    Awesome PC mailday!

    So, while enjoying a movie with my family today before I have to get ready for work there was a knock on the door. We weren't expecting anyone, & especially not the postman. (We live on the top floor of our apartment building.) My wife answers the door & turns around with this rather large cardboard tube & instantly looks at me to ask me what I bought now? Now, of course I am expecting a package later in the week, but nothing that should arrive in a cylinder package. I immediately look at the return address & it's from the Vanderbilt University Athletic Department. I have written & called them several times each trying to find out information about how I can obtain one of the new baseball schedule posters that feature Michael Yastrzemski. Each time I told them how I would love to get one personally, but the drive from Indiana is just too far for me to make with my current work schedule, especially when I've only gotten 9 days off since the week before Christmas last year. Anyway, I open up the tube with extreme excitement because I know it just has to be one of the posters. Out falls one of the pocket schedules & I see the poster rolled up inside & carefully remove it. As I'm unrolling it I start to notice a signature on it....then another....& another. The entire team signed it for me! I would've never expected them to do this for me, but I am ever so thankful that they did! My perseverance paid off big time! So let's hear it for Baseball America's #2 ranked team in the nation! GO DORES!!!



    Thanks so much VU!

    I am an avid Atlanta Braves Auto collector. I am in the process of updating all my autos to a spreadsheet and organizing them. I am always looking for Atlanta Braves RCs Autos and also nice veteran autos.

    Joey Votto can run faster, jump higher, dive deeper, stay under longer, come up dryer and whip his weight in wildcats while gettin' kicked every fifteen minutes by a Zebra.

    Thanks everyone! Now all I need to do is find a frame for it, 14 x 36 is a rather odd size.
