Well I went on an autograph run last night. Wizards were in town against the Nets. I didn't really want to but I decided to go with my friend. I came away with:

Maurice Evans 1/1
Jordan Crawford on photo paper (I have a feeling this guy could be a star)
Wall on "#1 Draft Pick" 8x10
Nene 8x10
Sam Cassell 1/1 (Remembered to bring stuff this time!)

Wizards are one of those teams you aren't gonna have a lot of things for. I only brought 8 cards with me, which is so unheard of for me. Half the roster is players that have no more than 1 year of experience. Since Rashard Lewis and Blatche didn't make the trip again, there isn't a whole lot to go for. Thanks for reading.

Well my friend and I hit up the Cavs after the Nets game couple days ago. Didn't go too well for me.

Anthony Parker 1/2
Omri Casspi 1/2
Lester Hudson 1/1

The big bummer was Kyrie Irving didn't travel. It was a little crowded. Unfortunately I didn't have things for bunch of players, such as Alonzo Gee and Tristan Thompson. I was hoping to get a photo and the UNC piece signed by Jamison but he didn't sign for too many. Byron Scott, Varejao and Walton didn't sign. Some other coaches I couldn't recognize. Couple things could be coming up over the weekend.

Well yesterday I went into the city. Heat were playing the Knicks and Angels were finishing a series up with the Yankees. I ran into a problem in the morning. When I was in Times Square, I got a text from one of my buddies. He was told the Heat were staying in New Jersey. After all, the Heat were playing the Nets the next day, but I didn't even think of that. So now I could cross the Heat off the list. Couple hours later, it was time for the Angels. I did good with them. I got:

Chris Iannetta 2/2
Vernon Wells 1/1 8x10 (This guy is a class act)
Coach Alfredo Griffin 1/2
Erick Aybar 2/2
Torii Hunter 1/2 (I was the last one he signed for)
Mark Trumbo 1/1
Peter Bourjos 1/2
C.J. Wilson 1/1
Isringhausen 1/1 photo paper (I actually forgot my 8x10, but now I can get him on a better image)

I missed Scott Downs and Jerome Williams. I was close on Scioscia. Haren, Weaver, Izturis, Kendrick, Morales and Abreu didn't sign. Oh yeah, Pujols didn't sign either. I'll have to see if I hit anything up this week. But next Weds I'm aiming for the Clippers and Marlins. Thanks for reading.

Thanks.

Last night I went to the Nets/Sixers game, the final Nets game in New Jersey. It was kind of lousy. Nice halftime ceremony but that's about it. Too bad the Nets lost. I found out there was an event before and after the game for the season ticket holders, the former players before and current team after. During shootaround I went over to the Nets side. I've never seen anything like this, there was barely anyone out there for shootaround. Only 2 or 3 for the Sixers (my friend got Iguodala and Thaddeus Young). For the Nets there was only Jordan Williams, Humphries and MarShon. All I got was:

Jordan Williams - added to Nets 8x10
Also got Coach Mario Elie on 2 cards

I was disappointed that none of the former Nets in attendance were around for shootaround. Some players honored at the half were Darryl Dawkins, Michael Ray Richardson, Kenny Anderson, Derrick Coleman, Otis Birdsong and Kerry Kittles. After the game I checked out the Sixers side outside but they were going out a different way this time. So went over to the Nets side. Apparently I missed some of the formers like Chris Morris and Richardson, who boarded a bus. My friend actually spotted Malik Rose coming out of the employee's exit. He is part of the Sixers broadcasting team. So all I got after was:

Rose 2/2
MarShon Brooks (finally) on Nets 8x10

Guy barely signed but I'm glad I finally got him. I heard from a few of the STH's complaining about how unorganized the event after was. That's what I hate about the Nets, they are very poor when it comes to planning things and with promotions. All we got for the final home game ever is a patch and poster. It was for the first 10,000 fans but we ended up getting them after the game. I understand the Nets had a private signing after the game and may not feel like signing anymore, but the for the final game in New Jersey, you should do extra for that particular day for all the fans. The guys are bad signers after games to begin with, so at least stop for us on this special day. And for the former players, they should've had some public event outside for them. Pair some guys at tables and have some small type of fanfest. I'm done with my little rant. I was just expecting a little more. Wish me luck with tomorrow, I will be heading into the city for the Marlins and Clippers. Thanks for reading.

