Asking kids to get autographs for you?

Ugh.

Honestly, I'd rather have my kids ask than me. If you think about it. It is kinda odd, and silly for a grown man to ask another grown man for a autograph. But, damn the auto's look so damn good on 8x10s jerseys etc.....A 8x10 looks so bland to me hanging up on a wall w/no autograph.

Yes. Yes, it is.

Make sure you hold the jersey with both hands and lay it flat against the wall. If steps 1 & 2 are not followed Cam gives mean looks and moves on.

No it's not. Even though most of the guys I root for are younger than I am, I find it perfectly acceptable to ask them for a signature. It's a symbiotic relationship. The sig shows me that they are involved with the fans, it shows the human side of the athlete, and if there were no fans looking for sigs there would be no multi million dollar players, no multi billion dollar league and we would all be sad.

Autographs seekers prove the health of our favorite sport.

I appreciate all of the tips, again the autograph isn't for myself but I told my fiancee that I would make an effort to get it on her jersey.

Huh, I always thought it was the money from ticket and merchandise sales that kept it going. Who would've thought it was grown ass men begging a man for his signature.

Seems like so much more trouble than it's worth. I don't understand the appeal....but to each his/her own. I think if I wanted one I would find a situation where it's being done for charity and just pay.

OTAs are the best bet.  Forget Spartanburg.  I used to take my kids to OTAs and they not only got autographs,  we had many conversations with the players. 

 

I think autographs are dumb, but the kids decorated their rooms in Panther signed gloves (Hoover), jerseys (Smith, Williams) posters and banners, helmets, personal photos, etc.   I was taking pictures of my sons interacting with the players, but you have to be careful doing that--they thought I was doing what some of you suggest and getting my kids to sign for my ebay career.  Photos are ways to verify authenticity and the players know that.  (I don't have an ebay account).  The players (some) got a bit antsy--Smith for one.  So, I wait until the signing is done and ask for photos.  To me, a photo is much better than an autograph.

 Look I can explain it to you but I cant make you understand it.  If no one cared enough to do things like ask for an autograph, or take a picture that would show a bit of apathy towards the sport.  Sales are the life's blood of the sport, but as soon as the fanaticism(yucky icky autographers) goes away, you will have a dying sport. Troll somewhere else dipshit.
