Default How far would you drive for an autograph?

Jets Rookie Bilal Powell is having an autograph session in Louisville in June...REALLY want to make the trip down but it is 2.5 hours away! Prob going to load up on AMP and make the trip with my son! WE ARE HUGE JETS FANS! and we are very excited to meet a Jets Rookie!

What is the furthest you have traveled for an Autograph???

I don't have experience with that, but I would definitely make the drive if it were one of the Rams rookies, or Sam Bradford. It's one of those things where if you don't, you will always think you should have...at least it would be that way for me.

Yeah that is what I was thinking, it would be a fun trip for me and the boy! And the Auto tickets are only $5.00! So we were thinking of getting a couple things signed to make the trip worth while!

A couple years ago two friends and I drove six hours to Council Bluffs (IA) to see a PBA (Bowling) Tournament. Got to meet a ton of guys and get
autographs at the Pro-AMs but felt going to the TV finals wasn't as fun because we kinda had to watch it as a "TV audience"; not like going to a baseball game or something.

Yeah that sounds fun! I think we are going to make the trip!

It will be cool to see a Jets Rookie!

I flew across the country from L.A. to Long Island to attend the 1969 Mets Reunion show...

A couple years back, I drove to Jupiter for St Louis spring training. I live an hour west of st louis. I got tons of auto's and stayed there for 4 days.

Last summer I drove 4 hours to go to Jets training camp to get Antonio Cromartie's signature. It was a great experience and I was able to get Cromartie's signature as well as 12-15 others on one of those Limited Edition Jet auto footballs. Hope you enjoy your trip.

It's not gonna be a sports reference, but I drove 6 hours once for a couple slices of pizza. 6 hours north, ate, and then turned around and drove 6 hours south and home. And I don't regret a minute of it.

Guess that makes Harold & Kumar's trip to White Castle nothing compared to yours...
