2001 Arizona Diamondbacks Sports Illustrated

Probably the coolest thing I got signed at the 2011 All-Star Game Fan Fest was a Sports Illustrated from when the Diamondbacks won the World Series in 2001.

Back in February, my wife found the magazine in a box she hadn't gone through since we moved. I asked if I could have it. She obliged and I quickly began thinking of how I was going to get it signed.

A few weeks later, I got to work. At the Diamondbacks Fan Fest I was able to get autographs from D-Backs legends, Mark Grace and Matt Williams.

At the All-Star Game Fan Fest, I was able to add a lot more. It is now signed by nine members of the 2001 World Champion Arizona Diamondbacks. Pretty cool.

  1. I have that issue! It's not signed and everything, but it's on my bookshelf.

  2. Great stuff right there!! It's very nice to see so many members of the WS still active with the club. In Florida, it is not like that at all...
