Signed Ball of the Day - Mickey Hatcher ( ROMLB Sweet Spot w/1988 World Series Inscription )

I have never been able to acquire Mickey's autograph IP. He has attended public signings before but something else was always happening that same day or I just felt that I didn't feel like spending 20-25 dollars on a signature from him. I still wanted it but just waited for the right time. Fan Fest was that time.

The day the schedule was released and I saw that Mickey was paired with one of the new Dodgers of 2014 ( more on that player tomorrow ) I made sure that I would be buying this session ticket. It happened to be one of my priorities.

I happened to be one of the first 5 in line and approached Mickey and handed him a ball and as he was signing he started to put the 88 inscription without me even asking. Score. He must be proud of his accomplishment and I can understand and respect that. I said thank you for adding it and thank you for the autograph and moved on to the other player sitting next to him.

Thank you showing up Mickey and filling a hole in my collection.


88 seems so long ago.
