I belong to on of the churchs that has a sports dinner every year. Last nights guest speaker was #20 Mike Schmidt. Hes a good speaker!
In days leading up to the dinner I grabbed an old ball and a 83 Topps AS #339 card and just duddled his mug on it. It wasn't to bad so I went ahead and put all his stats on it. I didn't know if he would sign it but he did.
I know its a little diffrent but what do you think. Good bad or waste of a great auto.

Thanks - no one was asking for autos - I only saw 4 guys ask him for auto and I got 2 the other is on a new OMLBB - felt a little wierd asking for two. But he was nice about it.

1.) Cool ball-something different and unique. Perfect shading on the mustache!
2.) I've heard Schmidt can be difficult when it comes to autos, so its refreshing to hear otherwise. I've always liked Schmidt
