age of 98. I had read that Mr. Doerr was fantastic about signing everything through the mail, and I happen to think it's awesome that at his age he's so willing to respond to fan mail and fulfill autograph requests. Here is a photo of how the ball turned out.

Something arrived in my mailbox yesterday with perfect timing, as the Chicago Cubs had just won the World Series for the first time since 1908 the day prior. I sent a baseball to Ryne Sandberg back on October 20th, and the former Cubs great (and Major League Baseball Hall of Famer) sent me the ball back signed. This is my third success out of three tries with the through the mail autograph website I'd stumbled across previously. I currently have a fourth baseball out to another Hall of Famer, but it looks to perhaps have been lost in transit. Here is the photo of the Sandberg ball;
