We wanted to pass along the latest information from one of our favorite events — the Moeller Sports Card Show, being held at Moller High School April 26th, 27th & 28th.
According to the email newsletter that was sent out earlier today, jockey Steve Cauthen has cancelled his appearance and Big Red Machine pitcher Don Gullet’s scheduled appearance looks doubtful. For the Cauthen fans out there, Cincy Card Shows was able to hold a private signing with Cauthen and signed items will be available for purchase at the Moeller show.
To make up the cancellations, Eric Davis has been added to the lineup and will be signing from 1:30 – 3:30pm on Saturday and 10:30am – 12:30pm on Sunday. Prices will be $20 on a small flat or a ball, $30 on a large item or equipment. A free inscription is included.
The spring Moeller Show lineup will now include Johnny Bench, Don Gullet (TBD), Norm Charlton, Arron Pryor, Will McEaney, Jack Billingham and Eric Davis. Times, pricing and more details can be found at cincycardshows.com.
Along with the celebrity appearances and fantastic dealer tables, Cincy Cards Shows will be raffling off a painting of Johnny Bench by local sports artist Brent Naughton. Here are the details:
Some of you have seen his work at the Moeller shows before or maybe you have seen his artwork elsewhere. Brent Naughton has created an awesome 11×14 painting of Johnny Bench. You can see this at www.facebook.com/cincycardshows During the show split the pot tickets will be sold for the artwork. The artwork will be signed by Johnny Bench and given away at 3pm on Saturday. The winner that is pulled must pick up the artwork from the show by 4pm on Sunday. The way the split the pot works is that tickets will be sold $10 each or 3 for $25. Half of the money will go to Brent to recoup his costs on the piece. The other half will be donated to Moeller High School. Thanks to Brent for making this possible.
Hope to see you at Moeller this weekend!
Just watchin’ the World Series, makin’ Zombies with Zombieland’s Zombify Yourself. Looks like Adam Dunn Bobblehead had a run-in with an undead while try to sneak down to the blue seats before a game at Riverfront. I told him not to go so early, the ushers are pretty hard to get past before the 3rd inning. You gotta be sly. Adam Dunn Bobblehead just didn’t listen and got himself Zombied.
Post a comment with your own Reds themed Zombies if you like.
Poor Eric Davis Bobblehead was on his way to the speed pitch up in the yellow section of Riverfront. Unfortunately, he could never remember what section it was in and walked all the way around the stadium only to run into Zombie crawling out of a hot dog stand. He and his gold chains never had a chance. You would think he would use his bat, but he just couldn’t get it off his shoulder.
Dunn just has problems, right? Well, this is actually from eating too many FuNachos. Those knock-off “nachos” will do that do ya. Oh, and looking like Spencer Pratt isn’t helping things either.
Our favorite mullet, Craig Wilson actually got himself zombied down in Sarasota while in spring training with the Reds. Why he was still wearing his Pirates uniform is beyond us. I guess he just couldn’t give it up…. or he knew that he wouldn’t be wearing a Reds uniform anytime soon.

So, is anyone out in OMGland a member of the Eric Davis Fan Club?
We first heard of the ED Fan Club (haha) last week leading up to the Civil Rights Game. It was mentioned in a couple of Reds PR releases the week before and announced at the game last Friday that he was going to be at the Reds Hall of Fame and Museum posing for photos with members of the fan club last Saturday, the morning of the Civil Right Game. Word on the street is that he didn’t actually show up – but that is unconfirmed.
The dudes here at OMGreds are big fans of Eric Davis (At least I think we all are? Are we?), just like most everyone else in the Redleg Nation. I mean, that catch in the ’90 World Series was stuff of legend, right? So, ED having a fan club or whatever is pretty cool, really. But, have you seen the membership prices? Depending on what membership level you choose, you can pay up to $239.40 for a membership! Oh, and no, there is no $19.99 option for a mildly interested fan, the cheapest your going to get is 119.40. SAY WHAAAAT?
Seriously, who on earth is going to pay that? Yeah, you get a couple of signed items and periodic “interactive” emails but really, what on earth would get someone to pay that kind of money for an Eric Davis Fan Club Membership?
Okay, there is one really cool part of the Fan Club – You can have a “WebVersation” with Eric. Dude, just call him anytime – 555-555-5555. Do it, we dare ya.
ED – really… we love ya. But, don’t play us like this.
The REAL #44, that is – Mr. Eric Davis. That’s right, Davis had been with the team working with players last month and now it’s been announced that he’ll be a roving instructor for the organization next year.
This is awesome – the club is really digging into their rich history and getting former players involved with the big league club as well as the farm system. The guys they have been bringing on board know how to play the game and how to win. This can only help our young team.
It’s obvious that this season is lost, but you have to be a real fair-weather fan to not be excited about the future.
Oh… I actually have a copy of the Eric Davis instructional video on hitting – “Hitting From The Heart“. I’ll have to watch that sometime to see what the Reds are really getting into. It should be entertaining at least.
