I am a big hockey fan in general, but the Flyers come first as you would imagine.

Hahaha. I have no idea, it was a screen name from like 6th grade. I thought it was funny back in those days and used it for a lot of things just because it was easy to keep everything with the same name. Eventually I had to be an adult about things.

I can say nothing other than I know where teams stay when in Philly because I work in center city. Anything else, you are on your own.

If you're looking for jersey signatures the best way I have found to get guys outside your city is to send the number you want signed in the mail with a nice letter about how you're a long time fan, out of town, can't afford to make a trip and would love nothing more then having X player sign the letter for you to put on your jersey. Of course send a return envelope, postage paid.

I know someone who has never been denied doing this and has maybe 20-25 jerseys signed through this method.

Yea, I have been meaning to do this with a lot of my mcfarlane bases for retired players. I forget the site, but it has a list of addresses and keeps track of the success rate and how long it takes for players to return items. Issue with my jerseys is they are already numbered for the most part so I just meet them in person when the team comes to Philly.

Dude, you've got enough stuff to open up a shop. Haha. I have a bunch of random signed puck and baseballs but nothing too serious. The two coolest things I have are a hammer signed by Dave Schultz and a bat that was given to me at a Phillies game by Joe Millette in like 1992 or 1993. The guy is a nobody, but it was one of my first Phillies games. I got Curt Schilling's autograph on a ball then asked the next guy I saw in a Phillies jersey to sign as well. It happened to be Millette (looking back, this was a terrible decision because now I have a ball signed by a potential HOFer and a guy 99% of the baseball population have never heard of). The next inning after Millette batted he reached over the dugout and handed me his bat.

I don't spend much. I have been collecting jerseys and figures for years. I make the prints and they run me like $3 ea. Pucks I won a lot of them when I was younger at the Wildwood Casino on the boardwalk (no longer exists) and the new ones I just buy from a wholesale place for cheap. All of the signatures I get are free.

I spend too much. I'll say that much but it's pretty much all I spend my money on.

The Schenn and Giroux jerseys I got straight from Meigray. Other stuff I get through auctions, team equipment sales, and the game-used stand at CBP.

Man, if I lived up there instead of TX, I'd be getting a ton of autographs too. Just too far for me.

I MIGHT try to go to the Carnival again next year. We'll see.

Do you live near Dallas? If so just figure out where teams stay
