Made it back to Columbus today to 'graph Toledo again this afternoon...much warmer, so I hung around postgame to see how much of my stuff I could get done. I still owed Dan (gladdyontherise) some stuff, too, so it only made sense to go back today. The added heat helped and I managed to put up another very good day. Here's what I got:
Kevin Russo 1/1 Card
Casey Crosby 1/3 Card
Phil Nevin 3/3 Cards (Traded one for a Castellanos, so I only have two)
Danny Worth 3/3 Cards (one for Dan)
Jordan Lennerton 1/1 Autograph Card
Matt Capps 6/6 Cards
Omir Santos 2/2 Cards
Quintin Berry 1/1 8x10 (Dan)
Bruce Rondon 1/1 8x10 (wiped the sig off and got redone)
Nick Castellanos 1/1 ROMLB (Dan), 1/1 Card
Rondon looks similar to the one above (same photo), so I didn't bother scanning that and the Castellanos ball is going to Dan and is a huge picture, so I didn't bother posting that. All-in-all, a pretty great weekend. I got to add two Castellanos, Rondon, Berry, and quite a few others as well as help out a friend. Toledo has a LOT of guys that are one-per as you can see. Was really happy to get my Capps stuff done. Bauer and Dice-K wouldn't sign postgame...Joe Martinez was with his family (and an easy 'graph) so I'll finish my stuff up next game. Hermida is a guy I don't really care to deal with at this point, so I'm not sure what else of his I'll get done. So, yeah, I'm pretty happy. If anybody's interested in a Matt Capps, I have eight of his cards signed at this point...what do you guys think?

That Q-Ball is SICK! Good decision to go with silver over gold. The Danny Worth cards turned out nice, also.Click banner for tradelist

Nice haul. I did Columbus when ey wre in toledo, and Bauer walked by all of us post game and looked really pissed off (he had just pitched a really good game).

Trevor Bauer just Tweeted he loves signing for fans...ouch.
He's turned me down one-on-one, two-on-one, and signed three for a crowd of eight at the three games I've been to this year...and I'm a die-hard Indians fan.

Had a great night in Columbus tonight...went down on a whim to get try and get Michael Bourn, who's down with the Clippers on a rehab assignment. One of the lowest nights total-wise, but some of the most fun I've had at a baseball game in a long time. Not only did I get to catch up with a friend who I haven't seen for awhile, but I got to 'graph and have an awesome experience! Here's my haul:
Matt Laporta 1/2 Card
Chris Antonetti 1/1 Ticket Stub (Indians GM!)
Michael Bourn 1/1, 1/1 (help from my friend) ROMLB, Mini-Helmet
High point of the night, and surprise of the night, was getting to meet and have a conversation with Indians General Manager Chris Antonetti! He was at the game for whatever reason and was a great guy. Really cool to talk to such a high-up in my favorite team's organization. Without a doubt, wasn't expecting that! He said Michael Bourn could be down tomorrow on rehab still, but it was up in the air. Michael Bourn was also an awesome guy...said he'd sign after warm-ups and he came right to me. Sweet-spotted my baseball (for the most part...) and was a nice guy. Matt Laporta seems to have mellowed out as well. I also got my first game-used ball at a Clippers game and it was one pitched by Trevor Bauer! Pretty awesome night.
