Default Tri*Star Houston Show

I'm planning on making the trip down to Houston for the show at the end of January. I am only planning on going on the 27th (Sunday). This is when most of the baseball players will be there. I want to get the VIP package to get to the front of the line, but not all the free Auto tickets are important to me. To offset the cost I am offering this autos if anyone wants them (please note that you will be paying for the ball/bat as well). These players are available:
Jose Canesco, Jarred Cosart, George Springer.


I would also be willing to pick up some autos for you guys, just let me know who and what item you want signed. This link gives you the info on who will be there, remember I will only be there on Sunday, 27th.

I'm getting Mike Tyson's auto there on Saturday for a buddy of mine and I'll do some shopping before and after. We need to plan a meet-and-greet.

If anyone else wants Iron Mike's autograph just LMK. As long as I don't have to wait in line twice I don't mind handling it for trustworthy members. He's $140 for flat items plus another $7 if you want TriStar authentication on it.

His auto is one of the few that you can pay or at a show and break even if you were to sell it on the secondary market. I'm considering getting a 2006 Ginter card of him signed myself and selling it. I think I could get at least $175 for it

You Might be able to get 175 there and make a little.

I was thinking about getting a glove signed by Tyson- cost would be ~210, and it looks like one is lucky to get 190 out of it.

I just think that the charge for any in person auto should take into consideration the fair market value and leave a little room for profit.

On the other hand, I will be getting a couple balls signed by both Singleton and Correa. I'd also go for Biggio- but the price isn't quite there.

Agree. Since I'm waiting in line anyways, any bit of money I'd make would be worth it since there's no work. I'm not a memorabilia collector or boxing fan so the gloves dont appeal to me very much. If want it on a card and the 2006 ginter would look sweet

Looks like the last one sold for 83..wasn't really authenticated properly..idk why they didn't encapsulate the one w/ the auto.

Would you be willing to get me Rodmans on a 16x20 if I paid for it all up front?

Interesting. Never attended one myself, but I was considering it since I'd be in Houston for the Tristar show.

I'm trying to make it. Would be interested in your Springer purple but not for what you'd want for it. I had 4 of them at one point, all graded gem mint.

I'll come see you for sure, already told Zupster I'd stop by. I pretty much fit your description..... (relatively) young and tall. I'll bring some tradebait but usually don't bring much cash as I usually end up buying something that i don't even want. We need to start an "introduce yourself" thread closer to the show date so those going can list their real names and when they're going.
