    1986 Topps Kansas City Royals project

    A few years ago, I started collecting autographs on all the 1986 Topps Kansas City Royals cards. I tracked all of them down except George Brett, Dan Quisenberry (deceased) and Dick Howser (deceased). This past week, I purchased a 1986 Topps autographed Quisenberry card. So now, I'm down to just...

    I didn't think the 1986 Topps I sent to Steve Balboni was coming back, so I made a trade for one. A couple of months later, here it is in the mail. I guess I can't complain about having two.

    Unexpected return

    I almost forgot about this one I sent out back in May. But in Monday's mail there was 3 of 3 signed by Terrell Brandon. I hate having to wait, but those are the fun successes when you're not expecting them. I also finalized a couple of trades today when I received three autographed 1986 Topps...

    Sparky Anderson?

    Starting a few months ago, Sparky Anderson requests kept coming back that he wasn't going to sign anymore. I've noticed that people keep on sending to him, and it seems he continues to keep signing them. Does anyone know if he has stopped saying he doesn't want to sign any more? I'd like his...

    George Foreman autos

    George Foreman is coming near me next week to speak at KU in Lawrence. I'm planning on attending and hoping to get his autograph, but I don't really know what to have him sign. I don't have any cards or photos of him, or magazines with him on the cover. I don't want to spend $40 on a pair of...

    Royals Fanfest Day 2

    I didn't focus as much on autographs Saturday as I was more concerned on making sure my 6-year-old son had a good time with all of the baseball activities. But I did get a few: Jorge Orta: 1985 Topps and signed my son's Kansas City Royals glove. Dennis Leonard: Team promo photo and glove. Jim...

    Woody Williams

    Woody Williams signed 1/1 in about two weeks. The signature is in blue sharpie and it smeared quite a bit though. Still, my nephew is a Cardinals fan and it will make a nice extra gift.

    Royal Blue Friday

    I was able to get in-person autos from former Kansas City Royals Willie Wilson, Willie Aikens and Kevin Seitzer as part of a free promotion to boost sales at the Royals team store. They each signed a ball, as well as cards for me and my son. They were all great guys.
