Before you know it another football season will begin which means summer camp is around the corner for the Kansas City Chiefs. Summer camp is a great opportunity to get Chiefs items autographed by players for you to turn around and sell on eBay!
This year summer camp starts July 29th with the players reporting to camp and the first practice start the next day. The camp will be held in St. Joseph MO at Missouri Western State University.. Fans can watch all practices for free, However, Family Fun Day on August 7th and the Chiefs Sendoff Event on August 18th will require attendees to pay $10 to attend.
There will be a Chief's team shop available for fans to purchase officially licensed team merchandise which a fan can take to an autograph session to have a player sign.
According to the Chief's official website, here are the policies fans are expected to follow when acquiring autographs from players:
An autograph period for fans will take place for a minimum of 10 minutes after each practice session at training camp. A designated position group will ring the fence line on the south and west side of the practice fields. A designated autograph area for kids 15 and under will be available in the southwest corner of the practice fields. In order to accommodate as many fans as possible during the allotted time, please limit your request to one item per player. Due to the anticipated size of crowds at camp, demand for autographs may exceed the ability of players to accommodate all requests due to the camp schedule, especially during two-a-days.
Some players autographs will be worth real money now, however a wise seller may hold onto an item to see if it increases in value. When my wife and I had baseball players autograph items for us, we took a picture of one of us with the player while he is signing the item for the listing. If you are seeking autographs to sell on eBay, keep track of who signs what, as time passes memories start to fade and signatures may be hard to make out.
The Chief's summer camp is a fun way to get ready for the football season and a opportunity to acquire autographed items to sell on eBay.
