I don't see it as you getting less for your money at all. You are getting something specific signed that you want signed rather than a random photo that someone else chose that you might not like or which might not fit in your collection. I'd much rather have it that way than have the policy be, "Our guests will only sign the pictures they have at their booths and nothing else."I totally agree about the no free pic if you brought your own item crap. Why do we get less for our money if we have our own item?!?!?! While I am pleased with the guests that were brought in, outside of that, I am COMPLETELY unhappy with official pix and their incompetent management of this celebration.
