Yasmany Tomas Signing

Yasmany Tomas did a signing last Friday at a local Boost Mobile store. Being unemployed does have some benefits. It meant that I could attend the signing which started at 11 am. Being the responsible parent that I am, I had my two oldest miss school so they could attend as well (they have less than 2 weeks left of school and didn't have any tests or anything like that). My wife and my youngest also came, so there were 5 of us total, hence the 5 cards you see below.

We got there about 40 minutes before 11 o'clock and there was only 3 people in front of us in line. The event was scheduled from 11 am - 1 pm, but we didn't find out until about 10 after 11 that Yasmany wasn't supposed to be there until 11:30 am and he didn't show up until about 11:45 am.

They did have about 40 pizzas for the 60 people that showed up, as well as frozen yogurt and Baxter showed up as well. Here he is with a couple of my kids. You can see the person in the background with the Tomas jersey, waiting for him to arrive.


Tomas was really nice. Here are a couple of pics of him signing the cards. 




Love this card! It's from his MLB debut, which took place on Jackie Robinson Day, 2015. You can see he is wearing #42. I think it turned out great!


Had a couple of these 2016 Topps cards that he signed. The second one got smudged a little bit. 




This 2016 Gypsy Queen was part of the team set that my friend Joe recently gave me.


This 2015 Bowman card also turned out great signed!


Finally, here is a picture that my wife took of my boys and I with Yasmany. Big thank you to Tomas, the Diamondbacks and the Boost Mobile store for a fantastic event!
