I'll try to update this every weekday I can, so if I miss a day don't come after me. wink.gif
I'll give a little story behind the autograph too, even if it's dumb, at least you'll get a little insight into my experiences.

Let's start it out right - my favorite in-person autograph: WILL CLARK!

user posted image

If you don't know the story - Will Clark's my favorite player. Back when he was on the Orioles (I think it was 1998) they came to Philly for an interleague game. Will was standing in right field during BP, I went over to the corner and called to him, he turned and waved. Thinking that was already beyond cool, once BP was over Will came over to me! He asked my name, shook my hand, signed this card and told me to enjoy the game, then went straight to the dugout, didn't sign for anyone else. I don't even remember what I said, I think I blubbered like a schoolgirl biggrin.gif. He didn't start the game, but came in late and hit a home run!!
Out of all the memories I have of Veteran's Stadium, this one will always be at the top.

Oh, and all the subsequent pics won't be this big, Will just deserves it. smile.gif

Cool story!

I wish I could have been there when my brother met Nolan Ryan when Ryan was on the Astros. He got to go into the locker room and got a baseball signed by Ryan and almost the whole team! My brother has since given the ball to me, which is cool smile.gif
