Are you going to sit there at your computer and tell me that you’ve never attended a minor league All Star game? If so, I’m going to fire back that you really should make an effort to do so. You never know who(m) you might bump into…
Actually, now that I think about it, you probably should contact the media director of the team hosting the event to find out if they are going to be having any special autograph sessions as part of their festivities so you can pack accordingly.
I obtained these Ron Cey autographs in person during the summer of 2007 during the “Fanfest” portion of the Triple-A All Star Fiesta that was hosted by the Albuquerque Isotopes.
Although I appreciate them all, the 1975 Topps is without question my favorite of the group. It was a shame that I didn’t also have the mini parallel to get signed.
Luckily I did have the 1987 Topps mini with me! People constantly give me a difficult time because I like these cards with the wood grain background. Their tauntings fail to bother me, but rather I shrug them off like water off a duck’s back (or in this case, a penguin).
I think the world would be a boring place if we all liked exactly the same things. What would be the fun if every baseball card collection were identical?
I expect my collection of old time Dodgers autographs will begin to grow this summer since the Dodgers have relocated their Triple-A franchise back in the Duke City. So you can expect more posts like this one in the future.
