Today's update is Bulls Backup Point Guard and member of the Bench Mob, CJ Watson.

Much to his credit he showed up only 10 minutes later after finishing another event that was about an hour away and we had quite the rain storm tonight.

I was maybe 15 or so people back in a line that grew to maybe 75. I guess there was over 150 people at the earlier signing in the city.

I am also posting pics of a seat base from a stadium seat that I bought this week. Found it on Craigslist and after half a day of trading phone calls and me not budging on my initial offer he called me and told me to come get it. As you can see, it is from the original Chicago Stadium.

My buddy is hosting another Bobby Hull private signing in 2 weeks so I think I am going to have him sign it. I got about 5-6 Bobby Hull items since my last update but since I wasn't present I didn't include them in an IP update. I do have pics of him signing each item though.

Here are the CJ pics, and the stadium seat.

Today's update is former Blackhawks Goaltender and new Hall of Fame inductee, Ed Belfour. Growing up he was known as Eddie in Chicago but I guess he goes by Ed now. Why so serious? lol

He showed up a few minutes early which is always good. It was pretty crowded, they solve over 300 tickets and this was a smaller card shop.

He was friendly and allowed posed photos as long as you didn't have him standing then sitting every other person.

At the bottom are some photos of some items I had Bobby Hull sign a week or two ago. I guess it pays off that my best friend is buddies with his agent eh?

Tonight's update is one I have been wanting for quite some time. I originally wasn't going to go to this signing as it was a paid event and I know he has a free signing coming up in May. But I also just found out I am going to be preoccupied that day in May so I coughed up the $40 to meet him tonight.

Kerry Wood is the nicest Cubs player I have ever met. I can't say enough on how friendly he is and all smiles. He went out of the way to get down on his knees to pose for a photo with an older gentleman who was in line in front of me who was in a wheel chair. He made sure to shake my hand and thank me for coming.

My wife actually made fun of me because I kept talking about it when I got home.

I had him sign my Cubs board. It brings the total right now to 40 Signatures. I hope to meet Fergie Jenkins tomorrow and I have a few items for him to sign.

This is a nice update. Not necessarily because of who the player is but because of how many items. I actually had more at home but didn't think I needed to bring that many.

Fergie Jenkins was signing at a local Meijer store. Another cooking demonstration followed by an autograph session. They were allowing 2 items per person but quite a few people only had 1 item so they were willing to get one of my additional items signed for me. I ended up with 5 total items. I didn't get a pic of 2 of the items being signed but I can live with that.

Thursday night was the first Blackhawks playoff game. Former goalie Murray Bannerman was going to be watching the game with fans at a bar about 10 minutes from my house. I went over and watched the 1st period there.

There was only about 30 total people in the bar and maybe 5 or so there to get autographs. I wish I had more to bring because I could have had him sign anything. I didn't take pics of him signing my items due to being so casual and just sitting at the bar. I did however ask him to take a photo with me.

I missed a free Jim McMahon signing yesterday as I had to attend a wedding. Oh well I still had fun at the wedding smile.gif

Bobby Hull was doing a free signing today. First item was free anything after that you had to pay for. It is very rare that he does free signings anymore so I made sure to go. I got there and was maybe 100 people back in line. I arrived a good hour or so after it had started.

With the 100 people in front of me I was there for 3.5 hours as Bobby is always very friendly and speaks to each person likes he has known them for 50 years.

I got a 11x14 signed and I asked him to do his full name just so that is has a little something different to it.
