MLB R.A. Dickey SUCCESS (SEE NOTE) 2/9/19
Posted: Sat Feb 09, 2019 6:14 pm
So...I sent a LOR, SASE, and 05 Topps Total card on 1/22/19. Got response 2/9/19, card returned, signed in blue marker, with my LOR also returned, with a note written on the back of my LOR that read, "Please don't send fan mail to my personal home!" Therefore, I am choosing not to share the address I sent the card and request to. In my defense, I didn't know I was sending to his home address. I was born and raised in TN, and still live in TN today, just like Dickey. (Side note: He currently lives about 25 miles from me.) I've followed his career since he was in high school. Then he went to UT and pretty much obliterated every UT pitching record. So my LOR was pretty detailed about how I followed his career (and read his book a couple years ago). That's probably why he chose to sign my card and return it, even though he didn't like the fact I sent it to his home address. The autograph success rate for him is pretty low, so I'm beyond happy to get a signed return. Even if it came with an ugly note. I ain't mad at him, and I will thank him by not sharing his address.
