Authentic Signed, Unsigned, and Game Day Memorabilia for Your Collection.
Attention, Sports Memorabilia Collectors…
The Sports Memorabilia Website You’ve Always Wanted!
My name is Caleb Elrod, co-owner of Gameday Connexion. If you’re like me, you love sports memorabilia and collectibles. I started collecting when I was 5 years old. It started with baseball cards, bobbleheads, and starting lineup figures. Later in life, it transformed to autographs, stadium seats, and game-used items. You could say that sports memorabilia keeps me a kid at heart.
I am a sports enthusiast just like you. Several years ago, I decided to embark on a new journey in life. I wanted to start my own business selling sports memorabilia and collectibles.
I had 10 years of retail experience with the Dallas Cowboys football club and was ready for a new challenge. I met my business partner while working for the Cowboys (Boyd started Gameday Connexion 15 years ago doing autograph signings with athletes, and he was a wholesale distributor to us and many companies across the country) and learned that we shared the same vision. Boyd’s story was a lot like mine in that he had started collecting when he was a kid in the 70’s and his passion for collecting sports memorabilia just continued to grow. We both wanted to bring the game and athletes closer to the fans. So, we opened several retail locations in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area — and the rest is history!
Boyd and I have been working together for the last 9 years providing 100% authentic autographs and sports collectibles. There was a need in the marketplace for a place where collectors and fans could easily obtain autographs, game-used items, and sports collectibles. There were already plenty of sports clothing stores, but nothing for the collector. By this time, baseball card shops had disappeared, and we needed a place to go — so we created Gameday Connexion! We now carry over 150 teams in collectibles and sports autographs and hold player appearances in our stores and even across the country. After all, Gameday Connexion was built with you in mind.
You spoke we listened!
In our retail stores, we continued to hear the following phrases over and over from tourists:
- “I wish there were a store like Gameday in my area.”
- “Do you sell online?”
- “My friends and family would love this store!”
Consequently, we began work on a new retail website. It was important for us to offer as many autographs and collectibles, as we have in our retail stores, online, as well. Therefore, over the last year and a half, we’ve labored to make this project a reality — to bring you a trusted source of authentic autographs and licensed sports collectibles. Whether you want a bobblehead, garden flag, Tervis Tumbler, or an autograph from your favorite player, GamedayConnexion.com will have it.
Our new website has been designed with you in mind. We wanted it as straightforward and easy to navigate as possible. On our site, you can access a calendar showing dates and times for all our autograph signings, including those we arrange or the ones we participate in, nationally. From here, you will be able to purchase tickets for any signings. Also, we will be offering free content via blog posts, as well as other free materials for your use. As time goes on, we will be adding even more products and features to enhance your experience on the site.
100% Authentic Sports Memorabilia & Collectibles
One of the reasons Boyd and I started Gameday Connexion was to deal with the fraud that occurs in our industry. Personally, I’ve been a victim of fraudulent autographs on 2 separate occasions before starting Gameday Connexion. Sites like Ebay destroyed much of the autograph and collectible market because anybody and everybody sold there, regardless of their legitimacy. No oversight existed and, as a result, the fakes took over. No one who actually cares about sports fans was happy about it, either. We wanted you to have a place you could trust — knowing everything offered was authentic, whether autographs, stadium seats, collectibles, or game-used items. We wanted you to be assured, knowing any purchase from Gameday Connexion (retail locations or at our website) would be a 100% authentic collectible.
We work with some of the biggest names in the sports industry, such as Steiner Sports Memorabilia, James Spence Authentication, and GTSM. And on the collectible side, we work with Tervis, Winning Streak Sports, and SP Images — just to name a few. Boyd travels the country, going to all the best autograph and collectible shows, like the National, CSA, and GTSM.
We also offer a mail-in service for these kinds of shows. We will take your item and get it signed. All you have to do is mail us your product and pay the autograph fee — we will handle the rest. There are no lines or travel expenses for you to deal with.
We personally work with hundreds of players and their agents to hold private and public signings in our stores. You know that when you purchase an autograph from gamedayconnexion.com or one of our retail stores, it’s 100% authentic — every piece carries a certificate of authenticity.
