    On a personal note, no way in heck will I be going to this... $35 to $55 for an autograph...

    Do like so many others and go to Open Training Camps in July and get the autograph for FREE... that is, if you can get one from him...

    I don't believe in this charging crud for an autograph, but I felt this needed to be posted just incase someone out there really needed his autograph that badly...

    If you can write off autographs then my office would look like an Amobi Okoye shrine.
