Baseball players are some of the best signers of all professional athletes. With some politeness, accurate postage and a friendly note, you’ll find much success with the individuals below.

The list below showcases the player’s name, date autograph request was sent, date the autograph request was returned, what was signed and how it was signed.

When possible, the autograph request is addressed to the player, in care of the team, and sent to the team’s offices.

For more information on athlete mailing addresses, e-mail bryjay41@hotmail.com.
