When Lynn Swann goes to Virginia in March to do an autograph show, he is going to charge $220 for a basic autograph.
For some perspective, at the same show Troy Aikman will charge $135. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar will charge $110-130. Michael Irvin, a better wide receiver, will charge $135.
Maybe this is why I hear so many stories about Swann not signing autographs.
Now for the best part: If you check the website here, there is this disclaimer for Swann: “Lynn Swann will only do HOF or SB MVP inscriptions. He will not sign personalizations or do Photo Op’s. He will not sign trading cards, Goal Line Art Cards, unlicensed Jerseys, or jersey numbers.”
No one else has this many conditions for an autograph. This guy is really something else. Now I get why most of his former teammates will not offer any compliments when they speak about him.
