San Francisco Giants’ relief ace Brian Wilson will do a public autograph session at the end of the month. How popular is the man with the baddest beard in baseball?
Wilson, the three-time All-Star who is the modern era’s answer to Al “Mad Hungarian” Hrabosky, has agreed to sign at ManCave Sports in San Mateo August 31. It’ll be his only private signing session of 2011. The company says it expects tickets won’t last, despite what seems like a hefty price tag for a relief pitcher who isn’t dead.
“We are so honored and excited to have Brian Wilson at ManCave Memorabilia for our amazing customers,” says a company bulletin. “Brian Wilson will be signing autographs at ManCave Memorabilia on Wed Aug 31st, 2011 from 6:00pm to 7:30pm. There will be no video cameras allowed but you may bring a camera to take photos of the event and Brian Wilson signing your item. We anticipate a major response.”
Prices range from $150 for an ordinary item like an 8×10 or baseball to $175 for a ‘premium’ item and $200 for art work. Inscriptions are $40.
