Been a long while since I did a show and tell or even wanted to make the effort to do it

But..

Lets start with St Louis Comic Con back in March.

Took Maddie to meet Nathan Fillion and get his auto and picture


While waiting I came upon this

Authenticated, reasonable priced..

Had to do it, even though there is damage to the cover!

then

came Cleveland Oh and the National.

I always look forward to the UD Diamond Club event. 9 hours of driving one way Saturday morning and 9 hours back sunday. Plus a night in the hotel for my son in law and I.. and for what..

Priceless Memories.

So the story.

Get to Cleveland a few hours before event

We went down to rock and roll HOF and it closes at 5:30 .. do what..

Rock and Roll all night.. The museum definitely does not share the true spirit of Rock and Roll! Wasn't paying $50 bucks for a half hour.. onto downtown..

About then I started to get text from Madison back in St Louis that a long lost friend was looking for me.. IN CLEVELAND.. laugh.gif

onto to the event

but and then..

The genie is still handing stuff out and shoves a bag in my hands.

In front of him I give the bag to some Little girl that was following him but he was ignoring.

(later that night I find out she pulled a Tiger woods auto from that bag.. and shaq gave her all the bowling money he won)

But and then then..

Im standing talking to chris carlin..

Oh but wait Im way ahead of myself here..

rewind to the 1st Y and michell wie..

So Im standing in the corner nursing my Y and admiring my Wie when.. a guy wearing a 264 army jersey appears in front of me..

I meet the son of Bob Depouw.. Brandon..

Hugs and kisses for my good friends son.. a toast another Y and more toasts and more Y's

Then about 1/2 hour later I meet Jason the president of UD and we have about a 20 minute spin on what is right with UD!

THEN..

I meet steven Laroche the new Hockey editor for beckett and blow another 1/2 hour spinning yarns with him.. great guy..

and whew..

back to the girl and the bag and chris carlin.. I look up and outside the roped are I see none other than Mr 264..

Hugs and kisses for my bud and a plea to the Carlin meister to let him join in.

Bob gets to meet Laroche and Jason and I needed more Y's

Party ended.. but Bob Brandon and I pick up Mike my son in law and we go way into the night!

Good times Ill remember forever!

That is Awesome!


My card collection has been put on hold, I pick up vintage cards from time to time, but overall I collect Music Memorabilia now. I am an avid Custom Print Guitar Pick collector now, so if you have any, let me know.
