I was perusing my Mailbag database, and I noticed that I have had a pretty good success rate over the past year.  I decided to share my success rate for 2009.  Hopefully this will continue to improve as the successes keep piling up!

Mailings - I sent 255 requests in 2009, and thus far have received 190 successful returns.  That gives me a success rate of 75%.  Not bad!

Total items - I sent 546 items in 2009, and as of today 427 of them have been returned to me signed.  That comes out to a 78% success rate.

My quickest returns were from Chris Knapp and Roberto Hernandez.  In both cases I had the signed cards in my hands 3 days after mailing!

The slowest return so far was from Orlando Cabrera, which took 224 days.  I expect this to change though, as there are always a few returns that show up long after you've given up on them.

I'll be doing my (belated) first mailings of 2010 in the next couple of weeks.
