The best part was that I was able to go through my boxes at the last minute, pull some cards out that had been in there for a long time, and ge tthem signed. The above Garabez Rosa is a prime example. I have had this 2010 Pro Debut since I bought the back back in 2010, and had hoped to get it signed. It didn't turn out the best, but it is still signed.
The worst part of the game was the woman with season tickets near where we (and some others) were standing, waiting to get autographs. She was really snarky when I asked if I was in her way of her seats, then she loudly called Chris out for supposedly not saying excuse me as he walked past her. Let's not mention that he DID say excuse me, or that she never uttered those two words when we were standing near her seats. I think she was just a miserable person who enjoyed passing that off onto other people. I knew Chris said excuse me, but I tried to diffuse her situation by saying I would handle his "lack of manners", to which she replied "It's not a big deal, kids don't listen to their parents anyway..." That told me all I needed to know. However, the group behind us was a bunch of screaming 12-13 year old boys, so I'm sure she just enjoyed that. The boys behind us (and their families) were very friendly, and we ended up chatting with them throughout the game.
Back to the cards. I ordered two Staedtler pens from Amazon, and last night was the first time we have used them. Overall, they worked great, but two of the cards (the 15 DJ Stewart refractor above and the purple Joey Rickard Heritage) didn't turn out too well. They had been pre-prepped prior to Fan Fest, but I guess maybe they didn't take. I had heard that you didn't need to rep with a Staedtler, but I guess I should keep it up. Oh well, they're still signed.
