I plead Guilty. I am hooked. And my mailman is not going to be too pleased with the extra weight he’s got to carry around…
11 more autograph requests have been mailed. I have been on a nice little hit streak lately so I didn’t want to let up. I have a shrinking stack of cards that I want to send out for autographs, but my stack of signed cards is multiplying in quantity. I don’t consider this to be too bad of a trade-off…
The Guys: Don Zimmer, Steve Sax, Frank Viola, Mark Gubicza, John Olerud, Dave Henderson, Tim Raines, Cecil Cooper, Tim Brunansky, Lou Whitaker, and Lance Parrish.
Wish me luck!!!
