One of the hobby’s longest running sports card shows is back this weekend. The Philly Show, a fixture in eastern Pennsylvania since 1975, sets up shop at the Valley Forge Convention Center Friday-Sunday. Among the autograph signers is Philadelphia Eagles’ quarterback Michael Vick.
Vick is scheduled to sign Friday night, along with former Eagles Randall Cunningham and Fred Barnett and current player Darryl Tapp. Vick’s resurgence after spending time in prison for helping run a dog fighting ring has been one of the year’s major NFL stories. Considered one of the league’s hottest autographs prior to his conviction, Vick’s prices have come down. Show promoter Hunt Auctions has set fees at $55 for flats, $65 for helmets, jerseys and other equipment. Add $20 if you want an inscription.
