    What do you think about collecting autographs?


    Personally, I can't think of a good reason what would I do with them.

    I guess it`s like collecting stamps or napkins or whatever. But it would be interesting to compare the different handwritings. Those can tell a lot about people

    I don't like getting autographs... I think it shows that if I value it, the person who's autograph I have dominates some part of my life... However, I wouldn't mind getting them to sell them.

    Yeah, collecting autographs is something that has always made me wonder why anyone would care. Unless you were going to sell it. I know a few people who are all about it, but not for monetary reasons. Meh, to each their own, but not for me.

    I used to go to the Patriot's training camp when I was 9-10 and get autographs from the players, it was awesome :P. I also wrote a few players when I was younger, and I got signed cards back, including a handwritten note from Adam Vinatieri. I guess they all thought it was cute that a kid was writing fan letters.

    It's just sort of cool to "have" if you got it personally. I don't get the thing about buying/selling them though.
    The probability that I was procrastinating when I was typing this post:

    P(have big assignment due) = 0.6
    P(posting on TypoC) = 0.2
    P(having big assignment due | posting on TypoC) = 0.7

    P(posting on TypoC | having big assignment due) = .......


    Eh, I'll finish it later.

    Mementos of any kind, usually do nothing for me.

    Same as any collection.

    Except that kind of collection is centered around people, collecting something vaguely personal.

    I don't really get the idea of autographs

    Maybe for the whole

    Biggest waste of time. Unless you can get money for it. Then, it's all good.

    I had one from Wayne Toups a long time ago. Idk what happened to that. I think I got it when I was about 10. It's probably at my parents' house.

    I got a basketball tshirt signed by the LSU girls team and their coach (Pokey) before she "quit" (rumor had it she had previously been...uh..."involved"...with one of the players no longer on the team). The shirt has been in a closet or box for a long time now.

    And I've got a playbill signed by the Avenue Q cast from when I saw them in NYC a few years ago. Main dude was cute. It's in a frame....again in a box somewhere....

    Besides that...idk, I don't have a great want for autographs. They're kinda stupid. *shrug*
