I think the most important question of all is... if Mr. George Herman "Babe" Ruth were, in fact, around today:
- would he still sign free autographs?
- would he do card shows?
- and if so, how much would he charge for autographs?
- (and how much extra for large items, personalization/inscriptions, &c.?)
- Or would he just chuck it all and do a deal with Steiner or Upper Deck or someone like that?????
Of course, we do have to include csh19792001's various variables in the mix... can't ignore them, no way, no how, wouldn't be prudent...

Into a windup, his first pitch in the history of Citi Field, a fastball for a called strike to Jody Gerut. Gerut off to a .214 start with no homers and one RBI. - Howie Rose calls the very first pitch thrown at Citi Field, April 13, 2009
