Pineapple Sam’s unexpected adventure started in a posh hotel in Chicago where he was greeted by random guests having casual conversations at the lobby near the Grand Ballroom. The little commotion which welcomed Sam’s arrival turned out to be because of an on-going baseball card show held in the city. It was 1984 and the generation was busy with MTV, Kenny Rogers, Ghost Busters, The Karate Kid, and the first ever Apple Macintosh. Like everyone else at the time, Sam simply wanted to fulfill his business trip while having a bit of fun on the side. Sam found himself in the middle of baseball collectors, spectators and a Sports Collectible Mogul Mr. I.T. Mas. It was the first time that he had ever seen the great man although he had heard of him in quite a few times before. So, he gave it a shot, turned to watch, and let himself enjoy the show for some time. He did this while waiting to accomplish his business which placed him on that trip. He also had dinner at one of Chicago’s most posh restaurants – Ditka’s. Everything went smooth sailing until Pineapple Sam’s life turned upside down. Mishaps were all over the place and he was caught up in a web of conflicts. What started out as a casual dinner reservation at the popular restaurant Ditka’s turned out to be a disaster. From simply watching a baseball convention to climbing into a limo, Pineapple Sam found himself fighting for his very own life.
