I agree with you there. How much lower do you think they would go? I am thinking that the purpose of this whole thing is to generate funds for their foundations (very worthy causes). The entrance fee's will basically pay for the facility and operating costs of the event. So where does the money come from that goes to the foundations? The least expensive autograph you could get from either of them at a show would be $100. I thought the $75 was exactly what you stated...a lower price than they would give a show promoter.

I will be willing to bet you can buy a photo for 5-10 bucks... if they have those Redskin logo footballs, you could probably buy one of those for between 30-50. It will be interesting to see what the reports from people who go come back at.

I would be willing to bet at 25-35 a head to get in, there will be profit there alone. They will also be taking donations and raising the awareness of their charites. They will also have corporate sponsors who will cover most if not all of the actual expenses of the events to have their names associated with Art & Darrell.

My guess would be that the items they will have at the events will be the same "Route 281" merchandise that they have on the website. I kind of doubt they will have a panoply of memorabilia.

Re: Art Monk in Chantilly

I sent them an email earlier today asking for more information. I will post if and when they reply. I have no idea what they may be offering for sale, but it may be just what SC Skins Fan said. Tough to say when they don't have anything else listed.

Re: Art Monk in Chantilly

Okay, I did not get a response to my email, so I called DG Enterprises. Here is the scoop: They will have t-shirts, polo shirts, and route 281 footballs at this weekends event (and maybe one or two other items already listed on their site).

Pricing will be:
Route 281 football w/ Monk and Green autograph-$75
Route 281 polo w/ Monk and Green autograph-$50
Route 281 tshirt w/ Monk and Green autograph-$30

There will be no photos, mini helmets, or any other non Route 281 merchandise available and they will not sign items that are not purchased at the event. The other Redskins that are appearing will not be signing autographs (but you will be able to meet them). The lady that I spoke with was very nice and seemed to know what she was talking about.

So, here is my take on this. The signed football is a super deal that you can't beat, and I will gladly purchase one for my collection. It seems to be the best way to celebrate two of our favorite players being inducted into the HOF. I really don't care for the autographed tshirt or polo, but thats just me.

Great info, and your correct, compared to the for profit shows, the football is a bargin.

Re: Art Monk in Chantilly

Yep, sure will.

On another note, I read a review of the Route 281 experience. It seems that they marked the prices on the footballs up from $75 to $200 right there on the spot. Now, that is still a better price than you would get elsewhere...but still a lame thing to do to your fans.
