I havent posted in this area in a long time even though I've been busy getting plenty of guys IP at games and events, but a member here asked if I'd share my experience. I took a mini vacation to hit up the all-star festivities in San Diego last week. Went to the fanfest every day, left early on Sunday and Tuesday because I went to the futures game and wanted to watch the red carpet parade for the first time. I got pretty much every guy I was shooting for. I would've liked to have gotten Gary Sheffield but he was only signing on sunday night when I wasnt there. Otherwise it was nice to get some guys I had never gotten before, and all have the MLB Authentic hologram on the back of them. The only ones not authenticated are the Jeff Nelson, Jack Morris, and Pedro Martinez because I got them as they were walking around. Also got a bunch of freebies, might make some available for trade. Topps was giving out some nice oversize cards(I think they measure around 11" x 16". Everything I got signed I brought with me. The photos are 11x14s. Dravecky had never seen that photo before and loved it so I'm going to give him a copy(he lives 2 miles from me). Also have some extra futures game programs that I would be willing to trade. I got some good pics at the parade as well as some pictures with players I didnt get autos of(tim raines, etc).
