Weekend Autograph Opportunities: Manny Mota and the Long Beach Expo

Here are this weekends autograph opportunities and events 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.  Please email me with any tips about upcoming events in Southern California.  As the rest of the week progresses I'll update this post with other events (if there are any) as I become aware of them.  Also, I don't always list every event below, so be sure to check my Calendar.  I always try to favor free signing events over paying events.  Click on any pic to embiggen.


Manny Mota will be signing autographs on Sunday, June 9, 2013 from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm at Manuel's El Tepeyac in the City of Industry.  This is a toy drive.  All you have to do is bring a toy valued at $10.00 or more and you receive a free autograph and photo opportunity.  You may also pay $10.00 for an autograph & photo, but that's not as fun.

The Long Beach Coin, Stamp and Sports Collectibles Expo is this weekend.  In fact, it starts today and ends on Saturday, January 8th.  Go here for information.  This is mostly a coin and stamp show, but the sports collectibles portion has been growing of late.  Although, the dealer list looks kinda small.  It looks like there will be at least 13 different booths; including PSA, Beckett, Memory Lane Auctions and others.  Furthermore, there's a nice group of sports stars coming to sign autographs on Saturday; including Oscar Robertson, Dennis Rodman, Dwight Clark and Joe Montana.  Below are some details.  BTW, admission is $8.00, and be sure to check out their website for a $2.00 off coupon.  Also, certain Collectors Universe members get in free.
