Yasiel Puig Autograph Signing - Photos & Recap

On Saturday June 29, 2013, in conjunction with JD Legends Promotions, OC Dugout and Honabach and Sons hosted a Yasiel Puig autograph signing at Frank & Son Collectible Show.  After I got Scott Van Slyke's autograph (click here) at around 10:45am, I headed over to the autograph pavilion. Puig was scheduled to start signing at 11:30am.  I know the Puig signing was pretty expensive but I was out of town the weekend South Bay Cards hosted the more reasonably priced signing before the season started.  Since Puig is the hottest thing in the game and I don't make it out to Dodger Stadium for graphing, I figured I'd fork over some dollars for this signing.

This signing included a little extra as each person was able to take a posed professional photo with Yasiel Puig.  The line was orderly and quick due to the fact the photos were taken by a professional photographer. Above you can see my ROMLB I got signed.  One thing that I found very interesting was that after Puig signed any item, an official Yasiel Puig hologram was placed on the item.  Check it out below.

Not quite sure why his handlers were doing this, I can only assume that it helps ensure that it is an official Yasiel Puig signature.  There were several other Dodgers that were part of this signing and they included Matt Kemp, Jerry Hairston, Nick Punto, Steve Yeager and Tommy Davis.  I didn't get any of their autographs however, I did snap a few photos.  Check them out.  I've also included the professional photos that were taken.
