Dodger Day at the L.A. County Fair

I hope everybody had a good Christmas. Here are videos from the L.A. county fair in Pomona. I recorded these on September 17, 2009. These videos were posted in the past but took them off because I was having problems with the uploads. Hopefully I got it right this time.

Steve Garvey, Bill Russell, Tommy Davis, Maury Wills, and Ron Cey made appearances at the fair. The line was long when I arrived and moved very slow. I had already missed Steve Garvey but I didn't worry since I had multiple items already signed by him. I was fortunate to get three of the four remaining Dodgers. Check out the videos of Bill Russell, Tommy Davis, and Ron Cey signing my Dodgers jersey.

Bill Walton Autograph Signing

Bill Walton made an appearance at Kia Motors in Irvine. The autographs were free of charge and the event was better than I had anticipated. Breakfast and lunch were given out for free by Kia. I had Bill sign a basketball with the incsription "Hall of Fame 93". He also signed a couple of photos for me.

This is one of the best events I have ever been to. The line was indoors and all fans got to eat for free. It was also a small turnout which made it easier to get multiple items signed.

Signing Recap:
  • People in line? I would guess around 75 people.
  • Items per person? Multiple items.
  • Giveaways? Food and goody bags.
  • Free Signing? Yes.

Thanks to Kia Motors for this really cool event. I would also like to thank the kind and courteous employees at Kia for making it an even better experience.

Bill Russell, Al Ferrara & Greg Townsend Autograph Signings

Former Dodgers Bill Russell and Al "The Bull" Ferrara made an appearance to sign autographs today. It was at the annual holiday open house at Hall of Fame Sports in San Dimas. The autographs were free of charge. I purchased a photo of each former Dodger to get signed. Al Ferrara was a very nice man and seemed really happy to be there. Bill Russell was also in a good mood and did not hesitate to take a photo with me when I asked.

Thanks to Hall of Fame Sports for this free autograph signing.

Greg Townsend Autograph Signing

Greg Townsend made an appearance at a Raider Image store where he was going to sign autographs. It took place at the Ontario Mills Mall in Ontario, Ca. I thought the signing was free but found out upon arrival that a purchase was necessary for an autograph. I then purchased a photo. Greg is a really cool guy. We even talked some TCU football who is currently undefeated and where he played college ball.

Thanks to the Raider Image Store and Greg Townsend for this appearance.
