A nice return from Johan “The Mule” Franzen.  The Mule is a great player (especially in front of the net) and apparently a great TTM signer!  I believe these cards were sent to the Detroit Red Wings (or maybe his house, I don’t keep track!), but came back just two weeks later.  He graciously signed some of my cards and personalized them to “Michl”, which I assume is probably the equivalent to Michael in Swedish!


  1. I'm jealous of your returns! Do you also send self-addressed stampped envelopes along with your cards to the US, if so – where do you get the stamps?

  2. Stamps can be ordered from the USPS. They are about 80 cents each but you also have to pay 6 bucks shipping. So it makes sense to order many. I did 20 and the total cost was about 20 bucks with the exchange rate.

    I would order by phone not by the internet…sometimes their website won't process international orders for some reason.

  3. @Brad: Haha, I send out a lot, so I hope I get my returns! Actually, I'll pick up a batch when I'm in the US for trips, but I live in Vancouver, and there is a post office which is about an hour away which is “technically” in the US, so i'm able to pick up stamps from there!

    @Dave: Get on it and write to him! Awesome signer!
