Fans will have the opportunity to meet and get free autographs from a number of former Yankees players, including Doc Gooden.
MAB Celebrity Services invites you to spend “A Glorious Day with the Amazin’s” on Saturday, Nov. 14, at the Crowne Plaza Fairfield in Fairfield, New Jersey.
Twenty-two current and former New York Mets will be guests at the autograph show, including members of four of the five Mets teams that played in the World Series.
Highlights of the show include appearances by Travis d’Arnaud, Endy Chavez, Billy Wagner, Sid Fernandez, Dwight Gooden, Mookie Wilson and Jon Matlack, as well as non-Mets guests Ozzie Smith, Whitey Ford, Don Mattingly and Bill Buckner.
This October will be the 15th anniversary of the New York Mets’ last World Series appearance… but not surprisingly, the folks at MAB Celebrity Services are only interested in the winners of the 2000 World Series.
Next weekend, they’ll hold “Pinstripe Pandemonium,” a celebration of the 2000 New York Yankees World Championship team. The show will also feature appearances by other Yankee “legends” and three of the four newly-elected baseball Hall of Famers.
Fans will have the opportunity to meet and get autographs from former Mets Pedro Martinez ($159+), Doc Gooden ($35), Doc Medich ($20+), Rick Cerone ($30), Paul Gibson ($25), Mike Stanton ($25+) and Shane Spencer ($20).
I don’t expect to get anything signed at the show – I already have all of the ex-Mets and cannot even think about paying the $199 fee to have Randy Johnson sign an 8×10 photo – but I plan to tag along with my friend who wants to see Martinez and Johnson. Maybe I’ll find an inexpensive card or two to add to my Mets autograph collection while I’m there.
Pinstripe Pandemonium will be held at the Hilton Hasbrouck Heights-Meadowlands in Hasbrouck Heights on Saturday, Jan. 24 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, Jan. 25 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. For more information, including the full guest list and prices, visit mab-celebrity.com.
