We’ll be celebrating our one year anniversary at the store next weekend, and we’ve got an All-Star lineup. We’ll start with 1952 American League MVP Bobby Shantz. With a name like Shibe Sports, I figured we needed to bring a member of the Philadelphia A’s in at some point. You can bring your own thing in to be signed, or we’ll have baseballs and photos available to purchase.
On Saturday, we’ve got Ray Didinger and Glen Macnow at the store at 2 p.m. to talk sports and sign copies of their book, The Ultimate Guide to Sports Movies. When they wrap up, author and history professor Bruce Kuklick will take the stage. He’ll be discussing the history of beer at the ballpark in Philadelphia, and we’ll have FREE BEER to all who attend, provided by our good friends at Ommegang.
On Sunday we’ll have our closing party at McGillin’s Old Ale House. Not only will we be unveiling our new limited edition McGillin’s shirt, but bar owner Chris Mullin will be talking a bit about the history of Philadelphia oldest bar, and we’ll discuss some of the incredible memorabilia on their walls.
RSVP for the event here. Not only do I hope you make it, but each player who attends an event earns his quizzo team 2 points in the JGTSI!
