Maury Wills Autograph Signing

Former Dodger Maury Wills made an appearance during a Rancho Cucamonga Quakes game. I wasn't sure about attending this event since I already have multiple items signed by Maury. At the same time I had to take advantage of the short drive from home and needed my autograph fix. What is an autograph fix? I'm like a drug addict but with autographs. If I go a while without attending a signing I feel pressure and stress. I'm happy to report that I got my fix today.

Anyways, back to the signing. Just like the last signing I attended I arrived in my work clothes. When I entered the stadium I went directly to the autograph line and noticed less than 50 people in line. The line moved slow the entire signing since this was an actual meet and greet event. We were not rushed like a herd of cattle. Once it was my turn I got my item signed, got a posed pic and got the hell out of there. I was up at 4:00 a.m and worked all day so I was very tired.

Signing Recap:
  • People in line? Less than 50.
  • Items per person? Multiple items with a chance to get back in line.
  • Giveaways? None.
  • Free signing? Free with paid admission.

Maury took his time during the signing. He also inscribed whatever you wanted.
