Autographs: Ken Landreaux

Dodgers truck at West Covina mall.

Fernando Valenzuela and Ken Landreaux were signing autographs at West Covina mall yesterday. {linked here} Valenzuela was signing between 11am to 12pm. No way I was going to go see Valenzuela. I would have had to wake up early. I didn't want to do that since I'm still battling a flu. Plus I don't really need anything from him. How many Valenzuela autographs do I need? I do have a ticket stub from his no-hitter though. I'll get that soon.

My wife went to a beer festival with friends and I was bored at home with my son. I decided to go to West Covina since I only live 15 minutes away. I arrived at 2pm and noticed about 60-80 fans outside. I didn't want to get in line because I knew my son would go crazy waiting. I decided to go inside the mall and walk the whole mall. We got out at 2:50 and noticed there was only 10 fans in line. We got in line.

But first, my son takes a picture with the truck.

I don't need any autographs from Landreaux. I've met him several times and I already have what I needed. But I did find a few baseball cards in the garage.

I give it to Landreaux and he tells me "Ok which card do you want me to sign?" I tell him "Only 1? You can sign 2 cards, one for my son"

He says "Oh you're right". His agent jumps in and tells Landreaux that I have this Dodgers blog and I'm always posting appearances of their events. Ladnreaux says no problem and signs all 4 cards.

Love the '87 Topps set!

We went to a second line to see if we can win any prizes.

Thanks to the Dodgers, Ken Ladnreaux, Jack DeLance and all the nice workers who made this a fun event.
