I think we're getting closer to a really great autograph experience for collectors who can't make it to the in-person autograph events.
Steiner Sports recently announced their live web cam to see athletes signing jerseys and photos. This isn't a first for the hobby, but it is a step up from the Pete Rose autographcast hosted by FansEdge.
Next step? I'd like to see some skype video! It would be great to get autograph from your favorite players while having a quick video chat as they sign and personalize your item.
