Autographs
« on: May 03, 2021, 01:03:01 PM »

What's the most prized autograph(s) you have got? Mine is from perhaps the two greatest players in Detroit sports history from the oldest two teams in town.

I've a baseball card somewhere at my parents' house signed by Ryne Sandberg.  That's the only famous autograph I have.  The only reason I have it is that my dad's third cousin (or something) used to clean his off-season house.

Got both of the one's I have when I met each of them in person. I met Kaline at a hotel in Toronto when he was broadcasting for the Tigers and met Howe at a book signing event. I was still a kid pretty much when I got them so it was a major thrill to meet both of them. I also have met Joe Schmidt but don't have his autograph. Plus I have a Ken Griffey, Jr. rookie card, getting that autographed would be cool since I grew up watching him play and remember his early years quite well.

Pedro Feliciano signed my Mets hat. I tried to get him to sign my Yankees hat but he wasn't in the autograph queue the one game I attended where he was on the roster.

I won a trivia contest and the prize was a signed Sounders jersey with the 2019 cup-winning team's autographs, plus a bonus shirt with autographs from Borussia Dortmund's squad (who played the Sounders in a friendly that summer).

I need to get them framed eventually.

Had a ball signed by Meadowlark Lemon...but the stupid marker he used faded and rubbed away even with it just sitting around.

I have a yearbook from my school that was signed by Jason Richardson who graduated from the same high school as me two years after me. So I guess I have that one too. It was a highlight watching him play in high school there was another big guy playing for Arthur Hill named DeAndre Hullet but he never made it anywhere.

Maybe one of our sports players will make the big leagues.

I had a crew member of a TIV (tornado intercept vehicle) sign his autograph at a gas station, because I thought he might be more famous than he actually was.

I have a Houston Rockets basketball autographed by Chandler Parsons (a forward who probably no one remembers anymore).

Somewhere around my parents' house I have a stack of autographed glossy headshots of random Oklahoma City meteorologists I got at the state fair in the 90s. If there's a Gary England in there, it might be worth something, but I think they were mostly from KFOR and I doubt anyone wants an autographed photo of Mike "you need to drive directly into the tornado" Morgan.
