Hey guys. I just got back after a 17 hour drive from Arizona last night. The trip was well worth it tho because i got a ton of stuff autographed and I completed a lot of things that I needed to complete. If you ever have a chance to go to Spring Training....GO! It was amazing. Here is what i got from ST...Oh but 1st, it occurred to me that I had never posted a picture of my J.J. Putz from before I left so here that is:

J.J. Putz 2/2 c/o White Sox ST (I think it was about 2 weeks or so)

Here are the Spring Training photos (In no particular Order):

I finally got my Milton Bradley that I've been trying to get for almost 2 years to complete my 08 All Star Ball (already had Hamilton, Young, and Kinsler)

If you see anything you would like of mine, I can find something that I can use that is expendable. I'm jealous of that Young/Hamilton/Kinsler card, very awesome!

Rofl.)

Dude, Nolan Ryan?! Did you catch him around the park or was there an organized signing?

Did you see Mickey Tettleton at all? Or Ruben Sierra... they were supposed to be there as instructors. Sierra might not have been there til today.

Thanx guys!

I just happened to catch Nolan when he was leaving a 'B Game' and he was about to get on his golf cart when someone called him over and people mobbed him. I was fortunate enough to be at the front of the mob and he signed 4 or 5 when some kid handed him a glove and ball point pen. If there is anything I've learned from getting autographs, it's that being nice usually helps ur cause, so I lent him my Sharpie and Nolan signed the glove and immediately signed my card and then I nearly got killed trying to get out. I have never been squeezed like that trying to get an auto.I couldn't even get out for people trying to get in. But it was all worth it. :D

No I didn't happen to see Sierra or Tettleton. Rusty told us that there were going to be different guest instructors every week so they must have beenthis week or something.

Wow, very impressive.
I am going to the Cub vs Padres this Saturday.
Haven't decided on weather to bring cards. Not really into autos.
I only have about a 20 minute drive.:D

That's the only Choo I've got and Hamilton is who I collect so I think I'm going to hang on to those but the Feliz and Smoak customs are available.
Let me know if you're interested. :D

Are you talking about the UDX? I could be FT i guess but I wasn't really planning on moving it. But I do have 2 others just like it that i got last season.

If you have another base card like that you would wanna trade then we can work something out that way too :) I have that Hamilton bat card for you too so we can work out some kinda deal. I will check it out and message ya and see what I can try to pry out of ya. Did you ever get Strop or did I just miss those?
