Stretching Your Autograph Dollars

Start saving your loose change, skip your daily $5 mocha latte, and quit buying bottled water. There are some great autograph shows coming this summer and early fall.

Before you starting writing these down, grabbing the URLs and checking sites every day. The best way to keep track of announced guests is to get a Signingshotline.com membership. I'm not going to talk about announced guests, show announcements or anything like that on this blog until the event is over. Join signingshotline.com if you want that kind of information.

The purpose of this blog entry should serve as a wake-up call to get ready for a great summer of autographs!

  • In May, MAB has their Subway Series show. This is a great baseball show to get some of your Yankee and Mets players.
  • In July, CSA has their summer show. CSA always has great HOF football players, with a little baseball and hockey mixed in. The National is also in July. This year it is in Chicago - Triumph Sports does the autograph pavilion. MAB also has a baseball HOF show in Cooperstown, NY.
  • In August, the Football HOF in Canton, OH has their induction ceremony. The past couple of years Mounted Memories has promoted an autograph show. Some of the local Canton Malls have great guests too. I got an Art Donovan autograph at one of these malls last year.
  • In October, MAB has another show with some great HOF baseball players. CSA has their fall show at the end of the month.
I hope to make it to one or two of these shows. Its great to get the autographs and to see what projects other people are starting. I'm amazed every year at the Canton Hall of Fame show. The HOF collections that people have are amazing to see. I keep checking my signingshotline alerts to see who has been added!
