The Sandlot is an iconic movie. I was pumped to get an 11×14 signed by Victor Dimattia who played “Timmy”, Marty York who played “Yeah, Yeah”, Shane Obedzinski who played “Repeat”, Chauncey Leopardi who played squints, Brandon Adams who played denunuez and of course Tom Guiry who played smalls. This is a fantastic pickup for the collection, and one I am thrilled to own.
Cheap Trick consists of Robin Zander, Tom Peterson, Rick Nielson and Daxx Nielson. Probably best known for Dream Police, this classic rock band is a fantastic addition to my collection, and one I am proud to own.
Bobby Cox is the legendary GM of the Braves, elected to the Hall of Fame in 2014. I’ve always wanted to add him to the collection on a ball, and took the opportunity to do so. Unfortunately Mr. Cox had a stroke the day after I ordered this, so I hope he makes a full recovery.
Ed Reed was elected to the Hall of Fame recently and was first Ballot. I did not have his Topps Chrome Rookie, and tracking a nice version down ( a refactor to boot) was a challenge. I am pumped to make progress on my Hall of Fame collection, and to add one of the most dynamic safety’s of my lifetime to the collection.
Johnny Robinson was also elected to the Hall of Fame as a senior candidate. He played 10 years with the Chiefs, at Safety. He was part of the Superbowl 4 Squad and was a 6 time All Pro and a member of the AFL All Time team. I don’t think Johnny was on anyone’s radar for the Hall of Fame, but he’s in and in my collection.
Rose Byrne & Glenn Close both stared in Damages. Byrne got her start in Star Wars episode 2, and went on to star in Troy, Peter Rabbit, X-Men Apocalypse, Insidious and Neighbors. Glenn Close is a bit of a legend with roles in 101 Dalamations, Fatal Attraction, Hook, The Natural, Guardians of the Galaxy, Air Force One and Mars Attacks. This is a cool pickup for the collection (despite Byrne’s signature being in a dark area)
Yngwie Malmsteen is a modern day guitar god. I was able to get the signed deluxe edition of Blue Lightning, and since My Generation Axe Pledgemusic pledge has been in Limbo for over half a year, figured i’d take this chance to get Yngwie in my collection, as He was a name I’ve wanted for a long time. His signature kinda sucks, but at least he’s in the collection now.
Sam Hunt, Dylan Crews , Andrew Villalobos and Reece Holbrook are all team USA baseball players who could potentially make the majors one day. I had a chance to bust some Wax, and thought I did fairly well.
Avery Short is a team USA Baseball player who was also part of my Wax Busting escapades. Cool jersey insert with a generous amount of game used material.
