Jim Thome has an exclusive autograph deal with a company that is famous for not allowing backroom discounts. He is pricey as shows, so unless I am able to get in on some backroom signings–which usually shave a couple dollars off the overall price–I was willing to sit back and wait for him to show up in a certified autograph someplace.
Well, that has not happened.
So I sent a couple items to Spring Training. They are not super cheap either, but these two autographs still cost me less than what one signature would have cost me at a show…so I am pretty happy.
I think I am done with Thome autographs. Unless I can get him in person, or there is a stupid cheap signing…I think I have enough.
