Featured autograph - Tim Salmon

Had an opportunity to get several items signed by Angels franchise legend Tim Salmon when he was doing a promotional appearance at Angel Stadium for Can-Am Spyder - a roadster of sorts originating from Canada.

Salmon is my favorite player and probably recognize him as the greatest Angel to put on the uniform as far as a guy who was drafted and developed in the organization - sorry to the more prominent and nationally recognized former Halos [i.e. a Nolan Ryan, a Reggie Jackson, a Rod Carew] who started their careers somewhere else.

At his appearance, he made his way to do a meet-and-greet with the Spyder owners - before actually coming over to sign for the rest of the people who showed up to get his autograph.

He was pleasant and took the time to take pictures with everyone who wanted one - as the line to get his autograph died down, I did overhear him say he probably could sign autographs all day long, but what got kind of tiresome was getting up from the table and posing for pictures. I think that tidbit was interesting to overhear, but I think he was just telling it like it was from his standpoint and didn't mean anything malicious.
