Default steeler autographs

i see on the steelers official website that you can mail steelers items to be signed by the players and coaches. but you are not guaranteed getting them signed.has anyone have done this and can you send them only during the football season.i collect autographs and would like to get few of them.

Have a buddy who went to high school with a guy who plays on the practice squad. He evidently picked up a bunch of autographed stuff. He gave me a Heath Miller signed football. Pretty awesome, have it on my wall now.

I don't think he's allowed to sign for free anymore since he signed the deal marketing his autograph. Kinda sucks though. Im sure there is a little part of him that would give them away but the NFL is a business.

At training camp this past season, my wife had Ben sign a jersey, as part of the Womens training camp, and Ben signed an NFL football for my daughter,11. At camp Ben will always sign for kids only, so if you don`t have a kid, borrow one.

I'd suggest making it to training camp if you're anywhere in Western PA. because first of all, there's always the risk of losing whatever you send through the mail, and second of all...training camp is a lot of fun

He signed a football for me during the Lemieux Golf Tournament in Nevillewood. No cost. I guess things have changed since then?

Well the crazy thing is most people dont know that almost all professional teams have some sort of autograph policy like this. Sending something in is always worth a try!

When I was a child (age 10 to 14) I used to send them straight to the stadium. NFL, NBA, and MLB... it used to work. You don't know if they really signed it and of course you don't get a Certifcate of Authenticity, but it was good enough for me. Plus, you can have them examined by an expert at card shows or card shops that can validate it for you.

I got the stadium addresses form an almanac... I would send the player of choice a short letter mentioning I'm a fan, and a card or two of theirs with an envelope that had my return address on it. I got like a 90% return on them. If they didn't do free autographs they would usually return the card and send like a membership to their fanclub or something (Bo Jackson stole my rookie card of him). I have around 200 autographs from that period in my life. Some nice ones too...

John Elway, Troy Aikman, Emmit Smith, Barry Sanders, Thurman Thomas, Jim Kelly, Greg Lloyd, Kevin Greene, Rod Woodson, Barry Foster, Dan Marino, Ronnie Lott, Jimmy Johnson, Joe Gibbs, Randall Cuningham, Steve Atwater, Clyde Drexler, David Robinson, Isaiah Thomas, Joe Dumars, Dominique Wilkins, Barry Larkin, Barry Bonds, Greg Maddux, and many more.
