One More Perfectly Signed Andre Dawson Baseball For The Collection!!!
I don’t want to drag this one out any longer than necessary…
A while back I attended a signing with Andre Dawson and one of the other people in line was holding an item that I had never seen before – and I knew that I had to have one. After a bit of small talk, there was no way that I was going to talk him out of the item so I just crossed my fingers and hoped that I would find one again at a later date.
Well, I searched and searched and searched some more and then it happened – on Ebay!!
It has to be the same guy that I met that afternoon as the seller was shipping from Weston, FL – the same city that the signing was held in.
So, I waited and stalked my prey – and then I ATTACKED!!!!
And today, I hold the prize.
Before the Montreal Expos franchise folded they called Puerto Rico home for an short period of time. So, Rawlings and their brilliant marketing team came out with limited edition baseballs commemorating that time in the franchise’s history.
And now I am the very, very proud owner of a baseball that commemorates that event – and it happens to be signed by my favorite baseball player of all-time!!!
Sorry – I guess I really didn’t make that long story any shorter…
Oh, and if you’re keeping track at home, this is the 7th signed ball in my Dawson collection!!! YES!!!
Thanks for reading!!!
