Dodgers FanFest Autograph Vouchers Being Sold on Ebay and Craigslist

Yep, you read the title right.  Yesterday, tickets to get autograph vouchers for Dodgers FanFest were on sale online.  Season ticket holders got a head start with a code to buy autograph vouchers at 10:00 a.m..  Everyone else had the opportunity starting at noon.  By the time my parents were able to get on the computer to start buying, they were unable to buy tickets.  That is because the vouchers were all being sold in the process and ran out within the hour.  You probably even had the same problem with getting a voucher for someone like Yasiel Puig.  Thankfully, my parents were able to get me a voucher for Shawn Green and Seth Rosin at 10 - 10:50 a.m. and Stephen Fife and John Valentin at 11 - 11:50 a.m..  Shawn Green was the main voucher that I needed considering that I had bought a picture of him.  For anyone that might have bought a voucher for a fan favorite, they are already selling it on ebay and craigslist at a high price.

I had high expectations to get a good autograph voucher when they were available.  However, upon considering the competition, I had decreased it to a more realistic option like Shawn Green.  I even wanted a Nomar Garciaparra voucher, but that was sold out as well.  Now I'm just plain mad with people buying vouchers that everyone else wanted for ten bucks and then selling it at a ridiculous price.  That's highway robbery!  The FanFest tickets were an opportunity for pretty much everyone to get an autograph from their favorite players, not for some fool to get a quick buck.  But hey, I should have expected some jerk to do something like that.  No worries.  I'll hopefully put this aside as FanFest comes around this Saturday.  Until then, see ya!
