Amazing TTM Success: Hall of Fame Manager, Sparky Anderson!!!

In just under two weeks time, Hall of Fame baseball manager, Mr. Sparky Anderson, returned my copy of ‘The Machine’ to me.  And you know what, he instantly added a great treasure to my autograph collection.

Here’s the book:

And here is Sparky’s signature as well as his message to me:

“To Brian:  Thank you for being such a great fan of the Reds,  Sparky Anderson”

Truly a class act – I am not quite sure that it gets any better than this.  A personal note from one of the greatest baseball managers of all-time.

But, I do know one way to make this even more special…

I know that it would be virtually impossible to get the entire ‘Big Red Machine’ to sign this book for me, but I should be able to add a few more autographs.  There are 3 more blank pages at the very beginning of the book – maybe they’re there for a reason.  I am starting to believe so…

Let me see what I can do with this.  I know that guys like Bench, Griffey, Rose, and Morgan may be tough but the team had more than 4 players on its roster!!!

Thank you Mr. Anderson!!  This is very special for me, and I cannot wait to sit down and read this story about one of my favorite teams of all-time.  But first I have a few more autographs to hunt for.  🙂

  1. Oh wow! That’s really nice.

    moe.

  2. That’s awesome. Congrats.

  3. Very cool. Congrats.

  4. Very nice. I had heard that Mr. Anderson wasn’t signing anymore due to health reasons. A personalized note is much better than just a signature. It would be a cool long-term project to get as many guys as possible to sign the book. 🙂
