His was the only picture I didn't want at the Expo. Same with Sergio Oliva. He's a nice guy, but he wouldn't let me get a pic of him, a decrepid old man, unless I bought a 15 dollar signed black and white pic. Although, he has more of a right than Lou does to charge...at least he was Mr. O.
Lou used to give out autographs and pictures for free. I met him the first time in 1994 and he was super nice. Gave me an autograph, and took a picture with me and talked for a minute or two. Since then I have met him 3 other times and he has been as described, no pictures unless you buy something, but he has always been nice. I guess he just figured it was a way to make money, a lot of athletes charge for their autographs at events, so he decided to cash in. I don't think it is being a dick, it is just trying to make a dime. I think he could be nicer about the snaping a picture thing, but I understand it.
