All-Star FanFest Includes Card Show, Autographs

You can find all kinds of baseball-related family type fun, but for collectors  it’s all about the card show– and the 2014 MLB All-Star FanFest autograph schedule.

More than 100,000 are expected to attend FanFest, an annual event held this year at the Minneapolis Convention Center just ahead of the All-Star Game at Target Field on Tuesday, July 15.  FanFest opens Friday, July 11.

All-Star FanFest logo 2014For five days, fans can meet MLB Legends and obtain free autographs with the admission price, which ranges from $30-35. Fans can also participate in baseball training drills, test out their batting skills in the All-Star batting cages, view hometown memorabilia and artifacts from Twins’ history, along with a collection of official awards and trophies and artifacts from the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum.

The card and memorabilia show, called Collectors Showcase, takes place inside FanFest and features a variety of dealers from around the region.

The autograph sessions are a one-per-person lineup that will include Hall of Famers, current and former Minnesota Twins including members of the 1987 and 1991 World Series championship teams and even Vera Clemente, wife of Roberto Clemente.

Most of the players will also participate in Q&A sessions and clinics throughout the five day FanFest run.

Hunt Auctions will have a preview of items in the annual All-Star FanFest auction and offer an appraisal fair throughout the weekend.

The FanFest autograph schedule is below.  Learn more about FanFest including hours of operation and discount ticket offers here.  You can also buy FanFest tickets, All-Star Game and All-Star Monday tickets via eBay here.
