Terrell Suggs To Visit Abingdon Saturday

The Baltimore Ravens linebacker is expected to be in Harford County for the opening of sports merchandise store Poor Boys.

Ravens fans may not get a chance to see in uniform until late this season, but Saturday morning they'll have an opportunity to see him in Harford County.

The Baltimore Ravens linebacker is slated to make a Harford County appearance for the grand opening of an Abingdon Poor Boys Sports store.

T-Sizzle will be signing autographs from 11 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. at the new, 5,000 sq. ft. location at 2913 Emmorton Road in Abingdon, near Box Hill Pizzaria, according to a post on Ravens24x7.

The store has asked people to buy $65 tickets ahead of time at either their Dundalk or Parkville locations. They can also purchase tickets on location Saturday, but must pay in cash.

Tickets for the grand opening get one autograph from Terrell Suggs on any item.

According to a post on the Ravens247 Facebook page, fans could also get the chance to meet and greet the alum. TSizzle55.com will be holding a $1 raffle for a chance to meet Suggs.

I presume the Klein family (ShopRite and Forest Hill Lanes) owns the sporting goods store featured here since the story amounts to nothing more than a free ad with actual ads placed next to it.

$65 to get 1 autograph...wow! And pay in cash, am I missing something? Was this for a charity?

Are you kidding? Paying for an autograph for a celebrity appearance at a new store? No thank you. It's ironic, isn't it, that the store name is "Poor Boy Sports" yet they're charging a whopping $65. Anyone who's paying $65 for an autograph can't be calling themselves poor.

These days, nearly all football players and star baseball and hockey players come with a dollar amount, set by the venue hosting the signing. It's for 2 reasons. First, is so the venue can re coup some of the money that it costs to being the player to the venue, which is always over 10 grand. Secondly, in the world of Ebay, the autograph will go for more than $65 online anyhow, so the establishment owner figures, if you wanna make the $$, you gotta spend the $$ first. All avid autograph collector's are used to this.
