Jadeveon Clowney

With autographing at the Ravens games getting harder I figured I should look for some of the newer guys that have certified autographs on eBay and came across and won this 2015 Topps Field Access # 65 for about $5 so will make a nice place holder until I can get him in person.

Jack Butler

Yesterday I added Bill Cowher to the HOF autograph Collection today another Steeler Jack Butler who is my 276th HOF in the collection this was listed on ebay and I made an offer that was accepted, so I feel good about this one. Jack passed away in 2013, the signed picture came with a ticket from the event in 2011 where Jack was an autograph guest.

Bill Cowher

I saw that Bill Cowher had a book out and there were signed copies on Ebay but I did a search on Amazon and found a copy for half the price so I bought it Bill is the 275th Football HOFer in my collection.  The book is in good condition with I nice crisp autograph with a note saying "this signed edition has been specifically bound by the publisher". Great add the the autograph collection.

I made a couple claims on the X threads for 2 autographs the first was back on 8/26/23 as part of CCC_Weekend from @JGfan24ever.  I just received it today as he forgot to put it in the mail which is fine as I thought USPS might have lost it, the card is a Roman Phansalkar 2022 Panini Elite Extra Edition #HG-RP.

Tavius Robinson

I purchased this 2023 Panini Prizm Draft Picks #DPA-TAR Tavius Robinson card off EBay for less than $3.  Tavius was Drafted by the Ravens in the 4th round out of Ole Miss.  With autographs getting harder to obtain at Ravens games I'm filling in when I can by purchasing or trading for them.

Staten Island

Friday night I went to Lancaster for the opening game of the final regular season series with Staten Island.  I did autographs before the game but that was slim pickings as the guys I wanted and had stuff for weren't in the starting line-up or where pitchers and none of them came out prior to the game actually starting.  I was only able to get 2 people 1 card by Kelsie Whitmore & 3 cards from Manager Homer Bush.  I did also find a batting practice ball in the seats when the gates opened.

Jim Finks

I found a signed book on EBay about Jim Finks Sr. Football Hall of Famer as an Administrator and is also in the Vikings ring of honor and Saints HOF.  The book and the Christmas card that came with it are signed by his son who was an author So I kinda messed that up thinking it was Sr. autographed but the book came out in 2003 Sr. died in 1994 and Jr. passed away in 2012. So just a signed book not an HOF added autograph to the collection still a nice piece.

Kyu Blu Kelly

I purchased this 2023 Panini Chronicles Impeccable Draft of Kyu Blu Kelly Canvas Creations # CC-KBK #'d 133/199 off of EBay as he was the Ravens 5th round draft pick this year. I was thinking I would need him for the Ravens all-time roster autograph collection, But he was one of the cuts on cut down day and then claimed by Seattle. with that he will be one of the few players drafted by the Ravens to not play for them and will still find it's way into my Ravens autograph binder for that reason.  It's a nice card and was at a minimal price.

Alex Dickerson

I went to the York Long Island game last night for pregame autographs but that was horrible as when the players started to come out for the game the rains started in between the off and on rain I was only able to get one player Alex Dickerson he did sign all 3 cards I had.  In addition didn't even see some of the other players I had items for like Wilson Ramos rumor had it he wasn't there and Wally Backman who I don't think was there as Lew Ford took out the line-up card Jake Fishman, Al Alburquerque & Robert Stock didn't see and Ian Clarkin was the starting pitcher along with Ruben Tejada who we asked but he said something that we didn't understand and he never came over.

Last night Dave and I went to Hersheypark Stadium for the Nickelback, Brantley Gilbert & Josh Ross concert.  I thought it was a weird line up as the opening acts didn't seem to be in the same genre as the headliner as Josh Ross is a country singer and Brantley Gilbert is a Southern Rock artist but both where good I'd probably have never gone to see them if they where on this bill and probably wouldn't pay to see them again as I already have.  Nickelback was great played most of the hits not playing Next Contest, Something in Your Mouth & If Today Was Your Last Day I would have liked to have seen on the set list but can't play everything.   They dis some cool things like fan from the crowd for Rockstar, Shooting T-Shirts into the crowd & Bring up Josh Ross & Brantley Gilbert up to do Cooperhead Road.  Below see links to the set-lists and some links to some YouTube videos from the show.

Eagles @ Ravens

I went to the first preseason game in Baltimore last and did autographs before and after the game.  Ravens access has become very limited and hard to get anything but was able to get a few from guys that wanted and made an effort to sign.  It was easier to do the visitors, which as a Ravens home season ticket holder is very disappointing to say the least.  I got a total of 51 autographs with 60% visitors.  In addition to the autos I was able to also get Ravens DT Rayshad Nichols Skull Cap after the game as well.  below is a list of who and what I got signed along with a few pictures.
