For years, I’ve gotten apologies in my autograph responses.
The signer has no photos.
He’s out of photos.
For all of you talented customized index card (CIC) makers
out there, stop being humble. Your work rocks! Make an
extra. Tag it with a post-it note that says FOR YOU TO KEEP.
Note in your letter that you are including an extra so they
can share with another fan. I’m not talking about rookies who’ll
be in dozens of sets in the next year. Look at the overlooked
men of baseball’s past, those snubbed by Bowman and Topps.
Watch your success rate go up. You may even get a
printing order from a retiree.
Let me know how it turns out.
