Moeller Card Show updates

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.

Information from Cincy Card Shows:

Thanks for all your support over the last few signings with Cozart and Frazier as we look to keep bringing in guys for you to meet. With hearing of Pedro Borbon’s passing we have put together an event that has already started gaining a lot of attention. Ken Broo has already picked up the story and will play Pedro Borbon’s interview that we set up for him in April on his show Sunday as well as talk to Steve about Monday nights event. The following is what went out this morning to local news and radio.

Cincinnati, June 07, 2012: As most of you know by now the City of Cincinnati lost a great man this week with the passing of Pedro Borbon. Pedro was a great friend to us and had done several autograph signings over the past few years at our Moeller High School sports card and memorabilia shows. We were lucky enough to be able to bring him in a little over a month ago April 27th and April 28th to spend time with us and the many collectors that showed up to meet him.

When Pedro came in to town for us 5 years ago for the first time he asked if we could pay him the same amount whether he drove or took us up on a plane ticket. We agreed and he packed up the family and drove 1800 miles from the Mexico border with his wife Maria and kids. With this in mind as soon as we heard about his passing we decided we were going to do a fund raiser for Maria and the kids.

Monday, June 11th at Moeller High School we will be having a sports memorabilia sale and Homer Bailey autograph signing. Included in the sale will be Pedro Borbon signed 8×10’s that he did for us at his last signing. The sale will begin at 6:00 p.m. and run until 8:30 p.m. and the Homer Bailey signing will go from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. A portion of all sales will go to the Borbon family. Moeller High School is located at 9001 Montgomery Road, Cincinnati, Ohio 45242.

At the event we will also accept donations for the family. If anyone can’t attend the event but would still like to contribute to the Borbon family you can send a check make out to Maria Borbon to Steve Schell, 601 Eagle View Drive, Mason, Ohio 45040.

Thank you for everyone’s time and please let us know if you need any other information.

We hope to see you tomorrow Monday JUNE 11th!

On a side note, I had the pleasure of meeting Pedro on several occasions the past few years and he couldn’t have been any nicer. I even made it to his recent autograph signing at the Moeller Card Show back in April. It was great to see him, nice to get an autograph and wonderful to just to say hello. In 2010, I met his family at the Reds Hall of Fame Gala. They are a wonderful family and it was an honor getting to know them a little bit. I was saddened to hear that we lost Pedro last week and behalf of all of OMGreds, our thoughts and prayers go out to the Borbon family.
