Friendly Encounters

This is weekly feature highlighting friends who have met celebs.

When we last saw John Schenk, he was pictured with Glenn Brummer, former major league catcher. Schenk represents Brummer for public appearances.
Schenk's company, Show-Me-State Signatures is having a signing event this Saturday, February 6 in Marion, IL. The event is a Cardinals Public Signing, featuring six former St. Louis Cardinals.
Marty Marion, George Altman, Ken Reitz, Glenn Brummer, John Costello and Brendan Ryan will all be signing at the event. This is a nice variety of Cardinals past and present.
Despite the fact that Altman and Reitz played for my beloved Cubs, my faithful readers should know who my favorite from that group is. Ohhh I love a solid backup catcher (see my Backup Catcher Hall of Fame pieces).
If you can't make the event, you can still get signatures through mail order. You still have until February 3 to use the mail order option.
Last July, Schenk held his first private signing. Hall of Fame third baseman Brooks Robinson was a great choice for their first signing. According to Schenk, Robinson was a class act who was happy to share stories and take pictures with everyone.
Once again, I thank Schenk for sharing his pictures and stories. I encourage everyone to check out his site. I look forward to more updates from Schenk in the future.
