We all had a really good time at Fan Fest, but it did feel like it was missing something, which Ryan and I discussed on the way home. This was the first Fan Fest that I didn't spend a dime. I didn't get a chance to look through any game-used items, but I didn't have a whole lot of time. Ryan said that he looked, and there really wasn't anything that really jumped out. The normal pile of used jerseys wasn't there, which was a bummer.
Oh well. I came away with 115 autographs one all was said and done, so that was pretty nice. Ryan and I made a couple of trades, and I have some stuff that I can send to Max and Gerard for all of their help with their Fan Fests. I also am really happy that I was able to help Jacob with a major piece for his Studio set.

Doster (b. 1970) played in the majors in 1996 and 1999 for the Phillies. He had 47 hits, 4 home runs and a .233 batting average.
I mailed to Doster on January 4 and got the cards back on January 15, for an 11-day TAT.

We met Sedlock during the 2017 season. He was really nice, and signed everything we had. He also posed for photos (and signed them later) for Chris and also my nephew, Jacob.
Thanks so much for the card, Dugan!

Leon (b. 1946) played in the majors from 1968 to 1975 for the Indians, White Sox and Yankees. He had 440 hits, 24 home runs and a 236 batting average.
I mailed to Leon on January 2 and got the cards back signed on January 14, for a 12-day TAT.
Mussina (b. 1958) played in the majors from 1991 to 2008 for the Orioles and Yankees. He has a career record of 270-153 with 2,813 strike outs and an ERA of 3.68. He never won a Cy Young award, but finished in the top 5 of the voting 6 times. He won 20 games only once, in his final season. He also never won a World Series. That doesn't matter, he was an Ace and one of the best pitchers of his generation. I believe he will go in as an Oriole; the Yankees have enough Hall of Famers.
Moose becomes my 143rd Hall of Famer on a baseball.

Schlereth (b. 1986) played in the majors from 2009 to 2012 for the Diamondbacks and Tigers. He had a career record of 5-6 with 91 strike outs and a 4.35 ERA.

Before the NFL, Moore played for three seasons at Penn State.

I also took a lot of time this weekend and removed all of my signed 1987 Topps cards from my autograph albums, and moved them into their own dedicated album. I realized that the album is too small, so I need to get a proper baseball card album (cheap me using a regular 2" 3-ring binder). I'm glad to finally have that task wrapped up, because it sure was cumbersome.
Thanks for the deal, Rocco!
Show (b. 1956 - d. 1994) played in the majors from 1981 to 1991 for the Padres and A's. He had a career record of 101-89 with 971 strike outs and a 3.66 ERA. Show was found dead in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center at the age of 37.
I bought this card off of Rocco, and included it in a trade for some IP autos that I had gotten. I'll show the other cards in my next post; I wanted to do a singular post for Show.

I'm not the biggest fan of Topps Big, but I needed to fill some spots in an 8-card page, so sending this one was ok for me. It has taken some damage, due to how it was stored in my TTM box, but it is signed, looks good, and will take it's place in my album.
Benedict (b. 1955) played in the majors from 1978 to 1989 for the Braves. He had 696 hits, 18 home runs and a .242 batting average. He was a two-time All Star (1981 and 1983).
I mailed to Benedict on January 2 and got the cards back on January 11, for a 9-day TAT.
