I'm not a Pirates fan, but I am a fan of baseball memorabilia and it seems it $12 plus the cost of buying baseballs can't be beat for autographs, I believe at last year's event they had about 20 current and former players. I'll probably go on Saturday so I can have a day to rest after the long drive.

I would love to get McCutchen and maybe Burnett if he is still with the team. My Mom used to love the Pirates in the 70s and she still has an autographed picture of Willie Stargell on the wall that a friend was able to get her back when he was alive. I figure I'll go up early and take some pictures of trains in the area (my other hobby) and then hit the event and hope for some good autographs. It seems you can't beat it for the money. I'm hoping the Orioles have there fanfest here in Baltimore again instead of down in Florida so I can go to that event for the first time.
