Yeah I couldn't believe you could get either Frank Howard or Minnie Minoso for free yet have to pay some of the lesser players on the list

The FREE autographs are a classy touch! More players should do it, maybe limit one per person and insist on personalization to remove the re-sellers who are trying to profiteer from the fans who would benefit from such a generous experience. More active players should be doing that for the kids and fans of today.

Thats why I have always like Brooks Robinson, and Boog Powell. Brooks used to do alot of free appearances. I went to one at a sears store and was the only person there. Got to chat with him for about an hour. Boog is at just about every orioles game at his bbq stand. He will be happy to sign for you, take pictures etc.

Frank Howard, Charlie Hough and Minnie Minoso are fantastic free autograph guests.

On the other hand who would pay $20 for Gary Thomasson and Jay Johnstone?

I always go to the shows and get the free guys. It's awesome. Never get those paid guys. The ironic part was a few months ago at the same show I got Paul Blair free and this time he was $20
