I'm experimenting with posting picture. Here is a page from my Winning One Pocket book. Do you know most of these? Better question... how many have you played?

Of the one's I could read. I played only nine.
Roger Griffis, Grady Mathews, Mike Sigel, Cliff Joiner, Bill Stanton, Jack Briet, Eddie Kelly, Earl Strickland, Jeremy Jones.

I spent time with, Jay Swanson, James Brown ( if it's the same one), David Matlock, Eddie Talyor, Bugs Rucker, Rafael Martinez.
Rod.
P.S. Swason, Matlock, and Taylor were the most unassuming.

I've played only 2.

I am 0-2 so far. Could be worse.

I played John Schmidt first. I was constantly kicking 3 rails to hit a ball. I still need work on that.

When I played Raphael Martinez....there was no talking. He didn't talk, so I didn't. Which was OK, my racking didn't take long. That man has a game face.

Frank...that's a great list of signers.

I'll bet you have played a few.

...and our HOF honors some of course

11 only. I cant believe Frank could put up a list where I wouldnt have played more players than anybody else! Too many "younger" players. I consider Jeremy Jones a younger player.

Strike that. Make it 12. Edwin Kelly is the Eddie Kelly right?

Strike what you just struck. Make it 14, with a couple maybe's to go even higher. I may have played Jay Swanson banks at the Rack, and I am pretty sure I might have played Raphael at the Billiard Cafe in Chicago.

I knew that old sonuvabeach Henderson couldnt have played more of those guys than me! Good thing I checked and rechecked.

I am sure I played another one or two who were in disguise.:lol

Some of mine were in tournaments and not for the cheese, and the ones I did gamble wih probably got the dough.

Rod, that is Youngblood James Brown. I believe he was from Texas. I got his autograph in 1993 at the LA Open. The one pocket there was won by Steve Cook. I also have his autograph.

Other names here that may not be recognizable are Mike Boyce under Matlock, Leonardo Andam under Lebron, and Ralf Souquet bottom right corner under Santos.

I tried to have another sheet of paper with me to print their name when getting autographs in case some would be illegible like the one under Ed Kelly. I can't remember who that was. Maybe someone here can help me out with that.

Sorry Freddy but my list has me playing 15 of them. I might add one more because I'm not sure about Chamat ( I think he snuck in on me). Maybe my list is longer because I'm from the younger generation.

Steve, you're also in my book along with John Henderson. Island Drive, I need yours.

P.S. there's a few here in this site that I would love to get also. Freddy you're one of them if you ever leave your area since I doubt that I will ever get out your way.
Gulfportdoc hooked me up with Marshall Carpenter a couple of years ago and I was able to get Marshall to send me His autograph and I pasted it under his picture in the book. I might have to do this with yours.

You got the book, right Frank? I know I autographed it.

I have played at least 23 of the players that autographed your book, I noticed the Santo's is in there twice. Boyce i may have played but I can't remember who he is. Also the last autograph in your book is too hard for me to make out who it is. :confused:

Jeez!! i'm feeeling older all the time, anyways Merry Christmas and I wish I would of collected all the greats and their autographs, great job.
