    Andrei attended a show and I was able to have him sign my mma glove. He signed the striking surface, and its the only pair of mma gloves that I have. Should I still use the glove, or buy another pair for training? I would still use it, but I really don't know if his autograph is THAT valuable.

    What would the cage do?

    I seriously doubt you would ever been able to sell them for decent money.

    It really depends on if you want to keep it as a collectors item or they are more valuable to you as a training tool.

    Sell them on E Bay, buy 3-4 pairs with the profit, forge his signature on one of those pairs and prosper with the other pairs.

    Run a contest for cage crew, liddell vs evans, closest guess gets the gloves.

    I wanted him to write down "How tastes my pee pee?" on the gloves...but he didn't even speak to me the whole time. Dude just grabbed the glove, signed it, and gave me a staredown before he handed it back to me.

    I'll pick up a pair another of training gloves, and keep these untouched for now. These gloves are the competition style gloves with very little padding, and I've always wanted a pair with thicker padding for the sake of my training partners.

    is MMA memorabilia really worth anything? i don't know anyone that would pay for gloves that arlovski signed. i think it would be cool to take a picture with him or something, but unless he gave me the gloves for free i'd prefer them with no signature at all

    Unless there is a C.O.A., the gloves will never be worth more than gloves that have been written on. But they are a cool keep-sake if you are an AA fan.

    I can smile when its raining.
    Wear them in training. Call them Training-worn MMA gloves, signed by arlovski. Then people will get the wrong idea, more money = more profit.
