Welcome to the Powers Sports Memorabilia Show, where we delve into the world of sports signings and meet the legends behind the autographs. In this episode, we're taking you behind the scenes of what it's like to do a signing with none other than basketball icon Larry Bird.

Imagine stepping into a hotel conference room early in the morning, anticipation buzzing in the air. Larry Bird, the legend himself, is about to arrive. But this isn't your average meet-and-greet. There are rules to follow, and the atmosphere is all business.

Before Larry Bird even walks in, payment is settled. No exceptions. As he enters, there's no time for small talk or background music—just a focused, efficient session. Each piece to be signed is meticulously counted beforehand to ensure no one tries to sneak in extra items.

Larry Bird is a man of few words during signings, preferring to let his signature do the talking. But don't mistake his quiet demeanor for aloofness. He's all about the task at hand, making sure each signature is perfect. He'll sign where you want, change pens, and ensure your memorabilia is top-notch.

Despite the strict atmosphere, Larry Bird's signature remains highly sought after. His autograph is legendary, and fans know they're getting a piece of basketball history when they leave with his signature.

And just when you think it's all business, Larry surprises with a personal touch. He might record a birthday video wish or pose for a photo at the end of the session—and yes, he does crack a smile.

Join us as we explore the unique experience of doing a signing with Larry Bird, where professionalism meets basketball greatness.
