The above 2004 SP Prospects turned out really nice. It scanned really well, also. I powdered this one, and it helped out, as the signature looks about perfect.
Treanor (b. 1976) played in the majors from 2004 to 2012 for the Marlins, Tigers, Rangers, Royals, and Dodgers. He had 281 his, 18 home runs and a .221 batting average.
Misty May Treanor (b. 1977) won the Gold Medal for beach volleyball during the 2004 Olympic Summer Games without losing a set. Teamed with Kerri Walsh, Treanor won the Gold in the 2008 and 2012 Summer Olympics, as well.
I mailed to the Treanors on May 8, and got the cards back on July 18, for a 71-day TAT.

I was able to get two Max George cards signed. We couldn't get him inside the stadium as he was one of the last players to come out on the field and the coach had run Chris and I off (apparently, the players can't sign by the dugout...?). We ended up getting George at the team bus.
Chris got two baseballs during the trip, and kept telling me how much fun he was having. I'm glad, because I'll miss him while I am on my trip.

Nevin (b. 1971) played in the majors from 1995 to 2006 for the Astros, Tigers, Angels, Padres, Rangers, Cubs and Twins. He had 1,131 hits, 208 home runs and a .270 batting average. His best season was in 2001 for the Padres when he hit 41 home runs and made his only appearance as an All Star.
I mailed to Nevin on June 12 and got the cards back on July 15, for a 33-day TAT.

I made a few COMC and Ebay purchases so I would have some "different" cards for this series, and I also raided my Orioles PC boxes for some players who were on the Keys. Finally, I picked up a couple team sets to round things out so I could get autos of some guys that I may not have been able to, otherwise.
This 2017 Bowman Chrome orange refractor of Josh Morgan was an Ebay purchase, and turned out really nicely. The card is numbered 6/25.
The above Jeremy Moore was a COMC pickup. He even asked about it, "Why is this one orange?" I explained to him that it was a factory set parallel. This card is numbered 60/190.
So, We all had a great time at the games, and my nephew has put together a graphing book that he can take with him to Winston-Salem Dash games. I hope he sticks with it, because he seemed to really enjoy himself, and the stack of autos he is taking home with him.
I'd like to thank my friend, Neil, for the tickets to each game, as well. The seats were great and we had an awesome time.

I was really glad to see that he got me this Nelson Rodriguez, because I love these cards. I should be able to get at least one more of these cards signed this season.
Nick is working on a few more cards for me, which I hope to see soon. Thank you so much for the help, Nick! I really appreciate it!
