ok, nachos...i'll bite

so nachos grande is having autograph week.  he asked for responses to some autograph theme questions. here's my at bat...
1.  What is the best autograph you own? tommy lasorda. bumped into him during a game at the ravine back in the day when i would carry a ball and a pen for just such an occasion.
2.  What is the best autograph that you've ever pulled from a pack of cards? nolan ryan. who i almost said was the best because he was my first auto (baseball) ever. bought it through the mail, but it was like getting the holy grail at the time.
3.  What is the worst autograph you've ever pulled from a pack of cards? i gotta agree with the other dude (sorry bro, who was that?) who said appreciate that somebody took the time. bunk autos but a few bunk players. see jon nunnely auto in one of my posts.  ironically, he signs quite nicely. 
4.  Do you try to get autographs through the mail?  If so, what sort of success (or failure) stories do you have?  i did back in the day. i had crazy results.  mattingly, joe carter, kirby, ramon martinez, tony gwynn, mo vaughn, paul molitor and alan trammel. 
5.  Who was the subject of your first ever autograph? see answer 2
6.  Do you actively collect any autographs (certain players, teams, brands, etc)? not now.
7.  Which is better:  Autographs or Relics? tough call. depends the player. but if i must choose one - relics cuz more good variations, and autos have too many bad variations
8.  What do you think of cut autos? i'll take one, thanks.
9.  What is your favorite autograph design (say in the last 5 years)? classic pen on ball (lol)
10.  If you could get the autograph of any five people (dead or alive) who would you want a signature from (and why)? dang dude.
1. babe ruth.   nuff said.
2. clint eastwood. on the outlaw josey wales poster i had when i was in college. 
3. john hancock    cuz homeboy could SIGN !
4. carl from aqua teen police   cuz he would write something funny on it. i know it.
5. i would say im just gonna carry that blank baseball in my pack until another good occasion pops up.
