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 really like to have signed and it seems like this would be a great way to get them done if you're able to go through each players line to get an autograph. Wondering if a General Admission ticket would be suitable to make it through all the lines. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated as this is a very pricey event. Below is a list of the ticket prices as advertised on the Boys & Girls Club of Tampa Bay's website:

$10,000 Hall of Fame Sponsorship ($9,500 tax-deductible)

I wonder if they let you select the player or if the player is selected for you. I've been to events like this before and not all players were even there. Never been to a Yankees event though.

the lines are ridiculous. you can only get one good guy with the 300$ tix. dont expect to get jeter and ichiro, it wont happen. maybe one jeter, and thats pushing it. 

people start lining up outside (becuase its general admission) around 4-5am.

$10,000 you better get a locket containing The Babe's butt hair.
