This Saturday, the reigning Heisman Trophy winner returns to action on Kyle Field for the annual Maroon & White Game. On Friday, Aggieland Outfitters customers will have the opportunity to meet the only other Heisman Trophy winner in Texas A&M history!
Join Aggieland Outfitters at our Post Oak Mall location from 5pm-7pm this Friday to visit with John David Crow. The 1957 Heisman Trophy Winner will be available to take pictures and sign autographs for fans in town for Parents’ Weekend and the Maroon & White Game.
“With all of the excitement around Johnny Manziel and the Heisman Trophy these days in Aggieland, we thought it would be fun to host the only other Aggie to ever win the award,” said Aggieland Outfitters’ Director of Marketing & Communication, Dallas Shipp. “We reached out to his agent and thought that the Maroon & White game and Parents Weekend was the perfect time for the event. For the lucky ones who come by to get an autographed football from John David Crow on Friday, and then somehow score an autograph on the same ball from Manziel on Saturday, that’s a pretty spectacular weekend and makes a very cool piece of sports memorabilia history.”
Fans planning to attend the autograph session must purchase tickets at Aggieland Outfitters’ Post Oak Mall location on Friday. Tickets will be sold for $20 per autograph or photo and will be available for purchase beginning at 10am on Friday at the Post Oak Mall location only. Fans wanting to have multiple items signed will need to purchase a ticket for each item.
Shipp explained the reasoning behind the charge for autographs for this particular event.
“With the excitement surrounding Johnny Manziel winning the Heisman Trophy this year, Mr. Crow has been extremely popular for events as Aggie fans and sports collectors hope to collect memorabilia with both Aggie Heisman Trophy winners,” Shipp said. “It reached such a fever pitch early this year, that he had to hire Fiterman Sports to handle all of his appearance requests. We certainly understand that and are excited to be able to bring this event to our stores thanks to John David’s representatives at Fiterman Sports.”
Aggieland Outfitters will have several items available for sale to have signed by Mr. Crow, and customers are encouraged to bring any items with them as well.
