Dick Butkus

My son got me an Ebay gift card for my birthday.  So I used it and a little bit of cash for this 1995 Collector's Edge Time Warp 8x10 Dick Butkus autograph to add to the HOF auto collection Dick becomes my 238th autograph in the collection so a little over 2/3 of all football HOFers.

Greg Lewis (Lost for 7 years)

Yesterday my wife handed me a PWE didn't think anything of it until she told me she found it in a folder and I looked at the date on the envelope and it was from Oct 23 2014....... Mark this one up to the things you find when you move.... So opened not knowing what it was as had no remembrance of missing something from 7 years ago and was pleasantly surprised to find a Greg Lewis Philadelphia Eagles 2006 Topps autograph # T-GL.  No idea if this was a trade, purchase or RAK..... but like adding it to the collection anyway even after having it for 7 years and not knowing it.  This is the 2nd old PWE we have found during our packing and moving.

Vikings @ Ravens

Yesterday Everett & I went to the Ravens overtime 34-31 win we went down at 11 am for when the gates opened and was able to get along the rail where players enter the field.  Was able to get 4 players to sign pregame James Proche, Eric Tomlinson, Alejandro Villanueva & Kristian Welch.  Welch was a need as I didn't have his autograph at all.  Eric Tomlinson is to replace a card that I purchased.  Villanueva I had on an 8x10 from a prior season when he was with the Steelers I got him on a card so fits better in my PC book.  The day was great overall great weather a nail biter game & Salute to Service week.  see below for pictures of items signed Lamar pregame entrance and the military holding flag for the national anthem! Plus Hall of Famer Lenny Moore sits in the section next to me and was able to have him sign 3 PSU cards.  A total of 5 people signed 9 items,  a far cry from what was normal pre pandemic but still better then nothing.

2017 Mailday!

Things you find when you move!  I found an unopened envelope in a box while I was packing and moving interesting thing is it was from May of 2017!  I don't remember if this was a trade or a purchase and don't know if it was from Twitter or EBay..... but the envelope contained 4 cards 3 of which were Autographs and all are football so thinking this was a trade for the autos and he included an extra as I never PC'ed Noah Spence and would have only wanted an autographed version.  

The other Autographs are.

  1. Louis Murphy - 2009 Press Pass # PPS-LM2.
  2. Robert Herron - 2014 Topps Platinum # 80 #'d 07/50.
  3. Kenny Bell - 2015 Topps Field Access # 79.

I made a trade a few weeks ago with @FootballFan0618 and it arrived in the mail today my side was these 2 in person autographs of  Trenton Cannon he played 1 game for the Ravens before being waived and claimed by the 49ers.  So with playing a game played he became an autograph need for my all-time Ravens Roster autograph collection.  Not the best autographs but takes him off the list.
