gladdyontherise's IP success thread
I have season tickets (28 game package) for the Tigers this season and got my first success of the season. After trying the Tigers the first two times (and not getting anyone), I decided I might as well just do the road team unless it's another poor signing team (Red Sox were in town last weekend).
Did the Rays today and got two signatures, but very happy with the result.
Jeff Niemann signed for about 4 or 5 people, was friendly, by the time he signed the dealers had left already.
Then the big one (for me anyhow)
Only signed for me and another guy. Again, the dealers had left and for whatever reason me and the other guy were the only ones who asked. Not sure if people didn't recognize him or what, but he had pitched a heck of a game yesterday.
Next game is the 19th vs the Rangers.

Did the Rangers yesterday and the only one who ended up signing was Josh Hamilton. He was really nice and signed for a solid 30 minutes or so (until the end of batting practice). TONS of dealers there though, and they complained about him doing 1 per..Pretty ridiculous in my opinion.
My card didn't turn up very well, but life goes on.
Next game is tommorow vs the Rangers again. Verlander is starting. Gonna try and get the pitchers tommorow (mainly want Joe Nathan)

Its really a joke sometime with those guys. about 6 of them ive never seen at the hotel but 2 i did. I was the kid with the toledo hat and had a white binder.

It was pretty funny to see the one guy give Hamilton his binder to sign a card and he ended up signing all 9 though
