So, I've finally gotten around to scanning my most recent in person autographing adventure, which took place at the end of February. Yeah, I know, I'm lazy. It was a Spring Training game in Fort Myers between the Minnesota Twins and the Pittsburgh Pirates. I got to the stadium about two hours before the game as Minnesota was finishing up BP and was planning on spending a long day 'graphing between the practice fields and warm-ups. Well, that didn't work out quite how I'd planned. After I'd gotten about four autographs, I was approached and asked if I would be the batboy (I'm finishing up my senior year) for the Pirates! Couldn't get any autographs, but I did get to be on the field, hang around in the clubhouse, etc. It was an awesome experience, and I got to take a couple game-used ROMLBs, too! Not the 'graphing day I'd been hoping for, but it was a once in a lifetime experience. I still landed a few sigs, most of which were pretty decent. Here's the haul:
Jeanmar Gomez 8x10 Pirates Logo Sheet
Anthony Slama 1/1 Card (Got him as he was leaving)
Oswaldo Arcia 2/2 Cards (Bubbled...forgot how bad Bowman was for autos)
Eddie Rosario 1/1 8x10 Logo
Alex Meyer 1/1 8x10 Logo
So not the day I was hoping for, but some top prospects, which was cool. I think I'm going to turn the logo sheet for the Twins into a top prospect project for their players...maybe I can add Sano/Buxton/etc. to it someday!
Not great for autographs, but it was cool getting to spend a day in the clubhouse and meet Paul Molitor, Tony Oliva, and most of the non-starting Pirates; not to mention being on the field for a Major League game!

Happy Opening Day, guys! Pumped to have baseball season back. Have a few Clippers games/events scheduled for this month, and possibly a game in Akron. Looking forward to really giving the collection a boost with some of the guys I'll be seeing.

Incredible night tonight...legitimately finished up probably 90% of my Clippers stuff. Will update the thread tomorrow, but it was awesome!
