Longtime readers may remember that I used to keep track of autograph show appearances and private signings with former and current Mets players. I stopped sometime last year because it was rare for me to find an appearance by anyone I still needed at a price that I could afford, so I chose to write about other things when I had the time.

A look at my year-end readership stats showed that you are still looking for these posts, so I’m going to bring them back for 2014.

With the holiday season now behind us, there are plenty of area events for you to visit this month if you want to work on your autograph collection.
