Attending the East Coast National

Does the end justify the means?

That’s a big question that most (if not all) of us face in this hobby. Should I shell out hundreds of dollars for a 5 second photo op with an A-lister? Should I spend my entire day and night in airports or hotel lobbies to score that big photo op or autograph I need on my piece? Do I travel across the state to attend that big time convention?

Do I dare purchase photo ops from B.G. Entertainment at these sports shows?

That’s the question I’ve come to ask myself every single time a New York Yankee is booked for MAB’s Pinstripe Parade or JP Sports & Rock Solid Promotions. We’ve all heard horror stories – or perhaps actually experienced those horror stories. But I have to be honest here: I’ve never had a poor experience with B.G. Entertainment. Are their photo ops perfect? No. Do I particularly care if they’re perfect? I honestly don’t. My personal criteria for a good photo op: no blurriness, no heads digitally cutoff, and (hopefully) I look presentable. That’s it.

So by that criteria that I’ve set for myself, B.G. Entertainment hasn’t really let me down; in fact, the Sopranos group shot I took earlier this year is among my favorite photo ops ever. They came through.

And if we’re talking strictly about the outcome of the photo ops…they came through again, in my eyes. The Sabathia shot is one of my favorites. But the entire¬†process? That’s a whole other story this time around. There was one point in the evening where I sat down and asked myself, “Does the end justify the means?” Let’s see what my answer was…

Meeting the BamTino

A few weeks ago, StubHub announced a free signing with former Yankees first baseman Tino Martinez at their NYC location. I was fortunate enough to grow up during the Yankees last dynasty (World Champs in 1996; 1998-2000 plus a World Series appearance in 2001). There’s no question that the BamTino was a huge reason for New York’s success in the late 90s and was one of my favorite Yankees growing up.
