Considering what is alleged to have happened later that night, Justin Blackmon is probably wishing he had kept his commitment to sign autographs for collectors and fans on Saturday. At least one other big name NFL draftee was on hand for TriStar Productions’ Houston Collectors Show, however.
Robert Griffin III was among the guests at the twice-a-year show held at Reliant Arena. RG3, who according to one observer did sign his full name on every item, was kept busy, doling out hundreds of autographs at prices ranging from $109 to $163,. He joined Texans Arian Foster, Matt Shaub, J.J. Watt and Brian Cushing, Cowboys’ stars Tony Romo, Miles Austin, Demarcus Ware and Jason Witten, Deion Sanders, Von Miller, Jim Bunning and others in the signing pavilion over the three day run.
“Thank you to all the fans who came out to the TriStar show,” Watt tweeted Sunday night. “Always nice to be able to meet you all face to face. We appreciate your support!”
The show attracted collectors from throughout the southwest who mingled with dealers behind dozens of booths.
