One Finch, Two Finch, Jennie Finch Autograph Demand

I knew Jennie Finch would sell autograph tickets, but I didn't know she would sell more than Cal Ripken Jr.

The fall CSA Show had plenty of Hall of Fame players, big name sports stars and Jennie Finch sold more autograph tickets than any of the guests at the show!
She sold more autograph tickets than:
- Franco Harris
- George Blanda
- Cal Ripken Jr.
- Howie Long
- Johnny Bench
- Pete Rose
- Tom Seaver
- Joe Theisman
- Jim Brown

I think selling more tickets than Cal Ripken Jr. within a 50 mile radius of Camden Yards is pretty amazing. Bill Dudley held the #1 autograph ticket spot, but he canceled just before the show again.

You could get any item autographed by Jennie Finch for $30. She is also signing autographs at the Chicago Sun Times show on Nov. 22.

I never would have guessed that Jennie Finch would outsell all those other guys.

I wonder how much impact pricing had on autograph ticket sales?

And then there's novelty... I'm sure Finch has done a lot fewer public appearances than many of the Hall of Famers on that list.

I wonder if a majority of those tickets were sold to little girl softball players and their parents?

I actually wouldn't mind meeting Jennie Finch and getting an auto from her.

The $30 autograph fee for Jennie Finch probably played a large factor. I wasn't at the show, so I'm not sure if there was a large girls softball crowd on hand.

I did hear from people at the MAB show this weekend that she was great with everyone and was putting any kind of inscription you wanted.
