Spring Training TTM Success

I had sent lots of cards out to Padres spring training and last week I got two more back.  One was Clayton Richard, one of the key parts of the Jake Peavey trade. 
It is interesting that he signed in two different colors, I had sent him the brown Sharpie.  Whenever I send out autograph requests I enclose a Sharpie, a self addressed stamped envelope and some extra cards if I have them available.  I had sent Clayton some extra cards I had, he sent me back a note thanking me for the cards.  When I looked at the front of the envelope there was some kind of writing inside the envelope.  When I opened the envelope to take the cards out I found the note.
I also received the one card that I sent Joe Thatcher and he signed it with the green Sharpie I sent him.  It is easier to see in the scan than it is in person.

That's pretty cool. With the way I open TTM envelopes, I doubt that I would have even noticed that.

Very cool successes. I agree with zman, I probably would have missed Clayton's message too.
