The Fanatics Authentic Sports Spectacular returned to Boston for a second time with one of its top line-ups in the collectibles show’s history. With appearances by more than 40 athletes, Fanatics Authentic took up residence at the Royal Plaza Trade Center in Boston on the Weekend of June 5th to bring sports fans three days of exciting autograph signings and events.
A star-studded lineup brought athletes from across all major professional sports to Chicago to meet with sports fans, sign autographs, and pose for unique photo opportunities. In addition to headliners Malcolm Butler, Dan Marino, David Ortiz, and Pedro Martinez, the Fanatics Authentic show featured appearances by a range of premier athletes, including Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota, the legendary Bo Jackson, and Dallas Cowboys Hall of Famer Emmitt Smith. The Boston collectibles show also hosted the 40th Anniversary of the 1975 Red Sox with appearances by more than 15 former Boston stars, including Carlton Fisk, Jim Rice, Fred Lynn, and Dwight Evans, as well as roll back pricing for “Today’s Stars at Yesterday’s Prices” with discounts on autographs from Steve Grogan and Dennis “Oil Can” Boyd.
