You Know You're A Grapher When

Post by Guest on Wed Dec 12, 2012 9:41 am

Thought this would be a fun game to start, post what you can think of for autograph hunters...I'll start it off. You know you're a grapher when, the blue sharpie is the most popular pen in your house! You know you're a grapher when you hear the name "Grandma Gomez", you shiver. You know you're a grapher when you use the word "items" in every other sentence!

You know you're a grapher when you've memorized what abbreviations like... TTM, IP, HOF, ROMLB, GU, & IC all mean!

You know you're a grapher when photolabs know you on a first name basis!

You know you're a grapher when you frown at the person getting a piece of paper signed.

You know you're a grapher when someone passes away and you immediately go to eBay to see what the items (which you have signed by him/her) are going for.

You know you are a grapher when you critique others items at sports shows and compare to yours.
You know you are a grapher when you know information on the athlete that they didn't even know the public knew.
You know you are a grapher when you know other graphers, police at events, and even the workers and they know you.
You know you are a grapher when you spend part of your day on websites like this or ebay.

When the guy who sits in the cubicle next to you says "I know Mike isn't working when I see a SPAAM logo on his computer screen"

You Know You're A Grapher When you tell someone you will buy them lunch for helping you out in getting something signed, and then never do it.

For Chicago area graphers

1). You know you are a grapher when you remember swearing under your breath when Joe DiMaggio was signing at the Oak Lawn Hilton for the absurdly high price of $ 25.00/item. $ 25.00? Who did he think he was?
Mickey Mantle only charged me $ 20.00!

2). You know you are a grapher when you drive into Chicago and pass the Hillside Holiday Inn and you channel your best Chris Farley imitation, 'remember when Bobby Hull, Tony Esposito and Glenn Hall were all signing for less than $ 15.00 each here? That was awesome!'

3). You know you are a grapher when you drive by the Holiday Inn Mundelein and remember getting Deacon Jones and Gordie Howe for $20.00 each. You didn't mind paying extra for the 'out of town guest'.

4) You know you are a grapher when you drive west on Ogden Ave and you still keep an eye out for the Inland/Westmont Expo Center. Tough lot to park in.

5). You know you are a grapher when you can recall cutting through the Hyatt Regency Hotel kitchen to get sigs at the first Sox Fest.

6). Lastly you know you are a grapher when you have over 10,000 autographs and do not HAVE or WANT any PSA/DNA; JSA, PBJ or BLT proof that you personally obtained the autograph. Posed pictures? Not a poser.

You know you're a grapher when...


you go to the Chicago Auto Show for the athletes and celebrities... and NOT the cars!

you have more framed pictures of athletes and celebrities in your house than you do of your own family!

When you feel obligated to walk the line at a signing to say hello to all the various people you know so that no one thinks you ignored them.
