TTM Success: Ryne Sandberg

I sent a 1989 Score First Night Game at Wrigley Field card to Ryne Sandberg at the Phillies with a really nice letter hoping to get the card signed rather than the standard manager postcard.

It didn't work, but at least I got something. I sent the request on 6/1 and I got it back on 7/2. 

I actually feel lucky to have gotten something back. On 6/26 Ryne stepped down as manager of the Phillies. The envelope was postmarked on 6/24. 

I know it is a form letter, but it is kind of ironic given the circumstances.


  1. You should try again now that he's unemployed.

  2. Not bad, wish you got it on the Score card but I'm sure you'll find a way to take care of that one, especially now that he's without a job
