Stop and have a chat with the fans. Have your picture taken and all that.

But no autographs. I'd hate to charge people for the autograph, but on the other hand, there's also a market for it, and I don't like the idea of some random db making cash off of it.


Russell used to have that policy but he will sign for a fee. He still wont sign if you saw him in public and asked him, but he has made the rounds at sports memorabilia shows in the past.

ETA: autographs are gay and I cant imagine ever asking for one.


can i have your autograph?

*I paid SDH $25,000 for the rights to that. Don't say Rickey never did nothin' for ya.
I'd like to see a pair of boobs that would prompt me to write home. Maybe Scarlett Johannson level quality? "Dear Mom and Dad, I saw an awesome rack today. They were perfect. Everything else is fine. Love, BD79."

I have Shawn Bradley's autograph too. A friend of mine ran into him at an Atlantic City casino fifteen years ago and asked him to make the autograph out to "Moose". He spelled it "Muse".

From this year's Baseball Prospectus:
Jim Rice thinks Ellsbury has the potential to be a hall of famer, which is true under the assumption that the Hall of Fame continues to erode its standards by inducting players like Jim Rice.
