Terrible Towels are required gear according to thrill seekers Mike Foster and Eric Kramer of Charleston, SC. Mike shows his support at 10,781 feet on Mt Baker in Washington State (above) and Eric stands proudly on Denver Glacier in Skagway, Alaska. Steeler Nation is alive and well in South Carolina, and in colder climates as well!

….but some of your favorite legends, including one you’ll see on the field this season, will be in VA this weekend!

Pack the kids in the car and head to the Collector’s Showcase of America Summer Show at the Chantilly Expo Center in Chantilly, VA this Friday, Saturday and Sunday!

CSA
It’s not too late! Tickets are still available, and can be purchased at the door!

“We are pleased to announce that the Pittsburgh Steelers Organization will be setting up a booth FULL of Pittsburgh Steelers game used memorabilia, past & present, at The Chantilly Show in July. — CSA.


Sports fans will have the opportunity to meet and get autographs from other big names of the game as well as MLB and NBA stars too!

This is a well-organized show and attended by many. In fact, one quick stroll through the parking lot and you’ll think you’re in Pittsburgh South. There are also many reputable sports dealers on hand selling everything from autographed items to sports cards to vintage sports memorabilia to artwork for that Man Cave.


You can see the full list of athletes, along with the day & times they will be available, as well as ticket info here.
