In a box labeled "Spring Training 2006," were a number of items that I had signed when I was in Vero Beach. There is a signed photo of Grady Liddle, even a Jayson Werth signed photo. Of course, Tommy signed a card, there's a Dioner Navarro signed picture along with a Rick Monday autographed photo. There's also this sweet Dodger Mug that I never used. And then I found these two gems.
The ball is a spring training game used ball. A foul ball that eventually ended up at my feet. It has a weak signature, but an autograph from Frank McCourt nonetheless. The photo I had Mr. McCourt sign a few days later. I wonder how these two items will be viewed years from now. Could they be perceived the same as a Walter O'Malley signed ball and photo are in Brooklyn today? Any predictions?
Great question. I don't think the people of Brooklyn will ever get over the Dodgers leaving. I think an O'Malley signed ball is worth about a bag of peanuts in NY.ReplyDelete
As much as I dislike Frank, I wouldn't mind having his autograph.
He was very approachable at Vero Beach. The two autographs I got on two separate occasions there. I'm not sure if he'd feel safe to do that now.ReplyDelete
