Greg Townsend Autograph Signing

The Raider's all time sack leader Greg Townsend made an appearance at a Raider Image store in the Ontario Mills Mall. When I arrived the the Mall was packed but the Raider Image store was empty. Greg was there just talking with a few fans.

This was not a free signing. Fans had to purchase an item from the Raider Image store or Greg to get an autograph. Greg had football cards and photos available that he would sign after being purchased. I had a Raider Image gift card good for $25 and used it to purchase a mini helmet for $29.99. I just paid the difference out of pocket. Since I made a purchase it entitled me to the free autograph.

Signing Recap:
  • People in line? Zero. I was in and out of the store in about 5 minutes.
  • Free signing? Hell no. A purchase was necessary.
  • Giveaways? None, but a lot of girls were walking around.
  • Which Raider Image location? Ontario.

I asked Greg if he could inscribe Super Bowl XVIII on my mini helmet. He wanted to charge me $10 for the inscription. I told him "nevermind".

Greg is 16th on the NFL's all time sack list with 109.5 sacks. I'm glad I was able to meet him again. I say that because I also attended a Greg Townsend appearance at the same Raider Image store a couple of years ago. If you would like to read about that signing then click on the link here.

Thanks to Raider Image and Greg Townsend for this appearance.
