yah he has a bunch...however, Mario hates him. They played golf one day and the pro told my cousin to take a higher handicap and my cousin ended up taking $500 from Mario. A couple years later (I forget who he was cadding for that year) but the guy took him to meet Mario and Mario said "I remember you, you were the guy that took $500 because you cheated" OOps!!!

I can't say I can't see where Ben is coming from. I collected autos a lot when I was younger. Mark McGwire was the same way when he was in the record breaking season. He would sign for kids only. A lot of people try to turn around and sell their stuff to make a profit. Kids just don't have those motives. They try to get the autographs because they love the team or the player.

Exactly. I have younger brothers and when they get an autograph from a athlete they love, it means so much more to them, then it would to an adult. Props to Ben

I don't look for autographs. I did as a kid, twice. Once from Ted Williams, and another time from a cowboy movie star. Can't even remember his name now.

The thing is, Ben shouldn't forget who pays to see him.

Ok.. I can see their point about people just hounding them left and right for autographs. And wanting to do right by taking care of the kids..but man, ur in the limelight here, ur a celebrity..it comes w/ the territory. I know its hard not to stereotype fans from all the bad experiences u have..but still, u gotta find a happy medium.. IMO

I agree Blitz. There are some people even if they are older just looking to get their favorite celebrity's auto because they are a huge fan.
