Jose Bautista and Joe Carter are the latest baseball celebrities to join the roster of a new online company selling personalized digital autographs and audio messages to fans. For $50 a pop, Joey Bats and Jumpin' Joe will send you a personalized voice recording on a topic of your choice — within reason (see below) — as well as an electronic signature, courtesy of Egraphs. "It's a new generation of autographs," says Gabe Kapler, who spent 12 years as a big-league outfielder and is now leading Egraphs' business development team. "The fan is going to receive something that nobody has seen before. The player is going to have an easier method of interacting and sharing a personal experience with their fans."
