The winning bidders receive their spot in the 1:15 p.m.contest, four tickets to the Hawks’ game that follows at 2:05, inclusion in a private meet-and-greet autograph session with Canseco and an all-you-can-eat buffet.

Another autograph session that day is open to all fans. The private meet-and-greet is $60 and includes a game ticket and the buffet. That event is limited to 100 people.
