It is indeed tacky, unless the seller desperately needs to money in order
to pay his tuition at medical school or something.  You just never know. Of
course if the jerk just got an autograph and drawing specifically so he
could sell it, he is beneath contempt. (Which is why some nice people are
reluctant to give away free drawings or autographs). But if you have to
sell your prized possessions in order to buy food for the kids, you can
certainly be forgiven. Unfortunately there's usually no way the rest of us
can tell.
