Bobby Cox will be signing and I'd like to get his signature on a ball for my Braves Retired Numbers collection, even though his is not technically retired yet.
Brian McCann is my favorite player after Chipper, and he will be signing.
It looks like Cox and McCann are in the same signing line. McCann would be a great consolation prize if I didn't get Bobby's Signature, and Heyward isn't a bad signature either.
I have a camera with extra film in it left over from Christmas that I need to finish up, and this might be a good chance to get a snap of Derek Lowe in a Braves cap.
It's worth $20 and a few hours of my time to hang out at Turner Field for a while.
This is NOT a kid friendly event. You can wander around the Golden Moon Casino Level a bit, but it doesn't appear to have anything else going on other than the autograph lines. Young kids will get bored easily.
The one line I really want to be in will be insanely long.
There's no guarantee you'll get anything. $100 "Elite" tickets have been sold to
I've already got autographs of a whole lot of these guys. Of course, extra autos are always tradeable.
I really feel uncomfortable asking people for autographs in person. I know it's perfectly fine to do so as long as you are polite, especially when you've PAID for the chance but I personally just feel weird about it.
I'm going to be going back and forth about this probably up until 9:00am tomorrow which is the absolute last moment I can wait before leaving the house to make sure I get there early enough to have a chance at Bobby. I think the kid-friendly aspect might be the deal breaker. If I go, you will all know about it. The good news is there is a free open house on March 28th which I will absolutely be going to. There's also a "Community Caravan" touring around the Southeast, but those are all to far for me to drive. So, should I stay or should I go?
