    I've tried having David Cameron do a private signing with him at about $50 per, which he finally reluctantly agreed to. Then, he gets the items and refuses and mails them and the money back (He had a check for over $400 in his hands).

    Then, finally, last month, I find out that a co-worker has family in his hometown and by chance, they share the same financial guy. He's sure he can get it. Barranca freaks on him and goes nuts and refuses. So, I give up."

    The post is from a guy working on an all-time Royals roster and says Barranca is the biggest hurdle from finishing the all-time roster. Someone else posted that they heard Barranca was a willing signer during his minor league days.
    I joined sportsgraphing.com a few days ago because I saw a post about a Barranca signing, probably the one described in your post.
    Oh well, I'm so jealous from a friend that bought one a long time ago. This one will be a real though one.
    Who really refuses $400? He played 67 games in MLB over four seasons (79-82) and 11 season of minor league ball during 1975 and 1982. I hope he's doing well in what he's doing right now, because he couldn't have made a lot from baseball. He also played winter ball here, but in those times there wasn't a lot of money to make.
    I'd like to research more about his career, find a reason why he could have ended so angry at baseball and become, I know it sounds harsh, but it's true, so embittered.

    Looked on SCN, last attempts listed a York, PA address which is surprising to me, I live an hour from York. There is a guy on my adult baseball team that lives in York (only lived there about 2 years), I'll shot him an email to see if he knows anyone who might know of him.

    Thanks a lot, I'll keep my fingers crossed as you never know in what mood you may find a person in a certain day
    And yes, I've seen from several sources that he's living in York. I would really appreciate your effort.

    These players have such excellent looking signatures, much better than the American players.

    Re: Mega Post: Mexican born players autograph collection 107/113

    Well, since I made this post there' been two new Mexican players:

    112. Francisco Rodriguez (not the Venezuelan closer of the Mets)

    113. Fernando Salas


    Still, missing:
    * Marcelino Solis: 1958 Cubs
    * Miguel Puente: 1970 Giants
    * German Barranca: 1979-82: Royals and Reds
    * Alfredo Aceves: 2008-10 Yankees
    * Francisco Rodriguez: 2010 Angels

    Please let me know if you have any leads. You'll be rewarded.

    Thanks

    No problem. Barranca has really gone dark about baseball. Several team collectors from the Royals are having trouble with him also.