Today I hit up the Marlins and Clippers in the city. The day started out horribly but got much better. I started out with the Marlins. I printed out something for the first season of the Miami Marlins, I mean I expected to get a bunch of the basic players. But I forgot that the location could be a killer, and this is the only place that's hated. Like the other time I went, I only got ONE person. Chad Gaudin. Got him on the 8x10 and a card. Ozzie didn't sign for me and I missed Morrison and Greg Dobbs. Zambrano, Anibal Sanchez, Hanley, Bonifacio, Josh Johnson and Austin Kearns didn't sign. These guys have really gotten bad over the past couple years. I also missed Buehrle, I was in a different spot and this guy got him. We couldn't stay for the final half hour/hour because we had to run off to our next destination, the Clippers. As you may have found out from me, a few teams may have their own little quirks regarding autographs (sometimes specifically for hotels). For the Clippers currently, their security guy is very strict about them not signing in blue sharpie. But that's only when the guy is around. Unfortunately because of that fool, I got the big one in black. But you can see it.

Bobby Simmons 2/2
Reggie Evans 2/2
Caron Butler 1/2
Blake Griffin 8x10
Foye 1/2
Broadcaster Michael Smith 2/2
Nick Young 2/2
Asst coach Robert Pack 1/2
Kenyon Martin on my Nets poster giveaway from the other night

I really like that Blake signed for everyone. Coach Vinny Del Negro doesn't sign apparently. Mo Williams only signed for one and Chris Paul didn't sign too many. I missed Eric Bledsoe and I don't think DeAndre Jordan signed. I was disappointed again in how the Marlins were. But I am so glad with how things turned out with the Clippers, that really turned my day around. I'll have to see what I do next. Playoff stuff with the Devils/Rangers/Knicks is a little possible and there's the NFL Draft but I really doubt it. Thanks for reading.

Ok guys last night I went into the city, here's what was going on:

Rays vs Yankees
Macy Gray and Jim Parsons (Sheldon from Big Bang Theory) on Letterman
Michael Phelps on Fallon

Also a team I help coach had a game at 7:30 so I hoped everything went perfectly, timing was everything. So first off were the Rays. I got:

Cesar Ramos 1/1
Elliot Johnson 1/1
Coach Tom Foley 2/2
Joel Peralta 2/2
Fernando Rodney 1/2
Jeff Niemann 1/1
Wade Davis 1/1
Joe Maddon 1/1 photo paper
Jeff Keppinger 1/1
Carlos Pena 2/2, card and photo paper
Sean Rodriguez 1/1 Cuban flag 8x10
Broadcaster Brian Anderson 2/2
Ben Zobrist 1/1

This was the good. Now for the bad.

First off, there's this old grapher. He's one of the legends here. But everyone prefers for him not be there because he just gets in the way and ruins things. Luckily I don't see him for basketball. First off, Matt Moore is signing. Then he starts saying over and over things like, "Can you please sign for me?" This makes Moore rush into the cab. Later on we see Hellickson signing before boarding the bus, taking his time. Then Sheldon does his thing and poof, Hellickson is gone. No offense but thank God he wasn't there the whole time. Also, who I think is Moore is boarding the bus. I try to get him on a photo paper but he says I'm very sorry but I don't sign those. I try to say that I'm going to print a photo but I appreciate how he was expressing how he was sorry. I've never seen anyone that sincere. BUT turns out it was Matt Joyce blink.gif I had 2 cards of him too. I had another photo paper fail, unfortunately with ace David Price. I should've had a card out with the paper too like I did with Pena later. He just said I don't sign those and walked on his way and ignored me when I tried calling him. I mean c'mon...

Players who didn't sign: Upton and Jose Molina. James Shields signed for one. We missed coach Dave Martinez by a second. Maybe half. No sign of Longoria. After getting Brian Anderson and Zobrist, I went off to Letterman. I was there for 2 hours...Normally guests should arrive around 3. Well Parsons arrived at around 4! He signed for everyone there but I wasn't able to get a pic with him. So for after I was hoping to get pics with Macy Gray and Parsons. I was expecting them to leave by 5:15 hopefully and then I'd be on my way for Michael Phelps. It was 6pm and still those 2 didn't come out. So at around 6:10 I decided to leave and check out Fallon. I was there for a minute because I had to goto my baseball game. I got one of my buddies to get Phelps on a blank for me if he signed. By the time I'm at Port Authority I find out my game was rained out! mad.gif Also found out Phelps didn't sign.

Great day with the Rays. But unhappy with some of the things, like Price. That waste of time at Letterman slightly lowered how I felt about my day overall. But hey I got 17 autos, tying my baseball high for a day. I might go for the Mariners at the end of the week and maybe the Capitals if they can force a game 7. Thanks for reading. Also remember the Isringhausen blank I got signed a few weeks ago? I will also post a pic of it, I finally printed it out.

