Luv Ya Blue Reunion at Upcoming Memorabilia Show
Getting all the icons of the Luv Ya Blue-era Houston Oilers together in one spot -- and happy to sign autographs -- is pretty rare, but it's happening.
The 25th annual Tristar Collections show this weekend will feature almost all of the major figures from that era: Bum Phillips, Earl Campbell, Dan Pastorini, Billy "White Shoes" Johnson, Elvin Bethea and more.
More than 20 members of the late-'70s Oilers will be there.
"This will be the first time ever that collectors will have the opportunity to obtain exclusive, hand-signed "Luv Ya Blue team memorabilia, which will be highly prized and collected for many years to come," said show organizer Jeffrey Rosenberg, President of TRISTAR. "This is by far the most popular group of teams in the history of Houston sports...It was a special time to be a sports fan in Houston, and their fans and collectors will have a very special reunion weekend."

The show is at the Reliant Arena, and you can bring along items to be signed.
Of course, you will pay out the ass for the privilege, but we know how you autograph hounds are.
Tristar says the event will mark the "first-ever Houston sports memorabilia show" by Phillips, which we find difficult to believe, but maybe he's trying to drum up support for his son Wade, the new defensive coordinator of the Texans.
