2018 Finale

The successes came in all the way up until the last day of the year. I opted to skip on the Rangers' Toy Drive this year as the list of players was underwhelming (much like the Rangers as a whole). But I did do some mailing and got some quick responses.

Chris Davis, c/o home, 1/1, 1 week
Maurice Cheeks, c/o team, 3/3, 1 week

Jack Sikma, c/o Sikma Enterprises, 5/5, 1 week

Dick Schofield Sr., c/o home, 2/2, 2 weeks
Ann Meyers-Drysdale, c/o home, 2/2, 2 weeks

Harold Landry, c/o team, 3/3, 8 months
Josh Reddick, c/o team, 1/1, 4 months
Rene Lachemann, c/o home, 4/4, 2 weeks
Chuck Seelbach, c/o home, 3/3, 2 weeks
Paul Westphal, c/o home, 2/2, 2 weeks

Scott Manning, c/o work, 2/2, 3 months
Craig Ehlo, c/o home, 4/4, 2 weeks
Hersey Hawkins, c/o home, 4/4, 2 weeks
Terry Porter, c/o team, 2/3, 2 weeks, returned one unsigned

John Stearns, c/o home, 4/5, 2 weeks, kept one

Tippy Martinez, c/o home, 4/4, 3 weeks
Danny Ferry, c/o home, 4/5, 3 weeks, returned one unsigned
Gail Goodrich, c/o home, 2/2, 3 weeks
Jerry Sloan, c/o home, 5/5, 3 weeks
Cale Yarborough, c/o home, 2/2, 2 weeks, personalized both

Looking back through the numbers, 2018 was my biggest year in the hobby. I ended up getting close to 1500 items signed myself (1476 to be exact), plus picked up another 300-400 in trades, purchases, pack pulls, and gifts. I had my biggest ever single month (270 in August), two-month span (528 in July/August), and three-month span (767 in June/July/August), and a record long streak of daily mail successes (25 delivery days from September 13 to October 12).
