Covid 19 Changes To Public Event Format FAQ:


Please remember this is the first public autograph session in Virginia since our current Covid 19 crisis.  Please be flexible when attending the event.  We are literally reinventing the wheel and need everyone to be patient with us.  Things may change mid event as we see how things go.  Also remember that masks are required by all customers in the mall.  Refusal to wear a mask will have you removed by mall security.  If you have already purchased autographs etc and are removed by security, no refund will be issued:

October 3rd Frequently Asked Questions:

Q:  Do you accept credit cards?
A:  Sorry, we only accept cash payments at our events.  There is an ATM in the mall.

Q:  Will I be able to go on stage like the old days and shake the athletes’ hand?
A:  Because of social distancing, you will need to stay on the ground next to the stage.  If you brought an item from home, a runner will take that from you to the athlete.  The same runner will also get any items you purchase from us and hand it to the athlete.  You will then talk with the athlete as he signs your item about how you want it etc.  The runner will then bring your items back to you.

Q:  Can I take pictures with the athletes?
A:  You may take pictures of the athlete during the event, but only from beside the stage (that is, no one except the athlete and Leader in Sports personnel are allowed on-stage).

 Q:  Can I take pictures with the athletes before or after they are on stage?
A:  This will be a big no and could get us shut down by mall management.  Please respect the limits so that we can hopefully do this again.

Q:  Will I stand in line to get the athlete’s autograph?
A:  Because of social distancing, when you purchase your autographs you will receive a receipt with a number for each athlete.  The runners will call those numbers and tell you what part of the stage to go to. 

 Q:  Can I bring my own items to be signed?
A:  Yes, the runner will get them from you when it’s your turn, and take it to the athlete.  You can describe how you would like it signed to the athlete and take pictures from the ground.  The runner will then return the item(s) to you.

Q:  Can I purchase an item from you and not have it signed?
A:  Unfortunately, no.  All items purchased from us will not be in your possession until after it is signed by at least one athlete.

Q:  Do you have mini helmets available for the signing?
A:  Yes, we have a limited number of both licensed Redskins and unlicensed custom mini helmets available for the signing.  They are first come first served.
