You got some nice autos back. It's always great to see your SASE in the mailbox, but it's extra sweet when it's from someone you REALLY wanted.

1 Nice success from another young talent in the minors!

#1:
Matt Carson c/o AAA team (Sacramento) 17 DAYS 1/1
Another one of my RC sendouts comes back, but I don't like this one because it is in ballpoint pen. I may resend if I pull a Heritage/A&G card of him.

Default More Fantastic IP Successes!!

I had UNBELIEVABLE seats at Fenway on Wednesday in the owners' box next to the dugout, and was all pumped up to get LOADS of autos. Sadly, I had to battle security all day because they wouldn't let me across the aisle from my seat to the dugout, and kept coming up with stupid excuses. Terry Francona sat 5 feet away from me for 10 minutes before the game and I couldn't go over to him for an auto because of the look I was getting from the guard.

I barely missed Clay Buchholz's auto, as he walked away just as I got to my seat. Then, the pitchers walked in, and I was ignored by Papelbon, Lester, Lackey, Schoenweis, Ramon Ramirez, Delcarmen and Victor Martinez who was also out. An hour into pre-game autos, I had nothing, until Darnell McDonald, a AAA call-up up to replace Jacoby came out of the tunnel and signed my Heritage Sox team card. Any success was good at this point! Soon, the starters started coming up and I was able to immediately get Jeremy Hermida to sign the same card as McDonald. Next, Adrian Beltre signed his Heritage card with a beautiful signature, and I got on a roll. David Ortiz signed for me, as did my two favorites, Kevin Youkilis and Dustin Pedroia. VERY HAPPY with those two. It was my first auto of McDonald, Hermida, and Beltre, but I had gotten Pedroia and Papi IP befoer and of course Youk TTM. It was, however, my first IP auto of Youk.

All in all a great day (except for security!)


SCANS:
#1-Darnell McDonald (smudged) and Jeremy Hermida on Sox team card
#2-Adrian Beltre on 2010 Heritage
#3-Kevin Youkilis on 2010 Heritage
#4-Dustin Pedroia on 2010 Team Set Card
#5-David Ortiz on 2010 Team Set Card

I don't think so. Haven't seen any successes of him.

PM me with the address for Robert Parish, please!

Default 5/13 Mailday

I'm behind by 3 maildays, so I'll do some catch up today...

5/13:

#1:
Daniel McCutchen c/o AAA Team (Indianapolis) 20 DAYS 1/1
Auto looks great, another 2010 Topps card signed!! I have so many now I might go after autos on the whole base set!!!

#2:
Nick Green c/o AAA Team (Albuquerque) 20 DAYS 1/1 (4x6)
As you can see, most of my successes are copycats of other's trials, I'm not much of a risk-taker, lol. But I had made up 4x6s of this photo for IPs at the Sox game, and had some extra, so I sent Mr. Green a picture of himself jumping into the pile of Sox at home plate after his walk-off last Father's Day, and here it is!!!

Nice personalization from a great prospect, but card got dinged up in the process. If I'm able to get a Heritage or A&G card of him, I might re-send...

Default Sat. 6/5-Another Great IP Auto Day!

While the Red Sox were on the road, they hosted a Fan Appreciation Day on June 5 at the Team Store on Yawkey Way. Lots of contests, raffles, giveaways, specials, etc., but I was there for the NICE autograph lineup!!!!

From 11-1, they were scheduled to have these former Red Sox:
Brian Daubach
Sam Horn
Jim Lonborg (1967 AL CY YOUNG WINNER & RED SOX HOFER)

I gathered 2 cards of Dauber and 1 of Horn, and had 4x6s made for Lonborg. Unfortunately, Lonborg cancelled last minute, so no luck there. OK though, because I got him at a signing back in January.

11-1 RESULTS:
Brian Daubach 2/2-2001 and 2002 Topps-Very nice guy to talk to
Sam Horn 1/1-1991 UD-Also very nice.

Then, after I ate lunch, the signers came in for the 1-3 timeslot. My main target of the day was standing at the door as I walked in, The Spaceman, Bill Lee! If you are not familiar with him, here you go: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Le...handed_pitcher)

An awesome guy who I've always wanted to meet, and I finally got my chance on Saturday. Also from 1-3, local boy Lou Merloni, who I've gotten before IP, was signing. Pretty big surprise when I got to the store, they also had Rico Petrocelli, another 1975 AL Champs team member and Red Sox HOFer, signing! (Rico Petrocelli - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

1-3 RESULTS:
Lou Merloni 2/2 4x6s (Athletics image was only one I could find) Talked to him about growing up locally, etc., great guy as he seems on TV.
Rico Petrocelli 1/1-Red Sox Franchise History Card from 2010 Topps-Got pic with him and Bill Lee-also very nice to talk to.
Bill Lee-1/1 (8x10)-Very nice guy, very out there, but great to meet IP. I handed him the pic and he laughed-Rico said, "Hey, Bill what were you saying to Zimmer at that moment?" Lee responded, "I said, 'Zimm, you know one thing about pitching', and he said, 'What's that, Bill?', and I looked him and the eye, and said, 'That it's hard to hit'", LOL! Then he said he was going to Zimmer's Red Sox HOF induction this year and is going to release 100 gerbils in the room, etc. So funny, gotta love the Spaceman!!

All in all, a great day for autos!!

Default IP Autos Round 1

So sometimes I go outside Fenway to get autos in the afternoon, as the players arrive. Success in the past:
Lou Merloni
Paul Byrd
Paul Lo Duca

Nothing stunning, but a couple great successes a couple weeks back!!

I was able to get:

JASON VARITEK First EVER IP auto of him for me, very excited.
Lance Cormier, Rays
DON ZIMMER Miserable, said "I'm not here for an auto session", but signed for me!! Funny meeting him and Bill Lee in the course of a month.


Varitek on Heritage card, Cormier on paper (great sig btw), on top of Zimmer.

On another note, I asked BJ Upton to sign his card for me as he was walking in, and he said "not right now".
