Failure #2: Rollie Fingers
I missed getting Rollie Fingers' autograph at the recent All Star Fan Festival because I was in line to get Gaylord Perry's autograph. Not to worry I told myself - Perry is the older player (and thus, probably will stop signing before Fingers) and I figured I could get Fingers' autograph through the mail.
Sadly, I was mistaken on the latter. I received this form letter on the same day that Lee MacPhail's autograph arrived. The small card informed me that in order to obtain an autograph, I must include $10 with my request.
Maybe someday when we have a little extra income I'll try again.
