Mesa, AZ-- My first day on the trip my plane landed just an hour or two ago weather is beautiful here I don't miss Chicago at all and I was begging my parents to let me come down and get the players for the 4:00 game I am so happy it was 4:00 or I wouldn't have gotten any but I got some really good ones even though it was some coaches but I got my idol/hero/favorite player, Kris Bryant so I am soooo happy I was worried I would not get him at all this whole trip. Here is what I got and I'll go into getting them more under the photos:

Buddy Bailey was nice when signing as always and when he signed he was with Manny Acta... I have like 10 Manny Acta cards at home... Well I talked to him and Manny and thanked them for signing I got a Manny Acta TTM in 2010 when I was in 5th grade and he said no problem. I have a ton of other Buddy Bailey cards I hope to get done later this week too he coached for a long time so he has a lot of cards. Thanks Buddy!
Kris Bryant 2012 Panini Team USA Collegiate National Team baseball card AUTOGRAPH
Kris Bryant!!! My hero! I thought he was going to big league me and not sign because he got on a golf cart and I thought he would drive by me and not stop but he stopped and signed for everyone for 20 minutes probably signed 100 autos I thought by this point in his career he would be conceded but I guess not. He loves signing and his fans. Thanks for being a class act Kris hopefully I can get you again later in the week! My hero!
