Went for the New Jersey Nets upon arrival at the hotel. Only got the following to sign for me:
Deron Williams - 1/1 trading card
Jordan Farmar - 1/1 trading card
Missed out on:
Anthony Morrow - 0/1 (came back out with Deron, Jordan, and a couple of other guys to go get something to eat; I called Jordan over instead)
Shelden Williams - 0/1 (went out and walked the other way with his headphones on)
DeShawn Stevenson - 0/1 (didn't recognize him with his hood on)
Didn't need Damion James. Saw Jordan Williams and MarShon Brooks hopped into a cab, but I didn't bring anything for them to sign. Of course, saw the former Mr. Kardashian upon arrival, but didn't even bother calling him over. Everybody else I missed upon arrival or go out.

Detroit Red Wings' winger Johan Franzen, winger Tomas Holmstrom, defensemen Niklas Kronwall, and left winger Drew Miller made an appearance for a paid signing they were doing at the Motor City Gallery at the Oakland Mall in Troy, MI. Didn't need Holmstrom and Kronwall, so paid the fees and got Johan to sign my puck with the inscription of "The Mule" on it and Drew to sign my 8 x 10 photo.

Did wall sign 2 at one time or did you have double dip? Usually the Wizards security guy is right behind him going nuts if anyone tries to get two. Nice job.Hidden Content

Attended the local sports talk radio station, 97.1 The Ticket, 3rd Annual "Sportsfest" at the Suburban Collections Showplace in Novi, MI today. This year a monetary donation of $10 for one of their charitible cause was required to obtain a wristband for the autograph sessions taking place there, as well as the numbers on the wristband used in a lottery to get in the autograph lines of former Detroit Red Wing Chris Osgood, former Detroit Tiger Cecil Fielder, or former Detroit Tiger Jack Morris. Got the following personnels to sign for me during their scheduled signing time:
Detroit Lions' defensive end Cliff Avril - 1/1 8 x 10 photo blow-up of me with Cliff
Pro Football Hall of Famer Lem Barney - 1/1 full-sized football with "HOF 92" inscription
Detroit Lions' safety Louis Delmas - 1/1 8 x 10 photo blow-up of me with Louis
former Detroit Tiger & MLB player Cecil Fielder - 1/1 trading card (my wristband number was in the group of numbers picked; wish I should of bought one of the Photofile photos they were selling there)
Hockey Hall of Famer Dino Ciccarelli - 1/1 8 x 10 photo with "HOF 2010" inscription
former Detroit Lion Billy Sims - 1/1 mini-football with my requested inscription of "3 x Pro Bowl" along with his added inscriptions of "78 Heisman" & "80 ROY" (Mr. Sims was by far the nicest and most cordial signer there)
Detroit Pistons' forward Austin Daye - 1/1 trading card
Also got IBF Light Middleweight champ, Cornelius "K-9" Bundrage, who was there to represent Kronk gym and help with a boxing session put on there, on his promo photo plus a photo with him. Missed out on Chris Osgood and Jack Morris, who of course didn't get drawn for. Didn't need Hockey Hall of Famer Ted Lindsay nor Detroit Red Wings' center Darren Helm. All in all, another good event put on by the station. The required donation may of irked some people, but due to the amount of seller and dealers there, I had no problem making the donation. Can't wait for next year's event.
