You’ve watched the game. You may have seen the parade and celebration. Now, collectors and fans will get a chance to meet the Super Bowl champions in person.
Twenty-six current members of the Philadelphia Eagles headline the autograph guest list at the latest edition of The Philly Show, set to take place at the Valley Forge Casino Resort in King of Prussia, PA, March 2-4. The show originally launched in 1975 as one of the first venues for sports cards and collectible buyers and sellers and continues today under the management of East Coast Sports Marketing.
Eagles players will appear at various times on Saturday and Sunday, while collectors browse the show floor in search of modern and vintage sports cards and memorabilia at dozens of vendor booths. Among those set to participate are Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles, Carson Wentz, Alshon Jeffery, Nelson Agholor, Chris Long, Jason Kelce and Brandon Graham, whose late game sack of Tom Brady helped preserve the Super Bowl victory. Fans can bring their own items to the show for autographs or purchase items they can have signed. Foles, Wentz and Kelce autograph tickets sold quickly but promoters were hoping to secure more tickets before next weekend.
“Five Decades of Eagles” will bring former players to the signing tables on Sunday including Pete Retzlaff, Chris Warren, Fred Barnett and Keith Krepfle.
The Eagles aren’t the only attraction for sports fans though, especially those who appreciate college football greats. Nine former Penn State Nittany Lions stars will headline the “Linebacker U” lineup on Saturday while a mini-reunion of Notre Dame’s 1988 National Championship team will also take place, featuring coach Lou Holtz and co-Fiesta Bowl MVPs Tony Rice and Frank Stams.
Former major league pitchers Bobby Shantz and Jack Fisher will sign on Friday night.
Autograph ticket prices vary by player. Complete information can be found on the Philly Show website.
Show hours are 2 PM -8 PM Friday; 9 AM to 5 PM Saturday and 9 AM to 3 PM Sunday.
WIP Radio will be broadcasting live from the show on Saturday March 3 from 10 AM – 1 PM.
Admission tickets are $8 daily with an $18 weekend pass also available. Kids under 12 will be admitted free.
