Meet Curtis Granderson This Weekend!

I'm not sure how this flew under my radar, but the Detroit Tigers will be part of a post-game autograph signing on Sunday, May 3. This comes straight from the Tigers' official blog by the way. As for the details: for the low, low price of $60 (!), Curtis will sign any non game-used item, with a portion of the proceeds going to the Detroit Tigers Foundation. Perhaps Curtis' cut will be going to his own foundation? That wouldn't surprise me. The signing will be limited to 250 autographs and autograph tickets will only be sold on the day of the game, at the stadium.

$60 is a pretty steep price, in my opinion. Back in my day, Curtis would show up after games at the Gibraltar Trade Center, and for $25 he'd sign until his hands were numb, and we had to walk 20 miles, uphill both ways, just to see him. However, for those of you heading to the games this weekend, keep this in mind, especially if you have a nice item you've been waiting to get signed--the money is going to a good cause, after all.

  1. Strangely enough, for Curtis, we might consider this. If only.
