    First time I'm gonna be in Vegas for a fight and was wondering if there's any boxers who do signings and meet and greets for money on the Strip in places?

    Great site. I think that im gonna go meet Tyson friday. His 1 man stand up mea culpa (Sic) was great. The guy has made a ton of F-ups in life and fell for some really pretty woman (cant say I blame him). I'd like to shake his hand. I met Leon Spinks at the Orlean 4 weeks ago at the Tempations concert!!

    Also you can meet these guys and some other old boxers and athletes at the tristar shop at miracle mile shops at PHO. They actually own field of dreams now. Once I was there and got gloves signed by Spinks, Ernie Shavers and Ken Norton before he died. The price also included a photo of those guys with me and then they signed that also. They were all VERY cool and friendly. I think that website is tristar memorabilia.com . Im gonna be in Vegas the day after the big fight and thinking of going to Caesars and get a Tyson autographed glove,

    Yeah, seems like Tyson is at the one in the Venetian more often than not. I've seen him and other sports guys at the one in PH (UFC fighters, Pete Rose etc.
    MGM might be a good place as well if there's a fight going on that weekend. I was there last month and they had a ring set up in the casino for sparring. I didn't pay too much attention but could have been some decent opportunity to get an auto unless they don't allow that there.

    I used to collect autographs in the 70s and 80s. Different world then! You couldn't pay me to get a Rodman autograph!
     
    Will give them a try!

    i missed mike tysons signings on thursday and saturday....I had no plans to pay all that money when all i wanted was a picture with my own phone, would have even payed a small fee for that...

    so sunday im at carnival court drunk, i thought i was going to have an easy relaxed day but early excessive drunkness kicked in. I had won about $3500 and was happy and decided that the money was going home with me the next day and not back to the casino...


    so several people at the bar started buying drinks and somehow they kept buying me drinks...I said ill be right back im going to run across the street and get a pic with mike tyson

    I went in the store with about 5 minutes before the signing was over. asked the guy running the store if i could just do a pic with my phone, all i got was no, no and more nos...so i said fuck it, bought a $300 glove and made sure he didnt charge me any tax, it was more like $299.44

    so mike autographed the glove, got a few pics and shook his hand...hes really nice seemed to really be into it unlike some celebs

    now i have a glove I paid $300 for that i didnt want or need, just wanted a picture so i posted it on facebook for actual value no mark up $300 and my friends girl is gonna buy it for him as a suprise birthday present


    all around it all worked out
