With that said, I thought it was time for me to release my rankings of such topics. As I've said before, all my autograph experiences have an individual story. So these rankings are from my own experience and my own observations. All of these experiences occurred at a sport venue or an athlete's workplace.
I have 7 categories that I will list. The first player listed is the best or worst of that respective list. Everyone after that is listed in no particular order.
Category #1: I have always witnessed these retired players sign autographs when requested. In my opinion, you couldn't have even tried to miss these players signing.
Category #2: I have always witnessed these current players sign autographs when requested. In my opinion, you couldn't have even tried to miss these players signing.
Category #3: These players used to sign all the time and since 2007 I have not seen them sign any items when asked.
Category #4: These folks will sign once in a while, and when they choose to take time to sign, they will sign for about 40-50 people.
Category #5: I have never seen these folks sign autographs when requested. Most of these athletes won't even acknowledge the fans when request signatures.
Ken Griffey Jr.
Category #6: These athletes have the best quality autographs. Every letter is spelled out and written clearly.
|Gordie Howe, Dom Dimaggio, Carl Yastrzemski, Rodrigo Lopez, Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Andre Dawson signed items.|
|Manny Ramirez, Robert Parish, Pumpsie Green, Ryan Kalish and Chris Carpenter signed items. Can you guess the correct signatures?|
