Here's what I've got over the past week.



Barry Switzer 2/2:
Jay Tibbs 1/1:
Brian Dorsett 1/1:
Daniel Sedin 4/4:

A little disappointed in the pen on the Sedin cards, but I'll take what I can get.

I sent a request with 2 cards to Bill Krisher, and he added in extras, and wrote a nice note back. Great return from him.

Bill Krisher 4/2:




Great returns this past week for me.

Total: 138-400 on the year
8-10 HOF on the year

Been over a month since I've posted here. I've had some family problems, but I think we're all good now. I have already put my TTM returns from then away. We are going to say 8 autographs, which will put me at 150 auto's on the year to now.

Total: 150-400

This will be a lengthier post, as I want to explain the potential signing habits for the Mud Hens this year for you all.

That brings us to today, the first graphing day of the year for me. The weather was....... terrible. 35 degrees, 25 mph winds, and a rain/slush/snow mixture. I wanted to do the Red Sox, but with no one else on that side, and the fact I hadn't really studied faces for them, I decided to stick with the Hens, where there were 5 people, and I knew most of the Mud Hens. The weather prevented the players from coming out early. Although I don't typically do pre/postgame, I'm going to hopefully do it more this year. Here is my recap.



Dawel Lugo: 0-3. He will be tough this year it appears, ignored us coming out, and doesn't seem to be a willing signer.

Mike Gerber: 0-3. Said he would get us after the game, but I wasn't sticking around today due to weather. Could be tough.

Pete Kozma: 0-3. Could be tough, doesn't seem to be a willing signer.

I don't want to judge these guys to quick just due to the weather today. Here are the successes.

Grayson Greiner 2/2: Grayson was a great guy, talked to us for a minute. I only had these 2 as of now, if you need anything, hit me up.

Phillippe Aumont 3/3: He signed for us, and did all 3 for me.

Jeff Pico 3/3: Pico is sometimes tough to get, but he took the time to sign 3 for me today.

My personal favorite of the day:

Victor Alcantara 2/3: Signed a Bowman and a Heritage Minors. Last year he was 1-per when he was in Toledo, and his autograph wasn't as nice. This year, he is doing no dupes, but signing multiples, and his auto looks nicer. The HM is for jaydub.

Overall, won't complain about 10 autographs on the first game of the year considering weather wasn't the best. And I also got 2 foul balls since I had the upper deck to myself.

160-400 on the year.

Whoops, forgot to add pictures of the actual autographs.






Looking forward, I was hoping to go today, but the weather just isn't looking good at all. If they aren't going to play the game, which is what it sounds like, not looking good for autos. I'll be away from Tuesday-Friday, so I doubt I'll get back this week. Sadly, they don't have another home game until the 27th, but that's when Nick Senzel and the Louisville Bat come through. I'll be chasing Senzel then.

Aumont, the true International League legend. Seems like he's been kicking around the IL forever. Toledo actually has a pretty decent roster this year in terms of guys with cards.

Hopefully Senzel will still be in AAA by then. If he is, plan on putting in some time to get him. Dude is a real winner when it comes to signing.

Daniel Palka: 2
Chris Volstad: 2
Chris Beck: 1
Charlie Tilson: 1
Gregory Infante: 1
Jacob May: 2
Patrick Leonard: 2
Nate Jones: 2
T.J. House: 2

That brings me to: 178-400 on the year.

Thanks again!

Louisville Bats @ Toledo Mud Hens.

This is all inside, didn't wind up doing pregame or postgame today, was a busy day.

Nick Senzel injured his wrist during the game. Didn't look good, fully extended in a dive, and his wrist got planted in the ground. His body kept going, his wrist didn't, and it rolled over on him. He was in immediate agony and walked off the field quickly. However, my buddy who is a local news reporter has told me it appears to only be jammed according to a postgame report. Hopefully that's the case.

Onto the auto's, again, all these are from inside.


Dick Schofield 3/3
Patrick Kivlehan 3/3 (Great guy)
Tyler Goeddel 2/2
Stuart Turner 1/2 (Awesome looking auto)


Bull Durham 1/3 (Heard he was tough, so glad to be able to get his auto)
Brandon Dixon 2/2 (Very nice)
D.J. Peterson 1/3
Blake Trahan 3/3

Nick Senzel 0/1 (Said he only signs on the first game of the series, I've also heard he only signs outside of the stadium.)

