Cooperstown, 1998

When I was about 13 years old, I went to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown for the first time. I went for many years, but 1998 was the only time I had the chance to participate in a special autograph signing during Induction Weekend. In addition to having your own personal "plaque" signed, you also received a signed HOF plaque postcard from each of the participants. I never saw this event again, as I heard that collectors were trying to buy the cards off of children. It's a shame that this event no longer takes place, but it brings back great memories.

Does anyone else have one of these, or has anyone else even seen one of these?
