My wife and I attended the White Sox game on Wednesday night.  We had Scout Seats (7th row, behind home plate), so we had dinner in the Scout Seat Lounge prior to the game.  As soon as I walked in, I practically bumped in to Bill Melton.  I brought cards of all of the former players that work in "Community Relations", so I was prepared.  Mr. Melton signed 4 cards for me.

Shortly after that, Minnie Minoso walked in.  He was the former player I most wanted to see there.  I had 6 cards with me: 2 vintage cards (including his 1952 Topps rookie card) and 4 modern cards.  I asked him to sign the 2 vintage cards first.  He happily signed, while telling me a story about his competition with Gil McDougald for the 1951 Rookie of the Year award.

I returned shortly with the 4 modern cards.  He told me he did not want to sign for me, saying "You have a store, don't you?".  I assured him that I was a HUGE White Sox fan, and he begrudgingly signed the cards for me.
