This seems like an unrelated post under the thread you started here, "Wanted to buy inexpensive Hank Aaron signed ball".

May I suggest starting a new thread under the descriptor "Ever met anyone famous in a public bathroom?"
That's funny. I should do that. Bet there are neat stories out there.

Iím confused by your thread. Do you want to buy a Hank Aaron ball or are you just discussing a previous desire to purchase a ball with a strong signature for substantially less than the market price that youíve subsequently realized is a bit silly and have now given up on? If itís the former, this is the wrong section to be posting in and you may want to clarify if ultimately decide to post in the right place. If itís the later, good for you.

As for your bathroom story, I have so many jokes but am not going to mention any of them.

I did pick up a questionable ball for $24. Folks here ruled it to be fake. So I went ahead and spent more and got a PSA ball for $110. I learned a lot from the forum with this trek. Thank you!

Good job, 24 dollars isn't a bad price to learn a valuable lesson!

For the future , your first desire should be to find an authentic item, not the cheapest. The cheapest will generally not meet the authentic criteria.

If we're going down that road, here's a photo I took inside the men's room just inside the Gate 4 entry at Yankee Stadium after the 2.00pm tour, November 12, 2008.

This photograph was taken, and is shared here, for historical, archival, and educational purposes. It should be noted that when using these urinals for their intended purpose, and in the intended manner, the user would be facing towards the field.

I did run into Ed O'Neil (Al Bundy) in the early 1990's in the bathrooms of an empty Universal Amphitheater during a comic relief warm-up. Nicest guy ever....And Tony Danza and Marcel Dionne at the old Forum Club. I think that's it, but that's all I can mis remember.
