Because An Autograph Post Is Easier Than A Layoff Post

Yeah I got laid off today, reduction in force they call it in aerospace, after 13 years on the program.

So with that, how about some autographs to take my mind off it!
(These all came in in the last couple weeks.)

Tommy Goodwin, 12 days c/o the New York Mets.

Danny Darwin 9 day from his home in nearby Sanger, TX.

Ryan Bolden 113 days mailed to Angels Spring Training in Tempe, AZ.
Added a nice note too.

Check the smiley with the wagging tongue.

Chris James 13 days from his business Fish and Still Equipment Inc.

Franklin Stubbs 13 days from the Albuquerque Isotopes (one of the best team names in baseball).

Mickey Morandini 18 days from the Lakewood Blueclaws.

Needed Brad Hawpe for my all-time Angels collection.  
Got him in a trade.

Needed these two for the set, one by trade and twoeth by gift.

I mailed a request to the Rangers asking for a signed (or unsigned) Nolan Ryan business card.
They sent an autopen team issued card.
Still pretty cool.


  1. Sorry to hear about your layoff. Stay positive, you'll find something soon enough!

  2. I, too, am sorry to hear about your layoff. Best wishes!

  3. Stubbs has an interesting autograph, and yeah, gotta love the Simpson's reference with the Isotopes. Take care man, hope everything works out on the job front. God bless!

  4. Ack! Bummer. You were so cheerful in the card package I received today!

    Good luck. Have confidence you'll bounce back. Positive mindset junk actually works.

  5. Ahhh man. Sorry to hear. Best of luck.

  6. Bummer. Hope you're able to find a new job quickly. Nice graphs... especially the autopenned Nolan Ryan.

  7. Sorry to hear about that. But, on a positive note, nice 'graphs. I really like the Stubbs signature.

  8. Sorry to hear about your layoff. Hope you are getting a package of some sort to tide you over until you find something.
