No more Sharpies needed: Autographs go digital



Baseball fans, rejoice! Autographs of your favorite athletes can be had with a click of a mouse -- and a credit card to cover the cost. offers a high-resolution photo and a personalized autograph signed electronically by the player for $50. You can also get an audio greeting of up to 30 seconds. 

For now, Egraphs has a lineup of nearly 100 baseball players, including Rays' David Price, Joe Maddon, Jeremy Hellickson and James Shields, as well as Red Sox players Dustin Pedroia and David Ortiz. But expect to see expansions to other professional sports leagues, or even to music and movie stars.

Check out this video from Bloomberg of recently retired pitcher Kerry Wood signing his autograph for fans using Egraphs.
