Card of the Day: 2004 Topps Archives All-Time Favorites Peter Ueberroth *autograph

ueberroth1The TTM bug has bitten me again. I go through phases of loving and hating the through the mail autograph process. I love receiving the autographs in the mail, but at times I hate writing requests and then receiving nothing back. I know it’s part of the game. But, all it takes is one return to re-energize anyone.

Today I present my latest TTM success, and it’s another good one in my mind. Here we’ve got a 2004 Topps Archives All-Time Favorite base card signed by former Major League Baseball Commissioner Peter Ueberroth.

It took less than a week to receive this card back in the mail, and it’s a great success not only because it’s an autograph of a former MLB commissioner, but also because it’s the signature of a Time Magazine Man of the Year (1984), Organizer of the 1984 Olympics (Los Angeles), Former Chairman of the United States Olympic Committee, and a Director of The Coca-Cola Company.

If you care to know more, check his Wiki page.

But perhaps the coolest part of owning this card and obtaining this autograph is the fact that Ueberroth is one of the notable alumni of San Jose State University, my alma mater. I noted such in my letter to him, and he added an inscription of his own without my request. This is awesome.

Now if only I can find a good home address for Anthony Telford.

  1. That is awesome. Anthony Telford – why him? I remember when he played for my hometown Rochester Red Wings in Triple-A for a few years in the early 90s. I ended up getting his autograph at least 10 times…

  2. Telford went to SJSU.
