GREAT GUESTS AT SHOWTIME IN FIRST YEAR
By Showtime Sports Cards & Collectibles, Nov 28 2016 07:19PM
Since we opened in April 2016, we have been very fortunate to have great in-store guests. On Grand Opening weekend we had Jaguars Safety, Jonathan Cyprien. What a great guy, and a great start for Showtime Sports Cards & Collectibles.
Later in May we had Special Guests, 2004 Women's British Open Champion Karen Stupples, Golf Channel/NBC Announcer Jerry Foltz and 4x PGA Tour Winner Billy Kratzert. We also had in store 1983 NCAA Basketball Champion from NC State & NBC Television Play by Play Announcer, Terry Gannon.
June, brought the first Jacksonville Florida player ever drafted into the NHL, Brian Ferlin of the Boston Bruins into Showtime along with the local TV Stations.
In July we had a major in-store event as Allen Hurns of the Jaguars joined us and as you can see in the photos, both Jags and Miami Hurricanes fans showed up to meet Allen, along with a Live Remote of the Frank Frangie show on 1010xL.
Later in the year, we were joined by 2015 World Long Drive Runner Up and Jacksonville Sherriff's Officer Jeremy Easterly. Jeremy signed autographs and we brought him next door to Edwin Watts Golf Store to put on a driving display on their simulator, Jeremy repeatedly banged out drives that were registering at over 375 yards per pop. In fact you could hear the Pop (or should we say Driver Explosion) all the way in the parking lot.
Black Friday November weekend, brought in Notre Dame and Green Bay Packer Legend, Mike McCoy.
Mike was the 2nd Draft Pick in the 1970 NFL Draft. Mike was terrific to visit with as many Packer and Irish fans stopped by.
A huge Thank You to all of our guests, friends and customers for making our first season at Showtime so much fun and a terrific success.
