Andrew Bynum & Shannon Brown Signings

Lakers center Andrew Bynum made an appearance at a Discount Tire Center in Santa Monica to sign autographs. The autograph signing was free of charge. Wristbands were given out to the first 200 fans. I arrived very early to get a wristband and waited for hours until the signing started. Andrew arrived on time and started signing right away. Discount Tire Center staff were only allowing one item per person.

The line moved pretty fast and had I got a full size basketball signed. After getting my autograph from Andrew I then headed over to Albertsons on Crenshaw for a Shannon Brown signing. The Albertsons store was about ten minutes away. I seen it as a little pit stop before heading home.

I arrived at the Shannon Brown signing thinking that it was completely free. After talking to Albertsons staff I was informed that a purchase was necessary. The autograph was free with a purchase of a tea box. The tea box was $5.99. I guess you can say the autograph was free. $5.99 for an autograph is not much. 8x10 photos were also being given out to people who didn't have items. The photo alone covered my tea cost.

The signing for Shannon Brown was scheduled from 3:00-5:00 pm. Shannon arrived at almost 5:00 pm. Nobody really cared that he was late. We were just happy he showed up. The line moved fast after Shannon started signing since all he does is initial his signature. I was trying to take more pictures but the security guards at the front were jerks. They were treating Shannon as if he were the president of the United States.
