Nice get. Here's what I got during the signings from last weekend:



I got to the event a little late, but was able to get Steve Garvey, Dave Dravecky, Terry Kennedy, Norm Sherry, Dick Dent, and Harry Dunlop. What a crazy weekend! I will add more signatures when I get the opportunities. =-D

San Diego Padres Meet & Greet
Friday, June 5 from 11:30 am-12:30 pm stop by the MWR Ticket Office at Naval Air Station North Island Navy Exchange Mall to meet your favorite Padres players. This is a great opportunity for autographs and photos.

D and I headed out to the SDSU game in Irvine today in the off chance we might be able to land Strasburg one more time before he gets drafted. The game was great with Meredith hitting two HRs, Lavigne throwing a stellar game and the Aztecs winning 4-1 to continue on in the tourney. They quickly cleared everyone out from the stadium after the game ended to make preparations for the 8pm game, and we headed out to the outfield gate to see if we could catch Stras as the team left the field. There were quite a bit of people there, and Stras did come out with the rest of the team, signing sporadically along the way as he departed. D and I were lucky to get him on the last stop before his dad and a Boras henchman whisked him away for good. I got him on an official Rawlings NCAA ball with the 2009 CWS logo on it, which they were selling inside the park. I'll post photos tomorrow as the sunlight is better to photograph in, but all in all it was a great experience! Tomorrow is a bit tricky as my understanding is that the Aztecs will play the 4pm game, but will also play the 8pm game if they win the earlier one. So, it's a bit of a risk for anyone coming up from SD. But, good luck to anyone who makes it out tomorrow. At least you'll get to see some good collegiate baseball!

Here's a photo of the ball I got signed. They were selling these for $10 at the game, and I thought they were pretty unique being the official Rawlings NCAA baseballs with the 2009 CWS logo on them!

Scoot, you might want to consider putting the baseballs inside their own UV protective cubes inside the case as well. There are different levels of UV protection that companies use on their glass. This highest possible is around 98%, which I guess is called 'archival' or 'museum' quality. A dealer online told me that anyone who advertises 100% UV protection is full of crap! So, there still are some UV rays that get by. Plus, this type of glass is a lot more expensive, so if you paid $118 for your case the glass might not provide the maximum protection.

I had a case a while back that had UV protective glass on it, but a lot of my baseballs began to brown over time or the signatures started to fade. So, I got another case online, but I also put my baseballs inside their own UV protective cubes for added proection. I've had the case shown below for about 2 years now, and I haven't run into any issues with my baseballs getting damaged like they did with the previous case. Plus, the balls still display well even inside the cubes. Just some food for thought!
