Almost perfect memorabilia

Plantation-based Mounted Memories has inked a deal with “Almost Perfect” Detroit Tigers pitcher Armando Galarraga, who was one out away from the 21st perfect game in Major League Baseball history, when umpire Jim Joyce admitted botching the call.

Through the agreement with Mounted Memories, a division of Plantation-based Dreams Inc., Galarraga will sign baseballs and photos with the date of the game -- June 2, 2010 -- and the phrase "Almost Perfect" or "Nobody's Perfect." He'll also make personal appearances.

“Armando is a terrific person, and June 2, 2010 displayed two extraordinary performances – his pitching and his poise," Mounted Memories President Mitch Adelstein said in a statement. "We are thrilled to work with Mounted Memories to celebrate this unprecedented event.”