196-400 on the year after the 16 from today.


With a busy schedule coming up, I won't be able to make it back out to the stadium for about 3 weeks. Yikes. However, that's the next weekend series, and I'm very busy balancing school, baseball, and umpiring. If anyone has anything they need for Gwinnett, or Norfolk, let me know, as they are the next teams coming through.

Went to the Hens game last nights, inside only. I'll be back today for what should be a good day. Yesterday was rough, as I got in 50 minutes before game time, and the gates opened 90. I got stuck in some traffic, so didn't wind up in my usual spot. However, I still managed to get 9, which isn't terrible considering I was stuck down the line.



Rob Brantly 1/3

Really nice guy. "Rob, do you have time to sign" He looked at his imaginary watch, and replied "Nope", but came over nonetheless.

It was a scary moment at the ballpark, as he went unconscious after taking a foul tip below the belt. Postgame reports are saying he is in good spirts, and should be okay, wishing nothing but the best for him.

Rio Ruiz 1/1
Peter Bourjos 1/3
Austin Riley 1/3
Damon Berryhill 2/3
Phil Gosselin 3/3

Overall I'm happy, especially glad to get Riley. Gwinnett signed for the most part, however, all of the above limit with the exception of Gosselin.

Total: 205-400 on the year


I'll be back at it tonight!

What. A. Day.

This year, I have the season ticket package. Well, not really, but the 18 game plan counts as season tickets. Therefore, I get to go to the season ticket holder autograph day. That was a 45 minute session where I was able to get everyone. I also got some guys pregame, and all in all had an amazing day. Here is a final tally. Keep in mind I did have a helper.


Dawel Lugo: 9


Drew VerHagen: 6
Muddy: 2
Muddonna: 2


Harold Castro: 9


Jarrod Saltalamacchia: 9


Christian Stewart: 11


Victor Alcantara: 9


Johnny Barbato: 9


Ronny Rodriguez: 4
Phillippe Aumont: 4


Jim Adduci: 4
Mark Montgomery: 1

Montgomery was the only guy I had a problem with. Me and my dad managed to get 1 card signed throughout the day by him. Everyone else we either got a ton, and/or finished our stuff.



And you know I love these customs. Around 30 total here. These just look great in person.

All in all I wound up with........ 109 Amazing day

Total: 314-400 on the year. Looking good for this goal

I'll be back for Norfolk on Friday and Saturday

Well, I heard that Jeimar Candelario may be there for the Hens on rehab, so I decided to head over there today. It didn't go well. I didn't see him, so either he stayed in the clubhouse, as he didn't play, or already got called up. Based on the hope he was there, I tried to graph the Hens.

On the bright side, the Hens got the team sets in last night, and they go out for sale today. I'm graphing the Norfolk Tides today, but hope to start working on those team sets really soon. If anyone would like a team set, I'm willing to pick one up for you.

Enough rambling, onto the results.



Jarrod Saltalamacchia 1/3 (TripleCrown)
Christian Stewart 1/3 (TripleCrown)
Dawel Lugo 1/3
Bill Cartwright 1/1 TTM in about 2 weeks.

The main problem with the 1-per from these guys is I brought 3 cards each, so I don't really control which one they sign when they go one per. From now on, I think I'll just bring one each for them.

Looking forward to a fun few weeks coming up! I'll be back tonight going for Norfolk!

I appreciate the help! Jeimer was activated on Friday afternoon, I guess they wanted him back for the start of the series. Don't think anyone expected him back that early.

Chad Huffman
Edwin Espinal
Jim Adduci
Jason Krizan
Mark Montgomery

Pete Kozma (Not pictured)


I only need 7 more for the team set. 2 are coaches, 1 has since retired, and 4 are up in the big leagues.


Mike Gerber 3/3
Victor Alcantara 2/2
Harold Castro 1/1
Mark Montgomery 1/1 (Not a fan of his auto) ( jaydub )


Pete Kozma 2/2! (One for a buddy, one for jaydub)

Also grabbed 2 guys from Louisville
Dick Schoefield 1/1

Also got this Stewart done for TripleCrown



I'll be out of town next time they're home, but there is a chance I'll be back on the 26th. If not, off until July 3rd, when Columbus comes to town. Can't wait for that!
