JAM...There's nothing wrong with that idea...as stated here. The problem lies with the "advice" NOT to sign things outside of this enterprise. Most of us here believe that both ideas should be able to coexist...creating, and selling "signed" merchandise, and poolplayers signing autographs at will (at public venues), for mostly whoever asks them (I think most of them are smart enough to know if they were being hustled...for autographs ). This option makes it a win-win for both the fans and the players.
JAM said:Those are what I am referring to. Pat Fleming of Accu-Stats is one of the players on those cards, and so is J.R. Calvert of InsidePOOL.
If they were sold with autographs on them, they could be collector items someday. What Freddy was intending to do was something similar, providing a product with the autograph on it. The project was to be initiated at his expense, I might add, up front.
