This YouTube video from All-Star FanFest is making the rounds where a pushy adult insults Hall of Famer Gary Carter for not signing a pair of photos for kids. (He was instead signing All-Star FanFest autograph sheets and cards.)
While a player has the right to sign (or not sign) whatever he wants, the spectacle was made and the adult should look like a fool of much larger proportion than what he tried to make out Carter to be.
Obviously “the fans” in the video never saw Carter play — they weren’t old enough to be alive back in 1992, his last season.
The sad thing? The photos were signed for “the fans” after the stunt, anyway.
And $50 says they’re on eBay right now.
