1974 Topps Oakland Athletics Team Card

1974 Topps Oakland Athletics Team Card

I am a big fan of the early 1970’s Oakland A’s team – from Reggie to Rollie to Rudi to Bando to Campaneris, I like that squad a lot.

And I really like how they dominated the early part of the decade.

I bought this card to see if I could find Reggie Jackson hiding among his teammates.

My eyesight is not what it used to be (getting old, I guess), but I believe that is Reggie in the first seat in Row one…

Balls From Cooperstown!!!

Balls From Cooperstown!!!

Just a few days after the 2011 Baseball Hall of Fame inductions were done, a nice package was found at my front door when arriving hom from a long day of work.

I took part in a signing that was hosted by The Fergie Jenkins Foundation, and the two baseballs that I sent were now back home.

And now, I am ready to show them off to you!!

Ball #1 was signed by 3-time World Series Champion and multi-time All-Star, Bert Campaneris.

I opted for a pretty sweet inscription too:

Ball #2 was signed by none other than my favorite pitcher of all-time, Hall of Famer Ferguson Jenkins.  This is now my third Fergie ball, and this one features a pretty sweet inscription too:

Not to bad, huh?

A HUGE ‘Thank You to the Fergie Jenkins Foundation for hosting this event.  I cannot wait to see what you have coming up next…

‘On The Road With psugator02’ – April 1, 2010

‘On The Road With psugator02′ – April 1, 2010

Rockies at Cubs
Mesa, Ariz.
10:30 a.m.-4 p.m.

All of the Rockies I thought would sign did. A few surprises on the Cubs’ side, however.

Dexter Fowler: 2/2 (8x10s)..as nice as could be though insisted on personalizing. A far cry from his behavior in NYC. I guess no one likes getting mobbed. Told him that his graph has changed a lot from when he was in high school. “That’s the way it goes.”
Ian Stewart: 2/2 (8x10s)….Very polite. I apologized for the quality of the photos but he flattered me by saying that they were good
Jason Giambi: 0/1..I was waiting near the Rockies’ dugout. Of course the few he signed were near the Cubs’ dugout.
Ubaldo Jimenez: 2/2 (’09 Ginters)…real nice guy
Miguel Olivo: 1/1 (2006 Marlins’ team photo)…I told him that I’ve been chasing him for a while. I think he interpreted the word “chase” incorrectly. “I don’t mean it like that,” I said.
Alfonso Soriano: 1/1 (’08 Ginter)…Another grapher had a color canvas and traded it to Soriano for a mint bat. The bat looked incredible, the sig even better
Aramis Ramirez: 1/1 (’08 Ginter)…I guess he’s difficult here in Arizona. I got lucky
Derrek Lee: 0/1 while on his way to the player parking lot in a golf cart, 0/1 while leaving the player lot in his car
Ryan Theriot: 2/2 (’09 Ginters)…nice kid
Ryan Dempster: 2/2 (’09 Ginters)…told him how much he is missed in South Florida
Lou Piniella: 0/1 postgame despite only two other graphers being there. “I gotta go.”
Troy Tulowitzki: 0/1 did not even acknowledge me
Todd Helton: 0/1 did not even acknowledge me…the few he signed were for little kids
Fukudome: 0/1
Bob Brenly: 2/2 (cards)…real nice

Other: No sign of Billy Williams, Ryne Sandberg, or Greg Maddux. Gonna try for the latter two tomorrow at the minor-league complex. … Fergie Jenkins, Tommy Davis, Bert Campaneris, George Foster and a few others were all signing behind home plate. I didn’t care about any of them other than Fergie but I wasn’t going to pay $20-per. … A big thank-you to Tony, a local grapher, for showing me the ropes in Mesa, in addition to a few of the other parks. You’re a good dude.
