Big 33’s – 2011 Big Memorabilia & Autograph Show

The Big 33 Scholarship Foundation held their Big Memorabilia & Autograph Show this weekend at the Harrisburg Mall.  The autograph guests included former Steelers RB Jerome “The Bus” Bettis, current Steelers WR  Antonio Brown, legendary Steelers RB Rocky Bleier, and former Flyers goalie Bernie Parent.

This was the first time I had attended this event.  I will definitely be going back next year.  It was very well put together and I’ve never seen a more secure setup for an autograph signing.

In addition to the autograph guests, there were a handful of vendors setup selling all kinds of memorabilia, shirts, and cards.  One of the vendors, who I see a lot of the mall shows was there selling boxes.  I purchased (2) boxes of 2011 Leaf Pete Rose Legacy.  I will be reviewing them later.

4x Super Bowl Champion Rocky Bleier – he was very social with everyone and seemed to enjoy interacting with his fans.

Slipped Through The Cracks

Last night I watched Antonio Bastardo get his first win in his ML debut for the Phillies.  This morning I thought I would do an eBay search for his cards, and too my surprise Bastardo barely has any at all.  The only card I could find was one from a Reading Phillies team set.  Being 23 years old, I thought he would have some type of Bowman or Bowman Chrome prospect card.  Bastardo looks to be one of those players that slipped through the cracks at Topps.
