Rock Ya-Sin

Before my vacation I made a couple of EBay purchases first was the Kelsie Whitmore that I was hoping to get signed before I left but shipper took his time sending so it arrived while I was away hopefully get her to sign it next time in York or Lancaster.  The Rock Ya-Sin has been signed by the Ravens so this is a place holder until I can get him in person or if I don't get him.

Kyle Petty

While on vacation My wife and I went to the Beef and Bottle for steaks in the bar area in Charlotte, NC.  We were seated next to a guy and we started talking, after a couple hours and finding out that he does some work for Kyle Petty's Charities and discussing hobbies and autographs he said if we leave at the same time he has something for me we did and he gives me a signed Kyle Petty card.  Very nice and unexpected, I have a Kyle auto and have meet him a couple times locally but this is a new item for the collection.
