On a FaceBook group that I am a part of, there was a guy selling balls at $20 each. Some were certified, some were not but got a great group of some harder or obscure White Sox players.
After being on the team two other times, I look forward to seeing Gio Gonzalez on the team this season.
I tried to get Alen Hasnon at a Louisville Bats game this summer but he came out of the dugout too late.
I was actually surprised how long it took me to get a Tony LaRussa signed ball. He is great through the mail but I haven't got to him.
Oh Boy, Mat Latos started off so strong with the South Side but I think this is when I understood the term "Dead Cat Bounce".
I was at Alexei's first MLB game at the home opener in Cleveland. Great player.
Although not a good pitcher for the White Sox, James Shields was a great person. I enjoyed meeting him at picnic in the park a couple of years ago.
I also sent some balls in for a Fantasy Camp consignment in Florida. I was hoping to get 6 but came back with 4. Warren Brusstar, Scott Eyre, Chad Kreuter and Rodney McCray.
From eBay, I made a purchase for an Eloy Jimenez ball as I heard he side paneled signed balls at SoxFest so I decided the certified route would go better.
One day, I searched on eBay, White Sox deceased under balls and I found this Willy Miranda ball. Although not a big name, he does fall under the great Cuban connection with White Sox players.
And my last purchased came while waiting in line at SoxFest, I was going through auctions on the MLB auction site and saw a Jerry Hairston ball that had no bids. I thought for sure, I would get outbid on either this ball or some of the guaranteed wristbands but ended up winning all. I would like to study him a little more as he played so long on the South Side but didn't play a lot of games each year.
