Q:When will my ticket order ship? A:Ticket orders will begin shipping the week of January 9th. We will notify you via email once your order has shipped. No order will ship before the 9th. All unsigned merchandise will be available for pickup at the Official Show Merchandise Booth.
Q:I'm obtaining autographs from guests appearing at the same time. Will I make it through the lines? A:Yes. Each autograph guest signs until their line is gone. We give several "last call" announcements to give you enough warning time before we take a guest away from the signing area. If you don't want to wait in the long lines, check out the TRISTAR Collectors Show VIP Package!
Purchase Autograph Tickets. You must have an autograph ticket for each autograph you wish to obtain. Fees vary for each guest. Your ticket number designates your place in line, so purchase in advance to ensure low ticket numbers OR purchase the VIP Package for autograph line priority!
Don't forget the Photo Opportunity Ticket for the opportunity to take your photo with your favorite stars! Fifteen (15) minutes prior to their regularly scheduled autograph appearances, autograph guests will be available to take photos with you, their fans, at the TRISTAR Photo Booth. Receive a professional color 5"x7" photo within minutes! (Fees vary for each guest & autograph is not included).
Don't have an item to have signed? You can purchase unsigned items directly from TRISTAR! Official Show Merchandise is available for all of your autographing needs. Everything from photos to footballs to bats to baseballs to jerseys are available for your favorites to sign at the show. Items can be purchased in advance for your convenience and then picked up at the show. We recommend preordering due to limited quantities for some items.
Purchase Authentication Tickets. If you would like to TRISTAR Authenticate your autograph signed at the show, you will need an authentication ticket. Take the ticket to the TRISTAR Authentication Booth and a TRISTAR representative will hologram your item and register it in the online database at www.tristarauthentic.com.
