Just got permission from the wife to attend the National Convention this year being held in Baltimore.  No names are posted yet as to who will be there, but I am gearing up to design a new custom 8x10 for it and hopefully get a lot of signatures during it.  Nothing in the mail so far this week.  Way too early for any of my spring training mailouts to come back.  Still waiting on any answer back from William "The Refrigerator" Perry and Brian Urlacher (I sent them both mini...

1/20/12 Update

Not much really happening in the TTM or IP world today.  Over the weekend I decided to send my Cubs Spring Training collection, hopefully none get kicked back because they are too early.  I sent to everyone on the Cubs 40 man roster and hope to get about a 50% return rate.  I am still trying to get the ever elusive Starlin Castro for my collection.  I hope to get all of the new-comers and another hard to get autograph from Geo.  I did get some mail this morning, unluc...

Because I have moved into the DC area, I have decided to widen my autograph collecting habits.  So I forked out the money for the 2012 Orioles FanFest and purchased tickets for the following people (still trying to obtain former Cubs players for my collection):

Zach Britton, Ryan Flaherty (ex-Cub for my collection), Tommy Hunter, Oliver Drake, Dana Eveland, Jim Palmer, JJ Hardy, Jai Miller, Troy Patton, Taylor Teagarden

I am hoping that I will be able to trade some of these f...

I found out that Cal Ripken Jr. was going to be at a Microsoft Store opening in Tyson's Corner, VA.  I was first in line to play Kinect Baseball against him and obtain an autograph.  I haven't scanned in the autograph yet, but will do that this weekend. Mr Ripken is a great guy and by the way, he struck me out on 3 pitches!!!!  We were both sweating our butts of, imagine, he still had another 199 people to play against.  Pictures of ticket and a man who was behind me ...
