How many Hall of Famers have you had the chance to meet? New venture VIDSIG connects you that opportunity, connecting you with some of the greatest to have ever played the game. Orlando Cepeda will be available for a “LIVE” 1-on-1 video signing and chat on Saturday, January 5th, starting at 12:30pm.

That’s not all, though! In addition to asking Baby Bull all about his baseball exploits, VIDSIG gives you the chance to have him sign memorabilia. It’s kind of like attending a card show, only it’s right in your home via webcam or on your cell phone.

Here’s an example of a memorabilia signing:

8”x10” Photo Signing - $99

You’ll get to personally say hello to Orlando and watch him autograph your Photo. After your session, you get the autographed photo and the recording of your experience to share and remember forever!

You can also have him sign a baseball, a bat, jerseys, photos, and even create a personalized video postcard. See the entire catalogue here. But back to that first point:

The granddaddy of it all is the “LIVE” 1-on-1 conversation. In every session, Cepeda will talk with you while he signs your memorabilia (you can also arrange to send in your own memorabilia for him to sign), and you have the option to purchase additional time of 3, 5, or 8-minute sessions with Cha Cha.

It’s $149 $89 for those additional 3 minutes, giving you just enough time to ask him about playing in the All Star Games from 1959-1964 and being on the field with so many other Hall of Famers in their prime.

At $239 $169, you’ll have 5 minutes to ask him all about the longest home run he ever hit and his favorite places to play, pitchers to hit against, etc. You can get into some minutiae about his career — how often do you get to do that with a Hall of Famer?

And for $399 $199, you can delve into Al Dark’s plus-minus system and the horrible relationship Cepeda had with the Giants’ manager, who was not a good person!

Cepeda was one of the most feared hitters of his time, winning the Rookie of the Year award in the Giants’ first year in San Francisco and smacking 226 home runs across nine seasons by the bay. He’s a living legend, and he’s not the only one.

VIDSIG can also connect you to legends like Joe Montana and Joe Morgan. Any conversation I might have with Joe Montana would wind up turning into an episode of the Chris Farley Show; and, I would love nothing more than to ask Joe Morgan what he thinks about wRC+. VIDSIG could make that fantasy a reality.

This seems like the perfect holiday gift for the avid baseball fan(s) in your life.
