I ordered a Luis Aparicio 1968 home jersey from the Mitchell and Ness website last weekend.  I plan on getting it signed at the Fan's Edge show in Chicago in July.  It arrived yesterday:







Today, I received some Tim Raines 16x20s that I sent to a collector in New Jersey as part of a 50/50 trade.  I sent him 4 photos total.  Two for him, and two to get signed for me.  Here they are:
