I have gotten returns from Boggs twice without a donation. Still $5.00 is a small price to pay.

I got really excited earlier this year when I saw Randy Johnson was having a paid signing until i found out he wanted over $100 per. NO WAY would i do that! the only paid signing i ever went to was for Youkilis in 2007, that was $20 and not so bad

I get weary and pretty much stay from anyone who wants more than $10-20 for an autograph. At that point, you can almost buy a certified auto.

Never been to a signing, but as far as TTM's go, I didn't mind tossing Kaline $5 and Abe Vigoda $10 as they are legends in their own right. But then there's HOFers and other stars charging $40-$200 and I think to myself I'd rather have the penguin :special:

Yeah at one of the card shows I went to before this one Randy Johnson was one of the guests but was charging about $160 per autograph (and that's just for flat surfaces) which would've set me back way too much so I passed.
Of course if you're a die-hard life time fan, that changes everything. But if you just are trying to add to the collection, and getting guys like Randy Johnson would be awesome, but $100+- is a tough pill to swallow for an autograph unless money is no option.

I was at the show as well but I only met Montgomery. Is it just me or did you think he was small too? Nice Nova BTW! I like the Sega Card Gen card, it's a unique thing to get signed!

I'd like to think that this is a real auto of Ms. Gomez but the more I look at it, the more it looks like an autopen. Allegedly my cousin sent a request to Gomez's fanmail address or something and got a return and some extras. Do I tell her that it's most likely not a real auto or say nothing and be all "ignorance is bliss" ?
Most of the fanmail from her isn't a real autograph, either preprinted or autopened. Depends on how old she is. If she is 16 and up, I'd tell her. If she is like 8, I'd be quiet and play along.

Since it was a gift, I'd thank her first and then break the news. At the last, I'd add in, even though it might not be real, I still love it and thanks for the gift.

Haha, I wrote to her a while ago and never got anything back though. I did get Taylor Swift way back in like 2010 though!

I was given an autograph as a gift too, I might elaborate upon it more some point this week in my thread. Happy holidays guys!
