RIP "Mr. Cub" Ernie Banks

It's a sad day when the baseball world loses one it's truly great people as it is today with the passing of Hall of Famer Ernie Banks.  I was an eleven year old boy at the 1976 little league world series, I was there with my family as we walked around the grounds we saw a group being escorted by police my dad said go ask them to sign your ball, So I did these would be the first autographs I would collect and the beginning of my life long hobby.  RIP "MR. Cub".  see below the ball Ernie signed for me along with Bill Shea ( Mets Shea Stadium) & Pete McGovern (Little League) .  In his honor "Let's play two" today!

2012 Leaf Young Stars Football Autographs

I purchased a box of this off of ebay for less the $10 and with a stated 2 autos per box figured why not boxes have 20 packs with 6 cards per.  The interesting thing was that when I opened the box and took the packs out there was 2 autographs in penny sleeves rigid holders and a team bag?  would have thought they would have been random in packs.
So the 2 autographs are:
1) Greg Childs who was drafted in the 4th round by the Minnesota Vikings in 2012.
2) Nick Dawson who is currently a linebacker for the Louisville Cardinals.

Stuart Scott



This morning we lost Stuart Scott as his long time battle with cancer ended at the age 49,  As I just turned 49 myself this one hits home, life is short live it.  I met Stuart a couple times at games and he always seemed pleasant and in a good mood with a great outlook on life.  The following are a couple pictures of Stuart and the autograph I got back in 2008.  RIP "Boo-Yah!"
