Agreed. There are many very wealthy players / former players who sign for reasonably fan friendly fees. My sense is insanely high prices are more ego driven than I need to charge $700 to make it worth my time.

Are the insane prices the ballplayers or the show promoters that need to charge that much to afford the player appearance fees? I always thought players charged a flat appearance fee based on time and the promoter would set prices and number of autographs that can fit into that amount of time. I know Tom Orr will do private signings with Reggie Jackson and others like him for $55 and tristar will charge $99 per signature.

Yeah, that's how it's always been in the past. I'm guessing that player appearance fees have gone up, which means the promoters have jacked up the price of each auto to compensate. The promoters used to have reasonable fees and then make it up by having the players also sign a bunch of stuff in a private signing that the promoter could then sell. Not sure what's happening now, but it's trickling down hill to the fan/collector.

Many of the current players sign a ton of autographs at spring training. Last time I went two years ago Bryce Harper, Stephen Strasburg, Carlos Correa, Alex Bregman, Yoenis Cespedes, and Don Mattingly were my big gets. The year before I was in Arizona and got Koufax too; all for free. If you can make the trip and don't mind hanging out in the sunshine for 2 hours, spring training is a pretty good place to be.
