Baltimore County police will not discipline the officer who received an autograph from Ravens running back Ray Rice during a traffic stop in Owings Mills on Monday, a department spokesman said. Lt. Robert McCullough said investigators confirmed that the officer got the signature after he had verbally warned Rice that the tint on his white Range Rover's windshield was darker than the law allows. Maryland law prohibits car windows from being tinted at more than 35 percent, a limitation enacted primarily as a safety measure to ensure police officers can see inside vehicles.

The sporting good store Poor Boys is hoping to add some sizzle to its latest store opening by dangling live Terrell Suggs autograph time as an incentive. But folks who want those signatures will have to pay for it. To have Suggs put his John Hancock on an item, it will cost $65. That's roughly $5.41 per letter. Then, if you want Suggs to actually write a message along with the signature, that's $90. Even for that price, the Ravens linebacker won't get up and take a picture with fans.

Orioles reliever Brian Matusz remembers laughing when he opened the piece of fan mail in Sarasota, Fla., last month. He immediately showed the contents of the manila envelope to Orioles head athletic trainer Richie Bancells before informing manager Buck Showalter. "I'm like, Richie, can you believe this?' Then I told Buck about it," Matusz said recently, chuckling. "That's probably the most unusual, interesting item any fan has ever asked me to sign. I thought it was hilarious.

Had a chance today to speak to Earl Weaver, the Orioles' Hall of Fame manager who will be one of the club's six icons to be honored with a bronze statue this year at Camden Yards. Calling from South Florida, Weaver said he was overwhelmed by the gesture. “It's quite an honor and something you never expect to happen in anyone's life,” said Weaver, who won 1,480 games with the Orioles and led the club to one world championship (1970) and three other World Series appearances (1969, 1971, 1979)

Inflation takes effect immediately in at least one area the very moment Bill Clinton becomes president:The value of his signature more than doubles.A pre-presidential Bill Clinton signature is worth about $65. Few Clinton signatures have been collected, for he didn't really look like a good bet to become president until last summer.The signatures Clinton writes as president, however, will be valued at a more impressive $150.Of course, no one can guarantee whether that value will rise or fall in the future.

Autograph festivals might cater to fans, but athletes can get caught up in the hoopla as well. This weekend's signing event at Towson University - one of the largest ever held - will corral about 80 one-time members of the Baltimore Colts and Ravens, as well as some current Ravens. It has been billed as a multi-generational shindig, a historic treat for fans as well as for the players, many of whom have never met their sidekicks from the "other" pro football team that won the city's heart.

We spend a lot of time during the offseason talking about market value. What's the market on free-agent closers? When will the starting pitcher market set itself? And then there's the market on this year's Orioles FanFest autograph vouchers, which went on sale Satrurday morning on the club's website. Some sessions sold out in a matter of minutes, and the entire schedule sold out in 64 minutes, according to the team. I received several emails Saturday from some frustrated fans who said they were unable to purchase vouchers even though they tried right at 10 a.m. Their frustration piqued when they saw the vouchers immediately being posted on Craigslist and eBay for profit.

A little more than two weeks before he hits the open market and is allowed to sign with another team, outside linebacker Paul Kruger's mindset remains the same as it was in the hours that followed the Ravens' 34-31 victory over the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII . "There's no reason to want to go to anywhere else," said Kruger, the Ravens' sack leader this past year and, starting March 12, one of the top free agent pass rushers available....

Ralph Johnson knows they will come. Bring a Ravens player to Man Cave Memorabilia, the store his daughter owns in Glen Burnie, and the fans will turn out. That includes the guy who collects autographs on the hood of his Jeep. And the one who has players sign his skin, then goes directly to a tattoo shop to have the ink forever embedded a few levels deeper. "That's a little nuts," said Johnson, who arranges the signings. "And that was before the Super Bowl . It's at a new level now. " While Ravens players continue sorting through endorsement offers, many of them are taking advantage of their heightened popularity with appearances and signings.

The Autograph Man, by Zadie Smith. Random House. 400 pages. $24.95. Alex-Li Tandem is the autograph man, a dealer in famous signatures. He lives in England on the fringes of the entertainment industry, "a minor incidence in the lives of others." He is a spectator, a collector, an observer in this bittersweet (and in some ways failed) new novel by Zadie Smith. Importantly, Alex-Li is also beset with an obsession. He wants -- no, needs -- the rare and elusive signature of Kitty Alexander, a screen star and glamour girl from the golden days of cinema.
