Autograph Guests Boost Traffic

Memories bring fans into one Connecticut sports memorabilia shop. The famous athletes who visit for regular autograph signings keep them coming back.

The sports memorabilia and autograph business is something Mike Riccio Jr. grew up around. He didn’t intend to turn it into a business, but now it’s full steam ahead with Legends of the Game, a shop in Westport, Connecticut.

The shop is in the shadows of New York City and the autograph guests who regularly stop by are fondly remembered by the customers who take home a piece of memorabilia for their wall.

Sometimes it’s hard to know who enjoys the memories more–the customers or the former players who made them.
