TTM Success…from about a decade ago: Sparky Anderson
I don’t remember exactly when I sent a letter to George “Sparky” Anderson asking for his autograph. It was some point after the news that he would be inducted into the Hall of Fame, but whether it was before or after induction I can’t be sure. In any case, I have a couple of Sparky cards signed, as well as this homemade “card” (which is about the size of two baseball cards placed side-by-side).
I tried to Google my old autograph site, but I can’t remember what I called it and have no idea what the URL was. The host was FortuneCity, and I had sites devoted to my fun cards and my TTM collection. I really wish I had that written down somewhere. Even if the site itself was gone, I could probably pull it up using the Wayback Machine. I know the number 198 was used in the URL somewhere, but that’s all I got.
There was a cool article on thepostgame.com yesterday about Sparky Anderson. You should read it.
