    Photos of you and players

    Does anyone else collect pictures of them with the players they meet, and then get the photos signed? It's something I love to do, I have about 25 signed and about another 25 still to try and get signed. If you do, show off your faves here, I'll start with one of my faves and the fun story behind it in the next post.

    I love this one because of the pose he struck when he saw my tat and how much he really liked it. This was at the first book signing of his I went to, and I loved the pic so much, I printed it out and went to a second book signing. Not that I needed another book, but damn I wanted that pic signed!! Well, I waited and waited and was next up and showed the pics to the girl who was helping, and told her I wanted the pic signed and RA could have the double if he wanted it. Well she slid my book to him and said "this guy wanted to show you these pictures" umm no, I wanted them signed, so I responded " actually I was hoping he would sign them" She went on to tell me he wasn't signing anything but the books, so as he signed my book I was talking to her, and she finishes with, "oh but he's nice". Well what the hell did that mean? I grabbed my book disappointed about the picture, and after a few steps thinking bout what she said, he's nice, I realized, the picture! I opened the book, and there it was, signed for me by RA. Long story, but I thought it was cool, hope you guys do too, and show off your pics, I'll show off some more if this thread takes off a little.

    This is the one I was telling you about, unsigned as of yet, from a bar opening he did, I don't remember where, but I heard the place is closed already, haha. He was absolutely bombed already, as this pic was taken as he was leaving the place.

    This was taken in September of '97. Daulton was traded to the Marlins at the deadline and the last series of the season was the Marlins/Phillies at the Vet. I remember my mom crying when he came out for no apparent reason other than her being a mom. The other cool thing about this day was that I got Scott Rolen's auto waiting for Dutch to come out of the locker room.

    As a doofy 11 year old, I got to meet one of my alltime favorite players, Jim Fregosi. He had just signed on as manager of the Angels and was appearing at a Patio/Fireside shop in Anaheim.

    My mom took my picture with him and he signed a baseball for me.

    A couple years ago, as a doofy 44 year old, I sent a copy of the pic to him TTM to sign. Great memories of that day back in 79.
