(May 26, 2006) Tristar Productions held its second event of the year in Houston ton May 20-21. While Vince Young was the star of the company’s January event in Houston, it was his Rose Bowl counterparts – Reggie Bush and Matt Leinart – who were the anchors of the autograph stage this time around.
Fellow first-round draft picks Sinorice Moss, Santonio Holmes and DeAngelo Williams also signed at the show, just a day after posing for the card companies at the NFL Players Rookie Premiere photo event in Los Angeles.
“The show exceeded our expectations,” said Tristar VP Bobby Mintz. “The mix of players was exceptional and Nolan Ryan was also a big draw. The show was just a lot of fun. Everything went extremely smooth. All of the players were great to work with, especially the five recently drafted NFL players.”
The show also featured signing sessions with Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith and current Astros Roy Oswalt, Morgan Ensberg, Lance Berkman and Chris Burke. Approximately 4,000 collectors attended the three-day show.
