Adding to any of these items signed would make my night (and give me more time at the Phanatic playground with my son)...
2009 World Series Ball
- It would be great to get either Ryan Howard or Cole Hamels on the ball. They are the last "big guys" I am missing. Luckily, both will be around a while, so I should have another chance if I don't get them this year.
2009 World Series Lithograph
- Unlike Howard and Hamels, two of the guys I need for this project are (potentially) appearing at their final Phestival. I have pulled tickets for both Chase Utley and Charlie Manuel in the past...it would be nice to add one (or both) before they leave town.
- I would be thrilled to have Chooch sign the 2008 World Series, Sports Illustrated cover (11/03/08) for me. As you may know, I have many of autographed SI covers, but don't think I'd be willing to pay in-person prices for him to sign this one.
2013 Team Ball
As part of my annual routine, anyone who I don't have something single for, will go on a team ball. I do bring balls from prior years, so there is also a little backfilling that happens, too. Some years (see 2012) were clunkers, others (2008 or 2009) provided a good base for potentially valuable collectibles. I have a team ball - originating from the Phestival - from every season back to 2001.
