Unless you are an old guy collecting 1920's Yankee's memorabilia, why would you want something signed by a professional skier? You basically just got some kid who is really good at a sport/activity to put ink all over your stuff? It seems to me that it would make a helmet, pair of skis, jacket, etc worth less if it was written on. If you were going to hang the item on the wall and just look at it, I can understand the signing deal. But, if you are going to use it, that is kind of odd.
