While some players may be harder to get in person, I am not sure anyone is rare. There are thousands of Greinke signed autograph cards out there from Topps, Upper Deck etc.

Zack Greinke is actually a really reserved sort of person. I think a lot of fans think he's somewhat arrogant because of fan interaction but it seems like he just wants to go out and play baseball.

Doesn't Greinke also have a well documented case of Social Anxiety Disorder going all the way back to his minor league days? That would help explain his limited interactions.

Reminds me little bit of Jim Eisenreich back in the day, who was eventually diagnosed with Tourette's.

Greinke is a good egg. Seems to have managed his social anxiety very well and is thriving 10+ years in the league. Saw him when he was a rookie at Royals spring training and there were a bunch of us looking to get his autograph. He was shagging balls in the outfield and not really acknowledging the requests...those guys really changed tones and started giving him a rough time. They eventually left and I was the only guy left...the practice wound down and he came over near me in left field to retrieve a few stray balls. I called over to him and told him I was sorry folks were giving him a hard time and not to hold it against everyone looking for autographs. He called me over, said thanks for understanding and asked for my ball and pen...got a sweet spot ball for being patient and polite.

From what I've been told he's just kinda shy with people he doesn't know. By virtue of other players he's a hell of a great teammate.

Jurickson Profar had a horrible reputation when I was at Rangers camp a few years ago. He was still a top prospect then. I heard more than one fan describe him as human garbage. Not sorry his career is where it is.

I've always found Verlander to be impossible too. Even when he was a rookie he ignored people. Tigers camp has always been one of the most accessible and fan friendly camps and I have never seen Verlander sign one autograph.

Aren't some players under contract to only sign autographs for a particular company? Maybe that is the case.
