Don't know if any other 'Maners were there, but Von was signing at the Colorado Mills Mall tonight. Lots of Bronco fans in attendance, Von was nice as well. I know some people are memoribilia nerds like myself, and I know others find it completely stupid. But I thought it was fun, and I can't wait to get the jersey framed.

Also funny is that the the poster was supposed to be signed 2012 AFC West Champs. I was there by myself, while Von was signing that the guy was asking me what color pen on the jersey, everything was kind of happening at once. So either it will be awesomely prophetic or just a weird/funny story.

Some photos:

It was $49 for the poster and $69 for the jersey. Inscriptions were an extra $20, so I paid $69 total for the poster.

As far as who is in charge of the price, I don't know how it works, to be honest. I'd imagine that the store hosting it chooses what to charge and that Von gets a flat fee, $5K, $10K, whatever.

On that topic, I went to a Ty Lawson signing last week. While there, the owner announced that the store would be having a Bronco player that was TBA. He then followed that up with "It's not Peyton. If somebody wants to put up the other $50K I'd be glad to have him." So take that FWIW.

You know, he walked right by me and he didn't really seem super imposing, now that you mention it.

Yep, not really.

Thought this was interesting from the pic/article.

former Cardinals scout Dave Razzano doesn't think Miller's motor revs at a high rpm often enough.

You know in about 200 years this song is going to be considered a masterpiece. Such artistry!

Yeah not sure why I didn't post something earlier. Anyways, here's two sites for people:

http://www.mikesss.com/

This place has Chris Harris on the 22nd or so, and then a week later Ronnie Hillman. This is the definition of a mom and pop type store, but the owner is super nice.

http://www.denverautographs.com/

The second place (which did Von tonight) has two locations, is a little more professional/organized, but both places are cool. This place that had Von just had Demaryius a week or two ago, which I missed. Maybe they have the resources for bigger names?

Anyways, just sign up for their e-mail updates. There may be others, perhaps Field Of Dreams? But these are what I've found so far.

When I lived in Colorado, I went to Mike's Stadium Sports Cards, that guy is an awesome owner of the place. He needs to do a better job with an online presence IMO, but has built a great standing with the locals already there.

One guy I really, really, really want to meet and get an autograph of is Champ Bailey.

Also, I do believe the amount the autograph is determined by the player. That is a decent price for Von actually, some might think its steep but yeah.
Consider some more established/HOF guys charge $100-$200 for a signature, then yeah.

DUUUUUDE!!!!

I've been wishing for weeks I could find a way to get a Von Miller autograph for my son. Von is his fave player. He's 14, about the same age I was when Elway came to the Broncos and I really loved a player. For the first time he is caught up in a player and it's kind of fun to watch. He was whooping and hollering like he won the lottery when VM got his pick 6.

Anyway, if you had said something before I would've arranged for you to get something for me!

Von's cousin works at the dog track near me. She told me she could get me an autographed picture.

I told her I want Von and Elvis, signed "Von Doom."

I'll post it here if I get it.

When I was in Denver in October, I hit up Colorado Mills (it's just north in Lakewood right?) and saw an autograph store there. He had tons of signed stuff, including lots of Von signed mini-footballs with his "DROY" on it. My reservation was the guy looked like an A-Class sleaze ball so I shied away from buying anything without being able to do my research first. If it's the same place and I know it's legit, having players sign there and all, I would feel a little more comfortable dropping some dough on merch.
