Road Journal: RuPaul's DragCon and TRISTAR San Francisco

We hit the west coast over the weekend to assist our partners on-site at some awesome events! Our team strutted in style at RuPaul’s DragCon in Los Angeles, and found ourselves starstruck by the lineup of celebrity guests at TRISTAR Productions’ San Francisco Collectors Show.

Read on and learn more about our time at these amazing events!

TRISTAR San Francisco – Matt Donnelly

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of helping TRISTAR Productions at the 21st Annual San Francisco Collectors Show in the historic Cow Palace. This event is a sports fanatic’s dream come true! Attendees were able to browse memorabilia presented by 50+ vendors and secure photograph or autograph Road Journal: RuPaul's DragCon and TRISTAR SanFrancisco tickets for their favorite athletes. The event brought together an eclectic mix of athletes ranging from Hulk Hogan to Reggie Jackson to Joe Montana to Dennis Rodman. After getting memorabilia signed, attendees were given the opportunity to get the signature authenticated before they even left the event as proof of its validity.

My favorite part of working the event was hearing the stories of the attendees when they came up to purchase photos or autographs. Many commented that they had been to the event many times in the past and hoped that they would continue bringing the event back to San Francisco. The passion of the sports fans that attend the Collectors Show was contagious!

Be sure to check out for a full list of upcoming events. Next up is the Houston Collectors Show June 16-18, followed by the The National Sports Collectors Convention in Chicago July 26-30.
