Another Return After a Long Wait

After receiving a return from Jack Fisher after over 1000 days earlier this month, today I received another surprise in the mailbox.

Gene Alley signed his 1968 and 1972 Topps after 875 days.  The 1972 Topps is a little smudged, but not too bad.

It's fun to get these back after such a long time and after assuming they're never coming back.

This weekend is TwinsFest but I've decided not to go.  It's a lot of work and pretty exhausting, not to mention it can be expensive depending on how many autographs you get. 

The only autograph I will probably regret not getting is Jim Kaat.  I have a 1964 Western Oil print I"d like to have signed by him.  But it was announced that he's joined the Twins' organization as a special assistant or something, so maybe I'll have more chances coming up.

If you went to TwinsFest, please comment and let me know how it went.  I have missed my annual opportunity to say hi to Steve, Randy and Zane.
