Default Re: Lynn Swann update....

a lynn swann autograph can be worth twice as much on e-bay with the #88 signed beside it and these atheletes know it. is the person asking him for a signature or for him to do his taxes? beggers shouldnt be chosers.

my aunt recently encountered pete rose in a cheescake factory in a vegas casino. she asked for an autograph on a napkin but he directed her to a high end shop where he was doing signings if you purchased a gift. she was pissed and refused (cheapest item was $80).

as he explained this was how he made his living nowadays. she did procede to tell him he wouldnt need to worry about that if he werent a crook.

point is most autographs are wanted for monetary value. otherwise a handshake or photograph will do you fine.
