A tradition continues in Cincinnati this weekend with the annual three-day sports card show at Moeller High School. The ‘Thanksgiving Show’ has been a fixture since the late 1980s.
Held in the school gym, the show usually draws a sizeable crowd. Several dozen dealers and about 150 tables worth of cards and memorabilia will be there.
Autograph guests this year include 1970s Reds stars Tony Perez, Ken Griffey Sr., George Foster, Dave Concepcion, Cesar Geronimo and Don Gullett.
SGC will be accepting card submissions and doing on-site autograph authentication.
Show hours are 11-8 Friday, 10-5 Saturday and 10-4 Sunday. It’s $3 to get in and $6 for a weekend pass.
If you’re on the east coast, there’s also a large three-day show at the Westchester County Center in White Plains on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Admission there is $10 per day.
Keith Hernandez, Bucky Dent and Mike Torrez are among the guests.
JSA will be doing autograph authentication.
Show hours are 1-7 Friday; 10-5 Saturday and 10-4 Sunday. Admission is $10.
We’re not sure what’s kept 80-year-old Jim Brown so busy over the last few years that he couldn’t find a few minutes to sit down and sign some cards for Topps but he’s apparently done so at long last according to the company’s weekly ‘Redemption Report’.
Brown has returned his Topps Five Star cards from 2012 which means if you pulled a redemption card for a Brown auto from that product and sent it in (and you haven’t passed away in the meantime), you’ll soon be getting your autograph.
Very nice story out of Indianapolis, where Steph Curry stopped by Riley Children’s Hospital while the Warriors were in town to play the Pacers.
Curry visited with one youngster who collects his basketball cards. You can check out the story and video here.
