I had a lot of fun and got a bunch of goodies to show off. I won't have the photos till at least tomorrow (digital camera issues), but here's a representative taste of the stuff I got.
I picked up a few freebies, most of which were ads like this schedule featuring Mark Teixeira. I also committed to at least one game on the schedule.
What, you thought I'd go to a place with a memorabilia show and not buy cards? You fools! This also a direct result of how my conscious decision not to stand in the three-plus hour autograph lines ultimately affected my card buying choices.
Here's another thing I made a firm decision on - go cheap on the memorabilia and souvenirs. It was tough, damn tough in one case, but as you can see here sometimes cheap is good.
Hey, what's this? I thought you weren't going to stand in the autograph lines? Well, yeah. I was kind of surprised myself when I ended up in one. Note: This is NOT John Smoltz's autograph. Not even close. Anyone who guesses gets a cookie.
I'll have this sorted out and written up sometime this week, so stay tuned!
