It’s Been Far Too Long…

Hello there everybody, it is me, Jonathan, the NYC Autograph Collector. Good news, I am absolutely 100% going to be updated this season. What happened last year was simply I was going so much that I got so far behind with the blog. I must have been 20-30 entries behind and with everything else in my life (not just baseball) the blog wasn’t as much a priority and simply didnt get updated.

Anyway, here are the stats from 2009:

1488 MLB Autographs
1900+ Total Autographs including MiLB
6 Bats (including a bat from Ryan Westmoreland…who had the brain tumors)
6 Lineup Cards
1000s of great moments

Here are some of the autographs I got, the highlights, if you will:


I have high hopes for 2010 also. I dont think it will be 1488, but I should hit 1000 again which would be fine for me.

Friday I will be doing the Washington Nationals as well as the Philadelphia Flyers of the NHL, and postgame for the New York Rangers, so it should be a mammoth update…after that I wont be doing a hotel until May 7th for San Francisco. But I will be going to a few New Hampshire Fishercats Games…Ill keep everyone posted.

Thanks, and have fun!

Awesome blog! I really enjoyed reading your archives and have bookmarked you to follow you throughout the season. I am an autograph collector as well and mainly collect through the mail. Please feel free to check out my blog occasionally, and I’d love any comments you may have. I really like the auto’d Allen & Ginters you’ve got. I’m working my way through the 2008 and 2009 sets TTM, and will get some scans up before long.

Jonathan:

My name is Chris Rhoden and I live about 45 miles from San Francisco Ca. Your blog is extremely enjoyable to read. When my son was seven (he is now 34) he started collecting autographs/etc. We had season tickets to the Oakland A’s (Bash Brother Times). We attended the 1987 All Star game. The HOF players where staying it the same hotel which we stayed . Befriended Bob Feller and his wife. He invited us to attend the after game party. Have tons and tons of stories about getting the greats of baseball autographs. As a father I took pics of my son getting their autographs. In jr. high he started taking his owe photos and getting them signed when players came back. Today he now works for a professional baseball team (has worked for the since his senior year in high school). My wife and I were in NYC in July when the A’s played the yanks. I tried unsuccessfully to find your “notes” on visiting the A’s hotel on the 23rd and 24th of July. Could you please email me (crhoden42@comcast.net) and let me know how to find them? If possible, I would like to share with you (if interested) my son’s experience getting all (and I mean..ALL) the great of the game.
