    I did too, early to mid '70s. I got his autograph...
    We were standing by their bus after the game. He boarded the bus and sat in the front seat.
    I walked to the bus and onto the bus steps and got his autograph.
    I think that was the first time I realized that if you act like you know what you're doing and that you belong where you're at, you can get away with quite a lot. I was somewhere in the 9 - 12 age range. I've used that rule several times over the years to sit in seats that were a lot better than the seating location on my ticket.
