Great Moments in Sports... TTM Ideas?

Hey guys, I was pumped a few days ago to add one of my favorite sports memories to my collection of famous sports moments (all 16x20 photographs) - El Presidente's Perfect Game. I've got a bunch so far, most of them IP at signings. The Dennis Martinez photo was the 2nd I got TTM, the other being Bobby Thomson. I was just wondering if you guys have any other ideas on who I could try to get TTM? There are alot of iconic moments that have iconic photos that go along with it, but of course if the athlete is super famous or the "moment" made them super famous, they may be tough to get TTM. So I'm looking for someone who's a good bet to sign TTM and does have a famous moment under his or her belt.

Here's what I got so far (most of these are very "Canadian", but... a) I am Canadian so they are in my interests and b) these are the guys signing in my area)

Dennis Martinez - Montreal Expos

Al Kaline AKA Mr. Tiger and Willie Horton are great signers. You can also get 84 WS Champs manager Sparky Anderson, just a couple of ideas for you.

A friend of mine has an 8x10 of George Brett screaming at Tim McClellan after the pine tar incident. He's had it signed by Brett and McClellan. It's pretty awesome. (These were IP, not TTM).

Those look amazing! Maybe you could try doing most of the recent perfect games. As far as I know, most of them are very good signers. Congrats on some amazing looking items! I'm jealous! :)

1.) Bob Watson scoring baseball's 1- millionth run in 1975
2.) Any photo from any milestone, such as anyone of Nolan Ryan's 7 no hitters, Pete Rose's hit to pass Cobb, 3,000 hits from Brett, Winfield, Yount, Biggio, Aaron, Mays, Musial, Gwynn, etc.

Thanks for all the suggestions guys... some good ones in there. More football or basketball ideas would be cool too.... as you can see I'm heavy on hockey and baseball.

How about Franco Harris? is he a TTM guy? "The Immaculate Reception" might be a cool one.
