I have to admit I was getting a little nervous about my Carl Erskine request.  He's one of the greatest signers in the entire TTM hobby.  As automatic as it gets.  For over four months - an almost unheard of wait by his standards - it definitely seemed like mine was a goner.  But, as I'm learning all the time, patience is a virtue for an autograph collector and you should never write anything off in this hobby.  The wait was more than worth it, as Mr. Erskine added a second card, both of them signed gorgeously in thin blue Sharpie.  Thanks, Oisk!
