The St. Louis Cardinals were in the Burgh this weekend and I was able to graph them 2 days this weekend. I was very pleased with my results. A lot of people did not need Kolten Wong so I had some help as he is one per. I wore a shirt from his clothing line (he is one of my favorite players in MLB) and he told me "That's a sick shirt". Finally was able to get one of my white whales, Matt Carpenter. I have not been able to get him at all the past few years as he never signs and has always been tough, but I was finally fortunate enough to get him.

Tommy Pham is a piece of work. He has always been a tough get. I finally saw him signing inside one day and he signed for the guy next to me and I asked him to sign my card and he stared right at me and said "no". Brett Cecil kept on telling me "not today" on multiple occasions even when I was the only one asking for him.

I also made trades to acquire the Matt Duffy and Starin Castro balls.

Thanks for reading!

One thing I was a little shocked by was Gustavo Nunez ignoring me inside when I was the only person asking for him.

The best autograph I got was one that I won from buying a $2 raffle ticket...

Authentic David Wright signed jersey with the 2013 All Star Game Patch on the sleeve. I was so stoked to win this and It's one of my favorite autographs I got!!

Best $2 I ever spent

Thanks for reading!!

that's awesome and the Wright jersey looks sweet...

I always liked Wright and funny story...I'm a few years older than Wright and When I was a toddler, we lived in VA. My dad's best friend was a police officer and when I outgrew my Power Wheels motorcycle, my dad gave it to him for his kid. When she outgrew it, he gave it to his boss in the Police Dept's kid, who in his words "was a chubby kid who probably broke it". Well, turned out that chubby kid was David Wright. When Wright made the bigs, my dads friend got a signed 8x10 of Wright from his dad with the "inscription, To Brian Thanks for the Wheels"

Milwaukee Brewers were in town this week. I was able to take a couple days to graph these guys. I love when they come to town. One of the best signing teams in the league. I managed to get a lot of stuff done and I;m happy with my results.

My favorite item I got this series came from one of my favorite Pirates, Cutch. Thrilled with how my Gold Glove Replica turned out!!!!

Living in St. Louis and being a life-long Cards fan, Tommy Pham is one of the worst signers. He has an awful attitude and thinks he's something else. Awesome haul with the rest, and I would imagine the others weren't big jerks.
