Default lambeauleap87's In Person Success Thread

So, I'm sure a lot of you guys know me from my In Person Autographs on SCF (or I had a nice Minor League Baseball thread running last year). Figured I'd finally track all my stuff on here as well. All things equal, I like to think I'm pretty good at getting autographs. In relatively limited time in the three years or so I've been serious about getting autographs, I've landed the likes of Buxton, Machado, Mauer, Bogaerts, Lindor, Durant, Sandberg, Fergie Jenkins, and quite a few more, most of which multiple times.

I'm located in central Ohio and spend most of my time doing the Indians AAA affiliates, the Columbus Clippers and visiting International League teams. Occasionally I do the Akron Aeros (and visiting Eastern League teams) or mix in some other games throughout the course of the season. But a majority of my focus is Minor League Baseball.

All that being said, it's only fitting to start this thread off with a hockey effort, right? I 'graphed the Columbus Blue Jackets after their game against the Pens tonight (got shutout by the Pens in my first attempt at doing a hotel last night) and did relatively well. Here's the successes:

John Davidson 1/1 Logo 8x10
Derek MacKenzie 1/1 Logo 8x10
Curtis McElhinney 1/1 Logo 8x10
Dalton Prout 1/1 Card
Jared Boll 2/2 Cards
Nick Foligno 3/3 Cards
Nikita Nikitin 3/3 Cards
Ryan Johansen 1/1 8x10!




Missed Sergei Bobrovsky as he only signed one for a little kid (who was STOKED, so that was neat). Johansen loved the photo because he's a great guy. All things equal, had a great time considering I spent about 45 minutes doing them and came away with thirteen autos!

I'm apologizing ahead of time for the poor scans over the next month...don't have a scanner while I'm down here at school in Columbus. Once the semester's over, though, I'll have some much better quality!

Nice stuff. Can't wait to see what you get this year. You had some great autos last year.

The Columbus Clippers held their annual Meet the Team event tonight, which has quickly become one of my favorite events to do based on the crowd and how smooth things run. Was in and out in less than an hour, scored some nice sigs, and got most of my stuff done (at least for guys who are on the Active Roster and not on the DL). Didn't end up with a TON of signatures, but still had a nice night and got a lot of stuff done to start the season. With that, I'm going to open up some 50/50s for the Clippers now. Anyway...

Jim Rickon 1/1 Team 8x10
Austin Adams 1/1 Team 8x10
Tim Fedroff 1/1 Team 8x10
Ryan Rohlinger 1/1 Team 8x10
Luke Carlin 1/1 Team 8x10
George Kottaras 1/1 Team 8x10
TJ House 1/1 Team 8x10
Mike Zagurski 1/1 Team 8x10
Chris Tremie 1/1 Team 8x10
Scott Barnes 1/1 Team 8x10
Travis Banwart 3/3 Cards (all the same)
Josh Tomlin 2/2 Cards (same)
David Cooper 1/1 Card
Tyler Cloyd 3/5, 2/2 Cards (had a friend help with the last two; gave him one)
Nick Hagadone 1/1 Card
Bryan Lahair 2/2 Cards (same)
Trevor Bauer 2/2 8x10s (one not scanned because it's for Dan)





All-in-all, nice to finally do some Clippers again and knock out a good chunk of stuff. Bauer's still a real piece of work, so I'm glad to be done with everything but cards for him already. Most of the other guys are good dudes, but a lot of the same ones from last year. No huge names, but I had fun tonight. The Bauer photo actually looks SWEET, it's just hard to capture with my iPhone...will be nice when I'm back home and finally have my scanner again.

Like I mentioned, I'm open to take some 50/50s for the Clippers, but if you even so much as ask about Bauer, I'm putting you on my Ignore List. Drop me a line if you're interested, though!

Thanks! I'm pissed at how bad it looks from the photo I took...gonna have to actually scan it when I get home. The gold looks real nice, despite how much I dislike Trevor Bauer.

The Bauer looks great. I still cannot believe that he was pretty much the coolest guy in college baseball a few years ago and now a total douche. That said I still hope he can turn his career around.

He's literally one of the biggest dbags I've ever met...I just don't understand how you can hate your fans that much, especially at a "Meet the Team" event with free booze for the players.

I said this in the other thread, I just wanted to say that I think Trev has a wicked awesome sig, and that personally I don't understand why you guys think he is a douche. Just because he doesn't do multiples? Isn't that really within his right? Lol. Consider yourself lucky, I mean this was a free event, no? :P

I definitely like his signature, but it's his demeanor that makes him a real piece of work. A perfect example comes from tonight...when I pulled my photo out, whoever was sitting next to him (I forget who it was; Zagurski, maybe?) said, "Woah, check that photo out, Trevor." And so I said, "Yeah, I found a pretty sweet photo for you to sign." His response? "First thing I'm signing tonight, and I already wish I was done."

Or something along those lines. Not the first time I've had an interaction with him like that. He's a terribly unpleasant person and rarely signs; it's not just a one-time thing.

I've got about 20-40 more pairs of gloves. Another 100-150 GU Bats.

Biggest dbag was Arod when he was a rookie. Maybe Jorge posada. Coolest Dennis Rodman and Walter Peyton!

Huntington Park is a great place. I live in Dayton, Huntington is better than 5/3 in my opinion. Good luck in Indy, I really want to try over there sometime....

Yeah, I'm not really one to judge off of one experience (for the most part), but I've had several experiences with him like that.
