O.J. Simpson To Make 1st Los Angeles Public Appearance In More Than Twelve Years

NORTHRIDGE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 28, 2005--As unbelievable as it seems, O.J. Simpson and his good friend and former teammate Al (A.C.) Cowlings will both make a public appearance in Los Angeles this weekend at the NecroComicon in the Los Angeles suburb of Northridge, Calif.

Simpson will sign autographs and pose for pictures for a fee starting at $95.00 per signature. Coincidentally, Simpson's appearance will coincide with the 10th anniversary of Simpson's acquittal for double murder charges.

“If you buy an O.J. Autograph Ticket at the door you will save $7.00 off the price of admission.”

When asked why Simpson chose now to make this appearance, Co-promoter Thomas Riccio stated: "Why not now?! O.J. Simpson is arguably the best football player who ever lived. He's a Heisman Trophy Winner, a former All American, an NFL M.V.P., and a Pro-Football Hall Of Famer. There are thousands of collectors out there who have been waiting for more than a decade to meet O.J. and add his autograph to their collection. If they come to the NecroComicon they'll get their opportunity to not only get an autograph, but to also pose for pictures with this living legend. If they can't make it to the show they can pre-buy autographs at NecroComicon.com and we'll send their autographed items to them after the show."

The NecroComicon is not your ordinary Comic Convention. This show features a Spooky House, Haunted Theme Park, Live Bands, Collectible & Memorabilia Vendors, Movie Screenings, and Q&A Panels with the stars.

O.J. Simpson, Al Cowlings, and more than 40 other celebrities will be live at the NecroComicon this Friday, Sept. 30th, 5 p.m.-11 p.m.; Saturday, Oct 1st, 11 a.m.-7 p.m.; and Sunday, Oct. 2nd, 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Rare U.S.C. and Buffalo Bills Jerseys, Helmets, Photos, Lithos, Mini Helmets, and Footballs will be available at the show, or you can bring your own sports-related items to have signed.

The address of the show is 19401 Parthenia St., Northridge, CA 91324.

To Pre-Buy tickets and O.J. Simpson Autographed Items, or for more information go to: www.NecroComicon.com.

The Red Cross is also scheduled to hold a Blood Drive at this event to help victims from recent national tragedies.

Admission for all events is $20.00; however, Riccio states, "If you buy an O.J. Autograph Ticket at the door you will save $7.00 off the price of admission."

One thing is for sure -- this first public appearance of O.J. Simpson in Los Angeles for more than twelve years makes this NecroComicon an event that will go down in history.
