This would go beautifully with the Joey Votto jersey I purchased for my son. Votto is his favorite player, and it’s hard to disagree with that.

I am a big Reds fan, I watch every game on tv. I even got the Reds on my class ring. I went to Redsfest and got in Joey Votto’s line but it got cut off 2 people in front of me. I was so sad.

I would really really love to win this for my best friend. Joey is her favorite player!

I would love to give this to my son for Christmas; he’s a huge Reds fan and wasn’t able to get Joey’s autograph at Redsfest.

Thank you again for the opportunity! Looking forward to big things for the Reds!

I grew up in Cardinal’s country with a Dad who is a big card’s fan and my Husband was successful in converting me to a full-fledged Reds fan (much to my Dad’s dismay). Joey Votto is definitely my favorite player. Votto the Hotto!

I should win because Joey Votto is my favorite player. It would look good in my Cincinnati Reds room. I have tried to get Joey Votto autograph numerous times all have been unsuccessfully.

I would love to give this to my sister. She is a big Reds fan. She talks about the Reds about all the time esecipally Joey Votto, he is her favorite player.

I really need a Joey Votto ball for my collection

Joey Votto is the best and I would be honored to have an autographed baseball from him. It would have a place of honor in my home. Thank you.

My wife would think I was the coolest husband ever if I won this for her.

Joey Votto is my favorite player and I would love to have this. Thanks!

Winning this would be awesome. Would make a great piece to my Reds memorabilia collection!

My 5 year old niece’s favorite player is Votto and I need to get her a stocking stuffer!!

Joey Votto is always in #beastmode

The last baseball game I attended with my mother was a Dayton Dragons game in 2004. A young Joey Votto played a great game that night in the beautiful 5\3 Field. After many Reds games with mom she decided that she would root for Joey to see him through the minors and into the major leagues with her beloved Reds. She passed away from cancer in 2005 and never saw Joey in the major leagues, but I sure have! Everytime I watch him play, I can see her rooting in those stands in Dayton, Ohio for him.

My Son would love a Votto autograph!

Because I love Joey Votto! Also because from 1995-2000 I drove out from northeast Pennsylvania to opening day in Cincinnati. I had to stop once my twin sons were born.

This would be amazing to add to my collection :)

I love the reds! Joey V is the man! This autographed ball would complement the empty walls in my apartment. I need some decorations pr man!

Pick me!! Pick me!!!!!!
