And now for a long post. MLB is my favorite to graph since baseball is my favorite sport, so I've been hitting the MLB teams hard here so far this season.
Yoenis Cespedes: 3/3, 1/1 11x14, 2/2 8x10s for a friend
So pumped I was able to get him on this awesome 11x14
Ryan Cook: 1/1
Kansas City Royals
The Royals were a surprisingly tough team this year. The crappy weather didn't do us any favors either.
Alex Gordon: 1/1 11x14
I love this inscription!
Another series where the weather killed us...
Brad Ausmus: 2/2 11x14s
Happy to get 1 of my favorite Astros
The Orioles were the best signing team I've done so far this season!!!
ROMLB: Adam Jones, Manny Machado, Jonathan Schoop, Nelson Cruz, Tommy Hunter, Brad Brach, and Ubaldo Jimenez
I initially only got Adam Jones on this since I didn't have anything for him, but decided to get more players when I saw them signing. This ball is for sale.
Nick Markakis: 2/2 11x14s, pic with
I'm so excited I was able to get Markakis since I've always loved watching him play.
I love this picture of his walk-off grand slam last year
I seriously love this guy! He's so nice and damn handsome! He signed every time I asked him and even apologized once when he was running late and couldn't sign. I've loved following him ever since his Astros days. Living in Iowa, I was only able to watch the Astros when they played the Cubs. I still remember watching his MLB debut at Wrigley. His name has popped up in trade rumors connected to the Astros and I would love to see that happen. Our bullpen needs all the help it can get! The printing company goofed up and printed multiple copies of 1 of my images, while not printing 3 others I wanted. Oh well...
Awesome talking with the former Astro. He continues to be one of the nicest guys in the league!
|Adam Jones and David Lough|
Traveled with the team even though he was on the DL
JJ Hardy: 1/1 8x10
Ryan Flaherty: 2/2 8x10s
Chris Tillman: 1/1 card
Steve Pearce: 1/1 card
Steve Clevenger: 1/1 card
Wei Yin Chen: 1/1 card
Seattle was another great signing team, but I completely forgot to print for them! I went to Friday's game a little empty handed and quickly realized I should print photos at Target. I had a lot of photos left over from last year, but printed around 20 at Target. Oof that was pricey!
Robinson Cano: 1/1 Yankees hat
He's 1 per and I had about 20 cards to get done by him. He'll be getting some mail from me :)
Seriously the nicest player I've met. He stopped to sign every time someone asked him!
I didn't have anything printed for him since I thought he wouldn't travel while on the DL. He is one of my favorite players and I'm so happy I got to meet him. Such a nice guy!
Super nice guy!
I've been graphing the Twins more this year and it has paid off. Joe Mauer continues to elude me, but eventually I'll get him this season!
First, I purchased the last game-used, authenticated ROMLB from the authentics shop that was used in the Astros series last year. I can't wait to get this signed.
Brian Dozier: 3/3, 2/2 11x14s, 1/1 jersey
He continues to sign like crazy! I got a custom made jersey to get signed by him. I got it signed the same day I bought it!
He signed all of these in 1 sitting! He literally stops every time you ask him to sign. Such a great guy!
