Athletes And The Items They WON'T Sign

Post by coachk28 on Mon Nov 04, 2013 8:04 pm

There are certain athletes that are very picky about the items they will or will not sign.

Do you know of, or have experienced any situations like this?

Discuss them here!

For example... Bears WR Dennis McKinnon will NOT sign his rookie card.

He can also be very reluctant to sign Team Signed 85 Bears/Super Bowl XX items if he is not getting paid to do so.

Billy White Shoes Johnson will not sign his UD Legends on the front, because it does not depict him with white shoes on. He will however sign the back of that card.

Simontaachi, Jason: 03 Fleer Banner Season (ded. to his mom)-
he wont sign it because of a lil boy whos house burned down and he signed it for him and told him he is the only person in the world to have that card signed from him. Atleast thats the story he fed me in Peoria this yr.

Robinson, Kerry: Will not sign Devil Rays cards - hes in to caravans and as a scout seen him and hes signed the devil ray bowman for me and has never said a word about it.

Rickey wants to get paid...Rickey likes when Rickey gets money...Rickey wants lots of money for Rickey's signature on bases...Rickey doesn't want people getting a steal...
