MAB Celebrity Services will finish the month with its traditional Yankees autograph show on January 25th & 26th at the Hilton Hasbrouck Heights-Meadowlands. This year’s theme is celebrating the 15th anniversary of David Cone‘s perfect game and the 1999 World Series championship team.
Oddly enough, Cone is not currently listed among the guests, however, several notable (and not-so-notable) former Mets players are: Dwight Gooden ($35), Lee Mazzilli ($29), Daryl Boston (1 free, additional $10), John Candelaria ($20), Gary Sheffield ($50), Shane Spencer ($25), and Ralph Terry ($30).
