What should I bring to be prepared for a game?

Post by hoganator on Wed Aug 15, 2012 6:08 pm

I will probably be attending a Tampa Bay Rays vs Oakland A's game this weekend. What should I bring to be prepared? Sorry I am relatively new to this.

I have another question. Would it be wrong to ask the player for more than one autograph when others are waiting to get one? It doesnt feel quite right to do that

The only thing you forgot in the list Coach was....

Plastic sleeves for the photos, and card holders. You don't want to leave a signed photo or card unprotected. Very Happy

That one is touchy. Unwritten rule is you get yours and step to the side so others can get theirs. If possible get back in and get a 2nd. Of course not everyone follows that. You can do whatever you want but you may end up upsetting the same people you will see whenver you go graphing.

I would put multiples in front of them and if they sign it, they sign it. If they don't then they'll just move on to the next person.

For sure, it's worth the try. What's the worst thing that can happen? Smile

If it was me doing this, I would print off no less than a 1024X768 (8x10).
Also, it would not hurt to bring a clipboard for a nice supportive backing to sign on. Very Happy

I try not to go lower than 1000x1000 just to be safe. Sort on google by 2MB and anything you find on there will be good.
