Did you have him sign it Rico the Retard?? That might explain his behavior. B-)

Great, great thread.
Really enjoyed reading all the stories.
Just discovered it.

Really hard to figure out my favorite.

About 10 years ago MCI had a big deal going on where they had groups of players going to military bases to sign autographs.

I got Harmon Killebrew to sign one of his cards, Manny Sanguillen to sign a card, and Joe Rudi (one of my all time favorites) to sign a ball.

Played golf with Randy Jones at a charity event put on by Quinn Early (a close family friend) and had a great day riding in the golf cart and talking baseball with Randy. He signed a bunch of his cards and some 3x5s for me.

Lots of autographs from Quinn (I'm a huge Iowa Hawkeye fan).

Also, quite a few Marshall Faulk autographs from when he played for SDSU.

Don't sweat the post. That is a great pull. It's amazing how much those things have come down in price because they usually aren't as rare. :-/

True that. Any Mantle auto is worth at least two posts. Great card! ;-D