Been a little busy over the weekend so I'm late with this. Friday night I hit up the Devils after their playoff win. It was great being there. I'm just glad Henrique scored minutes into overtime, not having us wait much longer. Thing's weren't looking good at first but it picked up. Here's how I did:

To the Devils 8x10, I added: Anton Volchenkov, Andy Greene, Alexei Ponikarovsky, Mark Fayne and Stephen Gionta
David Clarkson 1/1

Missed Can Janssen, just wasn't sure who it was at first.

Will hit up the Devils/Kings at least once this week, can't wait.

Decided to hit up the Mets this afternoon at Citi. My special ball came in Friday or Saturday so I was all set. I brought Phillies stuff too but I was gonna focus on the Mets for today. Today was very successful.

1st base coach Tom Goodwin 2/2 (Very nice guy, looking forward to seeing him next time)
Added Jon Rauch, Daniel Murphy, JOHAN SANTANA (the autograph of the day), Ramon Ramirez, Chris Schwinden, Rob Johnson, Vinny Rottino, Kirk Nieuwenhuis, Mike Nickeas, Mike Baxter, Scott Hairston, Dillon Gee, Tim Byrdak and Jack Egbert to the ball.
I also had Schwinden sign my Mets 8x10 from last year, he was a September call-up.
Chad Qualls (Phillies) 2/2

On the Mets photo, Schwinden signed it right above the script. Ronny Cedeno only signed for a few people and walked away, which I heard is his signature thing. And maybe one day I can finally get R.A. Dickey...
Last time, I tied my baseball record for most autos in a session with 17. Today I finally broke it with 19. But I know I will not put up similar numbers on my next baseball one. Tomorrow is Game 1 of the Stanley Cup so I might do the Devils/Kings after the game. Thanks for reading.

Last night my friend and I hit up after the Devils/Kings game last night. Tough OT loss for the Devils. We checked out the Kings side first. I guess for the Cup, they blocked off the visitors exit a bit. The players walkway was all covered up. They were still accessible in the lot but it would be tougher, we're like 20-30 feet away from them. 15 minutes passed. We saw maybe 5 players but no one came over. We decided to go over to the Devils. Soon afterwards I decided to check out the front because they were shooting the post-game show and some people I heard there were the great Barry Melrose and ex-goalie Kevin Weekes. After finding out it would end at 1am, I went back to the Devils. By this time it's around midnight. Ryan Carter, Ponikarovsky and Gionta signed but I had nothing for them. I did get a pic with Gionta. Things finished around 12:45 so we go back to the set. We're waiting for the show to end. There's maybe 5 of us by this time. Around 1am, we finally spot Barry Melrose on the other side. We went over there but didn't wanna bother him right away, just wanted to see if the show would end soon. After a little bit, he signed for us and took pics. He signed some photo paper for me and I had him put "Most interesting man in the world." If any of you are regular SportsCenter viewers, you will love that. I was worried though because, well, you already know the problems with getting a blank signed. He signed it a little too big and the placement was bad for once. I know it's not a big deal but I'm not crazy about it being over his face. By the time it's 1:20, show is still going. We didn't feel like waiting for Weekes anymore so we left.

It was kind of a waste of a night but I'm glad I came away with something, especially Barry Melrose. I'm unsure about going Saturday, but we'll see. One thing, can you guys please reply to this post. I need some input, it would be really appreciated. Now something odd happened when I printed this. For some reason it printed out as 8x9.75 instead of 8x10. First time I've seen this happen. With the white borders it is 8.5 x about 10.25. Should I trim off the top border or leave both? Just not sure what I should do. Thanks for reading.

Well my friend and I went back last night for Game 2. Devils lost again in OT, it's not looking good. Not much of an entry here. Kings couldn't sign because of the screening process, since they're heading straight back to LA. But it's not like they would've. Went to check out the Devils. Some signed, but unfortunately no one new to me. Ponikarovsky, Clarkson, Gionta, Carter and Greene were the only ones.

Andy Greene 1/1

I heard Doug Weight was there too along with Weekes but didn't feel like waiting all that time at the set. If the Devils do force a Game 5 at least, we'll have to try for everyone earlier in the day if we can. We'll have to see. Thanks for reading.

Hey guys, watched the Devils game at a bar last night with some friends and then we rushed over to Prudential afterwards. Devils stayed alive, winning 2-1. I don't have anything left for guys that usually sign so I decided to do what my friend does sometimes, get newspaper pics signed. Only had one recent paper around, but it worked out.

Stephen Gionta 1/1 newspaper
Marek Zidlicky 1/1 Devils 8x10
David Clarkson 1/1 newspaper

Biggest crowd I ever seen, at least 100. Guy's were mostly signing in black and couldn't catch their attention. Saw Brian Gionta but he didn't come over. We also saw Barry Melrose and Steve Levy walk by and get heavily booed. Glad at least I added a new one to the photo. This week I'll have to see what's going on. I might goto a minor league game Thursday and may hit up the Reds Friday. Thanks for reading.

