ZZ Top Meet & Greet DISASTER - are they all this bad?

Myself and a couple buddies of mine went to the ZZ Top concert this past May in Englewood, NJ. In addition to our concert tickets, we each paid the additional $150 for the VIP Meet & Greet package. The VIP package was advertised as "Q&A Session with ZZ Top, Photograph with ZZ Top, ZZ Top poster, Commemorative VIP Laminate and Lanyard".



When we got to the VIP area prior to the Meet & Greet, tour manager Pablo Gamboa made his presence felt by announcing "NO AUTOGRAPHS, NO… Continue

2014 NEW YORK YANKEES LUNCHEON TAMPA MARRIOTT WATERSIDE FRIDAY MARCH 21

Came across this event when doing some research for my upcoming Spring Training trip. The event is being put on by the Boys & Girls Club of Tampa Bay and is being held on Friday March 21st at the Marriott Waterside in Tampa. Obviously the money goes to a great cause but these prices seem very expensive considering the autograph session appears to last for less then an hour. Has anyone here ever attended this event, and if so, can you get a lot of autographs? I have several jerseys that I'd… Continue

2014 MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL SPRING TRAINING (GRAPEFRUIT LEAGUE/FLORIDA) AUTOGRAPH ADVICE

UPCOMING BOOK SIGNING EVENTS AT BOOKENDS IN RIDGEWOOD, NEW JERSEY

I'm looking to attend a couple upcoming book signings at Bookends in Ridgewood, NJ. I know you can't get anything signed other then the book at the actual book signing itself but I was wondering if any of the featured signers will sign outside of the store prior to or after the book signing? I've got a Peyton Manning signed Super Bowl XLI game ball that I'd love to get Tony Dungy to sign on Feb. 4th. Does anyone have any first hand info on whether or not getting stuff signed outside of…

AUCTION HOUSES

Anyone have a good auction house that they deal with? Looking to get rid of some stuff in my collection so I can upgrade in other areas. With my job, I don't have the time to take pictures, list everything on eBay and then deal with going to the Post Office a few times a week so I'd rather just let an auction house deal with it. From the few AH's I've looked into, most don't pay out for 4-6 weeks and charge between 15%-20% on consignment fee. Is that common procedure with every auction house?
