Some More Autographed ROMLBs

Warren Spahn

Willie Mays - This is one of the few autographed baseballs I purchased off ebay. I prefer to get my autographs in person, but Mr. May's show fees are out of this world! So I bought with off ebay instead of paying the fee. It has Mr. may's own "Say Hey!" hologram along with an independant certification from PSA/DNA.

Willie McCovey - Obtained recently and shows a shakey signature.

Willie Stargell - one of my first autographs obtained in person at a Sports Show in Atlantic City in the early to mid 1980s. My dad is from Pittsburgh and this was important autograph for me to have in my collection.

My Absence from THE BLOG!

Hey fellow hobbists! It has been over a month since my last post. Pathetic. I have no excuse, except I have had little "me time" over the past month! We are having a house guest this summer from Europe, and now that the weather is nice, I have a "honey do" list a mile long! Just this morning I finished the shed I started three weeks ago! I coach T-ball, so I have that two days a week, and during spring break most of my collagues were out of the office, and I was stuck dealing with everything in their absence - can you say 12 - 14 hour work days? YUCK!

And....BASEBALL SEASON HAS STARTED! My beloved Phillies played my now home team (Washington Nationals), so I took my son Ewan to the game at Nationals Park two weeks ago. We have a GREAT FATHER/SON day! Decked out in all of our Phillies gear, we drove to Mom's office in Olde Towne Alexandria, parked, then hopped Metro to the park. When we got there, we hit the FOOD! Sausage, Peppers and Onions for the old man, a Five Guys cheeseburger ( and fries for the boy. I had the obligatory beer at the park, while Ewan and a Sprite. (Rant here, the ball parks need to have some beverage selections for kids - there were no juice selections that I saw, only carbonated, sugar filled beverages.)

I was sporting my Victorino away jersey while Ewan donned his Chase Utley home jersey while we watched the game from the visitor's side, Section 116U.

Anyway, today I am going to post some more photos of my autographed ROMLBs for your viewing enjoyment. I promise to try to make an effort to post more of my collection in the near future.
