George Bell Gift

For Christmas, my wife got me a couple of signed baseballs, including this one from George Bell.  It came with an Under the Radar sports COA.  
I always remember George as a part of Toronto.  I was in middle school when he played on the South Side and man there were some good names on those teams.  Such good memories from early 90's White Sox.

Stan Bahnsen

Usually, when I see a private signing, I try to look online to see what is more economical.  In this case, buying a beckett certified ball was going to be the way to go.  
He had some great seasons on the South Side.  I love reading about the Dick Allen era teams.

Gil Coan TTM

Gil is a great TTM signer.  I sent him a ball, signature card and a pen.  Although  he didn't use the pen, He gave a good signature on both items.

Ian Hamilton IP 4/12/19

Every time the Knights are in Indianapolis, I try to go.  My kids all decided to bail so I went to this game by myself.  I got a couple of cards signed pre game.  Durign the game, my set was right behind the visitor bullpen.  I waited until the end of the game and Ian was kind enough to sign my ball.  He seemed somewhat surprised I asked for a sweetspot signature.
