Phillies TTM: Week of 1/3/12

Considering I have not sent any items out since early December, I didn't expect to make a TTM post for another couple weeks.  But, the first mail day of 2012 brought a huge surprise to me.  After 20 months on the road, my 5"x7" Phillies player post card of Dave Hollins returned home.  Sent in April 2010, this is by far my longest wait ever for a TTM request.  The 1993 Phillies remain my all-time favorite team, and Hollins was one of the guys I loved to watch play.  I am really glad to get this card back.

Also returned this week was my 1960 Sports Illustrated that I had sent to Art Mahaffey in November.  Evidently Mr. Mahaffey is no longer accepting mail at his P.O. Box.  The post office provided a forwarding address, but there were several stamps on the envelope that indicated there was not enough postage to get it to him.  Not sure if I missed a postal increase, or what happened....but, I have always used four stamps to send 8x10's and magazines, and never had an issue before.  No sweat though...I will figure it out and try that new address in a week or two.
