Southern Maryland Blue Crabs @ York

I went to the York game tonight to do pregame autographing of the visiting Southern Maryland Blue Crabs. I didn't have anything for him, but Brian Burres former Baltimore Oriole pitcher came up to me and asked if I had cards for him to sign? I told him I didn't and he said he was disappointed, I then explained that he had already signed all I had earlier in the year, he was cool with that! first time someone came up to me and asked if I had stuff to be signed of them. No Steve Lombardozzi tonight, I asked Cody Eppley if he traveled with the team and he said that he was sick and he wasn't in the line-up.
The following is who I got signatures from. total of 20 autographs and 9 players.
1) Tim Sexton - Ticket Stub.
2) Gustavo Molina - 4 Cards.
3) Bill Bliss - 5 Cards.
4) Gary Brown - 2 Cards.
5) Cody Eppley - a Card.

Akron @ Harrisburg

I went to the game tonight in Harrisburg to do some autographing and also to get Greg Luzinski who was a guest signer during the game.  Pregame autos were slim from Akron as I was doomed by the DL as most of the players I had didn't travel due to being on the 7-day DL (Kime, Kaminsky & Washington) and Clint Frazier didn't have time before the game. So was able to get 4 players.
Akron:
1) Eric Haase - Ticket Stub.
2) Bradley Zimmer - Ticket Stub.
3) Nelson "Nellie" Rodriguez - a Card.
4) Robbie Aviles - a Card.
Guest:
5) Grag Luzinski - 14 Cards. (Went through line 2 times).

Baltimore Ravens Flock Festival 2016

Today, I went to the Ravens Draft Day Festival They bring in Alumni, have some Current Players and Draft picks into the M&T Stadium for some activities.  There was NO adult autograph sessions as they have had in the past only scheduled sessions were for ages 4-14. Was a nice list of players would have been nice to have had a chance to get a couple of their autographs, but not at this event anymore so this will probably be the last time I pay to go as there is not a lot to do there as an adult without children.  
Here is the list of players: Joe Flacco, Jeff Blackshear, Jamal Lewis, Duane Starks, Vonta Leach, Ronnie Stanley, Jarrett Johnson, Steve Smith Sr., Tavon Young & Eric Weddle also on the radio and attended by Qadry Ismail & Brad Jackson.
I was able to get 4 of these
1) Vonta Leach - 3 Cards.
2) Qadry Ismail - 2 Cards.
3) Jarrett Johnson  - Photo.
4) Brad Jackson - 3x5.
Jarrett Johnson, Qadry Ismail & Vonta Leach Autographs
Brad Jackson & Vonta Leach Autograph plus Magnet
I knew a couple collectors that stayed outside and did better then we did inside getting Ronnie Stanley, Eric Weddle, Tavon Young, Duane Starks, Jamal Lewis and a couple others so will probably try this next year.
Also, Part of this event had there store sale the featured items were pieces of turf and piece of the goal posts that are being replaced I wanted the turf until I actually saw it the smaller pieces 2 x 2 were all green no markings in a clear plastic bag and had cut edges were just not appealing to me for $35 or $75. So I went with a piece of the goal posts for $30.
