Devonta Freeman

When Devonta Freeman was signed by the Ravens and played he back a need for the all-time Ravens autograph collection.

Geoff Tate

Geoff Tate

Everett and I on Wednesday 9/15/2021 went to see former Queensryche lead singer Geoff Tate live in concert at the The Keswick Theatre in Glenside PA.  This tour was supposed to be last year but was delayed due to the Pandemic and we had to show vaccination card or a negative test to get in.  This show was to be the 30th anniversary tour for the Empire album so it's the 31st year and the show include 2 full albums of material starting with Rage For Order followed by Empire and then 2 song encore.   We were in the 5th row and Geoff's voice sounded great probably with 18 months of rest helped this out a bit.  The opening act was Kurt Deimer in his band was Phil X who replaced Richie Sambora in Bon Jovi so was cool to see him in a smaller venue.  I was able to get the set-list from Kurt Deimer and as we were leaving he was out front on the sidewalk so I got it autographed as well.  I was also able to get a pick from Guitarist Alex Hart how was with Tate.  All in all a fantastic night of live music.  Below I will post links to Tate's set-list and some pictures and links to some songs on my YouTube channel.

2021 Topps Luminaries

On August 18, 2021 I received a DM on Twitter from @Topps that I had won a box of 2021 Luminaries which was very exciting since this is a product that is priced out of my budget for box buying as they are in the $350-400.  Keep in mind that these boxes contain a grand total of 1 Card either an autograph or an autographed relic.  I watched some YouTube breaks of this product and there was some really great stuff pulled and then there was some like Mark Teixeira so was hoping for a big pull with this one. Package came FedEx with the crunched corner was a little worried but box inside was fine! See below for the pull that I got from this premium product.  I'm very happy with this pull was hoping for maybe a Mike Trout but still a nice HOFer!

BMW Championship W/Lots of pictures

A friend of mine was volunteering to work the BMW Championship tournament so I decided to take a day off and try to do some autographing at the PGA playoff stop at the Caves Valley in Owings Mills, MD.  The tournament had issued a NO Autograph policy but most players were happy to stop and sign between holes of the Wednesday ProAm practice round.  Others sighted the policy and moved on those stating the policy were mostly the bigger names Dustin Johnson, Sergio Garcia, Brooks Koepka & Justin Thomas.  The only player that I saw sign and I didn't get was Rory McIlroy as he skipped my SI magazine a couple times.  I was hoping to get Phil Mickelson but he didn't play in the ProAm and I never saw him.  I was able to 30 golfers and 3 others that where playing in the ProAm and a total of 45 autographs so a great day even with missing out on most of the big names.
