Autographs received: January 30, 2009.
Sweeeee-eeeee-eeeet! Five autographs from soon-to-be Hall of Famer Adam Oates. I got these cards back in eight days, and they are signed in black Sharpie marker.
This is the second time I have written to Oates. The first time, in 2007, Mr. Oates kept two of my cards, including that painting card you see above--actually a checklist from the 1991-92 Upper Deck set. This time around, he did not keep it--I guess he only needed one for his collection.
Regarding the 1991-92 Score set. Thanks to Mr. Oates, I now have 66 of the cards signed from this set--10% of 660 cards. Only 594 more to go.
