2012 NATIONAL TREASURES

Derek Norris is one of the best catchers in the American League this season, and one of the reasons the Oakland offence is humming so well right now.

I was not able to get his autograph while in Cleveland.  I had him alone (or with one other collector), and both times he blew us off, saying he would sign inside.  He never did.  That bugs me.  I get that players don’t like getting bugged at the hotel, but if they would sign more at the stadium then people like me would not bother going to the hotel.  I would rather get autographs at the stadium anyway.  If you don’t want to sign just say no…but I hate when they say “at the stadium” or “in a second” and then never come over.  Just be honest.  I don’t mind if you are not going to sign, but I hate standing around excited for nothing.

Obviously I don’t do enough in-person autographing…
