On Wednesday August 1, 2012, Clayton Kershaw had a public autograph signing at Frank & Son's. The signing was put on by Honabach and Sons and OC Dugout. Kershaw was originally scheduled to sign from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. but the night before the signing, the start time was changed to 6:00 p.m. I arrived early by 5:00 p.m. and there were only a few people picking up their tickets at will call.
Kershaw arrived on time and immediately started signing. He's a quiet guy but definitely made time to chat it up with fans. I purchased V.I.P. tickets so I went through the line pretty quick. My ticket number was in the high 20's.
As you can see in the picture above, I got Kershaw to sign my 2011 Gold Glove winners picture which Kemp & Ethier had already signed. I also got my ROMLB 2011 All Star Game ball signed by Kershaw. The ball had already been signed by Kemp and now I just need to add Ethier.
Check out my other pictures below. Shout out to Michael who helped me pass the time in line. I met Michael the week before at an auction at the OC Dugout.
