Sportscards1013 Summer 2011 IP Autograph Blitz
 
After a while off the boards and out of the hobby, I am finally back! Before today, I had not gotten an IP autograph since a show on 4/3, and the only ones I have from this year (all at shows):

Shawn Thornton
Ken Hodge
Mike Lowell
Lee Smith
Bobby Hull
Sam Jones
Jim Brown

So obviously a solid group of guys, but I'm craving more...so I've decided to do an IP blitz. In the next 3 weeks, I have 6 autograph oportunities, and I'm hoping to score big with all of them. My first was today...and let's just say I did extremely well.

Also while I was up in the concourse waiting in line, several Spinners players walked by in an effort to meet Kaline. I was able to get one autograph,
