Buy Expensive Sunglasses; Get an Autograph

With Black Friday just three days away, Oakley Stores are anxious to see whether a new promotion involving autographs might jump start sales.

Beginning Friday, November 23, shoppers have the opportunity to receive autographed items from some of the athletes who wear its sunglasses and other gear.

The world’s number one golfer Rory McIlroy, baseball’s Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera, gold medalist Kerri Walsh, race car icon Tony Stewart, and skateboarding phenom Bob Burnquist are among the athletes who have signed items that will be available for purchases of $250 or more. Autographed items include signed baseballs, tennis balls, racing helmet visors, and posters, and are available to customers who make a $250 purchase at Oakley Stores on Black Friday while supplies last.

Oakley sells eyewear, apparel, watches and accessories.

No word on exactly how the promotion will work but it is limited to one per person.
