Card Show with the Steelers

The Colonial Park Mall located in Harrisburg, PA was having a card show this weekend with some Pittsburgh Steelers there to sign autographs.  I decided to go since it isn’t that long of a drive.  

The show itself was a lot bigger than what I had anticapated.  I recognized some of the dealers that have been attending local shows for years.  If you were a Phillies or Steelers fan, there was a ton of stuff for you.  The promotor for the show was CAC-Shows.  They do a lot of cards shows and autograph signings in Pennsylvania and Maryland.  I believe this was the first CAC-Show I have attended.  It wasn’t very crowded, not even when the autograph guests arrived.

Two Pittsburgh Steelers were scheduled to sign autographs, but when I got there three showed up: Levon Kirkland, Lawrence Timmons, and Michael Merriweather.  All of them were really nice and glad to talk with their fans.  I got Merriweather and Kirkland to sign my football.

I did make some purchases while I was there.  Here is a video recap of what I pulled and picked up.  Browsing the tables, I did find a Harry Kalas 2005 UD Sweet Spot autograph, but didn’t buy it because of the $125.00 price.  I’m probably better off getting one on eBay.

Overall I think it was a good show and I plan to attend more in the future.  Many of the dealers had stuff I liked, and getting autographs and photos with former Steelers is always great.
