Authentic Memorabilia from Sports Legends to be Exhibited at Philly’s Casino

PHILADELPHIA — June 12, 2013 — Just in time for Father’s Day, SugarHouse Casino will host a sports memorabilia showcase offering a variety of gift options and collectables to get dad or the ultimate sports fan on your list, starting tomorrow, June 13.

Sports Vault is bringing a wide selection of sports memorabilia to SugarHouse Casino June 13—15 from 12—8 p.m. and June 16 from 10 a.m.—6 p.m. at The Refinery restaurant and bar. The event will include autographed items from today’s local and national sports superstars, as well as timeless sports legends.

The authentic sports paraphernalia on display will be from NBA, NFL, NHL and MLB teams and athletes, and all will be available for purchase. Guests are also welcome to just peruse the displays and take a trip down memory lane through their favorite moments in sports.

“We know Philly loves its sports and phanatics of all sorts will love the items we’ll have on display,” Wendy Hamilton, general manager of SugarHouse Casino said. “Even if you already have a gift for dad, just looking at these treasures will be a fun experience for any fan.”

Some of the items include:

  • Autographed item of Phillies closer, Brad Lidge and catcher, Carlos Ruiz, celebrating winning the 2008 World Series.
  • Framed 16×20 signed collectable from the Philadelphia Eagles team that played in the infamous “Fog Bowl,” a name given to the playoff game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Chicago Bears on Dec. 31, 1988.

  • Jim Bunning autographed, framed 16×20 photo, inscribed with “Perfect Game 6/21/64.”
