Cincinnati Reds outfielder Jay Bruce, who played in the 83rd Major League All-Star game in Kansas City Tuesday, will have a public signing session at the Sports Gallery in West Chester from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. Sunday.
Entering the second half of the season Friday, Bruce leads the Reds in home runs with 18 and in runs batted in with 56.
“We are thrilled to have Jay in the shop. As a leader in the National League and one of the Red’s top players we expect a huge crowd Sunday afternoon,” said Mark Fugate, co-owner of the Sports Gallery. “Being named to the All-Star team also shows what kind of player he is and it is nice to know this guy is going to a Cincinnati Red for many years to come.”
Autograph tickets for Bruce’s signature are $45 for flat items or baseballs and $65 for any bats, jerseys and equipment.
This upcoming Thursday, July 19, Bruce’s teammate, rookie Todd Frazier, will also be signing autographs at the West Chester sports memorabilia shop from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Tickets for Frazier’s autograph are $20 for any item.
In early August, Reds legends Joe Morgan, Dave Concepcion and George Foster will visit the Sports Gallery.
Morgan will sign autographs from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 2. Autograph tickets range from $85 to $100.
Meanwhile, Concepcion and Foster will both be signing autographs Tuesday, Aug. 7, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Autograph tickets are $45 for Concepcion, $30 for Foster and $65 for both autographs together.
The Sports Gallery will have baseballs, bats, photos, cards, helmets and other Reds collectibles available for purchase during the signings. Items can also be dropped off or mailed in to be signed.
