It’s far from complete, but collectors who spend their National Sports Collectors Convention in the autograph lines now know at least some of the signatures they’ll have a chance to snare.
TriStar Productions has announced the first wave of signers for the show, which is scheduled to take place in Atlantic City July 29-August 2.
As usual, baseball dominates the list with some familiar names on the schedule including Roberto Alomar, Craig Biggio, Jeff Bagwell, Harold Baines, Andre Dawson, Steve Garvey, Reggie Jackson, Randy Johnson, Eddie Murray, Mike Schmidt, Ozzie Smith and Dave Winfield. Eleven-time Gold Glove winner Keith Hernandez and ten-time honoree Andruw Jones will be making his first NSCC appearances.
Hall of Fame running back Larry Csonka will also appear at the National for the first time along with fellow Hall of Famers Joe Montana, Dan Marino, Barry Sanders and Jim Kelly. Heisman Trophy winner Ricky Williams will also be making his first trip to the show as will Basketball Hall of Famer Bernard King and pro wrestling legend Trish Stratus.
The first names on the VIP autograph list include Everson Walls, Joe Klecko, Micky Morandini and Tommy Greene.
A complete list of signers is available on TriStar’s website.
More players and a schedule of when they’ll appear will be added later this spring.
