When I Met Gibson & Eckersley

With all this talk about Kirk Gibson's auction, I thought I'd share the following pictures.

 1997 - Not sure what's going with my "Elvis" hair. This is at Dodger Stadium. You might notice Jon SooHoo in the background. Gibson was selling his autobiography. I don't remember the title of the book. I do remember it was big with lots of pictures. I'll look for it and shoot some pictures of it when I get a chance.

2005 - Again with Gibson. He wasn't in a good mood. This was at a Sports Card show.

Here I am with Dennis Eckersley. Same event. You can see the poster on the desk. It's a art poster of Game 1 of the 1988 World Series. It's really nice. Eckersley is looking at the ball that's about to hit the stands and Gibson is barely walking. Both of them signed it. One of my favorite items. Eckersley was very nice. I've met him a couple of times after this and he always has time to talk for a while. He doesn't seem to be bothered by talking about this game. A great dude.
