Finding Updated Player Addresses

This is the logo I remember from when I first started collecting autographs by mail in the early 1970s.

One of the first techniques I learned was adding ADDRESS CORRECTION REQUESTED under my return address.

Logos change. So do the times.

On a whim, I called my local post office. Essentially, the USPS voice said:

Your letter gets forwarded for one year. For the next 6 months, you’ll get your letter back with the new address label (if available).

No need to write ADDRESS CORRECTION REQUESTED.

I’ll try to verify this in the days ahead. However, I hope it’s true. Adding those words made me feel like a bill collector trying to track down a deadbeat.
