January 11, 2011

Attendees at the upcoming Sports Licensing and Tailgate Show will experience a little extra star power. Two Hall of Famers will be making booth appearances during the three-day, trade-only event at Mandalay Bay.

NFL superstar Eric Dickerson will be meeting and greeting retailers at the Champion Treasures booth Monday and Tuesday from 2:00 to 3:00. The company carries a wide array of pro and college licensed novelties, gifts and collectibles.

Dickerson first made headlines as part of SMU’s Pony Express backfield with Craig James. He gained over 4,000 yards and set all kinds of Southwest Conference rushing records. As an NFL rookie with the Los Angeles Rams, Dickerson set new records with 1,808 yards and 18 rushing touchdowns in 1983.

In 1984, Dickerson established a new standard with 2,105 yards on the ground—a record that has held up for more than a quarter-century. He topped 1,000 on each of his next five seasons. Dickerson played for the Colts, Raiders and Falcons before retiring in 1993 with 13,259 yards and 90 rushing touchdowns. He was enshrined in Canton in his first year of eligibility.

NHL legend Marcel Dionne

NHL legend Marcel Dionne will be at the Rally Face booth. Dionne has an ownership interest in the company, which makes masks for fans who want to show team spirit without painting their faces.

Dionne played 18 stellar seasons in the NHL. he began his career as a teammate of Gordie Howe’s on the Detroit Red Wings in the early 1970s. He truly hit his stride during a decade-plus with the Los Angeles King, centering on the Triple Crown Line with Dave Taylor and Charlie Simmer. He finished his career with the New York Rangers.

Dionne finished his career with 731 regular-season goals and 1,040 assists. Only Wayne Gretzky and Mario Lemieux had more 100-point seasons. Dionne entered the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1992. He also was immortalized on a Canadian postage stamp.
