Michael Vick to Sign Autographs in Butler June 19
Philadelphia Eagles player to sign autographs at Butler Sports Cards, Inc.
Vick will be in the store signing photos, jerseys, helmets and more to anyone who purchases an autograph ticket, which begins at $90.
"He's the most desired autograph in all of sports right now," said Jeff Robbins, the sports cards and memorabilia store owner. "The No. 1 autograph that people want is Michael Vick. He came back last year and it was the first year that he was ever focused on football."
Controversially, Vick is known for having spent 18 months in prison after being convicted on charges of running a dogfighting operation. Some Butler residents do not agree with Vick's appearance and have formed a Facebook page to express their frustrations.
While Robbins said inviting Vick to the store does not mean he condones dogfighting, "It was three or four years ago, people do change. He's coming here to do what he's paid to do."
In addition to Vick's appearance on June 19, Butler Sports Cards, Inc. will be hosting New York Giants running back Danny Ware on June 3 from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. Autographs will cost $10.
