Lebron James in Akron Ohio Success
Left at 7:45 PM on Friday and did after at the Aeros game.. Didn't have much of anything, but we were headed in the direction anyways so figured we would stop by.
Ben Snyder - 6/6 8x10s, 5/5 4x6s
Carlos Santana - 1/1 GU OMLB
After that left to camp out for the Lebron signing. Before you say anything it was not my idea, I tagged along with my buddy as he really wanted it. So we got there at midnight and the signing was at 2 PM. After no sleep and standing next to crazy people for that long we finally got him. We were able to get back through the line, so I got 2 books done with Upper Deck Authentication. It was one per through the line, but the line was only maybe 400 people long. By getting there that early we were able to squeeze through the line again so I guess it was worth it.
Lebron didn't talk or say anything to the fans just to his people at the table. Didn't look up much at all either. Just glad that I got him and I am done with him. Was it worth it? Not really, but at least it is over!
Lebron James - 1/1, 1/1

Jeez, I read the line was longer in NY, but that they let you get more than 1 book signed. They said Lebron didn't say a word to anyone there neither. I'm glad I didn't waste my time or give him my money (as if he needs it) to not even get a thank you.Baseball Happenings -

Getting LeBron to sign anything in-person is quite an accomplishment by it's own right. But LeBron does need to come back down to earth, away from his massive ego, and appreciate his fans more. Nevertheless, congrats on the super sweet LeBron IP success!

Wow, that stinks. Waiting 14 hours in line for only 1 auto per person, ouch. In New York, they were allowing max of 5 books per person. Still nice to instantly make back 4 times your investment!CLICK MY GIRL FOR MY BUCKET :)

Yeah it was fun though to just hang around and do that over night. I have always hated Lebron because of his ego and being from Ohio all I ever hear is Lebron this Lebron that. I cannot wait for him to leave Cleveland :) But like I said I went so my friend didn't have to go along and I had fun and ended up with 2 Lebron autographs, so I guess I can't really complain.
That would have been great to get 5 per person. The one the day before in Westlake was 2 per. By the line being short I ended up getting two, but that would have been nice to get five haha.

Is there scans or pics of the autos on your DNAutographs.com?
That is my ONLY pet peeve about players and their signing for us fans, and that is forgetting your fans! I mean just look up, smile, and acknowledge the appreciation!
