1971 MLB Champion Pittsburgh Pirates to Appear at Memorabila Show

Sixteen players from the Pittsburgh Pirates 1971 World Series Championship team will be attending a sports memorabilia show in Moon Township, PA. Held at Robert Morris University's (RMU) Sewall Center from May 20th through the 22nd, the show will have 250 tables of cards and memorabilia. All players, with the exception of Hall of Famer Bill Mazeroski, will be charging $15 per autographed item. To get Mazeroski's signature, fans will pay $35-65 depending on the item.

The last time a similar event with the team was held was in 1991. About 5,500 people showed up for the three-day event.

The highlight of the weekend is a dinner with the players on Saturday night. Plates cost $125 per person and seating is limited to 100. Guests at the dinner are guaranteed to be seated at a table with a player from the team.

Expected attendees for the weekend events include Steve Blass, John Lamb, Bob Veale, Dave Giusti, Mudcat Grant, Bob Johnson, Gene Alley, Jackie Hernandez, Richie Hebner, Bill Mazeroski, Dave Cash, Bob Robertson, Manny Sanguillen, Charlie Sands, Al Oliver and Vic Davalillo. Coaches Don Leppert and Bill Virdon, trainer Tony Bartirome and former Steelers quarterback Terry Hanratty also are scheduled to be there.

Admission for the show is $5 per day or $10 for a weekend pass (Friday - Sunday). Kids 12 and under are free.
