Default Chicago Sun Times March show prices released

Just checked out the pricing on the big show coming up in Chicago and all I can say is wow. A significant jump in prices almost universally across the board. RG III is now 150 and up, up and away. Jim Brown has been at 100 and a free inscription for years. Now he has leveled pricing starting at 130 and 30 for an inscription. Lance Briggs at 80!! That might be a short line. Steve Fuller at 35!!! An even shorter line, buy his auto online on a card at what 0.99? Drew "pick six" Brees at 150 and up, 90 for an inscription. Really Drew, you think your better then Jim Brown? Check out the rest on the Mounted Memories website, these are just a sampling of what I'm seeing. Makes me wonder what the athletes are charging the card companies for their sigs. This may very well be part of the reason why we are seeing a watering down of product being released this year. P>S> make sure you purchase a photo op with Manti Te'o AND his imaginary girlfriend. Only 80 bucks!!!

The only reason to get an auto in person is to shake the athlete's hand and that'll cost you 40% more than just buying the item.

Plus, I've seen (and been victim of) the faulty pen. You're better off knowing exactly what you are getting than to risk a bad quality autograph.
