Former Baltimore Orioles pitcher and Baseball Hall of Famer Jim Palmer is scheduled to sign autographs during the 37th annual Ephrata Lions Club Sports Card Show.  Additional information about the show and signing can be found on the Ephrata Lions Club website.  The next show takes place on Saturday, March 19, 2016.  If you plan on getting an autograph, I recommend getting there early.  The sooner you get your autograph ticket, the earlier you’ll be able to get your autograph.  Tickets for Steve Carlton sold out fast last year.

The Ephrata Lions Club Show is usually a good one.  While attending the show last March, I opened a few boxes of 2015 Leaf Metal Football.  Those two boxes contained a Jameis Winston autograph #’ed/10, and an Amari Cooper autograph #’ed/1.  Over the years I’ve also found lots of stuff for my Harry Kalas collection too.

I’m not sure if I’ll go to this show.  When the National Sports Collectors Convention was in Baltimore for the first time in 2010, I got Jim Palmer to sign a bat.  I really don’t need to get his autograph again.  Who knows?  Maybe I’ll just go for the show.

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