Manny Ramirez autograph signing canceled

NASHUA – Unable to sell enough tickets, Nashua Sports Collectibles canceled its scheduled Sunday autograph signing with World Series MVP Manny Ramirez.

Ramirez was originally set to be at Nashua Sports Collectibles, 135 Main St., from 5:30-7 p.m. Tickets to the signing were $300 per autograph and were available only prior to Sunday’s event.

But the signing was called off because only 115 tickets were sold as of Saturday night. Store owner Bill McLaughlin said he needed to sell more than 300 tickets just to break even.

“The demand wasn’t there,” McLaughlin said Sunday afternoon. “The agents wouldn’t help defray the costs. If the show went on, we would have had to close the store tomorrow.”

McLaughlin said he is in the process of refunding those who purchased tickets.

“Everyone’s getting refunded,” McLaughlin said.
