Phillies & Steelers Card Show Day!

Today I attended the 34th annual Ephrata Lions Club Sports Card & Memorabilia Show.  The show takes place at the Ephrata Rec Center which is in Ephrata, PA.  I’ve been attending this show ever since my early days of collecting.  How long ago is that?  Well lets just say that when I first started going I would buy older packs (1987 Topps) and hope to pull a valuable card.  Overproduction was not a word in my vocabulary at the time.

The main reason why I go is because they usually have a lot of Phillies stuff.  In addition to that, the Lions Club brings in a good Phillies player from the past to sign autographs.

My pickups include the following:

  • Harry Kalas 2012 Reading Phillies talking bobblehead
  • Darin Ruf 2010 Bowman Chrome #122
  • Veteran Stadium – 1971 – 2003 – Final Season pin
  • (1) 2012 Topps Valor Football box – break/review can be seen here

Former Phillies pitcher Steve Bedrosian was signing autographs for fans.  Bedrosian won the N.L. Cy Young Award in 1987 and got a World Series win with the Twins in 1991.

I’ve been wanting to pick one of these Harry Kalas talking bobbleheads up for awhile.  Upon pushing the button, you can hear Harry call the last out of the 2008 World Series.

At the same time the Lions Club Sports Card & Memorabilia Show was going on, over at the Harrisburg Mall the Big 33 was holding their own show.  Since we pass the mall on the way home, it couldn’t hurt to stop in.  When we arrived people were lined up all the way down the entire length of the mall.  Everyone was waiting for Franco Harris.  About five minutes of waiting, Franco Harris came walking by, said “Hello”, and went to work.  There were many other players from the Steelers, Penn State, and Notre Dame scheduled to sign this weekend.
