    Selfie or Signature?

    If you had a chance of meeting a player at a game, would you rather get a signature or a selfie with the player?

    In a perfect world, i would shoot for both, but for purposes of the topic, a signature would be preferred in the event I would decide to flip it. No one would like to buy personalized items. Who agrees?

    I go for pics with my daughter. I've gotten some of them signed which is really cool

    Bring me your Bickford, Ryan McMahon, Senzatela and Peter Lambert cards
    Please note: Card collecting is my hobby, not my life. I don't take it that serious and like to keep it fun.

    I don't want to sound to "get off my lawnish" but I'd rather have the auto. I detest selfies. I realize it's more than a fad and it's easier than imposing on a stranger to work your camera or phone. If I had kids maybe I'd feel different and I'd want a photo but you can bet someone who is not in the photo will be taking it. End rant...here's your soap box back.

    It depends. Do I have an acceptable item for the player to sign?

    I'm picky so if I don't have a card that will look good with a sig or a rOMLB I'll take the picture.

    And to be honest, pics are cool and kind of a "forever" thing, but nothing says "experience" than having a player sign a card, ball or some other form of item.

    Signature for sure. If I know in advance, I'd try to do a nice sketch to get signed.

    I voted for selfie but would prefer to have the player in a picture with me.

    Selfie all day long.

    Autographs are really dumb at this point if you sit and think about it.

    I'd rather have photographic evidence.

    Hell, you can get the picture autographed at a later date if you want to.

    Picture with the player. Anyone can buy an autograph on eBay. But having your picture taken with a great player can be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

    Signature. I'm not a millennial...but that has little to do with it. I just hate my stupid face. I wanna punch a hole through it.

    For those rare pictures of myself that actually exist, I generally cut out the faces of celebrities from teen bop magazines and glue them over my own. Which is pretty cool for an ex of mine because apparently she dated Brad Pitt.