Thanks Silly. Cool Jones, sometimes I wish they stayed there too. But the big advantage is you can get opposing teams outside.

Tomorrow I will be heading into NYC for autos. Seems like forever since I've hit up a team. I will be going for the Reds. Right after that, I will run to a signing. The best part is he is someone for my Hornets inaugural season 8x10. I will leave the name a surprise but feel free to guess. Can't wait to see him. After that I may try for Adam Sandler. He will be on Fallon so let's see what happens. Wish me luck.

Well today was great for the Reds. Btw, that mystery Hornet was the great Muggsy Bogues! I was excited to meet him again. So here's how I did with Cincinnati first.

Aroldis Chapman 8x10 (Saw him just standing around when I got there)
Ryan Ludwick 1/2 (If anyone wants a picture with him, he's not really a photo person. Wouldn't even take one with some girl)
Wilson Valdez 1/1
Miguel Cairo 2/2 (His little boy was with him. Nice kid)
Votto 8x10
Bruce 8x10
Bailey 1/2
Sean Marshall 1/1 (Advertising panel)
Cueto 8x10
Broadcaster Jeff Brantley 1/2
Ryan Hanigan 1/1

Pretty good day, eh? 4 8x10's signed. That's only happened to me one other time if I'm not mistaken. And that was the very first time I started getting photos signed oddly enough. One thing, about the Sean Marshall. That's an advertising panel found in 2008 Topps Heritage. I think they were found in every 1 or 2 hobby boxes. Should I trim those into individual cards? Would definitely be easier to store. Next is Muggsy's appearance. It was very nice. Played some basketball too afterwards. Too bad Muggsy didn't have time to play with us. Muggsy was great with everyone, I got my Hornets 8x10 signed and 4 cards. He tried to guess the other autos. Wish I had more time to talk, sometimes you just forget what you wanna say.

Monday I may go for the Braves and/or Orioles and maybe a couple other things, wrestler CM Punk for example. Thanks for reading.

Well I was in NYC this afternoon. There was too much going on and things didn't go as I hoped. Braves and Orioles were in town today so I wanted to attempt to do both. Also today some former Mets were doing a signing at SNY Studio from 10-2pm; Keith Hernandez, Edgardo Alfonzo and Koosman. I didn't know much about it until later so I didn't wanna bother because I'd be doing whatever team at the time. I would've been better off going because things with the Braves were horrible. There were more people than usual. Shortly after I got there, we saw manager Fredi Gonzalez (of course I didn't think I'd need the Cuba flag 8x10 and I forgot about him). After that, there was a period of around 90 minutes when nobody came (very unusual). Some players didn't wanna sign. All I got was:

Hinske 2/2
Uggla 8x10 (Thank God for him)

Freeman, Matt Diaz, Heyward, Francisco?, Roger McDowell, and couple others didn't sign. Chipper only signed 1 or 2, it was pretty bad how he was mobbed. Kimbrel barely signed and I was one of few that Tim Hudson didn't sign for. I was very disappointed in not getting Hudson, I really loved him back in Oakland. After not getting Kimbrel and Hudson, I just felt I should leave and go for Baltimore. I was a little late but I was better off.

Mark Reynolds 1/2
Brian Roberts 8x10
Adam Jones 1/1

Matusz and Markakis didn't sign. Couple others signed. Was hoping to see HOFer Jim Palmer but don't think he was there.

I wasn't happy about quantity today but was happy about the quality. Friday I am thinking about going to Citi Field. Focusing on the Mets and see if I get any Yankees. Thanks for reading.

Did the Mets and Yankees today, did very good. Would've done better if it wasn't for the period of heavy rain.

Tom Goodwin 1/1
Tim Teufel '86 Mets 8x10
Jon Rauch 2/2
Omar Quintanilla to team ball
Daniel Murphy 1/1
Bobby Parnell to team ball
Dillon Gee mini-helmet (I have to make sure I tell them where to sign in the future. First time getting one signed, good value in these)
Lucas Duda to team ball

Now for the Yankees:

Granderson 8x10
Jayson Nix 1/1

The rain started to come down with Nix. Flash forward 30-45 minutes later...I would say a minute or 2 after it 100% cleared...

Cano 1/1

And then later on got Al Leiter on a mini-helmet.

This was my first opportunity at getting Chris Young but he couldn't sign for everyone. Hope I can get him next time. Some guys like Dickey, Turner, Cedeno and Wright didn't sign. Looks like next up is Monday. Indians arrive and top draft pick Anthony Davis will be on Fallon. Thanks for reading.
