This morning I met Tully Blanchard and Tessa Blanchard as they were doing an autograph singing at a card shop at one of the local malls here in Las Vegas. I met Tessa before at Expo Lucha back in August but this was my first time meeting Tully.
I asked Tully what his favorite matches were and he told me perhaps the I Quit match because that was the match he got paid the most for during his career.
I got my copy of Tully Blanchard's LOW card autographed and Tully also autographed his photo in my WWE Encyclopedia (over the years I have acquired alot of great autographs in this WWE Encyclopedia including Hulk Hogan, Roddy Piper, Ricky Steamboat, Mick Foley, CM Punk, Rey Mysterio, Stan Hansen, Vader, the Steiners, Booker T, Sgt. Slaughter, Lex Luger, Godfather, Bob Orton, Honkytonk Man, Jimmy Hart, John Morrison, Cody Rhodes, and many many more. )
Tully Blanchard was my World Champion in my LOW fed before recently losing the title to Bruiser Brody and Tessa Blanchard is actually my current WOV Champion in my ROV fed.

If you go to Chumlee of Pawn Stars (is that still on?), I bet you could get a lot of $$$ for it when you finally sell it all, LOL!
Kidding, cause I'd keep that collection forever if I were you!
Anyway, keep up the good work, and tell us all about all those fun encounters (and not so fun sometimes) you have along the way!
