My name is Donna and I have discovered a new hobby. I love to collect autographs of my favorite sports stars, celebrities, authors, etc. I have only been collecting for a couple of months and I have been very successful, so I would like to share my successes with others and maybe we can start sharing addresses, etc. I mainly collect TTM (Through the Mail) Autographs but will also post those that I get from other venues as well. Thanks for visiting. This is gonna be fun!

My Longview Texas Boy, Chris Davis of the Texas Rangers and Indiana Jones' woman Karen Allen + Vince Papale!
From Wikipedia: Christopher Lyn Davis (born March 17, 1986 in Longview, Texas) is a Major league baseball third baseman for the Texas Rangers.
Davis was drafted by the Texas Rangers in the fifth round of the 2006 MLB Draft. On June 26, 2008, the Rangers called up Davis from Triple-A Oklahoma City, and that day he made his major-league debut in a game against the Houston Astros, getting a hit in his first Major League at-bat. Davis started his first Major League game at first base on June 28, 2008, and hit his first Major League home run during the game. He also homered the next day as well, becoming the first Texas Ranger to homer in both of his first two Major League starts. By virtue of his hot start with the Rangers, and his considerable power as a batter, Davis has been dubbed "Crush Davis" by local media and fans (a play on "Crash Davis" from the movie Bull Durham).
