Default Eastern League All Star Game 50/50+Consignment



UPDATE: 7/9

http://www.milb.com/news/article.jsp..._l113&sid=l113

I'm going to the Eastern League (AA) All Star Game in Altoona, PA this year for the whole 2-day festivities, across July 15-16. The "home run derby" and "charity celebrity softball game" are day one, with the team autograph signing and actual game on day two. I've been looking to take consignments and 50/50s for some time, and thought that this would be a great way to get into that. I also go to Spring Training each year in Arizona and before I do anything for that, I'd like to consider this a test run.

The charity game on the first day will have former major leaguers Adam Hyzdu, Tike Redman, and Jack Wilson. I'm also taking stuff for them too, so let me know. As with other similar offers seen here, you must include a SASE for your labeled item(s). If I am unable to get your item signed, I will return it as such.

As with anything else, anything I can't get signed will simply be returned to you at no charge. Some of the players I am not interested in 50/50s for, as bigger and more requested players will likely not sign x10 anyway lol ~ Certain players below will be marked with a price per card if you are still interested in me trying for them though. If you want them on photos please pm me and we can work something out. There are no guarantees! If 20 people send me Henry Owens and he only signs 3, I will return the rest unsigned at no charge. * = I am definitely taking 50/50s and taking stuff for them (no charge). Since I frequent New Britain, I might be able to get any Rock Cats stuff (Vargas, Cole Johnson, Thomas, Reynaldo Rodriguez, Taylor Rogers) even after the ASG, so just let me know.

Very interested in this.

Just watch out for that Jessie Biddle. I read somewhere that you can call his name for 30-40 minutes and he still won't sign for you :-)

All three of those guys (hyzdu, redman, wilson) were automatic signers at games in my childhood. I remember my sister playing with Jack Wilson's kid when she worked at Toys R Us and he showed up.

Redman always confused me. He was a guy that always seemed to hit for average but could never land a spot on a big league club full time, not even the Pirates.
He was a career .281 hitter and batted .318 in his last season with the Orioles (132 ab). How the heck did no one pick him up?

For a team that had practically nothing in the outfield, I have no idea why the bucs didnt stick with a guy like Redman at least in a bench role.

Hyzdu had some great moments in his short buccos career including a memorable week
"Hyzdu was named "NL player of the week" the Week for July 15–21, 2002 while playing outfield for the Pittsburgh Pirates. He batted .588 with three homers and a league-leading 11 RBI. In fives games during the week, Hyzdu was 10-for-17, scored six runs, and compiled a slugging percentage of 1.118 and an on-base percentage of .611.

On July 19 versus St. Louis, he belted his first career grand slam. The following day, Hyzdu established career-highs with four hits, including a pair of three-run homers, and seven runs batted in."

Good times. I have his signature on an Altoona Curve team set card.

I have Jack Wilson's on a ticket and about a zillion other things.

I have redman's on some old fleer tradition and some other things too.

Good times in a time of poor baseball for the buccos.

For real, I'll get a ton of cards out to you for 50/50 though.

It's my understanding that the coaching staff for the "west" division will be the very same Altoona Curve staff, those guys for sure I can confirm now Along with Wilson, Redman, and Hyzdu. Those three will also be accompanied by former Pirate Mike Johnston, who pitched in 25 relief appearances across the 2004-2005 seasons. A quick search for cards for him brought up only one card I can find, a 2005 Topps dual card.

I'm not sure who is coaching the "east" division, but for now I can definitely confirm 50/50s or consignments for the Curve manager Carlos Garcia and batting coach Ryan Long. I can't imagine anyone would seek the other two (who never cracked the majors...). Garcia was most notable during his 10 seasons in the Majors for his 1994 MLB All Star selection. Long had an ironically short stint in the Majors (6 games for the '97 Royals) but appears to have at least one card ('98 Fleer). If anyone's interested, it's first come first serve. Just lemme know

Open now for anyone interested:

Carlos Garcia
Adam Hyzdu
Mike Johnston
Ryan Long
Tike Redman
Jack Wilson

Here's a not-so-new link about the charity game.

Not yet, but the event is still more than 2 weeks away. I thought they'd have them up by now, since the "entirely important fan vote" ended this weekend and they had the presser available by this time last year. (although the events were also a week sooner than this year's).

I was starting to think that; I'll have more info obviously then. With a Monday roster release, that still gives over a week prior to the events. People can probably start sending stuff once I see the rosters and decide what can be done. Stuff just has to get to me before I go of course!

I just ordered another box of Pro Debut (from BO, of course ) and it should be here Tuesday-ish. If we get the roster Monday, I get cards Tuesday and send to you Wednesday, would that work? I could even overnight them if needed?

I'll PM you... Thanks!

A couple of these names (Hyzdu, Redman) I haven't heard in years and forgot they even existed. That happens, though, I guess.
