They're having more than 60 autograph guests, but not one, NOT ONE, ex-White Sox player. For some reason, the roster includes a Dallas Cowboy reunion. It also features guests from all other Chicago teams.

This memorabilia show has for years featured a low number of Sox players. I don't get it. I know the fall show had a number of players, even though half of them were poorly announced or no-shows. But the show has quickly reverted back to its usual self with regard to representing the Sox.

You'd think this was actually a Tribune show. A big booooooo goes out to show promoter George Johnson.

I was excited when I saw they had a date posted and couldn't wait and then got very dissapointed when I saw the list.

Geez, check out the price for an Emmitt Smith autograph.:?:
By the way, the immortal Bill Heath ('69 Cubs) started out with the Sox, if i'm not mistaken.
