Eagles Training camp

On Saturday My son and I went to the Eagles training camp this was a closed practice at the Novacare Center.  My Niece works for the Eagles and was able to get a couple of passes to this event we were in the Corporate Partners tent had some good food from Chickie's & Pete's (Cheesesteaks, fries. pretzels, etc.) the practice was from about 11:30-1:45.  Was interesting high temp practice with music which would be as expected with a Chip Kelly offense.  After practice 2 players (Bradley Fletcher & Chris Maragos) came to sign autographs and take pictures.  I was hoping since it was the 1st day of practice and we were in the corp tent to get a big name but that was not to be.  We got both players to sign the training cam program and 3x5's and Eric got pictures with Fletcher and Maragos and then on the way out he had his picture with Cary Williams & Brad Smith.

A trade and purchase

A friend that I collect with Ralph was looking to get rid of some of the autographs he has been collecting over the years he is narrowing his collecting wants and needs so I took a look at what he had and will probably at some point purchase the whole collection from him.  But for today, I had 32 autographed cards he wanted and I picked out 201 autographs he had in his binders so the final tab was $43 and the 32 cards for the 201. So that comes out to if you figure 1 for 1 on 32 cards he took, a little more then .25 a card for the other 169 cards.  The big one was a Vladimir Guerrero 2000 Fleer Tradition card.  see the pictures below for the rest. A couple of the other bigger names are Torii Hunter, Gary Templeton, Victor Martinez & Livan Hernandez.

Chantilly, VA card show 7/12/14

Autographed Cards from the show
Free Manziel card & 2013 Topps Mini Golds each #'d to 62
Assorted #'d cards & Guillen Jersey
Mike and I went to the card show on Saturday is quite a hall from York, Pa about 2 hours I probably would not have gone on my own since wasn't interested in any of the autograph guest because didn't need them or didn't want to pay the price being asked for them. But Mike was going for Carl Erskine so figured I'd tag along.  Show was $8 to enter and spent another $26 on cards got about 90 cards total some autographs some #'d and just some cards for future autographs from the Atlantic league a few are already signed on Sat. and Sun. The Carlos Guillen Jersey was a dime along with the 2013 Topps Gold Mini's each #'d XX/62. Love the dime box finds.

Sgt. Slaughter @ York Revs

One of the Revolutions promotions this year is to bring in some celebs tonight's was WWE Hall of Famer Sgt. Slaughter (2 8x10's & 3 Cards).  He threw out the first pitch and then moved to the concourse for some autographs and pictures the big guy couldn't have been nicer signed everything and posed for pictures with anyone who wanted one.  Also, So. Maryland was in town had cards of a few players but with the timing of Sgt. Slaughter was only able to get Anthony Slama (4 Cards) & Eduardo Morlan (3 Cards).
