Auction item thought

Looking through the auction items, the only thing I see that REALLY interests me is the framed poster signed by the entire 18-19 squad. I have a few autographs of players already (Salt, Guy, Diakite, Badocchi) that I've gotten from the Meet the Team days the last two years, but it has always irked me that I have to stand in line "per player" and you only wind up getting 2, maybe 3, autographs if you're lucky.

So since everyone is all stirred up over VAF using the banner ceremony as a way to raise money, what about this - just have the players sit at a long table and let people go down the line for autographs. Instead of opening JPJ at 6:30, they could open at 3 to give ample time. But here's the catch - charge to get the autographs. I would happily pay $100 to have my own autographed poster from the entire team. If 400 people bought "tickets", that's $40k, more than the current $35,350 total of all the auction items.
