I was just up in Toronto to take my 17 year old son to the comic/scifi/horror/gaming expo for his birthday present(he is a comic book fan). His argument for going is that actors from stargate and star trek were going to be there namely:
I know Shatner and Nimoy charge outrages amount for an autograph(which I disagree fans made them).
but I was shocked that the rest were charging 20-25 for autographs. I was hoping to get Pauls,Roberts and Morenas autographs but that would have cost me 75.00 bucks(admission cost me 39.00). I have gone to two other conventions in my life with James Dohan(scotty) and Morina Serttis(Troi) both did not charge for autographs.
I know people get autographs and sell them at a profit but they usually want lots of things signed which at that point I believe they should charge after say one or two signatures.
I stood in line to help my son get some signatures from comic artist and writers like Jim Lee(Batman fame). My son had one comic others had boxes yet the artist/writers signed them all. which I thought was to much but still they signed at no charge.
in my closing rant I say shame on the actors who charge the fans for one autograph after the fans are the reason they have jobs.
