As my list of failed requests continues to grow, a fascinating thing to look at is the various monetary requests given by some of the players. I've received autographs from seven former players through the mail for free, but some are not quite so generous.
Here is the list as it stands so far...
Rollie Fingers, $10
Brooks Robinson, $37.99 and up (at his website)
Goose Gossage, $20
Whitey Ford, $20
Phil Niekro, $10 and up
Pretty modest requests (and they would certainly be much higher at a sports collectible store), but at this point I just can't justify spending that much on a signature. Maybe that will change some day. If anyone would like to donate to help my cause, I'd certainly be grateful!
