The Official Patriots Player Appearance Thread
 
Hey all,

New to this forum and I love what I see - you've got a cool, laid-back vibe going on here. Anyway, I'm an avid Pats autograph/memorabilia collector - anyone ever wants to talk Patriots autographs, I'm your man. On the official site's forum, I post updates on Pats player appearances. You guys seem to be lacking a thread like this, so I thought as my first official duty I would get one going. Here are some upcoming Patriots player appearances, more to follow:

Heath Evans will be in Saugus, MA at the Square One Mall (BC Sports Store) on 2/8 from 6-730 pm.

Roosevelt Colvin will be in Natick, MA at the Natick Mall (BC Sports Store) on 2/9 1-230 pm.

Rodney Harrison will be in Salem, NH at the Rockingham Mall (BC Sports Store) on 2/10 1-230 pm.

Jabar Gaffney will be in Manchester, NH at the Mall of NH (BC Sports Store) on 2/12 630-8 pm.

Vince Wilfork will be in Providence, RI at the Providence Place Mall (BC Sports Store) on 2/16 1-230 pm.

Ben Watson will be in Concord, NH at the Steeplegate Mall (BC Sports Store) on 2/17 2-330 pm.

Mike Vrabel will be in Manchester, NH at the Mall of NH (New England Picture Co. store) on 2/15 7-830 pm and at the Providence Place Mall (BC Sports Store) in Providence, RI on 3/2 2-330 pm.

Eric Alexander will be in Saugus MA on 2/23 at the Saugus Holiday Inn 3-4pm.

Patriots Alumni Len St. Jean will also be at the Saugus Holiday Inn on 2/23 11am-12pm.

Please feel free to add to this list if you hear anything and I hope to see some of you there!

Cool, thanks for the info. I work in the Providence Place Mall and actually have to work on 2/16, so I might have to run down and see Big Vince if I can manage it.

I have 25,000 baseball and football cards. Please buy them from me.

Please let us know.

These are pay events listed. Typical price for an autograph is $40-$60, depending on the player and what is signed, i.e. photos and mini-helmets are cheaper than balls, jerseys, and full size helmets. Inscriptions, such as "Superbowl 42 MVP" and personalizations are usually an extra $10-$15. Sometimes freebies can be attained - I recently scored free Matt Light and Jarvis Green autos. These are usually hosted by stores and resteraunts doing "Grand Openings" or special events. Signings conducted by sports memorabilia stores, such as BC Sports, New England Picture Co., Gridiron Authentics, Signature Collectibles, etc. will charge a fee. If you show up to any of these events with about $60 you'll be fine - more if you need to purchase an item to be signed. I personally like mini-helmets best, they display real nice, though balls are cool too.

If anyone needs exact pricing for a specific event you can check the home page for the sponsor (ie BC Sports Collectibles) or PM me and I can relay the info. Note that the Holiday Inn signings in Saugus are a Card Show event hosted by Downtown Sports Shop - they have a website, too.

Another great venue for freebies, BTW, is to attend Training Camp in Foxboro. This year I got autos from Wilfork, Bam Childress, and Billy Yates, all for free at TC. More on that as next season approaches...

Den-in-NH 02-02-2008 09:09 PM

Another great free event is coming up at Foxwoods Casino after the Superbowl. Donte Stallworth, Ellis Hobbs, Maroney and others will be attending a Post-Season Party. This event however, is a VIP, exclusive for those who have lost a lot of money to Foxwoods! If anyone else has recieved an invite for this and plans on going PM me.

Sorry brother, I don't like cards. I like photos and equipment that display better.

Thanks for the welcome, ss. Yes I saw the girlie thread! Kudos!! I have been suspended on several occassions from the official site's forum for posting similar pictures. I'm glad there is a place for Pats fans that is not so uptight and PC. Well done!

Den-in-NH 02-04-2008 11:53 PM

Kevin Faulk will be at the Sports Treasures store at the Galleria Mall in Taunton, MA 230-430 pm.

TBrownslady 02-05-2008 12:07 AM

Great thread thanks for starting this Den! I might have to check out Heath Evans I was already planning on going shopping that night at that mall how convenient :)

I got a free autograph from Andre Tippett, Grogan, Steve Nelson and Russ Francis. I have a deck of Patriots cards and thought it would be cool to try and get as many as I can autographed. Guy at work was going to some meetnig at Gillette for EMC and he got me their autographs on my cards :) Now if I can just get the other 48 signed I'll have a full deck!

Thanks again for the info!!

Den-in-NH 02-05-2008 07:22 PM

Hey Virginia Pats Fans: Pats Great TE Russ Francis will be signing for Tidewater Sports and Collectibles at the MacArthur Center in Norfolk, VA on 2/18 4-6 pm. $15 autographs - any item. I've met Russ a few times and he is a supercool guy. Having been raised in Hawaii he usually adds a unique "Aloha!" inscription to his signature.

Den-in-NH 02-06-2008 03:29 PM

Wes Welker will be at the Downtown Crossing (Washington St.) Macy's in Boston on 2/7 from 5-7 pm. This is a WEEI sponsored event and autographs are FREE!
