Lenny Dykstra

I met him at Dunedin Stadium at Grant Field in Dunedin, Florida in 1994, when the Philadelphia Phillies came to play the Toronto Blue Jays in a spring training game.
He nearly didn't sign for me. He was exiting the clubhouse on his way to the team bus. I was standing on the opposite side of the fence. When I called out to him asking for an autograph, he held up his hands, each with a canned soda and said "can't, my hands are full." I quickly responded, "I'll hold them for you." He stopped and laughed and then said "I'm only signing for you."

Lenny signed a 1993 Upper Deck card #69.

Cal Ripken, Jr.

My brother, Brian and I went to Dunedin Stadium at Grant Field in Dunedin, Florida to see the Baltimore Orioles play the Toronto Blue Jays in a spring training game. Prior to the game, my brother was asked if he'd like to be the Orioles bat boy. Of course, he jumped at the chance. For some reason I gave my brother my binder of unsigned cards and pictures so that he could keep them in the locker room.
Around the 4th or 5th inning, Cal was being taken out of the game. My brother told him that he had a picture that he was hoping to get signed by him. Cal told him that he would go and sign it for him. Thankfully, Cal spotted my magazine along with my brother's picture and signed it as well.

Cal signed the cover of the March 1992 issue of Beckett Baseball Card Monthly.
