    I went to the Redford Card show today (Mike Heath is signing). Good crowd considering the weather. Attached are the flyers for the upcoming shows in the Detroit area.

    Stan, Very light. Lots of dealers but not many in line for Billings. Now, this was my view at 11:15am so it may have picked up a bit. Local roads were still somewhat bad at the time.

    I obtained Rich Billings autograph on a major league baseball with an inscription "Washington Senators 1968-71". Not bad for $5. What a great guy! He told me he roomed with Denny McLain and had lots of stories. His best teammate he ever played with was Tom Grieve, former outfielder with the Senators and Rangers.

    Note for Sunday's Redford Show: Attention Collectors! We are sad to announce that Jim Gosger will no longer be signing tomorrow (Sunday Feb 11th) at the Redford VFW Hall due to weather conditions in his area. The normal show will still continue and we will still have Rich "Dick" Billings signing autographs. We will be looking to reschedule Jim Gosger and will announce updates as usual.

    I received an email that John Grubb will be rescheduled because his flight was cancelled. The show is still open for business, though. Attention Collectors! We are sad to announce that 1984 World Series Champion Johnny Grubb will no longer be signing tomorrow (Sat. Feb 10th) at the Balkan American Community Center due to his flight being cancelled because of weather conditions. The normal show will still continue and we will be looking toreschedule Johnny Grubb and will announce updates as usual.

    Lastraps, I have been looking for Toledo signings, as well and have not seen any listed during the past 6 months. Here is the link I use, scroll down a bit and you can click on the state of Ohio or any other state's signings including Michigan.: http://www.cravetheauto.com/player-appearances/ I went the Chicago Sports Spectacular Show a few years ago and it was pretty good but autographs are not cheap. There are also a lot of vendors (many from out-of-town) selling autographs, as well. This event used to be called the Chicago-Sun-Times Show. There is admission and do your homework on who is signing on which weekend day, for those interested in going to this event. http://www.cravetheauto.com/autograph-appearances/2018/03/16-18/chicago-sports-spectacular

    I agree, Stan. I do not recall very much regarding the ex-spartan Dick Billings but I do recall Jim Gosger. Willie Horton'***** went over Gosger's head to give Denny McLain his 30th victory. Jim was also a member of the 1969 Amazing Mets but did not play in the World Series. Additional, he was a member of the 1973 National League Champion Mets ("You gotta believe" Tug McGraw team) but again was not when they reached the World Series. $5 for a major league autograph isn't much and when adding a free inscription it may be a good deal. I do like the idea of getting some non-Tigers in town for signings.

    Here is the flyer for the next Redford Show in March. Two non-Tigers but Michigan residents will be signing. Rich Billings and outfielder Jim Gosger.

    I read at the link below that '68 Tiger Tom Matchick and 1988 Tiger Luis Salazar were to be the Troy signers for January. It doesn't indicate what hours/days each player is signing. http://www.cravetheauto.com/autograph-appearances/2018/01/19/tom-matchick-luis-salazar-former-detroit-tigers

    Jack will be back for sure in 2018, perhaps the weekend his number is retired by he Tigers, if not sooner. I am pretty sure that he can only sign with a HOF '18 inscription AFTER he is officially inducted (but not 100% sure). I usually see Chet make the rounds every 12-18 months so be patient with his autograph and you will get it. You have a very nice ball in progress, Adam.

    Here are the flyers for the next Taylor Town and Redford shows in January. If you do not already have Wayne Comer's autograph you may want to consider getting him. The 73 year old is a member of the 1968 WS Champion Tigers and an original Seattle Pilot and Milwaukee Brewer. I will not be able to attend next week's event in Troy. Hopefully, somebody can post the flyer or type the signer information for their January show. Thanks.

    Thanks AHarvey. Jack Morris' autographed ball with an inscription has gone up $10 since the past summer. Once he makes the HOF, I bet he will be charging double from this upcoming show.

    Yes you did Stanpapi! I attended both the Redford Show and Taylortown shows today. I needed to get Roger Masons autograph on an offcial MLB ball. Not very busy at either venue while I was there. No line for either Mickey Stanley (1130 am) or Mason (1 pm).
