The Eagles’ quarterback showed up as promised for an autograph signing session in New Jersey over the weekend. Butler is Eagles’ country for the most part, and dozens of fans lined up to pay for a Vick signature.
Across the street was a large group of people holding signs and yelling at those who ventured inside. The protest had been in the planning stages ever since word of the Vick appearance began circulating online.
Vick showed up late, but eventually spent more than two hours at Butler Sports Cards taking photos with fans and signing autographs while a sizable contingent of police officers kept the protestors separated from the crowd of autograph seekers.
No one was arrested, but there was a difference of opinion on whether Vick is an appropriate autograph guest.
