Sosa-Doubtful
Pafko-Too old
Maddux-I wish
Grace
Sutcliffe


Brass will more than likely be there.

Attending cubs convention

Post by JoeSoss on Tue Jan 03, 2012 2:55 am

This will be my 5th year attending the convention. I have only stayed there one time and I will never do it again. Its just not worth the money. I expect the convention to have even fewer people attending than last year. I am hoping to acquire some Castro game used equipment in the garage sale on Friday or Saturday. I would also like to get two season ticket stubs that I purchased from Castro's first MLB game signed. I just started collecting unused ticket stubs because they are fairly inexpensive and they will look good framed next to a lineup card or picture. I just happened onto the forum tonight when I was taking a break from grading papers and I thought I would make a quick post.

Re: 2012 Cubs Convention - CONVENTION ENDED

Post by coachk28 on Sat Jan 07, 2012 11:53 am

It's safe to say I am very disappointed in this years Cubs Convention guest list!

Shawon Dunston, Randy Hundley, and Rick Sutcliffe are the only guys I am really excited about adding to my multi signed home plate!

I want to add Jed Hoyer, Bob Brenly, Pat Hughes, Len Kasper, Jason McLeod, Keith Moreland, Tom Ricketts to my Cubs Mini Helmet that is already signed by Theo Epstein, Randy Bush, and Lou Cella. Maybe even add Ernie Banks for the hell of it... since he is Mr. Cub!


So it looks like I may be spending more time in the Q&A Panels than in the actual autograph lines.

Or I will just have to see how my hook up goes!

Im going for the second time this year.... I wish that they would bring more 69 cubs than just the big guys, I'm working on a 69 cubs gu bat. Dawson would be cool to get again too. Also to the guy who was talking about old ticket stub and full tickets I have 420 stubs/full tickets that I would be willing to get rid of in a trade or something like that. The stub are from 82,87,88,89,90,91,92,93,94,some random from 95,97, and a few from 95 spring training.

Anyone else doing the same?

Arrival at Convention

Post by JoeSoss on Mon Jan 09, 2012 1:36 am

I will be there Friday morning to register around 10:00 AM. I usually don't wait around in the lines for autographs, I try to get into the special autograph lines. I am looking forward to the locker room sale this year because unlike past years I expect a lot of the stuff can be had at a reasonable price. I Would love to pick up a clubhouse chair, line up cards, some batting helmets, and some flags that were flown above Wrigley. Keeping my fingers crossed that Rizzo attends. I just got two season ticket stubs from his fist mlb game. As far as trading for other ticket stubs, I am only looking for player's first mlb games or any significant accomplishments that may have occurred at the game. I do have a maddux 2nd career win stub that I am willing to trade.
