TTM Success: Matt Calvert
Matt Calvert helped me set a new record. It's a dubious one. A 432 day return, my longest so far. What I find most interesting is that I sent this to the Columbus Blue Jackets at the start of the 2011-12 season. According to the postmark, he sent it from Springfield, where Columbus's AHL team plays. I was considering resending this since I was seeing quicker returns for other senders. I guess this one must have got misplaced. It was a real surprise when it came back. What made me want to send to Matt was this picture. I just felt like it was an amazing picture. Even cooler is that there is a reverse angle of this pic here. I was tempted to make a double sided card. It really does look like the pictures were taken at the exact same time. Or maybe you want to see it in moving pictures. He doesn't score often, but when it does, they tend to be highlight material.
