    I would probably strongly consider something like that for that price range. Of course, you went to his place vs flying them in and setting them up in a hotel (dining, etc). Probably would save a great deal if there was no travel or overnight stay involved for the player.

    Some would even say that being invited into their house for them meeting/signing is a "free" bonus (maybe not so free if you are traveling far and have to tote along a bunch of stuff for signatures), although unless there was some personal memorabilia that you'd get to see while there, it's just like going to your neighbors house, only bigger and more expensive (for most of us).

    Oh man, 1991 Stadium Club. The first time my dad told me no to a pack of cards because they were more than 50 cents

    Hey, Tanner...are you still selling autographed copies of your book directly? Is the direct payment through PayPal?


    I remember opening a few 1991 Stadium Club packs when they first came out and thinking they smelled like carrots. lol

    Carrots?! LOL! I've never heard that before. I think they would have a slam dunk if they could make cards smell like chocolate

    As for direct, yes I sure am! They are autographed - I sold out of my last batch in 12 hours, and am waiting for the next batch to come in which should be a week or week and a half, so you can reserve one now if you would like!

    That would be awesome! Unfortunately, I don't think that is possible, even if every single collector bought a copy.
