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!
