Default Mets Fans- Meet Some Prospects-Flores/Lagares

Preface: I have zero affiliation with this company but I get emails from them bc I have done a few card shows in Bordentown.

Anyway, I'm just being a good guy here bc there are a lot of cool Mets fans on this site, Wilmer Flores and Juan Lagares will be signing autographs in Bound Brook, NJ on the 16th. RK Sports Promotions for info.

That's what I thought - has anyone ever been to one of these things where there's no line and just two awkward signers waiting?

If it was half that, I might've considered it.

I don't think many people would pay $49 for the pair, much less a piece...that's ridiculous.

This is what I don't understand about the memoribilia business and signings. I got Jim Plamer, an outstanding career pitcher and HOFer, for less money than these unproven prospects.

Only $49 each?

That's ridiculous. I hope nobody goes, I hate companies that try to take advantage like that.

I actually didn't even click on the link just saw the email which didn't have a price, I wouldn't pay $50 for the two together.

I used to ride NJ Transit from Bound Brook when I lived in Warren Township for a coupla years.
There really is so little to do around there that someone might actually cough it up. lol

Maybe if it were $49 per bat, full size helmet, or jersey (even then it's still pricey considering they haven't proved that much yet, and neither are high end prospects/rookies).

But if I wanted to get them on a ball, photo, or card, no way I'm paying close to that.
