My Graphing Thread

Part 2

Few weeks ago I graphed after the Giants game.

Daryl Johnston 8x10
Bobby Rainey 1/1

Johnston didn't want to add Pro Bowls. Giants were so much better about signing compared to the Jets. After all they did win. The last week I saw Chris Rock, this time I saw Tracy Morgan. Almost got a picture with him. Also met someone that played college ball at LSU at least 20 years ago, nice guy.

Next weekend was a Giants signing and a Mets game. That Saturday I went to see Leonard Marshall. Got him on an 8x10, added 3x All-Pro and 83.5 sacks. He was pretty nice. Next day I went to the Mets home finale.

Added Gavin Cecchini & Erik Goeddel to 2016 Mets 8x10
Added Addison Reed & Flores to 2015 WS ball
Added Goeddel to 2015 Mets 8x10
Added Josh Edgin to 2014 Mets 8x10

Missed getting Hansel Robles, Nimmo & Terry Collins. Not many Phillies signed - Luis Garcia, Michael Mariot.

Last Saturday I went to see Jessie Armstead & then the Devils postgame that night.

If you may remember, Armstead signed it on the side the first time I saw him. He was about to do the same thing but I stopped him in time...lol. I asked him to put 5x Pro Bowl and he added 4x All-Pro too. Moving onto that night, things went fine with the Devils.

Added Pavel Zacha to 16/17 & 15/16 Devils 8x10
Added Jon Merrill to 14/15 & 15/16 Devils 8x10
Added Beau Bennett, Palmieri, Cammalleri, Blandisi & Reid Boucher to the 16/17

Sunday I went to the Mets season finale in Philly. Only able to get one Met. Also Ryan Howard's last game as a Phillie. They did good honoring him.

Colton Murray 1/1
Josh Smoker on 2016 Mets 8x10
Odubel Herrera 8x10
Jimmy Paredes 1/1

Got Herrera & Paredes after. Wasn't able to get Granderson, Conforto, Montero, Robles, Nimmo. Missed getting Eickhoff, signed by 1st base after the game. Some Phillies that stopped after were the manager, Hellickson, Asher or Asche I forget lol, Andres Blanco, Altherr, Ryan Howard even signed. Lastly, few days ago I went for the Pistons, first bball of the season. Unfortunately got there very late, took forever to find parking. But wasn't a total waste.

Broadcaster Rick Mahorn 2/3
Marcus Morris 2/2
Reggie Jackson 8x10
Drummond 1/2

Mahorn did not want to sign the Nets card, stated that he hated his time with them lol. Have to see what's next, thanks for reading.

Hersey Hawkins 8x10 & 3 cards



Also there was a signing going on back home for Matt Forte but didn't really need him. Luckily my friend came through for me. Not only did he get my card signed, he got a photo from them too. And this was a photofile....very surprising that those were provided.

Did a bit of hockey this weekend. Maple Leafs and Oilers were in town. Friday I hit up Toronto's hotel. I didn't want to get together my Oilers stuff because I wasn't able to find out where they were staying. Well they were there too. Only 3 people were there. McDavid signed. And I had nothing. Anyway for the Maple Leafs....

Bozak 2/2

Only others to come and sign were Nikita Zaitsev & Matt Hunwick. And someone chased Van Riemsdyk's car and got him.

Crap. Decided to go postgame for them and the Devils. Only ones to sign were Nylander & Zach Hyman. But I did get a couple Devils.

Missed Dragic. Juwan Howard didn’t want to sign. A week ago I went to a signing for Bernie Nicholls near me. $10 per graph.

Got him on a Kings puck.



Very good price for someone like him. And next day he had a signing in the city for 30.

Friday I went to a Westchester Knicks game. It was Knicks Legends Night. For a pregame signing, Allan Houston, Starks, Larry Johnson, Gerald Wilkins & Johnny Newman would be there. Turned out to be one item per. Got back in line, got to 2 of them before I was stopped. At first one of the guards accused me of cutting in line, when I actually let someone in line. Then I was kicked out of line apparently for going back in line. Another one tried to say one-per meant only one, period. He wouldn’t admit he was wrong even when I was trying to be logical with him.

Houston 8x10, 1/1
Starks 8x10, 1/1
Johnson 8x10 (asked him to add Grandmama)

About 10 people there. Pretty cold and windy. Toney Douglas, Brandan Wright & VC didn’t sign. Didn’t even notice Van Exel. Just missed getting Randolph. If one more person tried getting him (or it wasn’t freezing), I would’ve been able to get him. Very happy about getting Daniels though. 2 more left on 1 and 3 on the other.
