Who Is Your Current Unicorn (Hardest Graph To Get)?

Post by coachk28 on Mon Mar 05, 2012 7:33 pm

A unicorn is a mythical creature that resembles a white horse with a horn projecting out from its head.

It is known for being almost impossible to catch!

Which athlete or celebrity(s) is(are) your current unicorn? No matter how many times you try... whether in person or through the mail, you just can't catch a break and get their autograph!

Ralph Kiner is the athlete who has been impossible for me to get on my Cubs multi signed home plate! I obviously can't send it anywhere in the mail. And the past couple local signings he was supposed to do... got canceled!

As far as celebrities go... Harrison Ford is my unicorn right now! I have had a couple chances to get him in person and missed out! And I have been unable to participate in the past couple signings he has done!

Lovie Smith - I have been trying for over 4 years and every year at training camp he skips over me every time he signs!! He usually runs with his dried up black sharpie. My goal is to get him this year though, hopefully.

&

Duncan Keith- never does any signings and I never go practices so I have been waiting for years. Hopefully I get him this Thurs. (fingers crossed!)

Right now for me is Joe Schmidt HOf from the Lions. I need him on a tk hof lions helmet and he's been schedule to be in Chicago this show in March and last years March show, both cancelled. I don't know of its a money issue, or health issue. Ive seen him appear at other shows out east recently. Its hard sometimes to get the old "dinosaur" HOF since they do not appear alot. Ditkas used to be the best to get some off them, but someone screwed that up big time (no longer around). I know Art Donovan cancelled Sun Times shows a couple of time because they wouldn't pay for his wife's travel expenses...I'm just hoping thats not the case for Schmidt. They claim that are trying to get him for the future...the guy is not getting any younger.

Also, I would say Fran Tarkenton too since he has never been to a Chicago show. He's appeared in KC and other places but not here. I know it has something to do with paying for his private jet fuel costs.

Kieth did several signings including a free signing in Geneva where about 80 people showed up and you could go through line as many times you wanted 3 seasons ago.

Since he signed with Frameworth, that ended.

Rickey Henderson and Carl Yastrzemski on my 3000 hitters home plate.

Rickey has done multiple shows since I began the project but he refuses to sign home plates and bases. I think he had an exclusive agreement signing bases with an outfit called MOS (Man of Steel) a few years back and he still won't sign bases. That's pretty frustrating from a collector's point of view. I don't see how a multi player signed piece like this would conflict with single signed pieces sold thru MOS. And Yaz just won't leave the east coast. He pretty much only signs in Boston or Florida and I'm not real keen on the idea of sending the plate thru the mail to get signed. Expensive to send that heavy a piece and I'm afraid of it being "lost" in the mail.

Would love to see your home plate!

I feel your pain!

There are several Cubs that I want on my plate that sign for free through the mail... but NO WAY am I sending that bad boy!

Hank Aaron, Steve Young, Jerry Rice, George Brett, Wade Boggs. I have seen a couple listed in the last couple of years but have not been able to attend. Aaron I have yet to see anywhere.

Also, Maddux, Griffey Jr, and Favre. They never sign it seems.

You asked for it... here it is. Still in need of Yastrzemski, Mays, Henderson, Palmeiro, and Jeter.

Yaz is only an east coast signer,
Mays is astronmical on a plate now,
Henderson won't sign bases,
Palmeiro is less attractive after the steroid issues,
and Jeter isn't finished yet and I'm sure he'll be big $$$ too.

So maybe I am finished with this project... for now.
