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!
