Brad Lidge Set To Sign Autographs For The 2014 Ephrata Rec Center Show

Update:

Brad Lidge will not be signing.  Hall of Fame pitcher Rollie Fingers will be attending instead.  All other details remain the same. 

For me, there are only two card shows worth going to each year.  One of them would be the National Sports Collectors Convention, and the other is the annual Ephrata Lions Club Sports Card Show.  The Ephrata Lions Club has been holding this show for the last 35 years.  Its been held at the Ephrata Rec Center for as long as I can remember, and they always have an autograph signer scheduled to appear.

Former Phillies closer Brad Lidge will be signing autographs during next year’s show which takes place on Saturday, March 29, 2014.  Lidge threw the last pitch to win the 2008 World Series for the Phillies.  Below are the details on the autograph signing:

  • Former Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Brad Lidge will sign autographs between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.
  • Autograph policies: $20.00 each for one autograph on a “flat” (e.g., a card, photo, or yearbook) or a baseball, or $25.00 each for all other items (e.g., equipment or apparel).
  • Only four hundred (400) autographs will be sold, and are only available on the day of the show.  Additional autographs beyond the initial 400 will be sold if time permits.
  • Autograph sales stop at 12:30 p.m., and you must be in the autograph line by 12:45.
  • No mail orders accepted.  No advanced sales.  No exceptions (so please don’t ask).
  • Brad Lidge appears courtesy of the Ephrata National Bank, B2B Baseball & Softball Academy, and the Ephrata Lions Club.

When I began collecting, I use to think this was the biggest show in the world.  It usually has about 40 tables packed with Phillies stuff.  That’s why I enjoy it so much.  Maybe I’ll find some Harry Kalas stuff or bobbleheads I need.

Here are some of the past shows I’ve attended:
