I have to disagree with you, majority of all sports athletes get up front $$$ to sign at a convention or sports shop. Last year, Montana was signing at a huge sports show and they were charging 150 and more for his auto. That is because he was charging a HUGE fee to sign.. 40 bucks is good for a Willie Parker auto. Hell, i would pay that for a Heath Miller.
