TriStar Houston Collectors Show celebrates thirty-five years in the Bayou City this weekend as they open their annual sports memorabilia extravaganza in NRG Park.
Did you know sport memorabilia is so fan and investment driven a Wayne Gretzy card recently sold for $3.7 million. The sale set a record.
Sports Collectors Digest describes the event this way, "The star-studded, three-day extravaganza, the first major regional show in the U.S. over the past 15 months due to the pandemic, will feature about 25 autograph guests, including four Baseball and three Pro Football Hall of Fame members. There will be about 500 dealer tables of vendors selling every possible sports collectible, including several high-profile dealers who have not appeared at a Tristar show in years, organizers confirmed."
“I never could have imagined that we’d go 16 months without promoting a sports memorabilia show,” said Tristar President Jeff Rosenberg. “Optimism is the key word right now. I’m so excited for this show, to do what we love: going to a sports memorabilia show … buying, selling, and trading sports memorabilia … getting autographs from and photos with various sports celebrities.
“Maybe we took that for granted in the past. But not anymore.”
The autograph lineup includes Craig Biggio, Jeff Bagwell, Drew Pearson, Bob Lilly, Ted Simmons, Larry Walker and Willie Roaf, among others.

Big Think.com describes hypnosis as, "Although hypnosis has been around for hundreds of years, it is still something that even the brightest among us cannot fully understand. The earliest references to hypnosis date back to ancient Egypt and Greece. In fact, the word "hypnos" means "sleep" and refers to the Greek god who is the personification of sleep." This weekend latin entertainer John Milton will be at Houston's Arena Theatre with his showmanship on how it works in this entertainment venue.
Successor to "The Greatest Hypnotist in America" Taurus Do Brasil, John Milton grew up on stage with his father and teacher, inheriting the knowledge of hypnotism to make people laugh and also to help many people with self hypnosis.
Milton's describes his show as "highly honest work, with growth propositions to society through programming, so that values, good feelings and respect for life are re-promoted. I program many young people and children to memorize their studies more easily and to respect their parents ”.
"Over the years, many people have returned to thank me because they finished their careers or because they have grown a lot in their studies, businesses or jobs "

Hailing from Middleburg, FL the members include brothers Ronnie and Randy Winter, Josh Burke, Joey Westwood, and Jon Espy. Over their years as a band they have achieved Gold and Platinum certifications from the RIAA as well as hundreds of millions of collective song streams world wide.
They have toured extensively both in arena festival settings and headlining tours around the globe tirelessly never taking an official Hiatus or band break up that entire time (16 years). They are family owned and operated as well as having success both signed to a Major label and independently. Though widely know for their song “Face Down” released on Virgin records in 2006 the band actually only received Billboard Rock Chart # 1 status after leaving Virgin in 2011. In that time frame (post Virgin 2011-2019) the band achieved #1 SEVEN times completely independent on Billboard’s Christian Rock Radio charts! This has allowed the band to have both fans of the old and new music and ensured a longevity that the band regards as it’s most precious achievement. “I Love the feeling that I get when I see the look on someone’s face in the crowd who loves the new album and then we start up Face Down and you see them realize we are that same band.” said front man Ronnie.
