Default Bubbles TTM/IP Success Thread. New and will keep updated!

My last thread I kept going for awhile, but it gradually just got so outdated that I should just start fresh with recent successes.

First I will start with an IP success from Ben McLemore. He came back to Lawrence to host a charity event. Truly a great guy

Chiefs training camp Day 1/2

Not too many people there that day. Not too many players signed that I had brought stuff for, so left with 4 autographs

Dwayne Bowe signed for literally everyone. Actually a really cool dude, and looked great at camp.


Deanthony Thomas also looked great. I was super pumped that the Chiefs drafted him, as I was a big fan of his in college.


Dustin Colquitt is probably the nicest guy on the team. Signs for everybody almost every day it seems like. I was going to get Berry on the Tennessee helmet, but decided to get Colquitt, as I already have Berry on a mini. He is truly a great player, and a fan favorite! I handed him the helmet and he said "Oh sweet!". And I asked for the Go Vols inscription.


Travis Kelce signed both days I went, and signed for everyone. Really nice guy. I hope he does good this year.

Training camp Day 2/2

Today was D-Lines day to sign autographs. I had only brought one thing for D-Line, but Dontari Poe is an amazing player, and I wouldve been satisfied with just this picture. Signed for almost everyone today.


Eric Berry didn't practice, but he did sign today. A great guy, and one of my favorites. He is a great safety, and a fun player to watch. Hope he heals up quick!


Going into practice today, I bought this Colquitt picture at the fan shop. It was 8 bucks, which is steep, but I figured I might as well because I really like Colquitt and forgot to order a pic of him. Needless to say, I'm glad I bought it. He was giving rushed signatures on team stuff, but since I had a picture of him, he gave me a nice long signature and inscribed Go Chiefs, and I didn't even ask this time!

It's a blast. It's really cool meeting the players up close. Almost all are really cool.

Bubble - I tried like hell to find one of those damn shoes Ben was hiding in downtown Lawrence. Wife, my son and I had a great at Ben's fundraiser as well. Was able to get his KU Sports magazine signed there. Not sure if you went, but Mario was here signing as well and was able to pick up one an item I need signed by him and Tyshawn.

Awesome! Yeah, I just went to the free thing in the park. I couldn't go to the slam, but I wanted to!

Well tonight I went to the Tbones game because my hitting coach Jeremy was hitting in a Home run derby against some guys and Jose Canseco. Jeremy was the only one not using a loaded bat, and he got second with 8. Pretty cool

Canseco signed autographs during the game in the team store for 5 bucks. So I got a card signed. Was going to get the baseball, but decided I'd get the best Royals second baseman of all time on it!


Frank White is the first base coach for the Tbones. He was really nice. I asked for an inscription on the ball, but there was a ton of people so he said he'd put #20 on it instead. Overall a good night. Heading to the Omaha game tomorrow against the Cubs! Will update tomorrow or Tuesday!

Wow! Any day you can get those two guys at one time is a good day! Congrats! You've been really killing it lately!

That Colquitt helmet is great, by the way.

Thanks a lot man! Hope to continue my luck tomorrow! Pulled a sweet diamond refractor of Baez out of a pack of platinum, so hope to get that signed

Well today at the game I had a few family members help me get Kris Bryant. He is a great guy. I will say I was worried after all the rumors about him getting harder and harder to get, but the worries over! Here's what I came away with

The bat I got on GTWholesale, with one line of engraving. I obviously got his name.


The next three items look great too. I now have a nice collection of Bryant memorabilia




Jorge Soler signed pregame down the line. Got him on a Blue wave. Looks sweet! Going for an official MLB tomorrow for him


John Lamb started the game today, but he still took the time to sign pre game. He asked how I was doing, and was very friendly. He is an amazing guy, and should be in the big leagues sometime soon!


Matt Fields, who has 21 homers, signed post game for me. He is really nice and has crazy power. I wish he'd get the call up with Hosmer hurt. Royals could use a boost of power..

So a new Kris Bryant signature variation has appeared (on the helmet)!

That Soler is nice. I have a feeling he'll be called up soon. And wow it feels like John Lamb has been in the minors forever. Hopefully he does get called up soon.

Bryant's auto is starting to remind me of Lawrie's current auto.

Nice haul!

Iowa Cubs @ Omaha Storm Chasers Day 2:

Well I was VERY satisfied with Day one, so I wasn't too worried about going an hour early to get autographs, so I showed up 35 minutes early. Kris Bryant came out and Signed for everyone (Only 10 or so) and I got these signed with help



So needless to say, I was pumped. I got both 8x10's, a hat, Mini helmet, bat, and team USA card signed by one of my favorite non Royals players. So I headed Down to the first base line, and Jorge Soler signed for everyone there after he finished stretching. He side paneled the ball, but honestly, I think side panels look good too. That doesn't bother me at all. If a player takes time to sign, I don't care what it looks like, I'm just happy they sign!!



After a few innings, I decided to check the team store. To my surprise, they had the game used lineup card from the day before! So needless to say, I bought it in a heartbeat. I also bought a game used ball from the day before. Only cost me 20 bucks for 2 lineup cards (Bought another from last year when Yordano Ventura started a game), and a game used ball.

So after the game I decided to try and get a few guys on the lineup card. I got my two favoriteStorm Chasers, John Lamb and Matt Fields. I was super pumped!


And last but not least, Mr. Bryant signed after the game too for about 15 people, and I asked him to sign the lineup card, and he did! One of the best two games of my life and I had a blast!

Now for the ttm return. I sent this almost exactly 8 months ago. I now have gotten mini helmets back ttm from arguably the best Receiver, QB, and Runningback. Probably my favorite receiver in the league! So happy I got this, wasn't expecting it at all!



For those who don't recognize the signature... CALVIN JOHNSON!!

It's really cool that a star like Calvin Johnson has been pretty automatic TTM for the last couple of seasons! Reminds me that I still have a few things to send to him lol

Is it truly him? If so, I'm glad it seems many stars sign their mail.

Whoa. Are you trying to tell me you got the hottest minor league baseball player and the hottest NFL receiver within 24 hours of each other? If you didn't have pics I'd say you were a stone cold fabricator of facts, sir!

That has got to be the best Bryant haul I have ever seen. Serious congrats coming your way! Very, very jealous!
