Sometimes, Your TTM Return Is Better Than Expected

Unfortunately, I'm a Sports Illustrated subscriber. I say that because I pay $80 a year for a magazine that goes from my mailbox to my magazine rack, usually without me even opening it.

A few weeks ago, however, the SI cover was graced by Pirates closer Jason Grilli. "Hmm...wouldn't it be cool if I could get Grilli to sign this for me?" I thought to myself. So, I dropped it in the mail, along with his 2013 Heritage card, to see if it would happen.

BOOM.  How awesome is this?  Signed and inscribed to me - I couldn't ask for anything better.  By far, this is my favorite TTM response.

"Judson, Best Wishes!  Jason Grilli 39"
 He also signed and numbered the card, which just adds to the sheer awesomeness of this TTM. Truly, I am a big fan of Grilli now!
