Show Jacoby the Money!
Fans to Pay $125.00 to Have Ellsbury Sign Their Ball

Happy Holidays: Jacoby Ellsbury is signing autographs tomorrow at Emerald Square Mall in North Attleborough at Sports Treasures, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. It will cost fans $125.00 to get a baseball or photograph (up to 16x20) signed by the Sox rookie outfielder (you provide the item). For $150.00, Ellsbury will autograph a baseball bat or jersey/shirt.

Schill Chimes in on Appearances and Autographs

"Players and their agents negotiate appearance fees. The agent generally takes a %. I no longer do public signings where cash is required at the autograph table, it’s way too messy and uncomfortable.

"I have a lady named Katie Leighton who handles my off the field PR/Marketing that oversees this stuff. The only signings we’ve done since 2004 involved ALS or Shade. I signed a private exclusive deal after the 2004 season with Steiner Sports that allowed me to not have to do these public events if we chose not to. I don’t ‘charge’ for autographs in that sense since I don’t do these shows anymore. Many of the outlets to sign autographs have removed the player/fan thing that autographs began as. It’s horribly uncomfortable." -- 12.7.07, Curt Schilling on 38Pitches.com

Survey: Is $125 too much to pay for Ellsbury's autograph?
