Dear Mr. Dampier,
My name is "ABAsite", and I think that you were a great basketball player. I think it's awesome that you were a 7 time ABA all-star, one of 2 players to play all 9 ABA seasons with one ABA team, and had 8 seasons with over 15 ppg! It miust have been fun to be a part of something as cool as the ABA, it makes you a basketball pioneer in a way. You should be very proud of yourself.
I have enclosed a basketball card and it would really mean a lot to me if you would please autograph it. For your convenience, I have enclosed an SASE. Thank you very much for your time.
Dear Curt Schilling,
I am a huge fan of yours and would like to thank you for taking the time to read my letter. I am a huge Phillies fan and you have always been my favorite player in baseball. My favorite moments in your career were when I saw you pitch against the Cardinals in 1998 at the Vet and you tallied 13 strikeouts, and seeing you win your second world series last year for the Red Sox. Congratulations. If you have the time could you please sign the card that I have sent? It would make a great addition to my collection and I'd really appreciate it. Thanks again for your time and best of luck this season. Take Care.
Dear Mr. _____,
I'm a big fan of yours and enjoy watching you play. I remember you best when [insert memory here].
Please be kind enough to sign the enclosed card and mail it back to me. I would truly appreciate such a kind gesture considering your busy schedule.
Thank you for taking the time to read my letter. I wish you a great year.
Dear Mr. (last name),
I have been a baseball fan all of my life and an avid APBA game player for over forty years. In 1987, I started collecting APBA autographs through the mail, mostly of retired players. The response that I have received has been tremendous. I currently have over 2,600 different player cards, not to mention postcards, photos, baseball cards, letters and notes that either I included, or the player themselves were gracious enough to include.
Enclosed are your (year) season APBA game card and a (brand) baseball card, on which I would greatly appreciate your autograph. Also, I wrap my items in a sheet of writing paper, in case you have any questions or comments about my collection. I try my best to respect everyone’s privacy, so if you choose to not sign, I completely understand.
Though I have purchased items from places such as ebay, I guarantee, if within my power to prevent, that you will never see any of my collection for sale. A few years ago I was contacted by one of the writers from “Sports Collectors Digest” about doing an interview, not wanting the exposure, I respectfully declined.
My collection is very unique and I look forward to your response. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Hello! My name is __________ and I hope you are doing well today.
I think it is really cool that you collected seven RBI in a game not only once, but twice in your career. That is amazing!
Anyway, the main reason I am writing to you today is to request an autograph-would you please sign the enclosed card for me? I'll really appreciate it-it will truly mean a lot.
Thanks and good luck in all that you do!
