Whenever a fan asked him to sign on the sweet spot as is the standard practice, his stock answer was, "No, you're just going to sell it on eBay." Really? If you wanted a picture signed, he'd personalize it, as if there's a big market to sell Steve Stone photos.
I wish Steve Stone would check eBay to see what the market is for anything he has signed. Not that it would change his lofty opinion of himself, but we can dream. He was making an appearance at the Harry Caray's in Lombard a few years ago, and he insisted on personalizing his autograph with a ballpoint pen. Thanks, Steve.
