…if an act is selling autographed LPs I might buy one (why more acts don’t do this is beyond me…automatic money maker and isn’t the point to get your records out there?)
I 100% agree. 
If I was a touring act, each night before the show, I'd have the band sign 10 LPs and charge $50. 
I bet every night they'd sell out.  The fans would feel comfortable that these were legit copies and the band wouldn't easily make a few hundred extra each night for 5 mins with a sharpie...and not have to take selfies with sweaty fans

ah the joe strummer of the merch table

Shirts go for like $50 now.  Something that is hand signed by the band...totally worth it
I mean if that was too much, the person could buy the non-signed one for $25

although here I am arguing with the guy who likely has over 250 signed records in his possession ( signed right in front of you) that he wasn't charged a dime for

I doubt it’s even 100!


One has to really be into a musician to schlep a record around the entire show and spend an hour or two after the show waiting around, hoping, looking kind of like a dork

It’s been a good while since I got a record signed at a show…

I should come up with a list of my would be top gets…
