I’m Taking That Ball That Yogi Wouldn’t Sign And Am Sending It To…

I’m Taking That Ball That Yogi Wouldn’t Sign And Am Sending It To…

… well, you’ll just have to wait and see.  But, what I can guarantee is that this time it will come back signed!!!

I have finally gotten over the fact that Yogi Berra did not want to sign my baseball, or take my donation of $50.  So, I will do what any aggressive autograph collector would do – I’m moving on.

The baseball has been packed up, a new letter has been written, envelopes have been addressed, and stamps have been applied.  On my way to work, Yogi’s rejected baseball is going out for a second try.

Stay tuned as I hope to have something to show for my efforts very soon!!

Wish me luck.  Thanks!!

Forever stamps are a collector’s best friend!!  Huh, what kind of cryptic message is that, you ask?  Well, I sent two baseball cards to Dusty Baker in hopes of obtaining his autograph in one of my through the mail adventures – during Spring Training of 2010!!

Yep, almost a year to the day, 358 days to be exact, is what it took.  But I am not complaining.  Oh no, how can you complain when the prize is this:

Nice, huh?  Baker is a great personality for the sport of baseball.  One of the things that I like most about how he handles the job is that he does not let the star players alter his approach to the game.  He has managed some of the greatest players and egos within the last 10+ years, but Dusty is Dusty – and that is admirable!!

Thank you for the great autographs Mr. Baker!!!

Throwing 5 Baseballs In The Mail Tomorrow Morning…

Throwing 5 Baseballs In The Mail Tomorrow Morning…

The title of this post says it all.  Tomorrow morning on my way to dropping of my older son to school we will make a quick detour and head to the automated postal machine at our neighborhood United States post office.

Into the mailstream will go 5 Rawlings Official Major League baseballs….

I won’t tell you who I’m sending them to…  And I won’t tell you what zip code they’re going to….

What I will tell you is that these 5 baseballs are going out in search of autographs.  And when they’re returned to the confines of my home, I will unveil the results to you.

Wish me luck!!!

Stay tuned.
