Saints jerseys, tickets up for grabs this weekend

Saints jerseys and helmets signed by head coach Sean Payton and Drew Brees, and two club level tickets and two sideline passes for the Aug. 26 preseason game against Pittsburgh in the Mercedes Benz Superdome are among the items being offered in a silent auction Saturday night during the New Orleans Saints Hall of Fame Road Show in MGM Park.

The event starts at 6 p.m. and includes displays of Saints Hall of Fame mementos through the years. More than 24 Saints stars of the past and current Saints players will be in attendance to sign autographs, take photos and interact with the crowd. The Lombardi Trophy presented to the Saints after their victory in the 2010 Super Bowl will also be on display.

“Saints fans of all ages will enjoy the opportunity to meet some of their heroes through the years and create their own memories with autographs and photos,” said F. Cliff Kirkland, who is producing the event on behalf of the City of Biloxi. “The players will interact with the audience for at least two hours and during that time everyone will have a chance to bid on auction items like a Schechter Saints guitar signed by Brees and Payton, a signed Cam Jordan game jersey and even a team-signed New Orleans Pelicans basketball.”

NFL Hall of Famer Rickey Jackson and fellow Superdome Ring of Honor star Morten Andersen headline the list of players participating.

Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for children, and are available at the MGM Park box office and through Ticketmaster.
