I would think, in your market, the football schedule would be more widely appreciated, Will.  Go Broncos... except when they play the Hawks, of course.

It depends.  On the market.  On the sender.  And the recipient.  

If I sent out a baseball schedule...I'm sure I would receive a call if anyone who knows me found one in their mailbox.   Huh?   Who are you, anyway?--- might be a common question...I imagine.   

So for me -- never have...likely never will.

They do in Dunedin FL.

However, the schedule to make available here is for the Spring Training Season. 8 Major league teams are in the area including NYY in Tampa and Toronto Blue Jays in Dunedin.

Those snowbirds always want to watch the Yankees play and they DO NOT HAVE A REAL ESTATE AGENT here.

I like the Football ones.  I think it's more about putting your name out there so when you call or door knock they already are familiar with your name, rather than getting leads directly from the piece.

I send them out.  It's just a touch piece and won't give immediate response very often but does reming people of what you do for a living.  You only need to sell one home from them and they will be paid for for a generation.
