Default In Person Autograph Help

I'm going to a meet & greet with a bunch of players in a few weeks and Jackie Bradley JR and possibly Xander Boegarts . is going to be there. I was wondering if I should get a bat for him to sign or a ball. The reason I ask is because andersonkpf.com has balls for 13.50 and bats for 23. I've never seen big stick bats that cheap so I would love to do that. I'd love to hear anybody's input wether they prefer balls or bats, thanks!

Both are very good options. I prefer baseballs, but I have bats as well. If you are going to resell, then the bat seems to fetch a little more money, but the market isn't as strong for them. You are good whichever way you go.

Also ask Jackie to sign his full name. If you dont you will just get the "JBJ". He is a very nice guy and fan friendly.

I'm not going to end up selling. These will be for my collection. I may go towards the bat only because they're harder to find it seems. Also do you know what shipping runs on that andersonkpt.com website?

Well I wouldn't say they're way more collectible. Bats have a much better resale value. But I'm just thinking whats the best for my personal benifit

andersonkpt.com

Last season I bought a dozen baseballs and 2 bats and I think the shipping was around $12. I think their shipping is pretty standard around $12, though I have only bought bats and baseballs by the dozen.

That's not of bad. I wasn't sure if they charged an astronomical rate. So my best bet is to buy more than one of each thing because shipping will probably run the same 12 for a smaller amount?

If u are doing bat make sure to buy a high quality one.. Baseball is more safer i guess .. Bats might fetch more $ but more people collect omlb autos..

Personally, I prefer baseballs...they're easier to display, IMO. And, to me, they look better. I've never been huge into bats either (or gotten them signed myself) but nothing beats a ROMLB signed on the sweet spot in blue ink in my opinion.

Jeebus, what did I just read?

I don't see anything about Cole signings anywhere...he was solid in person this year, but he's going to get tough. Personalized everything last year.

Yeah still not to sure as to what I'm gonna get. I think I'm leaning toward balls because its just easier to lug them around when getting autos from everyone there
