Default Any known chances to meet former Oilers?

Hello everyone, long time lurker, first time poster. Im sorry if this is in the wrong section due to it being oilers related, but I honestly didnt know where to post about a non-existant team. My wife and I went to the 610 fanfest today and had a great time. We were able to get Wade Phillips and Daniel Mannings autographs. I purchased a replica Oilers helmet yesterday in hopes of getting Dan Pastorini and Earl Campbell to sign it. Well I was able to get Dans auto early on, but was not able to get Earls. He had to leave early due to not feeling well (poor guy). We ran into him getting into his vehicle while leaving and he was surrounded by people begging for his autograph. I yelled to him that I just wanted to shake his hand. He stopped just for me and shook my hand while I thanked him for everything he has done for this city. Anyways, Im getting off track with my story. Bottom line is I am asking if there is anyway to find out when players such as Earl, Bathea and coach Bum Phillips might sign again. I am wanting to concentrate on the 1979 team so any other players would be wanted as well. If anyone has any info for any of this, it would be very appreciated. Thanks everyone!

(Sorry if there is a lot of typing errors, I am on my iphone)

You know, I never saw him while I was there. Wonder what happened to him.

Flight from NY was delayed. They said he 'should' get there at 3, but I wasn't about to stay around because I figured he was probably a no-show.

I think Early has a foundation or website that you can use to get his autograph. You have to pay, but its not a huge fee

I received an invite from Earl's sausage company a couple of years go for a "private event" to meet & great the legend.

I was stoked! So I took both my sons, and along with Hervoyel, we set off to meet the great Earl Campbell.

We rolled up to the George R. Brown, and lo and behold, it turned out to be a TRISTAR Show!

Damn disappointed to pay $20+ just to get through the door, and then find out that an autograph from Earl was going to cost over $100.00.

I was very disappointed and wrote his company for the misleading advertising, but they never replied.

At least we go to see him...from a distance, of course.

I think I've told this before . Earl used to work at the Skoal booth at the HLSR . We talked to him in 79 while he handed out Skoal bandits .
