James Worthy, Lamar Odom, Quentin Richardson, and Darius Miles headline the biggest collectibles show on the West Coast June 30-July 2, 2022
(Long Beach, California — June 16, 2022) — Four popular scoremakers from the National Basketball Association (NBA) will be hooping up their signatures at the Long Beach Expo. Southern California’s largest collectibles show, which begins at the Long Beach Convention Center Thursday, June 30, 2022, will offer a roster of stars that includes James Worthy aka “Big Game James,” Lamar Odom, Quentin Richardson, and Darius Miles.
“It’s a thrill to have four of the NBA’s biggest playmakers on our ‘home court’ at the Long Beach Expo,” said Professional Coin Grading Service Events Manager Samantha Dark. “All four of these beloved Los Angeles-area stars are excited to meet their fans, lay-up some autographs, and just be part of the fun atmosphere here at the Long Beach Expo.”
This exclusive signing opportunity, for which tickets are sold separately, gives collectors the chance to not only meet some of the biggest stars from the Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers, but also make their memorabilia one-of-a-kind collectibles with autographs from these popular athletes. A wide variety of collectible coins, stamps, trading cards, and sports items boast basketball-related themes and are perfect for signing by any or all of the NBA stars in attendance at the Long Beach Expo.
Lamar Odom was known as the 6th Man of the Year for the LA Lakers during the 2010-2011 season, while James Worthy went down as one of the 50 greatest players in NBA history after retiring from his decade-long career with the Lakers in 1994. Quentin Richardson inspired glory under the nets during his multifaceted career as both a player for the Clippers and NBA coach, and Darius Miles was a power player for the LA Clippers and on the silver screen with a marquee of credits in films like National Lampoon’s Van Wilder and The Perfect Score.
