Toronto FanExpo 2012: Pic of BOOKER T w/ Raw Deal
« on: August 27, 2012, 02:12:37 PM »
Meeting Booker T was awesome at FanExpo. For $30, you got his new book in hardcover signed (it had to be personalized) and you also got another item of yours just signed any way you wanted and you also got to take a pic.

Here is the pic, this is the Raw Deal card I had him sign and pose with.

For my book, I had the balls (stupidity/badtaste?) to ask him to sign it, "Neil, I'm comin' for you!" He thought that was funny and he did so, he also added the word "sucka" to the end of it.

Well played Booker. Well played.

I'm fairly sure enough time has passed that Booker can look back and laugh at that infamous promo. Plus, it's pretty obvious that in the heat of the moment the line came to him naturally.

I once had Rich "Goose" Gossage sign an 8x10 "To Mike, F**k you, you motherf**ker. Rich "Goose" Gossage, HoF '08". He laughed when I made the request, because he knows he's infamous for dropping "motherf**ker" before Samuel L. Jackson made it trendy.

Either way, nice to hear you had a good experience.

Nice.

I hope you don't mind, but this was worth a photo imbed, so I updated your post for you.

Congrats on meeting the Bookerman.
