My favorite autographed pieces are the things that I got in person. What are yours and why?
My all-time favorite Autographed piece, although not the greatest athlete I have, but my favorite golfer, and Idol is a Sean O'hair 90th PGA championship hat. I got this autograph as he was going from the practice green to the driving range, he only had time to sign for a few people as he was contending early on in the Championship and most golfers don't sign at all until the end of the day. I followed him the whole weekend, thursday-sunday. Sean O'hair and his caddy are really fun people they interact with their fans which is what makes golfers such great athletes. I also had a lot of conversations with his Dad and wife who were there as well. I was super excited to get this autograph because he is the only person that I wanted as other people were around some of the bigger names.

Autograph number 2- I obtained this at a golf tournament in Arizona. It is a Phil Mickelson used glove he used during round 3 of the tournament and autographed it. Phil Mickelson is one of the nicest athletes out there and is fun to talk to.

along with that he also autographed a US open hat i have and an 8X10 and personalized it.

Personally autographed used gloves are one of my favorite pieces of memorabilia and are hard to get in person but are a nice collectible.. I have 2 others as well, loren roberts and Chris Dimarco

-kevin jones auto mini helmet lions and VT helmet
-Joey Harrington auto mini helmet
-Carolina Panthers team signed football (not the wh0
ole team) delholmme, foster, smith
-paula creamer signed golf ball (shes really cool too)
-Chad Campbell auto golf ball
-geoff oglivy auto golf ball
-Darren McCarty/Kris Draper signed detroit redwings hat (have 2) went to a local mall when they first opened and signed for a ton of people, i was one of the last people in line, it was when i was real young tho.

My favorite thing only signed by one person would be this:
http://i134.photobucket.com/albums/q99/Chosen1LBJ/Racing/hornishsplitter.jpg
Sam Hornish Jr. Race Used Splitter Signed, and inscribed "Go Bucks!" We're both big Buckeyes fan, and it was cool of him to put that on there (he's from Ohio).




My favorite piece of memorabilia in my collection though would be my NASCAR flag signed by different drivers. I've been working on it for 9 years now:

Dont have a digital camera so I can't post the pics but I would have to say Item wise is a Brian Dawkins Full sized helmet because his signature is cool. Experience was meeting Chuck Bednarik last weekend. He was telling stories the whole time he was signing. It was awesome.

I love these types of threads, it's cool to see everyone's favorite pieces and why they mean so much to them. My favorite pieces have to do with the 1988 World Series. We had season tickets growing up and I was lucky enough to be in attendance at Game 1 when Gibson hit his historical home run. That Dodgers team was a motley group of guys, but they rode Gibson's grit and Hershiser's arm all the way to a world series victory. So here are some of my favorites from that Dodgers' team:

The newest piece, a photo and bat signed by Kirk Gibson that my wife had framed up with my ticket from the game

Gibson and Hershiser did a signing in LA a few years ago, and I was lucky enough to attend and pick up this piece

1988 World Series Ball signed by Gibson and Eckersley

Orel Hershiser ball inscribed "88 NL CY / WS MVP"

Fedotenko, Ruslan
Godard, Eric
Kennedy, Tyler

Vegas, lol, I don't think that's going anywhere any time soon. I saw a Steve Young/Bugs Bunny one just like that on EBAY and was sniped at the last minute and have never seen one again.

I framed and matted it when I got it, the picture doesn't do it justice at all either.

Loved the Yankees for over a decade now and even though I only saw one game in the old yankee stadium, it was such a surreal and incredible experience that I HAD to pick this up when steiner offered them last year.

This flag I bought on ebay back in 2008 because I was stationed in Beijing that year and had the opportunity of a lifetime to see the games live. I went to several USA baseball games and had about 15 of the players sign this flag. Although the picture here is not the signed one (its at home and I didnt get a chance to take a pic) I know dexter fowler and Stephen Strasburg signed it!!!
AWESOME!
