Well, I didn't get Fantasy Camp for Christmas, but I did get a ball covered with replica autographs of Your 2008 Cincinnati Reds. Of course, they didn't tell me who exactly is on there. Hey, I thought, this ought to keep the RR gang amused for about 5 of the approximately 61,000 minutes until pitchers and catchers report.
It's very unclear when the signatures were gathered -- quite possibly before the season, so perhaps no Cueto and Volquez. There are 27 signatures, and one is Dusty.
So, here are the pictures. How many can you figure out? One million points to whoever can identify the most autographs, with a bonus one million to whoever gets the 27th one.
Jeff Keppinger is easy in this one. Looks like Ryan Branyan in the middle, except that Ryan Branyan doesn't exist. Maybe it says Ryan Farney?
Stanton is easy. The other one is hard.
Looks like Hit By Pitch, but maybe it's #4 Brandon Phillips?
CoCo and Jr. and.... Dan Valentine? Huh? Could be Alex Gonzalez on there, too.
Looks like Bronson is a better singer than speller.
Dusty and Weathers and a bunch more.
That's 7 I'm reasonably confident in, leaving 20 more. Li'l help?
(Besides, I'd get hurt in fantasy camp anyway. Yeah, that's the ticket.)
(And by the way, it's not for sale. This baby is my retirement. You can't get these reproduction autographs anywhere except at www.autoball.com for $12.)
