View Full Version : Oscar De La Hoya Faceplate

06-16-2008, 10:54 AM
So yesterday my mom calls me and ask if I want to go meet Oscar De La Hoya. Duh, who wouldn't. While I'm waiting on my ride, it hits me, Oscar is in Fight Night, so why not get him to autograph a plate. We get their, get our books, chillin in line and they give us this piece of paper that says
"Oscar will only sign copy's of his book "American Son" No other memorabilia, items, pics, ect... No personalized sigs, No posed photos" Me being me, I'm gonna try anyway. I broke two of the rules.
My turn up, the handler takes my book, Oscar signs it, shakes my hand, then I pulled it out. I said "Sir, I know you play Xbox, my friends and I love you in Fight Night, would you please sign my faceplate?" He took it from me, said "thats really cool" and signed it.

From the sound of it, he has never been asked to sign one before. As soon as he started to sign it, his handlers were pissed as you can tell by the look on the guys face behind me.

He's a really nice guy, really cool, down to earth guy. Stopped for people and took pics, held babies, everything. Top notch guy.

very slick.

I would have done the same thing. Oscar De La Hoya is a boxer that will not let his fans down. So I would have pulled out my xbox and got him to sign that too. hahahaha

Good going.

I was at a Bret Hart signing and brought a faceplate, but didn't have the balls to ask after he signed my book :(

Nice job though, that's definetly a keeper
