Got a through-the-mail card from Broncos Ring of Famer Billy Thompson. Had an extra card of his, lying around, and heard he might be at some "Broncos Fan Rally". Didn't want to put up with that bullshit, so I mailed him a request.
Got some great autographs, today at "Rockies Fan Fest" (all current Rockies, of course)
Plus an old Memphis Chicks minor league card, signed by alumni Brent Mayne; jokingly known as the "winningest catcher in Rockies history".
They had a "garage sale" of old autographed crap in the basement. For $5 charity donations each, I picked up sweet-spot balls signed by:
-Preston Wilson (nobody else could identify the signature, nor remember him. Googling "Preston Wilson autograph" on my phone helped)
-Denny Neagle (most famous, in Denver, for soliciting a prostitute. But he was on the '92 Pirates)
-Stan Belinda ('92 Pirates, as well. Part of my worst baseball memory, which I'm finally over)
Damn, but some lady kept HOLLERING: "where is Giambi?! I want Giambi" ever 30 seconds. No exaggeration.
Picked up a Pirates visiting locker tag for James McDonald for $5, too. Not too bad, it's about 18 inches long and has official emblems and colors. Will look good on the Pirates section of my mural.
