Went to the Childrens' Miracle Networks Classic at Disney yesterday and had some really nice successes.
David Price- Signed ball SS and pic with (was nice and signed for everyone, but it was easy to tell that the dealers who had been there all week were wearing on his nerves)
Joe Mauer- Signed ball SP and pic with (joked about the dealers "coming back for more", but signed for the 20 or so people waiting for him when he finished)
Derrick Brooks- Signed 5x7
Carlos Pena- Signed 5x7
AJ Pierzynski- Signed 5x7
Ryan Longwell- Signed 5x7 and pic with
Bill Engvall (comedian)- Signed 5x7 and pic with
The only one who turned me down was Fred McGriff, saying he would sign at the end, but after being there for 6 hours, I didn't want to wait another 2 for him to finish.

Nice Mauer. I've never seen him pick up a pen before, here in MN, except for Twinsfest, but it's $35 just for him and he doesn't have a choice. He's not even worth that anymore. Hardly worth the $15 I payed for him in 07.2013 autograph counts:

Went to Blue Jays camp today in Dunedin. Man, what a waste of time. Players were running all over and the resounding response from them all was "I'll sign after workouts... busy now", even when they were just standing around chatting. Well, practice ended, and they all went straight to the bus to go back to the stadium.
So, I drove over to the stadium and waited outside the players' parking lot. There were about 15-20 graphers there and they had us all in a gated area and it was up to the players to stop and roll down their windows if they were to sign. 2 and a half hours went by, and nobody stopped, except for a few non-roster guys and minor leaguers. Until FINALLY, after being shot down by Rasmus, Encarnacion, and Bautista, Jose Reyes decided to stop for the few of us who were left. That was my only legit success of the day:

Rays vs. Indians 4/5/13
Not many guys signed tonight. Got Ryan Roberts on a card at the end of BP.
After the Rays finished BP, I headed over to the Indians side with the one ROMLB that I brought in case someone good decided to sign. Got turned down by Swish, but Michael Bourn started signing down the baseline, so I ran over and was one of the last few to get him on my ball.
Went back to the Rays side just before the game and the only guys who signed were Evan Longoria (it was kind of strange, he just moved down the line picking and choosing random things to sign rather than staying put. Signed maybe 20-25 then left). Also just missed James Loney as he finally stopped by after the ushers were moving everyone out of the bottom rows.
Ryan Roberts- 2012 Topps
Michael Bourn- ROMLB SP

Nice Bourn! I'm hoping to get him when he comes to Minneapolis to add to my Astros collection. Was he a pretty good signer or was it a surprise that he stopped to sign?Going for 2,013 autographs in 2013
2013 Totals: 733
JJ Barea: 52
