Default IP Autographs in Dallas Area

I've been killing it this summer with IP sigs on baseballs. First, these three from last night's Rays vs Rangers. Missed out on Longoria and Zobrist by one person, but happy nonetheless.

Grant Balfour (Tampa Bay Rays)


Drew Smyly (Tampa Bay Rays)


Miles Mikolas (Texas Rangers)


Last week, I also went to see the Frisco RoughRiders and got two Rangers top prospects, Joey Gallo and Jorge Alfaro.

Joey Gallo Futures Game ball signed with MVP


Joey Gallo SS


Jorge Alfaro


Will post more soon.

Very nice. We're the rays sigs inside the stadium?

Yeah they were signing before the game yesterday. There was no BP so only pitchers were out there

Great job with Balfour, Gallo and Smyly. You can always send Zobrist a ROMLB if you wanted to, I guess.

That Gallo Futures Game ball is a beauty. Congrats on the cool stuff!

Joey is an absolute boss!! When I met him at the Rangers ST this past spring he was surprisingly not a huge dick like anticipated.

Gallo was super cool, made sure he signed for everyone that wanted one. Kept coming back to the wall if anyone called for him pregame. Had no problem signing the futures ball with inscription and signed the second ROMLB sweetspot. Alfaro was cool too, as it was his first AA game and he is killing it right now. I look forward to seeing them in the pros. I want to get cards for them to sign before the season is over...

A few more in person.

Chris Parmelee (Minnesota Twins)


Eduardo Escobar (Minnesota Twins)


Dan Robertson (Texas Rangers)


and I got Texas Rangers catcher Robinson Chirinos at a Whataburger event.


More to come.

Wow, what a beautiful Springer signature. That may be the nicest example of his I've ever seen.

Yeah, I've noticed a lot of longer Springer autos, both IP and certified (i.e. Topps Finest).

Awesome job!

I was pretty stoked getting Springer and Altuve. I may be a Rangers fan but the Astros are getting some great players.

Ok so I have a question about the Bowman Platinum cards. I have been reading about prepping cards for autographs. I got a base Gallo and Chrome variant and was going to get them signed next week. I keep reading to baby powder or eraser the chrome Gallo before I get it signed or use a different brand of sharpie. New to all of this And I'm sure it's been posted somewhere on this forum but any advice from you veterans? Any help will be appreciated.

I prep with an eraser. take 10 seconds a card and works like a charm. I tried the baby powder thing but it was messy.
