I Left My Heart In San Francisco

I left my heart in San Francisco
High on a hill, it calls to me

I Left My Heart In San Francisco was one OF THE MANY big time hits from the legendary Tony Bennett. Someone my grandmother listened to often.

In my chase of celebrity autographs, I try to find ones that play a role with my past in some form. And even though I am not technically a fan of the singer other than watching from afar, he was on my list to get. How can you not at least watch this guy from afar? A guy who has won over 20 Grammy's and brought home a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.

That sounds like someone I needed to TTM attempt alone.

And like others I saw, I had success. And he was pretty fast about returning it as well.

To finish out today's mail day roll call, I will also mention two fun facts you may or may not know about Tony.
  • The 92 year old Bennett will be in my state in August doing a concert. The guy keeps on chugging at his age and you have got to respect that as well. 
  • He is a painter as well as captures images out his hotel room windows while on tour. I haven't seen any of his art but I bet it's amazing.
If you are reading this Tony or stumble upon this, thank you for returning my request. It's going into my Hall Of Fame of autographs.

  1. Nice success! I'm not a huge fan of his music, but he's still a big-time name to get an auto from, especially via TTM. My only memories of Tony are from growing up listening to old Rat Pack live albums, it wasn't uncommon for the guys to poke fun at Tony, always in a playful way, but still terribly funny. And who forget Martin Short's impressions of Tony as well, those have held up pretty well, or at least they still make me laugh.

  2. Awesome TTM. I almost bought a Tony Bennett San Francisco Giants SGA bobble head that sings I left my heart in SF last weekend at the flea market... but the guy wasn't budging on his asking price.
