Default Re: How can I get Andre Johnson to sign my jersey?

The autograph world is a big hobby and the memorabilia industry especially with sports is huge in itself. At the same time, many people are disinterested by it or don't care too much. The whole "let me sign it" thing is kind of ridiculous though. Authenticity is a must, especially if you're collecting and/or framing items. If buying a $3 "Andre Johnson" signed photo off eBay satisfies you then...I don't know what to say.

I got my Andre autographed framed jersey from a charity auction, I am not big on autographs but for certain athletes it is different.
Also having it on a jersey makes it much cooler to me.

I've always wondered about the guys I see at EVERY signing. When you spend 2+ hours to get Texans' autographs, is there really a good return on investment for your time?

I mean for every 20 hours I see them, they get Mario followed by 5 people that you couldn't get the price for the sharpie you bought?

The ONLY autographs I have ever bought were from NFL.com, breast cancer awareness items - a pink hat signed by coach Joe and a pink towel singed by Andre. Both for the wife.

If you got the time and no money then yeah it's worth it... a dollar earned is a dollar more than I had.

Haha. Well your forgery of AJ's signature on my AJ jersey would hardly make it worth framing.

Besides, I am doing it more for sentimental value than actual value.

Ill just have to hold off until I can attempt to get him to sign it in person.

Default Re: How can I get Andre Johnson to sign my jersey?

He also doesn't sign at non-events. I've heard from several people who have seen him at high school and college games, or just out on the town (he goes to Rockets games a lot), and he politely refuses to sign autographs. It could be a contractual issue, or he just may not want to be bothered, but it's another one of those things that makes it that much tougher. My son's #1 Christmas gift on his list is Andre's autograph (we got screwed at the meet and greet), and I can't find it except on eBay for ridiculous amounts.
