Egraphs: Autographs for the Digital Age

I’m not much of an autograph guy, but these Egraphs look kind of cool. Egraphs are a combination autographed photo, personal note, and voice recording from your favorite baseball players.

The company takes a digital signature and a personalized note from your favorite MLB star and sticks it on a digital picture. They also record a greeting from the player. The company hopes to expand to football and basketball players, as well as celebrities.

I clicked on some of the Egraphs to see what the players had to say. Jim Thome doesn’t mince words. Derek Holland doesn’t do a Harry Carray impression. Brandon Snyder wants to get a chicken lunch with Sharon. I am upset that Ozzie Guillen has not recorded anything yet.

What does everyone else think? Would you buy one?
