Ticket to Stardom
This is probably my favorite set design. I've had good success with it both in baseball and football. I redesigned it for 2012, 2011, but some of the 2010 returns still trickle in.
What a fantastic return! Mr. Erskine returned 4/4 customs, plus sent 3 of his own cards, and sent me a nice note back as well.

Another cool pick up. Mr. Crosby played at a high school in the same athletic conference as the one I teach at. Glad to see him get his shot. Returned 3/4 customs (K1AO) in 8 days.

This one was out a long time (about a year and a half, but Mr. Zobrist came through. Returned 3/4 customs, personalized (K1AO) and also sent three testimonial cards. Awesome.
There's not a better player who is a better friend to the hobby right now than Pat Neshek, who is a collector himself. I had sent a TTS from 2010 to him, but skipped him in 2011. Figured I'd make him the guy I send to pretty much every set. So, here's a copy of my 2011 design and my 2012. He returned 2/3 of each design (I offered him one of both).
Sent this to 2011 Spring Training. 349 days later, it made its' way home. Returned 1/4 customs, which I'll gladly take from the
One of my favorite from the set. I sent 4, with $20 for Mr. Dempster's charity. He returned 2 signed beautifully in 70 days via the Cubs organization.
Sent care of Twins ST in March of 2011. Took 68 days, but he came through by returning 3/4 (K1AO). Great sig, too.
