Autographs & Photo Guidelines

All fans have access to the Player Photo Booths and Autograph Station lines at Sharks Fan Fest 2018 presented by Bay Area BMW Centers but are not guaranteed a player photo or autograph. In order to accommodate as many photo and autograph requests as possible, please review the important information below.

  • There will be two Player Photo Booths and two Player Autograph Stations at Sharks Fan Fest 2018 presented by Bay Area BMW Centers located on the upper concourse at sections 207/209 and 221/223. Lines will queue at the bottom of the stairs leading to the upper concourse.
  • Players attending the Player Photo Booths will not be signing autographs. Players attending the Autograph Stations will not be posing for pictures.
  • A select number of players will rotate through the Player Photo Booths and Autograph Stations in 30-minute increments. Player Photo Booths and Autograph Stations will run from 1PM to 4PM. At least one player will be at each Player Photo Booth and Autograph Station during those times. Thus, fans are not guaranteed the photos or autograph of a specific individual; regardless of it that individual was taking photos or signing autographs when they entered the line.
  • Players attending the photo booth and autograph sessions will not be announced in advance.
  • All players will be instructed to take only one photo or sign only one item per person. We will ask that you have selected item ready to be autographed, as your cooperation will expedite the flow through each line.
  • Posed photographs with players will not be allowed at Autograph Stations.
  • Near the end of each 30-minute period, each line will temporarily be halted in order to place a new player at each open station. The line will then resume movement as normal once that personality is ready.
  • Fans in need of special assistance to participate in the photo booth line or autograph line process should ask a guest service representative for assistance.
  • The Sharks reserve the right to deny any item deemed inappropriate for photo or signature.
