Yogi's the first


1969 Mets reunion
I've met Yogi Berra a couple of times but never had a chance to get his autograph. I remedied that today at a show in Secaucus, immersing myself in a sea of Yankee fans to do so.

But rather than go with a black-and-white 8x10 photo in the true Yankee Stadium or the ubiquitous Hall of Fame postcard, I had the idea to recognize his Mets tenure, hence this photo. My hope is to fill it in with the other five -- Nolan Ryan, Jerry Grote, Tom Seaver, Jerry Koosman and Duffy Dyer. I've got Ryan and Seaver separately on other items, but I'd love to get them all together here.

And so the quest begins...

That's a nice project photo.

How was the crowd today? I went yesterday and it was mobbed.

It was crowded (I was #167 for Yogi and didn't get to him until 2:30, half an hour past his window). I actually suspect it was probably more mobbed yesterday with Mattingly, Reggie and the two newest HOFers.
