Greg Townsend Autograph Signing

Greg Townsend made one of his many appearances at the Raider Image in Ontario. The Raider Image in Ontario is Greg's second home. He practically lives there. I headed to this event knowing that it would be another easy autograph session.

I found some of Greg's football cards in my collection and knew I wanted to get them signed. When I arrived in the late afternoon only a few kids were in line getting autographs.  I only took football cards since greg signs them for a reasonable price. He signed my cards and we talked about the upcoming football season for a bit.

Signing Recap: 
  • People in line when I arrived? 2 kids. 
  • Free signing? No, he charged me $5.00 for each card signed. 
  • Items per person? As many as you wanted. You would just have to keep feeding him money.
  • Giveaways? None.
  • City of the event? Ontario. 

This is what Greg had to offer fans that didn't bring their 
own items. Everything on this table was for sale. He also mentioned 
his new book when we talked. It's pictured in the bottom right corner.

Greg's real money maker is charging fans for photo 
ops at $5 a pop. Here I am with Greg on December 2, 2009.

Here I am with Greg on May 8, 2011.

Here I am with Greg on September 17, 2011.

Another photo with Greg on September 17, 2011.

Last but not least. Here I am with Greg in our most recent photo.

Greg is the only person that I'v ever paid for a photo op. All combined I'v paid Greg $20 just to take pictures with him. The truth is I don't mind since he never made nearly as much money as current football players. Will this be the last Greg Townsend appearance I attend? Probably not. It's always an easy meet and greet autograph session and he may need the money. 

Thanks to The Raider Image in Ontario and Greg Townsend for this appearance.
