Contacted Coach Jud Logan through the Ashland University Athletic Dept website and asked if he would be willing to sign his July 1986 Track & Field News cover, and he said of course. He signed in an awesome gold Sharpie, and added an inscription of 4x Olympian and drew the Olympic rings, as well as a hammer. He was also generous enough to send along two color photos also signed and inscribed. I did some research before sending out the request and was surprised to find out he has a pretty impressive coaching tree.
Found Anthony Davis' autobiography If My Nikes Could Talk at the used bookstore and picked it up for $5.50. Has a great inscription with the "Notre Dame Killer" nickname. This is my second Anthony Davis signed piece. This book seems like it was published by
a small publishing house, but the forward to the book is written by Willie Mays.
Found a signed copy of Dennis Byrd's autobiography Rise and Walk at a used bookstore for $2. The New York Jets player became paralyzed during a game in 1992, but eventually learned to walk again. Tragically he was killed in a car accident in 2016.
