Nice job getting Stewart. He is by far the toughest sig. on the Nascar circuit to obtain IP. After chasing him for 12 years, I finally did have a very pleasant, 1 on 1 encounter with him last June, when he was here to do the "seat swap" show on SPEED with F1 driver Lewis Hamilton.

2/2 Diecast cars: A green daytona 600 and a NOS #51 with an inscription of Rowdy.
Then I was able to gothrough again and get 2 8X10's.
I have now entered into theworld of Nascar collecting. Kinda fun but I will probably stick to baseball
I will post pictures when I can and I will entertain trade offers.New interest in Bobbleheads, especially big bases good for autographs. Baseball is always a priorty.

Philles at Braves
Friday Aug 31
Game one of three
As I mentioned Samnow has school until 4. I went down to the Ted to knock out a couple of Don Sutton 50/50's I am working on, and I asked the 6 , yes I said 6 graphers that were there if anyone was signing for the Phillies and they were emphatic in NO!!!! Seems the bus pulled up they all got off and no one looked up.
Mr Howard, as he did last time in promised to sign inside...
Oh, I got a few Suttons done, if you recieved my PM you knowthis and I hope to get everyone done this next three days.
Inside Batting Practice
Seen signing but did not get him; Kyle Kendrick!!!!
This makes big news as I have not seen him sign before and I have heard he is surly!!! Nice to see.
With 20 minutes to first pitch the only players strectching we Frandsen, who signed alot, Howard and Utley. Sam had his friend's Utley Jersey that he kept waving at him and sure enough, Over he comes, Signs for about 5-6 peole including the Jersay and Sam's '11 Topps that his friend was holding in exchange for Sam holding the Jersey. Not sure how that would have worked out if Utley did not sign the card. A fan hit Utley on the Hand with the Sharpie point , by mistake of course, and he just made a frustrated face and left. A pretty regular grapher said this is the first he had seen or heard of Utley signing in 4 years here. Sam got him outside the stadium last month so I cannot vouch that he is difficult but alot of others were very excited.
Then....Who should come over and keep his promise But Ryan Howard ( If you follow my thread you might recall that he told Sam he never "promised" to sign last time they were here) and signed 1/1 '09 Topps team highlight with Cole Hamels and 1/1 for me of the '10? Topps Broad Street Bombers with Rollins. So now Sam has a goal for the weekend of completing the Dual player cards... We shall what tomorrow brings.
oh and we got about 15 SGA Chipper Jones Prints #2. Trades welcome
Saturday Sept 1.
Philles at Braves
Game two of three
Sam got there about 5 hours before First pitch, right after little League. Missed alot of the team as they took the bus.
Nate Schurholtz 2/2 - '09,'12 Topps
Not sure who else signed but we got no one.
Inside Philies Batting Practice
Juan Pierre on an 04 florida Marlins Bobble head. Unfrtunately Sam gave hinm the wrong pen and the signature is not very good, but it was cool he really was surprised to see it and signed it #9 which was his number there instead of the bible inscription he usually gives.
Again a snoozer for two hours until Utley and Howard play the same game, Utley signed two for Sam the '09 and '12 and then a couple of people later, he stops and leaves. Very abrupt. Nice enough just seems a bit odd. Perhaps he is not feeling well.
Howard came over and signed but we missed him.
We made arare post game attempt. Rollins promised sam to get him tomorrow inside on the Broad Street Bullies card. He went so far as to tell Sam he was looking at his fac to remember him We shall see.
We got Dominic Brown 2/2, 1/1 '12 Topps X2 and '09 Topps
Larry Anderson 1/1 '85 Donruss
Hopefully Rollins keeps his word we will see tomorrowNew interest in Bobbleheads, especially big bases good for autographs. Baseball is always a priorty.

I will post the rest of the Day and the Rox, Nats when I get the list back from Sam.
Meanwhile this week has been a flurry with:
Monday September 25, 2012
Frank Thomas Personal Appearance:
4/4 2 ROMLB one with his MVP's and one with the MVP's and his 500th HR noted dated 6-28-07
This was an appearance promoting Big Hurt Beer. He was very nice and signed ALOT. He would not allow people to go through twice but you could get many multiples at one visit. I sw one collector get 5 cards signed. He had 8. I am not sure if he cut it off at 5, or what.

Atlanta Braves v Florida Marlins
Pregame outside of stadium
Ozzie Guillen 1/1- '87 Topps
John Buck 1/1- '12 Topps
Don Sutton 3/3- HOF Plaque and 2 cards for part of 50/50 we were doing, you have been contacted if these were yours.
Inside Batting Practice Marlins Side:
Wade Le Blanc 2/2- '10, '11 Topps
Jacob Turner 1/1- '12 Topps
Giancarlo Stanton 1/1- ROMLB He was just standing around as he was not going to play and took tosses from the 3 graphers there and signed as nice as I have ever seen. He took the balls, held them on the rail and made NICE signatures on Sweet Spots. Picture is too large to upload I will try to figure something out.
Steve Cishek 1/0- '11 Bowman RC Sam got a page of cards done for a friend and he gave him one. Cool enough, Sam was expecting nothing.
Joes Reyes- 1/1, 1/1- 09 Starquest Upper Deck, '12 Topps. We have done well with him this year. Have a couple of cards and a Bobblehead left for him to sign this year, we shall see.
Marlins at Braves
GU ball tossed to Sam :
Donovan Solano 1/1- Ticket from Tuesday's game in which he hit his first career HR, noted accordingly.
Heath Bell 1/1- '12 Topps
Reyes had to go inside to fix his pants, he did not have time to sign. We will try again today.

NY Mets at Atanta Braves
They were honoring Chipper Jones tonight so it was packed!!!!! I got extra prints if anyone wants one in trade. Message me for a picture or an offer.
Due to school we could only do batting practice,
Angel Pagan 2/2
Scott Hairston 4/4
Josh Turner 1/1
David Wright 0/1- Sam was next and he decided to go. I have never seen him so upset. The person before wanted a piture and he was frustrated as that took so long. Oh well you can't get them all.
Chipper Ceremony was nice. Fans really love him and its well deserved. Pregame outside the stadium only today.New interest in Bobbleheads, especially big bases good for autographs. Baseball is always a priorty.

A few questions: Do you have any of those Chipper Commemorative OMLB's? Is there any chance of you getting one signed? For a consignment or trade? Thanks and lmk!

Not yet. Not really likely to get anything signed by Chipper this weekend. 51000 fqns last night and most were there to see him.
