With opening day for the MLB coming soon, and some minor leagues starting not much later. The start of artelope season has opened. Last week I started loading up while sitting at the coast by doing seven envelopes. On Tuesday I threw in the request letter, and SASE for the return on six of the requests. Today I bagged me a return which ended up being a disappointment. First the bait...
Not my best work by any means, but it is early in the season. My request to the team was more for a business card to update the collection as the team has become a Twins affiliate. What I got was this.
Two schedules, and a letter from the team on how to get pocket schedules. I probably should show letters when I get them, but as for this one it ended up in the recycle cart. From here on out I will try to remember to show off letters. This time I was so thrown off that I just crumbled it up, and tossed it for recycling. The part that threw me off the most was it telling me in a letter that contained pocket schedules in it. How to request pocket schedules if I wanted more.
Either way this still leaves me without a business card from the Kernels that has the Twins affiliation represented. Guess I will give it another try later on this summer, and maybe I can show off the letter with that return. Until then I still have five more requests from last week out there, and the hope that they will pay off. Once those get going I sent out seven more today with two being business card requests, and the rest being more for the schedules. Hopefully the remainder of artelopes season gets better as it's a long season
