LAS VEGAS (Feb 11, 2013) – Signed baseballs from luminaries across the sports & entertainment spectrum will be featured in the annual Industry Summit silent auction, thanks to Onyx Authenticated.

The innovative Florida-based manufacturer has donated a selection of autograph baseballs – all signed on the sweet spot – from notables such as Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Dennis Rodman, Stan Lee, Vince Neil and Hulk Hogan. The Onyx-branded items will be a featured offering in the Summit’s silent auction, scheduled March 18 during the sports card and collectible industry’s annual trade show.

“We’re excited to share these items, signed by top stars in their respective industries, with our friends and clients at this year’s Summit,’’ Onyx Authenticated principal Lance Fischer said. “These stars signed each MLB baseball on the sweet spot – I can’t wait to watch Summit retailers bid for the opportunity to take these great items home to their customers.’’
Onyx returns for a third consecutive year as one of the Industry Summit’s featured exhibitors – and like 2012, when Onyx unveiled its first trading card product, Fischer promises a surprise announcement.

“Last year’s announcement of our expansion into trading cards, and the response it generated from retailers and collectors, was incredible,’’ Fischer said. ‘’This year’s announcement is a legitimate innovation – I can’t wait to share it with our industry friends at this year’s Summit.’’
