  • Autographs Thru Email

    I'm wondering if anyone here has done this before? I used to do this last year, mostly with college coaches (football and basketball), some celebs and I collected quite a few autographs.

    Roy Williams
    Bill Callahan
    Mike Shula
    Turner Gill
    Bobby Petrino
    Dave Wanstedt
    Charlie Daniels (the musician)
    Mack Brown (got some cool uncut trading cards as well from Texas)
    John Calipari

    Those are just the ones off the top of my head I can remember getting when I used to do this.

    If you are wondering how this is done -- you either find the email of the coach from their bio page (it is usually their secretaries email), send them an email, do a little bit of butt kissing, then request their autograph while making sure you leave your home address. If you are lucky, in a week or two you will get an autograph, which is usually an autographed 8x10. Some schools will send you hats, jerseys, cards, programs, etc., if you are lucky enough.

    Pretty cool to get an autograph from a college coach for not even the price of that 41 cent stamp. :)

    I'd rather just meet them in person. There is no feeling like that of meeting someone you idolize in real life.

      I used to do this when I was younger. I sent cards out and hoped they would come back. Got a couple from Roberto Alomar. Funny, I sent a card to Mark McGwire, he kept my card and sent me a small, crappy photocopied picture with his autograph (also photocopied) on it. Bastard!
      The Brian Sabean sig is no more. I disagreed with you on so many levels. And then you went out and built a dynasty. I am lame.

        Haha, that's funny. I wonder why he didn't sign the card.

          because it was probably valuable, which he decided to keep, because he cant find a card like it.

            You must be the offspring of Bill Gates is you are going to fly (travel) all over the country to meet as many coaches/players as I have gotten thru emails. haha

                Id be guessing Roy Williams the coach. He is the only one i could see doing it although Dallas Roy Williams seems like a really nice guy well he did on MTV Cribs haha.

                    I have the autograph of my favorite player in the NFL, so I'd content.

                      UNC coach Roy Williams.

                      Getting some athletes are pretty hard. Unless you can dig up a personal assistant they have, and find their email, you aren't likely to get an autograph from them through email. If you have an athlete who is signed with a small sports agent, you can usually email them and get an autograph. But the big agents like Condon, Rosenhaus, etc., will just ignore you.

                            Randy Moss. My favorite all time is Cris Carter. My favorite Viking is probably Pat Williams.
