An Old TTM Success

Billy Burns

February 23rd - March 16th 2015

21 Days


A few days ago, I got some cards of an up and coming player in the A's organization, Billy Burns! Burns has had an amazing spring training, hitting .385 in 15 games. He also has a lot of speed, stealing 179 bases throughout his minor league career. 
Billy sent back 2 Bowman cards, 1 paper and 1 chrome. The paper came out okay, but the his signature looks awful. It looks like, "Elly B," and doesn't even look like Billy Burns.

The chrome that I got back came out a little better, but his signature still looks terrible. He personalized the 2 cards to me, which is cool. Hopefully Billy Burns can make the A's out of spring training, and have a great rookie year! 
Thank you for reading! 


  1. For newer cards, they need "prepped" or the signature is likely to bubble like it did on both those cards. I usually rub a small amount of baby power onto the card before sending it out, and it helps the autograph take to the card a little better. Happy ttm'ing!

    1. I never knew that... Thank you so much for the advice, I'll definitely keep that In mind!
