Last week I posted a poll asking the question, "What current Phillies player's autograph do you want most?" The question was open for 10 days, and 29 total votes were cast:
Final Poll Results: What current Phillies player's autograph do you want the most?
Roy Halladay 58% (17 votes)
Hunter Pence 10% (3 votes)
Ryan Howard 6% (2 votes)
Cliff Lee 17% (5 votes)
Shane Victorino 3% (1 votes)
Jonathan Papelbon 3% (1 votes)
- Roy Halladay's near non-existent signing habits since coming to town make him a top target. He is my top guy, and am glad to see it appears he will be in a signing booth during this summer's Phillies Phestival.
- Cliff Lee is a similar case. He has not done many appearances in the area, and as a key member of the 2009 World Series team, there are several "team" items that he HAS to be part of...
- Hunter Pence's low total. It was not long ago people were fighting for the chance to hand over $90 for him to sign a baseball. Something tells me the market is still there for Hunter, even if his star has been a little dimmer during this early part of the season.
- Jonathan Papelbon. He seems like a forgotten member of this year's team. He came to town with this reputation as a character, but, so far he hasn't connected with me (or the general fan base it seems). But, let's face it - this guy is a star. I definitely expected him to have more than one vote.
After posting this question, I thought it might have been more interesting to add in a "newer" guy like Freddy Galvis. I think there is a part of the fan base who might have chosen him over the bigger names I did include. Maybe for a later poll...
