Got autographs from Dexter Manley, Tom Motte, Roger Wehrli, Chris Hoiles, and Tippy Martinez today. Everyone of them has been nice and talk to the crowd. Chris Hoiles was even shaking everyone's hand after he signed. When he was just sitting down, he saw me with my camera and did a hilarious cheese face.
I bought a Whitey Ford autograph ball today and some A-Rod and Jeter cards from the 25 cent and 50 cent box. Man that is hard work pulling cards and making sure they are not part of your 1,113 you already own! I have my eye on Robinson Cano and Yogi Berra autograph jerseys.
Too bad Jim Palmer cancelled on me, but I am looking forward to Steve Carlton tomorrow as well as the other freebies.

Also, does it seem possible I could get in line for Topps while someone else went to a booth to purchase a BP box then bring it to me or do they not let you in line unless you have one. Do they count and tell people after 100 to not even waste their time and get out of line?
