Jack Eichel is expected to be a hit in the memorabilia world, as his exclusive deal with Leaf Trading Cards announced earlier this month shows. Now the Sabres' top pick has entered into another exclusive with a prominent Buffalo area company to be the home of his public autograph signings.
Dave & Adam's Card World has announced it's partnering with Toronto-based A.J. Sports World on a three-year deal to be the authorized outlet for Eichel's public signings outside of those dictated by the Sabres. Eichel's first signing will be held October 6 at 6 p.m. in Dave & Adam's 40,000-foot retail store at 8075 Transit Rd. in Williamsville.
Fans must purchase a ticket in advance to receive an Eichel autograph and they will go on sale Thursday at 6 p.m. during an appearance by Gilbert Perreault and Rene Robert at the same location. Only 300 tickets will be available, with a maximum of two per person.
Dave & Adam's will also be the outlet for an exclusive line of autographed Eichel memorabilia through its stores and its Web site (dacardworld.com). The company is planning a second Eichel autograph signing early in 2016.
This is the second-straight year Dave & Adam’s and A.J. Sports World have teamed for autographs signing with a prominent Sabres rookie, as 2014 No. 2 overall pick Sam Reinhart has done signings at the store.
A.J. Sports World is an industry leader in autographed memorabilia whose exclusive clients include No. 1 overall pick Connor McDavid as well as current and former players like Jarome Iginla, Steve Yzerman and Doug Gilmour.
