I guess you can say I am lucky living in the Chicagoland area. We are blessed with many great athletes and with teams/stores that host public signings. The Chicago Bears and the Chicago Blackhawks are the best for this.

So with that being said I thought I would start a thread and chronicle my IP autograph collecting. I usually get at least 1 a week, sometime more.

I will update this as I obtain the autographs (will only be IP auto's). My first update will be from this past weekend when I met Brent Seabrook.

Please keep coming back to check the thread as I add because there are many players still scheduled to meet this month.

So far this month I am scheduled to meet the following athletes in person as well:

Derrick Rose 3/13
Mike Singletary 3/12
Jim McMahon 3/12
Mike Vick 3/12
DJ Moore 3/12
Yale lary 3/12
Phil Regan 3/12
Sam bradford 3/13
Charlie Joiner 3/13
Roger Wehrli 3/13
Bob Love 3/26
Tomas Kopecky 3/15
Mike Hardenstien 3/26
Bob Avellini 3/26
Kurt Becker 3/19
McDonald's All-America Game 3/30 (i am working the event registering the players)

Now for the pics of the additions!

Went to a signing today that I forgot to list previously. Got Kevin Butler from the '85 Bears. I have met him before and as usual he was super nice. I ended up getting 5 things signed! 4 items for me and 1 item for a charity raffle that my friend does for Make a Wish foundation.

A cool side note to this signed was who I happened to see standing around. None of than Ted Hendricks. His wife runs these events with Miller Lite all the time with various 1985 bears. She is super sweet and always makes sure people get their autographs. However this was the first time I had seen Ted at any of the events. No one else recognized him. I mentioned to the older man in line with me that I thought that was Ted Hendricks and he walked up to him and said "hey no one recognized you except that guy over there" and he pointed to me. I nodded at Mr. Hendricks and he smiled back and then wandered off not to be seen for the remainder of the signing. It was clear her was there to visit his wife and not to be bothered. I just thought that was too cool not to share.

Pics are below.

Anyone interested in this thread? Doesn't seem to get a lot of replies.

Time for another update! This will be a bit of a longer one. I went to the Mounted Memories convention today and met a few athletes and picked up some items via wheeling and dealing.

The convention continues tomorrow so I will be adding another post with more pics. My prize of the convention will be signed tomorrow so I can't wait to share that.

Thank you. It is one of my most prized pieces. 17 signatures and counting. Still have 3 more scheduled to sign it this month alone!

Very sad and upset I missed getting Dave Duerson due to Brent Seabrook's line running late last October.

I really am hoping to make it. And might be meeting a online friend there as well, that I have never meet. But its all going to depend on if I have the money. Its not just the money to get in or buy things, but have to pay for gas, food, if we do a hotel (so I could go the next day), and others. But it is on my list. So can hope for the best. smile.gif cool.gif

Another update. Met Tomas Kopecky last night. Very nice guy. Had him sign a copy of the "One Goal Achieved" book which is about last years championship run. That brings the total signatures on the book to 5.

These were taken with my cell phone so not the best quality.
