It's really gross to make all of your money on the backs of fans and then to continue to rip those fans off when you have no reason to.
Supposedly a portion of his signing fees go to his foundation. But if the goal was to raise as much money as possible for the foundation, why not sign for $250 a pop and you'd sell at least 5 times as much as at $700 a sig? A much higher revenue overall.

The current prices are at a level that indicates to me he doesn't want to sign at all.

Why not donate all of the signing fee then?

Everybody can say what they want about Tim Tebow but I researched it and he charges like 250 each item he signs but 100% percent of fee he donates to his or someone elses good charity causes. I wish more were like that!

That's great, except is anyone paying $250 for a Tim Tebow autograph?

That trout signing was also a favor for a friend. The people who trout is signed with will probably never let him do something like that again..


Alsi I believe Jeter doesn't do inscriptions anymore, so maybe thats why its such a high price tag.

This is a screen capture, taken 7/16/14, of Steiner Sports' online offering of a 2014 All-Star Game programs signed by Derek Jeter for $999.99. The cover price for a regular, unsigned program was $15.

Check back in a thousand years and you might be able to flip it for a slim profit. Adjusted for inflation, it'll never happen.

if anyone is nuts enough to pay that kind of money for No.2, or #2 or whatever, what happens if in ten years, he loosens up and starts just signing it? also his Steiner signatures suck, in my opinion. He signs them like someone has a gun at his head.
