2017 National Sports Collectors Convention Autograph Signers



By Ryan Cracknell | Hobby Editor

Every year, the National features dozens of autograph signers spanning several sports. The 2017 National Sports Collectors Convention autograph list is no different.

Organized by TRISTAR, baseball legends make up the largest chunk of signers. Hall of Famers on tap to attend the show in Chicago include Cal Ripken, Frank Robinson, Reggie Jackson, Johnny Bench and Andre Dawson. The recently retired Alex Rodriguez is making his National debut.

Football also has several players scheduled to appear. Among them are Barry Sanders, Jim Kelly, Bob Griese, Jerome Bettis and Deion Sanders.

The 2017 National autograph pavilion will have more hockey players than recent years including Ray Bourque, Brett Hull and Guy Lafleur. Bobby Hull, Chris Chelios, Ed Belfour and Jeremy Roenick are among the one-time Chicago Blackhawks.

Highlights from other sports include Julius Erving, Lenny Wilkens, and WrestleMania 33 headliner Bill Goldberg. There’s also cyclist Lance Armstrong making his first National appearance.

Those buying VIP packages for the 2017 National Sports Collectors Convention get tickets for select signers. Vern Law, Ron LeFlore and Scott Williamson are among the initial list of VIP signers for baseball. On the football side are three Heisman winners: Gary Beban (1967), Charles White (1979) and George Rogers (1980). VIPs also get to attend a Wednesday party where Jose Canseco, Nate Archibald and Ron Duguay will be in attendance signing for free.

Autograph tickets can be purchased through the Tristar website.
