Autographs at Training Camp
 
I will be there on Sunday for my first Training Camp ever! :wild:
I am curious how the Autographs work. I read that the first 100 get a wristband to get an autograph and you can only have one item signed.
Is that one item per player? Will ALL players be available? Is it well organized?
Any help/experience would be appreciated.

See y'all there! :fans:

In the past years and I am sure it will be the same this year. They (Texans) pick out one (1) group to sign autographs. A group will be, o-line or d-line or wr's or db's or qb's with kickers.

Then you will walk to one end of the table and get all the players that are there on one (1) item. It moves extremely quick because the players have meeting they have to get to and the coaches don't care if the players are signing autographs or not.

Hope that helps!

As training camp has gone on, people have begun showing up earlier and earlier for autographs. Any more, I think you have to wait outside the gate 1.5 or 2 hours before they open to at least get a special wrist band if not one period.

In the past they have given the first 'x' many people a bracelet that guarantees them first dibs on which line they get into. Everyone else gets another color.

Once they open, they have 4 or so guys at each table. You choose one table only. The 'good' table fills up first, usually the people with the special bracelet.

Hope that helps and someone will correct me if it has changed.

Yankee, that was the old way they used to do it. I know I went to 2 practices last year and the way that they did was by the first 100 to get a ticket. When it came time for the autographs, you lined up and they set the players out at one table and you got one auto per player and only can use only one item for all of them to sign.
