    Then the obligatory trip to Allsports in Lex

    Never been to one. How do they work? Do you pay something for the autograph? How much?

    I’ve always assumed it was a way to make money, but it’s hard to believe it’s worth the effort when you’re about to earn millions.

    E-town, we call it. And we say the Town-E Mall, to play on the name.

      I went last year for Hawkins/Willis and Monk, it varies but I think $25/$30 per autograph, and u also get a picture. Athlete essentials typically organizes it, so I’d say $25.

    Just my opinion, but I hate this. You know what would be actually nice? Do it for free.

      Or charity.

      100000% agree. When I was a kid, every year the Seniors would do their barnstorming tour. That was a highlight of my summer. I guess taking the money is the thing now, but when you’re a soon to be millionaire, taking $25 bucks from some fans where that’s real money just seems wrong. But that’s just me.

      You two and Randall Lee don’t HAVE to go, ya know…

      I’m going to go out on a limb and say you guys are probably also lousy tippers.

    5. DT in DC

      Considering I don’t live in state, I won’t be. Nor would I go if I lived in state. And at least 20% tipper, for your information. Idiot.

      DT just got triggered. Hard.

      Players have charged for these signing tours, including the old barnstorming tours for as long as I can remember.

    Come and meet one of the players that helped end our 3-pointer streak!

    Don’t worry, Kevin – plenty of real, good UK fans will show up to support you.

    Never understood the infatuation with an 18-22 year-old’s signature. Or any other human being’s signature, for that matter.

      Great point…

    2. Luether

      And it’s NOT like they need the money. Pure greed…

  7. A_Blue_Wildcat

    I really don’t get the attraction of getting a dude’s signature who only played here for one year, especially when all we really won this year was an SEC tourney (which isn’t bad, but just isn’t that significant)

    1. UK Big Board Update

      So, you’re not going?

    Never been, never will
