    A fairly good night of graphing post game in Durham and concentrated on the Bulls who are just horrid this year thus far.

    Nabbed Chris Archer, Bryan Augenstein, Tim Beckham, Alex Cobb, Dane de la Rosa, Matt Mangini, Ryan Reid, Rumolo Sanchez, and Alex Torres on a 16 X 20 photograph that was taken of the entire team lined up on the first base line prior to the opening night of the season on Thursday, April 2, 2012. All of these autographs were obtained in blue paint pen. Also nabbed Brandon Guyer on a card for a member on another board. Hopefully back tonight for autograph night post game!!!

    Suprisingly Beckham was very cordial. What is going on with him? I have gotten him several times since he turned pro and he has always been a class jerk. I tried to get Jeff Branson who is a coach for the Indians but the coaching staff came out and got into a van signing for no one.

    Another decent night of graphing post game in Durham and once again concentrated on the Bulls who lost their 12th straight game tonight.

    Nabbed Marquis Fleming, Kyle Hudson, Jhonny Nunez, Shawn O'Malley, Will Rhymes, Jeff Salazar, Matt Torra, and Stephen Vogt on a 16 X 20 photograph that was taken of the entire team lined up on the first base line prior to the opening night of the season on Thursday, April 2, 2012. All of these autographs were obtained in blue paint pen. I acquired Brandon Guyer autograph on a "Play Ball" program in blue Sharpie. Acquired Alex Torres on a 2011 Topps baseball card in blue Sharpie. Acquired Dave Myers on a 2010 Durham Bulls baseball card in blue Sharpie.

    Indianapolis was giving some people fits and once again, I was trying to nab Jeff Branson but was unsuccessful.

    On an absolutely unrelated note, I saw Reid Brignac's smoking hot Playmate tonight. She was Miss July 2002 and she is definitely easy on the eyes. Obviously she must not be very easy on his eyes because he is in Durham because of offensive problems.

    Last night I went to the Gwinnett Braves v. Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs.

    Manager and Hall of Famer Ryne Sandburg signed for about 40 minutes right before the game. He was super nice and easy going. Some guys in line said they had been on Monday (a near sold out Memorial Day game) and he did the same.

    I got his signature on a ball and a framed quote from his HOF speech. He took a picture with my 7 year old too. Real cool.

    It was a fun time. My daughter got to play one of the between inning games and I won a pizza. I didn't get a ball though.
    If I had only spent a tenth of the time studying Physics that I spent learning Star Wars and Baseball trivia, I would have won the Nobel Prize.

    You can eat a pizza...you can't eat a ball. You came out ahead.

    Anyway...Sandberg was one of the top signers at the Phillies ST camp. Once the minor league camp stsrts, the crowds are fairly big there as well...all because of Sandberg and he signs everything.

    Without trying to hijack the thread. . .

    We sat right on top of the visitor dugout (in the middle). My seven year old was crazy cheering for first baseman Cody Overbeck the whole game. He yelled for him in the dugout (while he was in the hole), when he was at bat and when he made a play on the field.

    I won't fault him for not throwing my kid a ball but a couple of times he looked right at him and tossed the ball the other way. After the game we went over to him for an autograph and he acted like a total ass about it. He had been talking to someone and we stood by for him to finish his conversation and then approached him. He didn't say anything, look at my kid or anything. Total disinterest. Complete opposite of the Hall of Famer manager prior to the game.

    At today's Palm Beach @ Clearwater FSL game. All but one are 8 x 10 card blowups.

    Chris Truby: Topps '01, Topps Total '01 and Topps '02.

    Dennis Martinez: Donruss/McDonald's MVP '92 and Donruss Triple Play '92 cards. Also signed an 8 x 10 pic from last year's IBAF World Cup where he was Nicaragua's skipper. He told me would like a copy of the pic and I plan to send him one.

    Hi New Member here and I appreiate any leads or advice. My 11 year old has taken up my old hobby.

    For our first post:

    Last night at Braves v Blue Jays AND Alumni Weekend:
    Phil Niekro on a Ball in Black Ball Point
    Dale Murphy on a 83 Topps All Star card in Blue Sharpie
    Leo Mazzone
    Jeff Tradway
    Craig Skok

    Omar Vizquel on a Topps

    Missed Bautista by guessing on the wrong side of the dugout. Darn
    Trying again tomorrow

    Had the exact same experience on Wednesday. My son was the only Kid really calling him and being polite. He gave the ball to another kid twice instead and avoided Sam two other times. odd.

    OTOH, Ryne Sandberg and Dominic Brown Autographs were gotten so Mission Accomplished.

    Don't know what is going on with Juan Miranda. He has walked past everyone for the past three weeks and I have not seen him pick up a Sharpie.

    Good Day at Turner Field today for the Blue Jays v Braves:

    Sam got:

    Buck Martinez 1/1
    John Farrell 1/1- Both Farrell and Martinez were on Topps Blue Jay team cards as Sam "forgot" the Buck Martinez cards I had.......
    Colby Rasmus 3/4- One got smudged by rain-- I would be grateful for advice on keeping drying methods and/or keeping cards dry while queueing up. We have our cards in a large sketch book mounted with photo corners. We switch out the cards when a new team comes to town. It was raining/misting most of the pregame and this was the first time we experienced this.
    Brandon Morrow 3/3
    Jason Frasor 1/1
    Edwin Encarnacion-1/1

    All in Blue Sharpie

    also signing today but we either missed or did not have cards for them to sign:
    Darren Oliver
    Omar Vizquel
    Chad Beck
    David Cooper
    Casey Janssen
    Mike McCoy


    In reagrds to not having cards, we have seen some collectors using a 4X6 color photo of a ball on the sweet spot. Anyone else seen/do this or have other thoughts?

    Janssen did toss Sam a ball and Omar vizquel had Sam do a dance for one between innings. He was not impressed by Sam's dancing and his Latin mother is horrified by his effort, but Omar gave him a ball anyway....Yankees are in next and we are not very optimistic at all.

    Rhyne Hughes x2
    Jonathan Schoop x2
    Manny Machado

    Machado's signature is pretty lame. I'll try to get it signed by Dylan Bundy next season if he's on the BaySox.
