Tigers @ Red Sox, 9/3- Best Day of the Year!

I usually like to compare autograph seeking to fishing; it's a lot of standing around and waiting, sometimes with little or nothing to show for it.  And then there are some days, like yesterday, that make it all worthwhile.  Yesterday was definitely a season highlight for me, for both autographs and a great game to watch between Scherzer and Lester.  There was definitely an element of October in the ballpark last night.

TTM Return: David Mantle

  • David Mantle 1/1- The "Son of the Mick" signed his dad's card from the 09 Topps set, as well as a few index cards.  Even though I'll probably never complete this set, it's nice to get one done that probably wouldn't have been completed any other way.  Now I need to find a few Ryan Freel's from this set as well.  Sent 5/28 (90 days)
