View Full Version : Memorabilia pickups from the TriStar show!!

The annual TriStar show was this past weekend. I had a great time!

I was able to pick up some nice IP autos and some already signed stuff too.

The following were obtained IP:

Dan Runzler (FREE; TriStar Authentication)

John Bowker (FREE; TriStar Authentication)

Ozzie Smith ($60 on HOF Ball; TriStar Authentication)

Robin Yount ($90 on HOF Ball; TriStar Authentication)

Paul Molitor ($60 on HOF Bal; TriStar Authentication)

Rod Carew ($60 on HOF Ball; TriStar Authentication)

Cal Ripken Jr. ($150 on HOF Ball; TriStar Authentication)

Reggie Jackson ($100 on HOF Ball; TriStar Authentication)

Bruce Sutter ($40 on HOF Ball; TriStar Authentication)

Some notes...

Robin Yount, Paul Molitor, and Ozzie Smith were all very nice guys...very chatty and willing to pause and take a picture.

Reggie Jackson was NOT a very nice guy. He wanted to get out of there as soon as possible.

Cal Ripken Jr. was in a league of his own. He took as much time as he was allowed with each individual fan and really talked to everyone. He stopped for each and every person and stood up to take a posed photo. He's not only the nicest athlete I've ever met, but he's one of the nicest people I've ever met. It was an honor to meet him!

To be continued...

The following were purchased already autographed:

Chad Billingsley ($60 on Replica Jersey; PSA/DNA Authentication)

Chad Billingsley ($60 on Replica Jersey; PSA/DNA Authentication)

Ryan Braun ($35 on ROMLB; PSA/DNA Authentication)

Dave Winfield ($30 on ROMLB; PSA/DNA Authentication)

Josh Hamilton ($30 on ROMLB; PSA/DNA Authentication)

I always overpay for the IP autos, but I guess you pay to meet the player. I think I did pretty good on the non-IP autos tho. I know the guy who sold them to me, so I go a better deal than others might. I might be able to pick some up for any of you if interested. I know he has lots of other players too.

Awesome pickups man!
I am a Yankees fan and I have met Reggie. I agree, I really don't like the guy.

Man, thats some really sweet stuff there. Thanks for sharing, that was cool to look through all that.

Very cool stuff, I agree that it's worth paying a little more to meet the players in person--esp if they allow you to take a photo. Some great pickups there, I really need to get to one of these big shows someday!

$35 for a Braun PSA ball is amazing! I have been looking for a good price on him for a while and $60 is the best I have seen. Good work, sir!

Sweet show pickups... I was there too... but couldn't afford their autos. I especially like your Ozzie and Winfield autographs.
