This year's show happened to include a change of venue from the Cow Palace in San Francisco to the Santa Clara Convention Center. The convention center is located right across the street from the 49ers new stadium, Levi's Stadium, and being a Niner fan it was a must to snap a couple of pics.

Now for the autographs, I was able to get former San Francisco Giant Kevin Mitchell and current Giant pitcher Tim Hudson on ROMLB's. Both guys were very friendly and Mitchell was kind enough to inscribe "NL 1989 MVP" for free.

Now for the guy that most people attended the event for, MLB's Home Run King (Yes, he still is in the record books.), Barry Bonds. Yes, Bonds cheated, and yes, he lied to a grand jury, but he is still very much loved by San Francisco fans, and that was apparent by the 300 tickets they sold in less than two months. This was Bonds' first autograph signing in over ten years, so I decided to go big and get a couple of premiums signed, starting with an authentic jersey signed and inscribed "7x MVP".

I was also able to get a Bonds model SSK bat signed along with "#762 HR's" along with the dual authentication.
