This stuff is great, but it's funny how some of those guys look less than pleased to have to take a few seconds to pose for a picture. That's hilarious.

Can you rate each person shown as to how engaging they were with you and yours??
1 (bad) to 10 (marvelous).

Good idea...here goes!

* Brock was really quiet. Polite but not really engaging. 5
* Carew was really nice. Asked him to sign Rodney Cline Carew and he said he didnt know how! He meant it. 7
* Cepeda was quiet. He seemed to process things slowly and acted older than his age. Still nice, though, and signed his full name for me. 6
* Feller was awesome. A little proud but really engaging and his eyes lit up when I handed him my 40s model glove. Put it on his hand and he seemed to be transported elsewhere as he told me the history of that glove. Great man. 9
* Ford was nice and polite. More focused on my twins which was fine with me. 7
* Carlton was awesome. Despite his reputation, he chatted me up and jumped up to take a pic. He loved the Cy Young project he signed for me and asked lots of questions. 9
* Ripken was the consummate professional. Brought his own backdrop, talked to me and my daughter like we were the only ones there. Signed for a group then took a break to take pictures with everyone. Expensive but well worth the money. 10
* Ozzie was fantastic, true to his nature as an ambassador of the game. Chatted and happy to take pictures. 8
* Murray was nicer than I expected. Serious but polite and seemed like a nice guy who didnt exactly enjoy signing autographs but made a good effort. 7
* Palmer was one of the first I ever got a picture with. He was signing at a small shop and I got there at the end of the signing period. Had him to myself and he couldnt be nicer. Signed his full name and we talked for a few minutes. 8
* Reggie was, well, an asshole. But he wasnt Mays or Gibson, so he gets a 2.
* Kaline was also nicer than expected. Very engaging and happy to chat. Nice man. 8
* Yount was a nice man who gave a great signature. Nothing special. 7
* Seaver was in a weird mood. He cut himself shaving so being asked to take a picture probably didnt make his day. Hes not the nicest guy in the world. 4
* Neikro was cool...much nicer in person than expected. Good with my girls, too. 7
* Sutton was cool. Very animated and loved my daughter. 8
* Rose was a lovable jackass. He signed a 3,000 hit piece for me and started making fun of Boggs, saying he had as many singles as Boggs had hits. 7
* Erskine is a gem. A great man who mad you feel like you were the only person in the room. 9
* Newcombe is awesome. Stood up after signing to chat and shake hands for a picture. I could have talked to him all day. 9
* Shuba was super nice. Knew how to work the room and loved my girls. 9
* Lyle was kind of a prick. 4
* Richard was amazing. One of my favorite players growing up, we chatted for a few minutes. Nice man. 8
* Garvey was very polished. Comfortable working the room he talked to me like he knew me. 8

Great idea! These are really cool.

Ive met many of these folks and would echo your sentiments on almost all of them. The only one who I had a different experience with is Sparky Lyle. He was very pleasant and friendly when I met him But it was probably 20 years years ago. Maybe things have changed.

I have met every living HOFer as well (Except Griffey) and can agree with most of your assessments. Jackson is a 1 and Ripken is great at signings. However, it is interesting to see these people outside the signing circuit. I have met Ripken, Jackson and many others off the signing circuit and surprising Reggie was actually very nice, and Ripken was horrible when the Cameras were turned off.

Love those!

As bitter as Reggie looks, also looks like Robin Yount is a man of the people!

I love how it looks like you are trying to model the look on Reggie's face in the picture. It is a riot.

I would see Dr. Jim quite a bit back when he returned/attended college prior to going to dental school. It was circa 1979-1980 and he needed credits. He went to my alma mater U/Mass Boston, home of the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library. His lunch time was the same as mine. We would see him in the big cafeteria all the time. He hung out with a lot of regular students who were 25-30 years his junior. Very nice guy.
