The Atlanta player that I referenced in my previous post did autograph signings as a minor leaguer in 1995 to save money to buy a cheap used car. Since 1996 he has put over $88,000,000
in the bank and he will earn over $15 million next year alone.
If you don't think athletes make enough money, take a gander at Michael Jordan's house...
