New member here and just getting into this hobby. Been a star wars geek my entire life. Looking at my collection of figs through the years and thought it might be kinda nice to get some autographs on them. Would be a neat bucket-list thing to have.
Have questions regarding sending figs ttm to get autographed. First, I understand that I may never get my stuff back. Prepared for that. Knew a guy that collected mini NFL helmets ttm and learned a lot from him. He would affix the return postage to the inner flaps of the box addressed to himself so the signer could simply flip the top flaps around, run a strip of tape across it and drop it in the mail. Of course, I have no problem throwing some cash in there to make up for the actor's trouble.
Question is....How successful is this approach in the Star Wars field. Has anyone successfully gotten action figures back in the mail and with whom? Just curious to know what my odds are of getting some of these things signed. If I will have a 99% failure rate on getting a signed fig back it may not be worth it.
I own a locksmith business and any travel I do has to be related to my business, so Comic Cons and Celebration events unfortunately won't be an option for me.
Thanks for your time folks,
