April 3rd, 4th & 5th to be exact!

That’s right! You’ll want to pack the kids in the car on that first weekend of April (3rd – 5th) and head to the Collector’s Showcase of America Spring Show at the Dulles Expo Center in Chantilly, VA at 4320 Chantilly Shopping Center.

Steelers in attendance: Big Ben, Coach Cowher, Jerome Bettis, TJ Watt, Ryan Shazier, Devin Bush, Antwaan Randle El, Larry Foote, Jeff Reed, Hines Ward and Donnie Shell!

Autograph tickets are still available to purchase online or once you’re inside the door. Check under each player’s name to make sure what the pricing is for each type of item and any special info!

Admission to get into the Expo Center for adults is $5 per person on Friday (or free with an advanced ticket purchase) & $10 per person on Saturday & Sunday. Kids 12 & under are FREE!

Sports fans will have the opportunity to meet and get autographs from other big names in today’s game as well as the ‘Greats of the Game’ from not only the NFL, but MLB and NBA too: Jordy Nelson, Luke Kuechly, Nick Chubb, Joey & Nick Bosa, Tremaine Edmunds, Noah Fant, Frank Gore, Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, Barry Sanders, Anthony Munoz, Emmitt Smith, Thurman Thomas, Ronnie Lott, Champ Bailey, Jim Brown, Ivan Rodriguez (MLB), Bobby Richardson (MLB), Eddie Murray (MLB), Paul Molitor (MLB), Steve Garvey (MLB), Spencer Haywood (NBA), Dan Issel (NBA) and Allan Iverson (NBA).

You can see the full list of athletes, along with the days & times they will be available, as well as ticket info, hotel info and even a floor plan so you can find your way around this expansive show all right here.

This is a well-organized & well-attended show. In fact, one quick stroll through the parking lot and you’ll think you’re in Pittsburgh South. There are also many reputable sports dealers on hand selling everything from autographed items to sports cards to vintage sports memorabilia to artwork for that Man Cave.

Of course, if you’d like to share photos and stories of meeting your favorite Steelers players, hit me up at BigBen7website@gmail.com after the show and I’ll be happy to post them!
