Other Autograph Acquisitions
Decided to create a page for other autographs that I obtain through trades, pack pulls, purchases, or gifts.
2015 Arizona Fall League and 2016 Cubs Fantasy Camp
This past summer, I met a guy that works security for the Cubs, who has some significant connections around the Arizona Fall League and Cubs events in Arizona. These autographs come from a number of past players and future prospects. The pictures are labeled as best as I can.
Secret Santa 2015 Autographed Ball
My Secret Santa totally blew my mind away this year! She said these were all picked up in person at a minor league game. Included on the ball are, Michael Barrett, Bill Buckner, Ernie Banks, Lee Smith, Billy Williams, Fergie Jenkins, & Jody Davis. Love it!
Zach Petrick 2014 Bowman Green Auto
Picked this one up off eBay. #'d 74/100.
Lou Boudreau Custom Cut Card
I have had an autographed copy of Lou Boudreau's biography for awhile. After many attempts I was able to come up with a design that worked.
Clyde "Bulldog" Turner & George Connor
Picked up a couple autos from some Chicago Bears Hall of Famers today in a purchase. Clyde "Bulldog" Turner & George Connor.
Cubs Fantasy Camp 2015
A fellow Cubs autograph collector attended the 2015 Cubs Fantasy Baseball Camp in Arizona the week of January 19, 2015. He was able to snag quite a few autos for me... some of which were duplicate signatures and my kids already have laid clam to them. For my collection, The pictures below show the following:
- Gary Jesdtat signed camp used ball.
- Fergie Jenkins signed camp used ball.
- 4 x 6 signed by Bobby Howry
- 4 X 6 signed by Gary Matthews
- Autographed cards signed by
- 8 X 10 signed by Fergie Jenkins (will try to get signed by Bill Hands & Ken Holtzman as well)
Christmas 2013 was about old Cubs alumni. My Mother-In-Law was able to secure all of these from Altman's Hollywood Collectibles. The Joe Munson is just on a photocopy, I may turn that one into a custom cut, but the Joe Klippenstein and Mickey Owen are 8 X 10's and very cool.
Jim Flanigan Auto'd Mini-Helmet
Had an unexpected success today... was perusing a local antique dealer and came across a Bears mini in a box for $8 on a random shelf. Figured I'd pick it up to use at the National coming up. Opened it up to clean it up and found out it already had a signature from Jim Flanigan on it. Pretty cool find.
Ok. I'll admit. My in-laws spoil the snot out of me. This Christmas was incredible. Way beyond anything I expected. Here are the autographs they gifted that day:
- Miguel Cabrera auto'd bat and auto'd ROMLB
- Ron Dayne auto'd New York Giants jersey
- Logan Morrison auto'd Florida Marlins jersey
- Adam Kennedy auto'd ROMLB
- Jeremy Mayfield auto'd 1/24 World Series 2000 Diecast Car
Picked this OMLB3 up in a trade with "dabears67"
