Finally got to meet some of you guys at Granite Run on Saturday. Nice job with the collection of items for Jeff Bauman, and getting the card signed by many of the athletes there too. I only got stuff from Ricky Watters and Bryce Brown, but it seemed like Charlie Garner had a pretty good line when I walked past.
I believe it was Ryan I spent a bunch of time talking with in First & Goal following all the signers. See you guys again at the Phillies Phestival.

I hope you guys made out great with the Jeff Bauman stuff. Sorry I couldn't make it to pitch in a hand.
Hey, I figured I'd start a Philly Ink ttm thread in the Successes section for Philly Ink guys. Just another way to help us along with the collection.

I collect Red Sox, Bears, Penguins, Celtics, Brian Urlacher, Sidney Crosby and Mario Lemieux cards. Need 1959 Topps Baseball cards for a set (early stages). If you have a large Photobucket, please list what you have from my wants.
My cards come from smoke free environment, so please be upfront if your cards are not. Also if your cards are creased or bent, be honest about it.

I got him in spring training 2011 and he was tough. I was the only one watching Jose contreras throw a bullpen session to ruiz. When it was over I called them both over. Contreras signed the photo (the photo was of contreras and ruiz together). Contreras looks at Ruiz, who doesn't sign. Contreras starts to hand the photo back to me. I say "Mr. Ruiz, can you sign too?"
He hesitated then took the marker and signed it. IDK why the guy is so tough. He's just a step above scrub status, and a PED using one at that.
SI cover went to his head.

I had him one on one in Spring Training 2012 in Sarasota. He walked out of the lockerroom like 5 seconds after Papelbon, who everyone was chasing. I needed him for a an '08 team set and asked him if he could sign. He didn't even look at me, just shook his head and said no. I guess I should be happy that he even acknowledged me then.
I was also at the pre-game in Reading on Friday when it was only me and one other person, still trying to get him to sign for my team set. Like Slitz said, his personal car pulled to within feet of the back entrance. Me and the other guy said his name a few times and he didn't even look over.

Anyone have any suggestions for a place to order 16x20 Phillies photos for the Phestival? I have most of the stars on balls, so I'm looking to start some photos. Preferably ones suitable for multiple signatures. I couldn't find anything decent online, I haven't had a chance to check out bcsports store yet.
