Weekend Autograph Opportunities: 2012 Baseball EXPO- Card Show and Exposition

Here are this weekends autograph opportunities throughout the Southland. As always, be sure to check the Blue Heaven Calendar for other events (a link can always be found on the tab at the top of this page, just left of center), and always confirm with the establishment. Everything is subject to change.


The biggest event of the weekend is the 2012 Baseball EXPO in Anaheim on Friday and Saturday. It is being held at the Anaheim Marriott Hotel and features everything from a card show, autograph guest, interactive fan zone, Baseball skills clinic, Silent Auction, Seminars and a live taping of the Sports Memorabilia Road Show. Heck, you can even get a chance to hold one of Babe Ruth's bats. Go here for more information. General admission is $10.00.

Leaf Trading Cards company will be giving out an exclusive 3-card trading card set commemorating the Angels World Series victory over the Giants in 2002. Garrett Anders, Tim Salmon and Scott Spezio will be featured, and only 2002 copies of each one are being produced. Attendees will receive only one of the cards.

Memory Lane Auctions will have a booth, and will feature a game-used bat once used by Babe Ruth. Fans will be able to pick it up and maybe take a swing. I also expect they will have many vintage Baseball cards on display; including a T206 Honus Wagner.

If the Packers are your team then Frank & Sons Collectibles show on Saturday should be your destination. See the flyer below. They will be making their appearance from 11:30 Am to 2:30 PM. Also, Marv Fleming (of Super Bowls I, II, VI, VII, VIII, and a member of 1972's Dolphins "Perfect Season" team) has been added to the autograph list. I am uncertain what the cost will be. Some details can be found here and here.
