Isn't the market flooded with fake signed articles of memorabilia, anyway? Who's to know whether Brett Favre really signed a jersey, or if some imposter just signed his name? Charging x amount for it won't stop the resale of unauthenticated items anyway (assuming that none of these signing days give a certificate of authenticity, then it's very difficult to tell between a good fake and these real signed pieces), means that the argument that charging a greater amount of money will stop people from reselling at a later date is ill-conceived, as it only provides a greater incentive to defraud a customer through fake signatures, since ostensibly a signed Favre piece of memorabilia will be priced up according to the 'cost' of acquiring such articles.

It all stinks in my opinion, from the profiteering by those who received and resell signed merchandise to Favre's motives.

My Favre stuff is where it was when he retired a Packer. In a box in my closet. I don't foresee that changing unless he publicly insults the Packers fans. Then I'd consider burning it or something.

Color me disinterested... I could give a crap less if some people are willing to fork over 400 dollars for the honor of his John Henry.. more power to those that can milk that cash for something that will be meaningless by such an impersonal way to get something signed.


Of course if you did, that would make you a real toolio. (Since a "John Henry" is a a hammer, unlike a John Hancock, which is a signature.)

On a less pedantic note, I agree completely. I remember when I got Bart Starr's autograph, it was the coolest thing. But it was cool not because I got the signature on something, or because I could sell it later for dough, but because I was a little kid, because it was after a football game, and because I got within a foot or so of my idol and he said hi.

If people want to spend their money on such stuff, well, hey, it's their money. And since I've spent enough money on silly stuff in my life, who am I to talk? After all, what's dumber, the $400 autographed helmet in Packer bedroom shrine, or the $400 replica Sword of Charlemagne that hangs in my living room?

Here's my take.
I think atheletes charging for autographs is BULL. Plain and simple. So WHAT if someone makes a buck on it. They are making MILLIONS. Their refusing to sign hurts the REAL fans that can't afford to drop $400 for an autograph.

If a guy signs everything that he is asked to sign, and people KNOW that, what would it do to the prices of said items? They would drop ALOT. Thus, allowing those that can't GET to where a player lives or plays to be able to get a signature from their favorite player, without having to mortgage what they own. To me, any player that says he won't sign because someone might make a buck on it is just saying that because THEY want ALL the money for themselves. All just a convienient excuse.
Bart Starr will sign anything, for a small charge. (Which he gives to charity) But he insists on personalizing EVERYTHING. Even at Fan Fest, EVERYTHING he signed was personalized. That ends anyone making money off it.
Nice thing too, you can READ his signature.
After super bowl 31 i had a SB mini helmet signed by Desmond Howard. I paid $35 to have him sign it. You know what his "autograph" looks like?
"OX" Not kidding. If i didn't take a picture of him as he was signing it, you would have NO clue what the 2 letter scribble was. $35, and you SHOULD be able to READ it. Thats' BS in my view.
