Anyone got any cool autographs?

Otto Graham, Pee Wee Reese, Bob Feller from my grandfather who played a celebrity golf outing with them. Whitey Ford, Ron Guidry, Mel Allen, Tommy John, David Cone, Don Mattingly, Pete Rose, Bud Harrelson, Carl Banks, Joe Durso (Personalized on his Joe DiMaggio book), 10-12 players from one of the mid 90's Giants teams that sucked (Rodney Hampton and Dave Brown were their best players at the time, haha), and Bobby Rahal. That's probably it. I keep saying I'm going to get my '96 World Series Game 6 Ticket Autographed by Joe Girardi but I never get to the park early enough. I have that sucker plaqued up with a panorama of the celebration on the field. I should bring it to a signing show and get it autographed.

Oh, and I have a 94 8-o World Series ball waiting to be autographed by Bud Selig and then firmly implanted in the side of his skull.

No desire to get sports personalities autographs, though I've met several thru work or just going out on the town.

The only autograph I have asked for was Mary Carey's, but I won't tell you what she autographed.

Golly gee, I bet it was a video box, or a DVD box.

Won't try to guess the title, even though I probably could. :-D

I was at Giants spring training a couple of years ago pre-2001, I think I was in Middle school at the time, and waited for 2 hours outside the Giants locker room once practice was over just to get Bonds and Kent's autographs. My dad, who was with me, was getting really pissed and wanted to head to the next game we were going to (a Cubs game at Ho-Ho-Kam? Park, which is really a nice place to watch a game) and kept saying that I could get the autograph later, but I wouldn't leave. Finally Bonds and Kent came out (the last 2 players out) and I ended up getting both of their autographs on the same ball :-b . It was really fun and super-cool getting to meet both of them, despite later learning from my dad that Bonds was a complete a**hole to us, saying to my dad while he was signing the ball, "So how much are you paying him (gesturing towards me) to do this?"

I also got Eddie George's autograph on a Texas Rangers cap, kind of long story, but basically I was at a baseball camp at Stanford and we each were put on a MLB team and got a hat from that team, and I was the Rangers. One day during camp we saw Jerry Rice and Eddie George training on the field next to us. Rice wouldn't sign anything but Eddie signed a bunch of autographs, and the Rangers hat being the only signable thing I had with me he signed that.
