MAB Celebrity Services, a New Jersey based collectibles show promoter and Schulte Sports, Inc., located in Woodstock, Maryland are teaming up to co-promote a major show featuring Baltimore sports stars, April 22 and 23 at the Pikesville, Md. Hilton Inn.
“We saw firsthand how Baltimore responded (to the event) and we look forward to working with Schulte Sports to bring another successful show to Baltimore,” said Mollie Bracigliano of MAB.
Although the Pikesville Hilton show won’t reach the 30,000 attendance mark set by The National in Baltimore, the group has brought in a good sized list of well-known stars.
Scheduled to sign autographs are Hall of Famers Brooks Robinson, Cal Ripken, Frank Robinson, Jim Palmer, Eddie Murray and Earl Weaver and newly elected Baseball Hall of Fame Inductee and former Oriole star Robbie Alomar.
In addition, all of the living Baltimore Orioles who won American League Rookie of the Year honors will appear. They include Ron Hansen (1960), Al Bumbry (1973), Eddie Murray (1977), Cal Ripken (1982) and Gregg Olson (1990). They will be joined by Davey Johnson, Ray Knight, Bob Turley, Lee May, Marty Cordova and Juan Beniquez, with more baseball and football stars to be added to the current roster of signers.
The Charm City Heroes show will open at 6pm on April 22 and close at 9pm. Admission is free Friday night with Frank Robinson and Olson scheduled to sign for the public from 6pm to 8pm.
Saturday, admission is $8 and the doors open at 9am and close at 5pm. In addition to the athletes signing all day, JSA Authentication and many of the prominent Baltimore memorabilia/collector dealers will be set up.
