Otis Nixon Private Signing At The National

Normally, the private signings I send off to from are counted toward TTM successes.  This one, however, was delivered by hand to a vendor at the National, and I received the card back signed a few weeks later.

Otis Nixon is a pretty tough signature to obtain, so I was very happy to see someone from the Atlanta region hosting a signing for him, and at $10/card.  It made it even easier that the vendor was taking submissions by hand at the show, so I saved a stamp.

Nixon (b. 1959) played in the majors from 1983 to 1999 for the Yankees, Indians, Expos, Braves, Red Sox, Rangers, Blue Jays, Dodgers and Twins.  He had 1,379 hits, 11 home runs and a .270 batting average.  His 620 stolen bases rank 16th all-time.  He appeared on the 2005 Hall of Fame ballot, but didn't receive any votes.
