Well here's the two items I got signed by them. I had been debating whether to have Paco sign a baseball or a photo & well I went with a photo. Big mistake :( I had not paid attention that paco went with a blue marker instead of silver & as a result you can hardly see the signature off to the right. Well things happen. But before him I had Bill Russell sign my team bat that I'm working on, as I'm trying to get as many players from the 1981 World Series team as I can on it. After that the next signing I had tickets for was the Ryu & Ned Colletti session.
First these are the items I got signed in my line. I had Matt Magill sign a photo for me & I had Ron Cey sign my team bat. This line took a little bit longer then expected mainly because Ron Cey ran some minutes late, but I still loved the autographs. As for how the line went for my girlfriend:
She got the ball signed with the inscription I wanted !! :) That definetly made this ball my favorite piece of the day. She also got one of the Dodger post cards they had available if you didn't have anything for the person to sign, so she got it autographed by Charlie Steiner. That was the second postcard I got that day as my father had gotten a ticket for the Fernando Valenzuela signing & had gotten a postcard from Drew Butera. Well after this signing I only had the Kenley Jansen ticket left & that was in a couple of hours. Me & my girlfriend walked around a bit & enjoyed the event. We killed those few hours & then I was in line for the final signing of the day. While I was standing in line my father called out to me saying that #7 from the Dodgers was signing autographs for fans behind the autograph booths. I knew that it
was Alex Guerrero signing but I only had one baseball left. Thankfully we saw one guy there who we've seen at previous signings who sells merchandise. We got a ball from him & well:
Great!!! I was able to pick up this ball signed by Guerrero. The signature didn't come out as clean as some of the ones he signed during his session, but I was still able to add this nice signature to the collection. While they got this signature for me, I was still in line for the Kenley Jansen signing & we had been informed that Bobby Castillo couldn't make it due to an illness & Rick Monday would be taking his place. Well I didn't mind at all since I could still use Rick's signature on my bat.
favorite pitcher from the Dodgers. I prefer him over any other bullpen guy we have, even over Brian Wilson. Especially over the likes of Brandon League, ehhh. The signature of Rick Monday on my bat can be found right next to Ron Cey's in the photo posted earlier. After all was said & done I left Fan Fest a happy camper!! I'm already looking forward to next year's & hopefully I can get season tickets & get a shot at Puig or McGwire before they sell out, assuming their still with the team. Unless I get them at some point throughout this season. Well anyways, that's my recap from Fan Fest & I hope you liked it & once again thank you for reading.
