J.J. Munoz

I met him at a Minor League Clearwater Phillies game at Jack Russell Memorial Stadium in Clearwater, Florida in 1993.
Kind of embarrassing but I remember J.J. was called in to pitch in the top of the 8th inning, but for some reason I thought it was the 9th inning. After he got the third out I immediately ran to the dugout to seek his autograph. He points to the scoreboard and says "after the game." It was then that I realized there was still an inning to go. As promised, J.J. came over to sign at the conclusion of the game.

J.J. signed a 1992 Fleer Pro Cards card #2056.

Brant Brown

I met him at a Minor League game at Jack Russell Memorial Stadium in Clearwater, Florida in 1993, when the Daytona Cubs came to play the Clearwater Phillies.
I am forever grateful for meeting Brant. When I handed him the card for him to sign, he asked me, "did you rub the gloss off?" I was sort of confused and said no. He then proceeds to take his thumbs and rub the front of the card. He explained doing this will prevent the autograph from smearing. It's a lesson I used throughout my autograph collecting years, especially as more and more card companies went toward glossier coated finishes.

Brant signed a 1992 Classic Draft Picks card #58.

D.J. Steve Dee

On April 1, 2006, Main Street Lounge in Louisville, Kentucky hosted a free turntablist show featuring D.J. QBert, Rob Swift, Grand Wizard Theodore, and D.J. Steve Dee.
After the show I saw Steve Dee waiting outside for a cab. I had the phone number to the taxi company in my phone, so I gave it to him so he could call and get a ride to his hotel.
A couple of months later I'm on Myspace and I find D.J. Steve Dee's page, so I add him as a friend. Later that day I see I have a private message from him. He was thanking me for giving him the taxi's phone number. I thought that was really cool that he remembered that.

D.J. Steve Dee signed the front cover of the Scratch DVD.
