AJ Foyt is probably the greatest Indy car driver in history, so I was glad to get his signature on these issues. His autograph looks pretty different between the two. His website said that they don't accept autograph requests through the mail, but I guess they do.
This one was a little random and took a little bit of detective work to locate, but turned out a success. I just Googled some of the names and I found a business address for Dixie Smith Luque, so I mailed it to her office. It's always a little difficult with females because their last names could have changed. I thought her response to my comment in the letter I included was interesting.
This was a third time request. Herschel has always returned his requests quickly, and now I finally have all of his SI covers autographed. Notice how there is a greeting on each cover. Probably the best signer I have dealt with through the mail.
This was the first magazine I received back after resuming the hobby after taking a few months off. Todd Marinovich grew up locally and was a little bit older than me, so I remember reading a lot about him. His dad groomed him to be a professional football player, never allowing him to eat processed sugars, Big Macs or even drink a Coke.
