Strasburg PSA/DNA authenticated balls go for $150+ on eBay. I don't see how that's ridiculous.

Not sure which is the bigger injustice, Tim McCarver being a Hall of Famer (broadcasting, but still... really?) or the fact he's more expensive to get an autograph from than true Hall of Famer Orlando Cepeda.

I know it's not baseball, but M.A.B. REALLY missed the boat on this one by not having a 'super-ticket' for the gymnasts...maybe all 6 on a photo for like $99 or something. I know I would've immediately sent in a mail-order for an 8x10 at that price (most people would still probably think a hundred is still insane to get 6 gymnasts, but it at least would've been within the ballpark). Miller, Moceanu and Strug will still get some people at $39 apiece ($49 by mail), but I honestly do NOT envision ANYONE ponying up that much for Chow, Borden or Phelps by themselves (and where the hell is Dawes?!?!?!). Moceanu was totally my athlete crush in the summer of '96 when I was in 8th grade. Still don't think I'd pay $49 just to get her. I think she has signed photos on her site for like $10.

Hell, I'd rather get Chipper on a ball and save $20.

I dont think that Strasburg prices are all that high. Public signings are always a little high to begin with. The thing about this that scares me is that he is so young and already starting to do public appearances you know what that means for his auto prices. down down down.

Now that the show date is a bit closer, has anyone else decided to make the trip ? I'll be there. I'm still debating on whether or not to get the VIP package which allows early entry and you get a random autograph ticket from the list. I have had decent luck the last two times I did get it (Joe Theismann and Joe Montana).

I'm headed to the show also. I am getting Strasburg and Rizzo for now. Probably more when the time comes though.

Donovan McNabb has some real balls charging $99 for his auto. Either that or all the Chunky soup money is gone.

Does anybody know if Friday is a good time to go down? They're only open 4-9, so I'm wondering if a lot of vendors just set up for saturday and sunday.

the athlete doesn't pick the price the company providing the athlete provides a cost to have the athlete attend the show, the show then decides the price that they want to charge
