Mounted Memories will be running its first annual summer show, titled “The FANSEDGE SPORTS SPECTACULAR,” July 16-19. This show will now be run in conjunction with both the March and November shows that have been a long running fixture in the Chicago land area in association with the Chicago Sun-Times, and once again be held at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Ill.
The four day event will bring a new twist to the collectibles industry with the first ever “Hobby Bailout – Collector’s Stimulus Plan” being planned for Friday, July 17. The concept here is to help out both collectors and dealers by “Rolling Back Prices” on autograph guests. There will be over a dozen players that will be offered under this plan, including Pete Rose – Reg. $69, only $39, Dick Butkus – Reg. $89, only $49, etc.
The show will also boost more than 1,000 free autographs randomly given away over the course of the four days from some of the biggest names in sports: Peyton Manning, Dick Butkus, Gale Sayers, Pete Rose, Carlton Fisk, etc.
“This is unheard of in our industry” said Mitch Adelstein, President of Mounted Memories. We want to help give back to the collectors and dealers who have supported us for the past twenty years in this industry. The Spectacular will open on Thursday, July 16th as “White Sox Night” with several past and present White Sox players on hand to sign autographs. Admission will be free to everyone on Thursday. Bring the family. Another new twist will be the “Interactive” area which will include things like “Human Fooseball”, a 75 ft. Inflatable Obstacle Course, Moonwalk, miniature golf course, and much more. This interactive area will run Friday thru Sunday of the show.
The weekend will host a huge array of signing superstars including: Cal Ripken Jr., Ernie Banks, Gordie Howe, Bill Russell, Peyton Manning, Rick Flair, Brandi Chastain, Robin Yount and many, many more to be added shortly, over (50+) guests in all.
