Well I was frustrated with the way the Texans game started off tonight so I took a break to go get some Timberwolves autographs before the game.
JJ Barea: 2/2, 16x20s
Knocked out 2 more 16x20s. I had intended to try getting all 4 signed but he was dropped off so I only got 2 done. Turned out great. And may I say JJ Barea may be the best dressed man in the NBA. He was looking sharp tonight! :)
I am contemplating getting some 16x20s of him when I am not so tight on money. He is always willing to sign
Surprised he stopped to sign because there were 2 other guys waiting with me and 1 of them was there with me this morning
Kirilenko once again stopped to sign and gave me his full signature without asking. Every story I hear about him makes me like him more and more. He is such an awesome guy always willing to stop and sign autographs
I was pleasantly surprised when he stopped to sign. I saw a Timberwolves reporter tweet today that Stiemsma was happy the PA announcer would be announcing Packers-Vikings updates during the Wolves game because he is a Packers fan. So after he signed I said go Packers and he smiled and laughed and said Yeah and then said Don't say that too loud hahaha. I don't care who wins but I was just trying to build some rapport with him
Yesterday brought 3 TTM returns. I was too busy yesterday to post. Unfortunately no returns came today.
Ryan Tatusko: 2/2 c/o home
Out: 11/16 In: 1/7
I like this return because I arrived back from the holidays to a letter from his mom apologizing for it taking so long. She said he was in Puerto Rico at winter ball and she was going to have him sign them when he was home for Christmas. She wanted to reassure me they weren't lost and felt bad it took so long. It was a kind gesture I appreciated. I follow him on Twitter and knew he was away at winter ball so I knew if I was going to get a return it was going to be a bit of a wait but it wasn't bad at all.
Out: 10/12 In: 1/7
I had heard he had stopped signing TTM but took a shot in the dark. I was ecstatic to open this and pull out this amazing photo. I was not alive during his presidency, but as someone who rigorously studies the history and current events of the Middle East I truly admire all of the great work he has done. Plus I'm a strong Democrat so I'm a fan. Fun fact: He visited Fulton, IL where my mom grew up when he was president and he kissed my mom on the cheek!
Out: 12/20 In: 1/7
Found his home address and sent this card to him. I have long had my eye on getting this dual Texas Longhorns card signed by both Suttle and Cat Osterman. Glad to get him. I will be sending more cards his way now that I know the address I found is a working address
Tonight was another night of graphing the hometown Timberwolves. As usual I graphed them outside driving into the arena and again inside during warmups.
JJ Barea: 2/2 16x20s
I knocked out the last 2 16x20s I had of Barea. He saw them and he was like "whoa these are big ones." Held back laughing seeing as he signed 4 for me on Saturday ha! I told him I was excited to see him sign up with egraphs and I would have to get one soon. He smiled and said "yeah they just called me the other day." Personally I think egraphs is the dumbest new fad in this hobby but thought I'd let him know I pay attention to his tweets haha. And I honestly will probably get one from him just for that personalized voice message that comes with. That man's voice makes me melt haha
Special thanks to Autofreak2842 for getting the cards signed!
Again thanks Autofreak for getting 2 cards signed
Always an extremely nice guy always willing to sign
Thanks Autofreak for getting the white background photo signed
1 of the top 10 nicest guys in the NBA. Anyone who plans on graphing the Wolves should definitely get stuff for Kirilenko!
Ricky Rubio: 1/1
Team Sheet: Added Coach Bill Bayno and Alexey Shved
As always, phenomenal Wolves stuff! I think that Suttle/Osterman will look sweet. Also, that basketball by Kirlenko is such a sweet autograph to add to any collection.
Thanks!! It is a great story and I hope he is able to make the Orioles roster!
Today brought an unbelievable TTM return from a future star.
Sydney Leroux: 1/1
Out: 10/12 In: 1/9
I really think Leroux is going to become a star for the USWNT. She is my 3rd favorite player on the team with #1 being Hope Solo and #2 being Carli Lloyd. I love watching her play and I'm so excited to get a return from her! I will definitely send to her again in the near future!
And it is complete BS nobody made the Baseball Hall of Fame today. Jeff Bagwell and Craig Biggio should've gotten in. The BBWAA is a disgrace!
I agree! Biggio is my fav' MLB player in history. I have hundreds of cards of him. And may I say u have a nice collection yourself.
