The McClemmy Companies (TMC) of Costa Mesa CA will host the 2012 Baseball EXPO and Sports Memorabilia Road Show at the Anaheim Marriott Hotel on the opening weekend of the 2012 Major League Baseball season. The two day event is scheduled for April 6 & 7, running from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. both days.
The EXPO will feature over 100 exhibit booths where baseball and sports vendors of all types will be selling and displaying "merchandise and sports-related goods" according to a company news release. Attendees will find more than 20 current and former professional baseball players signing autographs throughout the show and PSA/DNA will be on site to authenticate the signatures with their "In-the-Presence" service. PSA will also be accepting submissions for all of their services such as trading card grading and autograph authentication.
Memory Lane, Inc. will offer fans the chance to swing an original Babe Ruth game-used bat and also display other rare and unique memorabilia. Fans can see the world's highest graded and most valuable collection of Mickey Mantle baseball cards, featuring a 1951 Bowman rookie card in PSA 10 and a T206 Honus Wagner.
Former Dodger Steve Garvey is among the players scheduled to appear.
Fans may bring sports memorabilia to the EXPO and have it examined by industry professionals. Some will be selected to participate in a live taping of a TV show.
