I went to a show in St. Louis today and went all out for Bob Lilly today. Posed photographs were not allowed, but I snapped some photos of him signing for me. He signed the September 9, 1963 cover for me - which I actually bought for $10 at the show and did not previously have, so I bought another ticket on a whim, and then he also appeared on the cover on January 9, 1967, and I believe this is the first time I've gotten an SI cover signed on the anniversary of a specific edition.

Bob really liked my covers, as he wanted to look at and check out the 1963 one, then pointed out the other men about the 1967 cover - noting Willie Townes was gone, George Andrie was gone, Bart Starr was gone, then pointed to himself on the cover and jokingly said, "Gone."

Also, for a non-SI success, I thought I'd also throw in that he signed my 8x10 I previously got signed by Jim Brown. I paid an inscription ticket for this photo, while I didn't for the SIs. I asked Bob if he tackled Brown in the photo, he said Jim is a good friend of his, and Jim told him that if he ever touched him, then he brought him down. I got Jim on this at a show in 2010 during my Pre-SI days.

Bob was a nice man.
