I got a tip that Shin Shin Choo would be at a bank at a Korean Bank today at 11:30. I found this tip to be pretty strange, because its not often you see an opposing player use his off time when he is on the road to do an autograph signing. I guess Choo is partners with this bank, and there might not be many locations in Cleveland. Since I didn't see the signing listed anywhere else on the web, I thought it might be really low key. When I got there I saw maybe 20 people outside the bank, and a line of another 20 was inside the bank. Choo was already signing when I got there at 11:15, I guess the signing started at 11, not 11:30 like I originally heard. People were getting back in line behind me for the second dip and told me he was signing one per person. The line was moving pretty slow for the amount of people that were there and the fact that he was only doing on per person, and by the time I got to the front, the signing was almost over, so I was unable to get back in line. Choo signed the first card, and I asked him if he could sign the Allen and Ginter as well, he didn't seem to have a problem doing that.
There were maybe six or seven of the usual graphers that came out for this event, the rest of the people in line were Korean and seemed to be big Choo fans, I saw a number of jerseys and even a couple game used bats that were signed. At the end of the signing they had a raffle and Choo raffled off two signed jerseys and two signed baseballs, I usually know I am not going to win any sort of raffle, but with the small crowd I decided to stick around to hear the numbers. The numbers were announced in Korean and I needed to find some lady just to tell me I didn't win. All in all it was a fun way to spend a Tuesday morning.
