Not a school project. I'm going to the White Plains card show coming up and I'm going to meet 8 different players. Frank Thomas, Gaylord Perry, Sid Fernandez, Bud Harrelson, Jerry Koosman, Mark Whiten, Tino Martinez, and Steve Carlton. I'm going to get a Jersey signed by Frank Thomas, Sid Fernandez, Tino Martinez, and Steve Carlton, the other players are baseballs and photos. I have absolutely no idea where I'm going to hang them up because my room is already full, and I have no wall space. Maybe in my basement...
Anyways, the project that I'll be starting might (will) take a while. I bought a Lou Gherig jersey off of (of course) ebay to get signed by all the great Yankee players that I meet. I don't know how many signatures I will have on it by the time I'm done, but I don't want it to look messy and crowded. It is large jersey, so hopefully I'll be able to fit 30+ Signatures on it, but the more the merrier! I never thought of that idea, until I first started blogging. The first blog I saw when I was on here was Drew's blog over at Drewscards, and after looking through a bunch of his posts, I saw that he got a photo of Mickey Mantle and got it signed by some Yankees players. I thought, wow, that's an awesome Idea! Why don't I do something like that? Yep, that wasn't something I could jump right into. After "some" time of looking on ebay, I finally had this awesome idea at about 1 AM in the morning. I searched ebay for a Babe Ruth jersey, but didn't find any that I liked, and besides, he wasn't the nicest person. I looked for a Lou Gherig jersey, and I found a really cool old-school (Like the Rhyme?) jersey.
Hopefully I will be able to fit a decent amount of signatures on both the right and left side of the four. I did order a large, so I think I'll be able to get a good amount. I think it will turn out fantastic by the time I'm done with it! My only problem is to limit who I should put on, and limit the amount of players I put on otherwise It will get too crowded and not look as good. I'm still deciding whether I should allow some to sign right below the four...
Here are the other Jerseys that I got for the players to sign:
Sid Fernandez (front)
Sid Fernandez (back)
Tino Martinez (front)
Tino Martinez (back)
As you can see, I'm a huge fan of signed jerseys, and I think they look fantastic. The problem is... They take up a lot of room. I plan on Frank Thomas inscribing it "To Frankie" and "Big Hurt."
Thank you for reading, and sorry for not blogging as much!
