I'm Walt Case. I own Card Traders of Austin in Austin, Texas. I'm going to give you a few tips today on how to get baseball cards autographed or how to get anything from...related to baseball autographed. Obviously, probably the least expensive way but probably one of the more difficult ways is to get the athlete to sign your item at a game. That can be extremely difficult unless you get to the game really, really early and happen to catch the athlete before batting practice. Sometimes after a game as the athlete is leaving the stadium, you might also be lucky enough to obtain an autograph. That one basically is free. Another way that you can get autographs is through card shows. Card shows are done all over the country, and many times, the promoter of that show will bring players in to sign autographs. There will also be a fee associated with that, and sometimes the lines are quite long for a popular player. A third way that you might think about getting an autograph is through the mail. If you mail your item in, and I recommend mailing a not-very-expensive item -- maybe a baseball card, maybe an eight by ten photo -- to the baseball club, they will, in turn, try to get that item to the player who may or may not autograph it and return it to you. That's the reason that I would recommend not sending anything expensive because you may not get that item back. That also is an inexpensive way to obtain an autograph.
