The Edinboro University Athletics Department hosted their 13th Sports Memorabilia Auction on Wednesday, May 29th at the Ambassador Banquet and Conference Center. This year, the athletic department surpassed their 2017 figure of $25,000 on over 200 items that were auctioned off or up for bid. Some of these featured items included autographed jerseys, sporting equipment and much more from Sydney Crosby, Conner McDavid, Jim Kelly, and Roberto Clemente.
Pittsburgh Steeler and Erie’s own All-Pro running back, James Connor, was the highlight of the evening as the featured guest. Fans lined up at the door to see Connor along with multiple notable celebrities including Panthers Bill Hillgrove and Kevin-John Jobczynski, a nationally renowned Disney and sports artist. These sports legends signed autographs and interacted with guests throughout the night, which brought out the inner child for many guests!
This year was another success for the Edinboro Athletic Department and The Ambassador Banquet and Conference Center.
