The Carolina Panthers are a team on the rise thanks to the outstanding play of Cam Newton, who revived the franchise as a rookie and threw for over 4,000 yards.Fans in Charlotte can meet Newton Saturday at SouthPark Mall and ask for an autograph — but it’ll come at a hefty cost.

Newton will sign a photograph for $125 dollars, a football for $150 or a jersey for $175, according to the Charlotte Observer.

That just covers the signature, though. If you want a personalised message, it’s an extra $50 bucks.

The money doesn’t all go to Newton — the signing is run by GT Sports Marketing, which has a contract with Newton for multiple autograph sessions.

For-profit autograph signings are common practice for high-profile athletes and Newton isn’t the only player making a few extra dollars from his signature, but you still have to feel for Panthers fans.
