Good for him I suppose, why not get money if you can. It's not like he's the first person to ever charge money for autographs.

Tom Brady is signing autographs for $1,000, so crack open that college fund

TriStar Memorabilia is hosting a private signing for Brady, and as long as you’ve got the coin, you get the benefits. How much coin, you ask? Well, grab your wallets, because even reading this list will cost you twenty bucks:

• Signed 8×10 photo: $849
• Signed mini-helmet: $899
• Signed football: $999
• Signed helmet: $1,099
• Signed jersey: $1,199

I'd sign autographs for $100.

what a heel, do you know how many candy bars or glasses of lemonade some little kid is going to need to sell to come up with the grand that Brady is extorting these children for?

Many legendary athletes do this. Tristar has been doing this for a long time across all sports with many athletes. This isn't Brady going out and pocketing all that cash. Memorabilia is a market just like trading cards. An athlete like Brady will pull in big $$ because who he is. Get a grip.

Leroy Butler has been doing it for years, I have a signed Lambeau Leap picture somewhere in my photos. Jared Cook will sign a picture of his great sideline catch in the Dallas game, that says, "he went to Jared"! This isn't new!

I'm tempted to get the "he went to Jared" one and send it to my niece. They wrote all over their face book page how it was going to overtime and Packers were going to choke again! I do love my family, but very trying during football and not my fault they like the Lions!

A fool and their money are soon parted...

I mean, seriously. A signed jersey? Who is going to display that? It's got all the style and culture of Dogs Playing Pool or Elvis on black velvet.

Note:
This is in reference to the one-born-every-minute crowd willing to pony up for this trash, not the guys happily selling the trash to eager buyers (if they wanted tacky stuff with my autograph on it, I'd happily sell!).

If people want to give him handfuls of money, I don't see why he can't take it.

Most of what is signed will end up in a memorabilia shop or on E-Bay. Smart business move by Brady. Actually, he's likely being paid a fee from the host who then sets the rates to recoup and hopefully profit on what Brady was paid.
