Les Straker Bobblehead

Here's a picture of the Les Straker bobblehead I got signed today.  He seemed surprised to see the bobblehead.  I'm guessing he hasn't signed a lot of these.

Well that happened quickly

Even though I was way back in line, I ended up getting to go to the front of the line since I was just getting one item signed.

There was a small card show.  I piked up a Sports Illustrated from 1976 with Reggie Jackson on the cover for $2, as well as a few 1954 Topps for $2 each.  I also picked up a 1987 Topps set for a friend for $5.

20 minutes in, still haven't moved

They claim everyone will get through in an hour, but one - third through the event and the line hasn't moved. 

Waiting in line for Straker

It seems a little chaotic, but it should start soon.  There are over 20 people signing so it will bee interesting to see how this goes.

A Couple 1963 Topps From Ebay

It's been very slow for TTM requests for me.  I haven't sent any and I haven't received any.

I did recently purchase a couple 1963 Topps from Ebay including Sam McDowell and Ken Berry on the White Sox team card.

I'm going to a 1987 Twins signing on Saturday to get Les Straker on his 1987 World Series Bobblehead.  After I get that one signed, I just have Don Baylor to get complete the set (Puckett and Niekro passed away before the set was released).

1965 Topps Lou Clinton

I looked at how I'm doing against my goals for the year and noticed I hadn't added a single 1965 Topps to my set yet this year.  My goal was to add five more.

I looked around on Ebay and found a nice Lou Clinton card signed and PSA authenticated.

I have quite a ways to go on my goals.  I'll post an update in a while.
