Recap of CEI Sports Events

Welcome to 2018!

CEI sports continuously participated in many exciting events. We were employed as active consultants and personally arranged and executed many of the local events held at: Sports Depot, Collectors Den, and national shows such as Tri-Star, Finest Collectibles, Fanatics, Mead Chasky Sports, Sports Gallery, The Cincinnati Reds, the Reds Hall of Fame, the Florence Freedom, and Cincy Card shows. There are many high schools that were also involved with our services as well, for their sports night “Special guests”.

We continue to offer this level of client representation and service, to all of those entities going forward into the coming years. Certainly, we always welcome new opportunities to offer these consultative services to other potential new clients as well.

Our involvement is usually not overtly seen by the public, but most of the veteran collectors and participants in these events, know of our “Behind the scenes” efforts that we continuously perpetuate in the local and regional markets. Our involvement in these efforts takes tireless amounts of time and energy in maintaining our relationships with the players-celebrities thats we have known for many years. We are grateful to each and everyone of our opportunities that create the “One on one” experiences, that most sports and entertainment collectors seek for, their celebrity encounters.

2015-2016

This was a great set of years for interesting projects !

First off, our client and friend Pete Rose, had the fastest growing in popularity commercial for Skechers USA. What a great opportunity to work with such a class act as the team at Skechers.  We have continued on the strong path of growth in our charitable auction consignments business, as well as our graphics and large scale printing business.

We added new equipment that continues to keep us at the “state of the art” level of technology and quality.

2014

Some of things we accomplished this year are :

  • Reds Hall of Fame 3rd Floor Entrance Graphics first quarter 2014
  • Reds Clubhouse 2014 Hall of Fame 3rd Floor Graphics 2014
  • Holy Grail outfield wall acquisition from GABP and interior updates during 2014
  • And many more commercial and retail places like Longnecks Bars in Northern Kentucky and a roll out of mascot prints in the Northern Kentucky Skyline Chili restaurants.

2013

2013 was amazing year for us as we created and participated in many signings and live events for many companies in Cincinnati, Moeller-Montgomery, Sports Depot in Newport KY, the guys in West Chester OH as well as Chicago, Cooperstown, Wabash, Toledo, Indianapolis and Baltimore-Richmond.
We represent many key players and create many opportunities and ideas that sometimes just don’t speak enough about everything that we do to make these “events” happen.
The “Nasty Boys” project finally came to maturity this year. We put them ALL together for the very first time and gave it a go with the Sports Gallery gang.This was a 23 old idea that finally made it to the collector, so as to finish off those 1990 items missing key signatures from their items. It was such a success that, we are going to do it again soon….
We are going to do some more exciting things again this year, and hope that you all get a chance to participate! There will be another Nasty Boys signing and it will be during 2014 in Cincinnati-details to follow soon.
There will be more 1990 baseball veterans as well as some Big Red Machine Era veterans that will be quietly  mixed in as well….  All in all we did over 35 signings in 2013 with Rose, Bench, Perez, Morgan, Griffey, Foster, Concepcion, Geronimo,Chapman, Bruce, Votto, Braggs, Davis, Jackson, Duncan, Sabo, and a few more.We hope to see you all in 2014 at any of our direct or indirect events.
Since 1982, we have been the best at what we do, guaranteed!!

CEI SPORTS INC. Decorates Great American Ball Park

CEI Sports, Inc., a Cincinnati based memorabilia company, was chosen by the Cincinnati Reds and SportService, to consult, design, and decorate public spaces in the Great American Ball Park with historical pieces of the Big Red Machine era.

The Machine Room Grille is one of those areas in Great American Ball Park, located in the left-field corner and is a dedication to the Big Red Machine, those Reds teams that dominated all of baseball in the 1970s. This in park facility, has a blue-collar feel, much like the Reds team of that era. Brick and steel finishes, with an exposed ceiling, set the tone. Additional features of the facility include a mini electronic scoreboard, views of the playing field, mock foul poles, outside seats, the zamboni used at Cinergy Field and plenty of Reds memorabilia from CEI Sports!

Over 100 images are displayed in this facility and features ROSE, BENCH, PEREZ, MORGAN, FOSTER, GRIFFEY, CONCEPCION, GERONIMO and the rest of the best of the 70’s era teams that dominated the National League from 1970 to 1979.

This is an ONGOING PROJECT and many new items have been added,  so don’t miss visiting the machine room during the baseball season.
