View Full Version : Two AS ROMLB - who might sign them?

I purchased a few All Star balls from this year's game. One's already gone to Joey Votto and another to Brandon Phillips. Hope both come through for me since it would be cool to have a signed ball from their first AS game.

I have two left and was trying to decide who to send to. I was originally thinking of sending to Longoria, Price or Josh Johnson, but not sure if I'd ever get anything back from any of them.

What do you guys think??

Andrew Bailey is a GREAT signer. He would be one I would send out to.

I actually sent him a ball earlier this year and he did respond. He does seem like a great guy that responds to most of his fans.

I think I saw something about this somewhere else. How much is it for him to sign a ball? Do I just send to the stadium?

If it's a guaranteed success it might be worth it.

Here is the information on Cabrera it seems he only signs cards and photos, no ROMLB's.

Andrew Bailey is a good signer, the rest of the All-Stars are hit or miss or miss altogether. I have seen a few successes from Rivera and Pettitte, not a for sure thing though.

I think Rivera and Pettitte are good bets since you have Bailey. I sent to Johnson and Price during ST and nothing, so don't bother. Have you thought about...

Josh Hamilton
Neftali Feliz
Ty Wigginton
Elvis Andrus
Andre Ethier
Heath Bell
Yovani Gallardo

All are decent signers in my book.

I figured Price was a long shot, but was hoping maybe there was some success with Johnson. I was thinking of Rivera as one and already sent something a week ago to Pettitte.

Thanks for the other ideas. I'll have to decide and just cross my fingers!

Johnson usually signs and sends back his mail in Nov/Dec, similar to Josh Hamilton

Johnson is usually pretty good, just takes a little while as he signs all of his mail at once. I sent to him last july and got back from him in january

I've decided one is going to Johnson. I'll be dropping that ball in the mail today.

Now for the other one...

I'd go with Hamilton, guarenteed to come back around Xmas time.

Haven't gotten anything back yet. They just hit the road so hopefully I'll see something soon once they're back in town.
