08/06/2016 – TTM Tip! Engaging “Beast Mode”

08/06/2016 – TTM Tip! Engaging “Beast Mode”

In today’s video we talk about a controversial way of sending out TTMs en masse, what I call: Beast Mode! It involves using a form letter to send out a huge number of TTMs to an entire team at once. I usually do this at the beginning of a football season to help “seed” TTMs throughout the rest of the season.

This can hurt your percentage of successful returns if that is important to you, but it can also yield some fantastic results. Some players I received when using Beast Mode include Luke Kuechly, JJ Watt and Jonathan Papelbon.

This is my process, and yours may differ. But I wanted to share how I do it with you.

This is less of an issue for newer signatures in gold and silver sharpie, but it could still happen! I also give my advice for long-term 8×10 storage in this episode of Troy’s Tuesday TTM Tips!
