Rays Fan Fest Saturday Preparations

I’m just about all set for Saturday, I’ve been waiting quite awhile and just got my last couple of shipments of cards in a couple days ago. I’m trying a new strategy this year compared to what I’ve done in the past, I’m using double sided tape with cards on a page in hopes that the ease of access for the players might result in more numbers being signed. I’m using just traditional clear 9 slot card holders but have the cards lined up on the side. I’ll try to get some pictures up tomorrow. I’ve got quite the list of players and # of cards, all in total I have 292 cards of 73 different players and coaches, the most I have on a page is 9 with Rocco Baldelli, I’m hoping he is a great signer as in all I have almost 100 Baldelli cards and probably 20-25+ different variations. Everyone else is maxxed out at 8 it is a long list but here we go, I will include # of cards, how many different, and any special #’d or Memorabilia cards included. I have 13 Jersey cards and 78 #/d cards and many more non numbered refractors and other insert and prospect cards.

Rays Fan Fest Saturday Preparations

Hello world!

Hello everyone I’m hoping to have this blog up and running this year to catalog by successes collecting autographs throughout the grapefruit league and onto the regular season with the Rays. I will be mainly collecting autographs of Rays players and coaches but will never turn down any opportunities from opposing players. My first attempt in person will be this upcoming Saturday at the Rays Spring Training Fan Fest down in Port Charlotte. I have never been to this event and am hoping that it is not only a good time but that it will grant a ton of access to the players in hopes of obtaining autographs. I will have a future post breaking down the books I am bringing to help in this quest. Wish me luck, I’m sure I will have a blast regardless of the success one way or another.

Hello world!
