And Obama will shake your hand for free.
I would charge him $2500 to shake mine and I wouldn't look.

How's your Governor doing? Has he been recalled yet?

Do these count in his charitable totals?

Seriously?? Perhaps on the off chance that you get close enough to him to interact. However, for a planned meet and greet ala Jeter, the charge is a minimum of $10,000 for a photo with him on March 30 (and here's my source http://www.kjonline.com/news/cost-to...012-02-28.html

Or, if you can't catch that one, perhaps you can make this one. It will only set you back a minimum of $35,800 per ticket:

I'd probably be willing to venture that there will be some sort of "official" business on these trips as well in order that John Q. Public can pick up the travel tab for the President.

Gee... I didn't know Jeter was running for office.

(and, of course, your favorite Republicans never, ever, ever hold political fundraisers on the taxpayers' dime.)

Guys, when this was about baseball and autograph signing it fell within the ranges of the board. The last several posts, not so much. As much as I hate to lock threads I will leave it up to you guys. The next post that is not pertaining to baseball will get this thread locked. And I want to bring another topic up that might be a lightening rod in itself. See the next thread, re: autograph sub forum.... happy collecting.
