Alex Rodriguez to sign at National Sports Collectors Convention

There’s a new big name among the first wave of autograph signers for this year’s National Sports Collectors Convention in Chicago.

It’s Alex Rodriguez.

Once baseball’s highest-paid player, he’s a member of the 3,000-hit club and a player who hit 696 home runs during his at times controversial 22-year MLB career with the Mariners, Rangers and Yankees.

Autograph fees have not yet been posted by TRISTAR, which handles the autograph pavilion for the show, but Rodriguez is joined by a number of former MLB stars in a lineup that also includes Hall of Famers Lou Brock, Steve Carlton, Andre Dawson, Dennis Eckersley, Reggie Jackson, Tony LaRussa, Pedro Martinez, Eddie Murray, Reggie Jackson, Cal Ripken Jr., Jim Rice, Frank Robinson, Dave Winfield and Ozzie Smith. Other MLB signers of note also revealed include Pete Rose, Kerry Wood and Mark Grace. 

The roster of football signers revealed so far includes Hall of Famers Barry Sanders, Eric Dickerson, Steve Largent, Jim Kelly and Bob Griese, while other sports’ stars include Ray Bourque, Brett Hull, Cam Neely, Jeremy Roenick, Phil Esposito, Roberto Duran, Tommy Hearns, Mike Tyson and Dennis Rodman.

More signers and additional details will be revealed between now and the show, which is set for July 26-30.
