Good news Detroit residents! You can get Tonya Harding's autograph for only $10! At a mixed martial arts event Harding will be attending at the Palace of Auburn Hills in Detroit, she'll be charging $10 for her infamous signature. It has been 15 years since the "whack heard 'round the world", which did happen in Detroit at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships. Harding was banned from figure skating after her ex-husband was involved in hitting then superstar figure skater Nancy Kerrigan. About the the incident she had this to say friday
"You move on, but it still hurts because Nancy was a friend of mine. We roomed together on tour. We weren't rivals -- she was my friend and competition. The only rivals were the judges. Why would I want to hurt Nancy ... hurt anybody?"
She still denies allegations that she convinced her husband to carry out the assault on Kerrigan. Tonya Harding has attempted to rebuild her fame by becoming a boxer and give commentary on True TV's Dumbest Criminal TV shows, which I am a fan of (not her commentary but the TV shows).
Would you pay $10 for an autograph from Tonya Harding? I must admit that I am a fan of obscure sports memorabilia and no-name athletes signatures. I have a Wayne Fontes signed 8x10, Chris Shelton signed baseball cards, along with signed merchandise by Darvin Ham, Tony Clark, and several others. I would only pay $10 for a signed 8x10 of Tonya Harding acting like she was hitting me in the knee with a tire iron.
