On Saturday April 6, 2013, Tim Wallach was scheduled to sign autographs from 11am to 1pm at Harry's Dugout in the city of Whittier. I had never been to Harry's dugout so I decided to head out early to give myself some extra time. I arrived a few minutes after 10am and found only a couple of people waiting outside. At 11am when Wallach arrived, the line had grown to about 25 people.
Wallach began signing right away and was very cordial to everyone in line. Before he signed my items, he asked if I had been out to a game yet this season. I let him know I was at Opening Day and he replied, "that was a good day". I thanked him for signing my items and he thanked me for coming to the signing. Overall this was an excellent signing. Harry's Dugout is a relatively small card shop so only about 4 or 5 fans are allowed inside at time. This allows for a more personal experience. Fans can chat with the signer and take posed pictures as well. I got a ROMLB signed by Wallach as well as a Cal State Fullerton mini helmet. Wallach was the 1979 Golden Spikes Award winner for being the best college player and was a member of the Cal State Fullerton 1979 College World Series championship team. Check out my pics below.
