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:

New York Giants – Nicks & Hynoski – Amato’s Autograph Signing

New York Giants fullback Henry Hynoski and wide receiver Hakeem Nicks signed autographs for fans at the Amato’s Pizza in Selinsgrove this afternoon.  Amato’s had plenty of items to get autographed, plus a silent auction filled with many signed pieces of memorabilia.  Hynoski is a graduate of Southern Columbia Area High School which isn’t that far away from the Selinagrove area.  I believe this was the first time Amato’s held an autograph signing at their restaurant.  Tickets had to be purchased in advance, and the lines seemed to be steady.  In my opinion, everything ran smoothly.  There didn’t appear to be any major hang-ups.  Amato’s is about 3 seconds away from my house, and this has to have been one of the easiest autograph signings I’ve ever attended.  It was very well organized.  Amato’s has great food too.  Along with their pizza, I also enjoy their ravioli and cheesesteak in the garden.

Henry Hynoski Signing This Weekend At Aubrey Alexander Toyota

Photobucket

Tomorrow 3/10/12 Super Bowl XLVI Champion Henry Hynoski will be signing autographs at the Aubrey Alexander Toyota dealership in Selinsgrove, PA from 12pm to 3pm.  This is a great opportunity for those people that didn’t get to meet him last week at the Susquehanna Valley Mall.  If its anything like last weekend, I’m sure it will be packed.
