In Person Autograph Recap

On Friday, February 7th, there was a D-Backs autograph signing at Vee Quiva Hotel & Casino. The D-Backs have held this event the day before Fan Fest for the past several years, but they don't always do a good job promoting it. If it wasn't for Moe over at the blog, My 2008 Topps Set Blog, I would have missed out! Thanks Moe!

I also want to thank Joe, of the blog Catching Rays, for providing me with the Archie Bradley photo below to get signed.

Archie Bradley was the first of 4 D-Backs at the event. He is the top prospect in the D-Backs organization and one of the top prospects in all of baseball.

He was really nice and personable and seemed to really enjoy being there. I had my two oldest boys with me and we went through the line twice so we were able to get a few different things signed.

Did Gregorious was next and he seemed to enjoy being there with his teammates but didn't seem to really enjoy interacting with the fans. That's just the impression that I got.

Addison Reed was next. Reed is a new addition to the D-Backs. He didn't seem to excited to be at the event. I couldn't find any cards for him so I was only able to get the postcard from him. 

The final player at the event was A.J. Pollock. He was friendly and engaging. 

After going through the line for the second time we were waiting to speak with Moe and then a representative from the D-Backs came over and asked if we'd like to take pictures with the players. Moe was nice enough to take a few pictures with my phone, but the camera isn't very good. Here's one normal and one with us all making funny faces. 


  1. I like the look of those postcards. They did a perfect job of making them auto friendly from the way it looks.

  2. Awesome! You should have told me you didn't have any Addison Reed cards.

  3. Those postcards are pretty cool. It was nice that they took the pictures with you too, those are great memories.
