Throwback Thursday: Autographed photos 1997-99

For the 1st installment of Throwback Thursday I wanted to present 4 autographed 4×6 photos that I took and had signed between 1997-99.  This is an important time for me.  It was during this time that I was able to attend Oakland Athletics games on a fairly regular basis.  The first 2 pictures were taken on June 12, 1997.  This was the first interleague game for the Oakland Athletics.  On this day the took on the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Athletics went on to win by the score of 5-4.

The next photo was taken sometime in 1998 (possibly April vs. the Minnesota Twins) of former catcher A.J. Hinch.  The Athletics would trade Hinch to the Kansas City Royals after the 2000 season.  This was a 3 team trade that brought Johnny Damon to the Athletics, also sending Ben Grieve to the Tampa Bay Rays.

This last photo was taken in 1999 of former catcher Ramon Hernandez.  Ramon would be a workhorse for the Athletics until the end of the 2003 season when he was traded to the San Diego Padres.
