I'll try to take and post pics in the next couple of days. I have team signed game-used balls (2003 - 2008) from when the Tribe's AAA team was the Buffalo Bisons. Everyone from Hafner to Jeremy Sowers and then some lol. I figured this would be the thread for them to be appreciated.

It is fun having someone to collect and chat with so that is worth more than any card.
Good deal! Wasn't that the Futures Game where Kip had a home run? I still need to pick up just the regular jersey version of that card...

Couple of my Kipnis pieces...


Bowman Draft Yellow Plate


8x10 signed at Tribe on Tour last year


ROMLB signed in Columbus in 2011

I think I have a plate from 2011 draft also. Don't remember which color.

That gold auto looks pretty cool though! I am hoping to get him on a ball at Tribe Fest. We shall see.

My other 1/1 is the Black Plate from '12 Topps...have the whole rainbow, minus the Wood/Platinum and other three plates. I'm not even sure if I need Kipnis anymore, as I have him on game programs, cards, a ball, and a couple photos. Hopefully you'll be able to get him!

Anyone around here a fan of Ezequiel Carrera? I have about a dozen signed cards of his that I got signed in person...

I had the Canary from 2011 Chrome. Needed the cash and had to sell it. Kept the Super, Canary, Red, and Orange from 2011 draft though. Somehow I missed out on the only Gold I've seen by forgetting about the auction lol.

Shade Tree that Kipnis collection is stellar!

Does anyone have any extra Kipnis for sale? Anything numbered or auto'ed.

Any of you get anything good for Christmas? I got a sweet new iPad that I'm typing this on as well as some vintage looking Topps baseball card signs and a blown of picture in a nice frame of The Jake. I'll see if I can post pictures straight from this thing somehow.

I got a new Indians hoodie and a couple boxes of Draft...only a couple Indians prospects, though. Sweatshirt will come in handy at TribeFest!

Anyone else going? I'll be there one day...but I have no need for McAllister or Kluber at the moment, if anyone needs anything.

Is the whole thing gonna be outside for TribeFest? I didn't even think about that and probably would have been pissed lol. Yeah aside from Naquin in draft there are only two other Indians. Josh Martin and Jeremy Lucas. I have a bunch of base for both and a few colored refractors they are very very cheap.

I don't have autos of anyone on the current roster except Brantley. I really like getting Ginter and Heritage cards signed. Obviously not all of the guys there have one but that is gonna be my main goal.

I would assume quite a bit of it would be outside, if only because I don't know where else would make sense for signings. I'm not really sure where else they could have it at Progressive Field.

I have everyone that'll be there, aside from Francona so he'll be the big goal. Also need Cody Allen on a card from last year's Akron Team Set. Other than that, I'd like another Santana and one or two others.

Hey everyone,

thought I would join this thread and introduce myself--I'm actually a HUGE Dodgers fan (live in LA), but when I was growing up some of my favorite players were actually Cleveland Indians so I rooted for them as well. My first PC ever was of Cory Snyder, and later I collected Carlos Baerga and Robby Alomar Indians stuff...and well, who wasn't a fan of Grady Sizemore, the way he played pre-injury?

anyways, the Indians are back on my radar because of this guy--Trevor Bauer. Was a fan of his at UCLA and hoping he can figure things out at the Major League level.

happy holidays and new year to all!

Im guessing it will be at what I call the basement level. There's a ramp to it right when you come in by the Q. You go down the ramp there is a large area, which in January is going to be cool from the air blowing down. I think thats where they store all the grounds crew stuff. It was about 6-7 years ago on a day when tickets went on sale, they had an event free to the public with a bouncy castle and stuff, and were able to take a tour of the clubhouse. (Which was connected to that area along with the batting cages) Everything fit easily in that area.

That is simply amazing bud! I hope he becomes 1/2 of all his hype.

I have been a lifelong tribe fan as well. I've actually been a season ticket holder as well for many years and still am if anyone ever needs any ticket help. I like the fact that their finally starting to spend some money and head in the right direction, but I still think it's gonna be at least 2 years before they make a serious run at the playoffs again. Their minor league depth isn't even that great as well, and most of their talent is still 2-3 yrs away. I hate the fact that they drafted naquin in the 1st rd, I think he's gonna be pretty worthless.

I know they have that signing event at the stadium coming up in january which is replacing all their tours they used to do. We usually get our autographs through the season ticket holder meet and greet event with the players. My tickets are also down the line 3rd row so it's a great location for kids to get autographs before the game as well. I have tons of team signed bats from over the years and stuff that I keep in my PC. Card wise my favorite indians pc card at this time is my asdrubal 1/1 patch below, part of me is glad they didn't trade him since I just bought this a few months ago... although for the value he has I kinda wanted to see them get a little bit younger

Brett Myers signed to add depth to the rotation...one year deal (with a club option), but I never saw how much. Regardless, it could be worse.

I like the move, worst case scenario if he doesn't pan out in the rotation he's a veteran and could easily be sent to a relief role like last season. I read the tribe has shown interest in shawn marcum as well, I'd like to see that happen since it seems about the only caliber SP free agents they can bring in these days

Don't hate the Myers signing. But I would be thrilled and stunned if they signed Marcum. I think that would be huge!

I think TJ Zuppe tweeted that the deal is worth $7 Million. I think it was worth it. More guys in the rotation is not a bad thing at all with this team
