I've been looking for a Tony Phillips autograph on a White Sox card for a LOOONG time, so I am thrilled to say I finally found one, and it cost me less than $3 shipped!

The mailman has brought me the following over the last 4 days:

Cisco Carlos 2/3
Brandon McCarthy 1/1
Rich Morales 3/3
Bob Shaw 4/3 (He included his own 8x10, and paid for postage himself, returning my SASE.  Look up class act in the dictionary, and you'll see a picture of Mr. Shaw.)

Full details can be found in the mailbag!

I will be in Chicago for 8 days in July.  Not only that, but I will be going to my first White Sox game in Chicago!  I got Scout Seats for the July 17th game against Matt Wieters and the Orioles!  I really cannot wait!

I'll be attending the Fan's Edge card show at the Donald Stephens Convention Center.  I don't really collect cards, as I view any unsigned card as a card wasted.  I'll be there for the autograph lineup.  So far I will definitely be getting:

Luis Aparicio (only $29!)
Carlton Fisk (1 auto included with VIP package!)
Mike Squires (unlimited autos included with VIP package!)
Billy Pierce (2 autos included with VIP, $15 for each additional item)

I may get Carlos Quentin for $49 as well.  I have a really nice 10x20 "2008 White Sox Breakout Stars" photo of John Danks, Gavin Floyd, Carlos Quentin, and Alexei Ramirez.  A friend in Chicago has already gotten John Danks on it for me, and will try to get the others as well.  However, CQ is a tough autograph, so I anticipate having to get him myself, either at this show or at next year's Soxfest. 

If there are any places you think I need to visit while I'm in Chicago, please let me know!  You can comment on this post, post on the (completely empty) forum, or email me!  Commenting on the post would probably be the best way, so other people will believe me that people actually visit this site!

Taj, my friendly neighborhood UPS delivery man, just made a delivery.  Here is what he brought me!



I sent this bad boy up to the MAB show to have Fisk complete it.  Unfortunately, Fisk used a much thinner Sharpie than Tom did, but it still looks pretty good.  Make sure to click the picture to see a bigger scan.
