[Autograph Signing] K&S Wrestlefest has done it once again. We will be conducting a private autograph signing with non other than Kevin Von Erich. This signing will be taking place sometime the week of July 22 – July 29 due to Kevin’s very busy schedule. The reason for the private signing is that Kevin schedule at this time won’t allow a public signing. Kevin has informed us that if his schedule allows he will be contacting K&S Wrestlefest for that much anticipated public signing. We understand this is a very last minute announcement but we had to work things around Kevin’s very hectic schedule. We will need all orders & items by no later then July 21.
