2009 National Autograph Prices Now Available

TRISTAR has released the pricing list for the athletes that are scheduled to sign at this year’s National.  In a post I made a few days ago, I said that Lynn Swann is going to make a rare signing appearence which doesn’t happen that often.  Thats why it doesn’t surprise me that he is the most expensive personal to meet and obtain an autograph.  If I stayed another day and wanted him to sign my football, it would cost me $229.00.  If I wanted to get my picture with him over in the TRISTAR booth it would cost an additional $199.00.  I highly doubt that he would let me come around the table to take a quick photo based in the info given.  A lot of the other guys let me do that when I was there two years ago.  Looking at the details for Swann, you almost need a damn Ph. D to understand what he will and will not sign.  

Flats Up to and Including 11×14, Goal Line Art Cards:

Will not sign trading cards or unlicensed photos.  Lynn reserves the right to reject any item.

Full Size Helmet, Jersey:

Will not sign unsigned or single signed jerseys or jersey numbers and will only sign jerseys with 2 or more signatures already on the jersey.

Inscriptions:

One accomplishment per inscription up to 5 words

Last year, Lynn Swann ran for governor of Pennsylvania and lost.  Perhaps he needs to pay back everyone that tried to get him elected.  Maybe he’d give me a discount if I told him I voted for him 🙂  

On a positive note, Y.A. Tittle only costs $45.00 and will sign anything.  The VIP package looks to have a lot of good guys to get autographs of too.  I’m interested to see what other promotional stuff will be included with the package as well.

2008 Playoff Contenders SP List Part 2

Today Donruss/Playoff released the second part of the 2008 Playoff Contenders SP list.  

  • Jed Collins #147 – 30 copies
  • Dantrell Savage #121 – 76 copies
  • Erik Ainge #136 – 108 copies
  • Peyton Hillis #184 – 113 copies
  • Malcolm Kelly #171 – 141 copies
  • Erin Henderson #137 – 158 copies
  • Jake Long #144 – 163 copies

  • Joe Flacco #151 – 220 copies
  • Jermichael Finley #148 – 231 copies
  • Andre Woodson #105 – 250 copies

The thing I never got about Contenders is why the prices of many of the unpopular autographed rookie cards shoot-up if they appear on the SP list?  All their other autographed cards, probably serial numbered to even less copies most likely sell for a smaller amount.  I personally would never bust a box of Playoff Contenders.  For me, its a really hit or miss product.  You could pull a big time rookie, but your most likely going to get four autographs of rookies you never heard about.
