(New Buffalo, MI) - A former Chicago Cubs superstar will be in the area this evening.
Andre Dawson, a National Baseball Hall of Fame member and eight-time MLB All-Star, is scheduled to be at The Sports Card Shop on U.S 12 just west of New Buffalo.
Owner Rex Gotcher said Dawson would sign autographs and take pictures from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. (EST). Dawson will be the first professional athlete to appear in his store, which opened about two years ago.
“We’re honored, and we’re excited that he would take time out of his schedule to come visit us over here,” Gotcher said.
Gotcher said admission is free, but autographs will cost anywhere from $49 to $69 depending on what’s presented for Dawson to sign.
Dawson played six seasons for the Cubs. He hit 438 home runs and drove 1,509 runs in a career that began in 1976 with the Montreal Expos.
