Carolina Panthers quarterback, the sensational Cam Newton, signed autographs in Charlotte Saturday. The catch? To receive an autograph, those who attended had to pay to have items signed, ranging from $125-$175.
Killa Cam spent nearly an hour signing for about 300 people, but it’s safe to say he probably would have been there longer had the prices not been so high. Whatever happened to free autographs? I know I wouldn’t pay that much for a signature, I firmly believe signing autographs for fans is the duty of an athlete.
So, was the turnout a disappointment? Perhaps. But I’m sure pocketing several thousands of dollars for an hour of work will sit just fine with Newton.
